Texas A&M head football coach Jimbo Fisher crossed a line on Saturday when he violently grabbed the facemask of linebacker Tyrel Dodson in the middle of a rage.
Dodson had been involved in an altercation himself, then afterward Fisher physically asserted his dominance with the over-the-top act (watch here).
Sports business writer Andrew Brandt of The MMQB, like many of us, saw the incident and commented by tweeting “$75 million…guaranteed.”
Richard Sherman, who’s never afraid to speak his mind on issues, picked up on that line of thinking and blasted Fisher with a sarcastic tweet of his own.
Doesn’t matter what he does to these kids. He gets his money either way. Kids just have to do all the work and take this type of treatment. Seems like a fair deal https://t.co/JJhAb3wNcM

Many fans have no issue with what Fisher did, coming from the old-school line of thinking.
On a personal note, I’m with Sherman here. Coaches should be a notch above their players when it comes to emotional control and physical restraint. In my opinion, he clearly crossed the line.
