Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman takes a lesson from Sir Alex Ferguson

The ever present Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman has voiced his outrage once again, this time its not to get attention, but to get away from it.

Sherman recently made a purchase of a new property which frankly sums up the highest paid Cornerback in the game.

Former NBA star Jamal Crawford sold his home to the Super Bowl winner recently and an article done on the transaction has sparked the outrage.

The Seattle Times was all over the story and ran it with full details, where the details are normally the best part of a story, the superstar Cornerback took exception to them.

The article in the Times included details about the house such as square footage, the number of bedrooms and the staggering $2.13 million price tag.

Details that wouldn't normally cause any home owner to be unhappy, that was until the article revealed one too many secrets of the Sherman estate.

The Times also published the address of the house which according to Sherman has led to hoards of fans situating outside the house for autographs.

CBS Seattle however has come to the aid of their media outlet brother claiming that King County - the location for Sherman's new not so humble abode, allows for property owners addresses to be available to the public.

So it could be claimed that if fans knew he had moved into the area, they could find his address quite easily.

Either way Sherman has decided on one course of action, he has decided to boycott the local Seattle media.

Sherman imitating Sir Alex Ferguson?

Sherman has revealed that he will be boycotting the local media due to his outrage over the issue, he isn't the first to boycott the media though.

in 2004, legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson began a boycott of British media outlet the BBC.

The move came after he took exception to a BBC documentary telling stories of him and his son.

Unlike Sherman, Ferguson never made it clear what exactly it was that upset him, not surprising given the nature of the outspoken Cornerback.

Ferguson's boycott lasted seven years, who knows if Sherman's will last that long, but we all know he won't shy away from telling the world his feelings so he will surely let us know when he's ready to talk to the local press again.
