After a week of articles, blogs and opinions all focusing on Richard Sherman's post game interview, the NFL's commissioner has now had his say on the incident. And he wasn't best pleased.

"No, I'm not cheering for that," Goodell said on "CBS This Morning" on Thursday, referring to comments Sherman made about San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree following the Seahawks' thrilling 23-17 victory last weekend.

"(Sherman) is such a great young man. He is extremely well-spoken, does great things off the field, obviously a great player on the field. I want him to present himself in the best possible way and make sure that he is reflecting on himself and his family in a positive way."

Goodell also thought that Sherman's actions took the shine off his team advancing to the Super Bowl.

"He took away a little bit from the team, that's what he said yesterday, and I think that was a very interesting comment and I think that was fair," Goodell said.
