11. Nobody's likely to punch his mouth shut

He's already shown that he'll run his mouth, ask for it, get it and keep talking...



But I think his basic point about the word "thug" still stands, no matter how self-serving. He got fined for being an asshole, but that doesn't make him a thug. A dictionary thug is violent; Sherman is confrontational and arrogant, but I've seen no evidence that he's been gratuitously violent (he does play football, after all, so there's some necessary violence). Were he white he'd be called "brash," "arrogant," possible "classless" but certainly not a "thug" just for running his mouth!
