Howard Eskin vs. Richard Sherman Was Great Twitter

One of the non-Philly sports stories making the rounds on Tuesday was a one-sided Richard Sherman vs. Baker Mayfield beef, which goes something like this:

  1. Sherman claimed Mayfield snubbed him by not shaking hands before Monday night’s game
  2. video later came out showing that the two did indeed shake hands during the coin toss
  3. Sherman walked back his comments slightly and deleted a few tweets, but claimed he was annoyed that Mayfield gave him a “petty” shake before turning and running off after the coin flip

That’s the short version.

Out of nowhere then, here comes Howard Eskin, aka “The King,” telling Sherman to “shut up,” which resulted in this exchange:


Fantastic Twitter.

And Howard is not wrong with that final tweet. Sherman got caught here pushing some #fakenews.

    Eskin has the relevance of the yellow pages and typewriter

    Sherman gearing up to recruit the media into playing the race angle, and unfortunately for him his little scheme was stopped in its tracks. That’s really what it was all about. He’s a goddamn clown.

    Any truth to the “Innes returning to WIP” rumors?

  • The King is so desperate for publicity October 9, 2019 at 1:42 pm

    68 year old man who is no longer relevant sits in the basement of his multi-million dollar estate and trolls athletes because he has nothing better to do with his life. This is truly pathetic. Do you know of any other people in the sports media who do this.
