The bad blood remains between cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Michael Crabtree after their infamous altercation in last season's NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.

We are all familiar with the outspoken, brash nature of the game's leading cornerback Sherman, we have also learnt that he is not afraid to speak his mind and certainly isn't backing down any time soon.

It has been months since the game clinching tipped pass by Sherman in the NFC Championship victory and even more memorable the post match interview with Erin Andrews which showed the world the enigmatic personality that is Richard Sherman. 

If you need reminding of that interview, here it is: 

Sherman hasn't finished with his berating of Crabtree, he feels the need to remind the world once more who the king of trash talk really is.

The Seahawks cornerback recently appeared on the the television show "American Muscle", he was asked about the incident months ago and Sherman duly obliged with a response.

He said: "It's much more of just I don't like the dude, You know what I'm saying. And I think he's sorry. So it's really what it comes down to."

Sherman continued by saying: ""I'm not going to be something that goes away. I hope to play him every year for the rest of my career and choke him out. There's not much else I can say about the subject. Nobody will understand it but him and me. That's all that needs to understand. It's just about him, it's just about Crabtree."

Some serious trash talk from Sherman but he has never been one to hold back, it may leave fans thinking that it would be about time to let the whole Crabtree rivalry go.
