NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reacted to cornerback Richard Sherman’s postgame rant on Sunday during an interview with CBS This Morning, saying that he hoped Sherman would pre-sent himself in the “best possible way” and defending Sherman’s character.

“It’s an emotional game, and you see a young man who comes off the field and he’s pumped up, and there’s so much excitement in the stadium, but no, I’m not cheering for that because he’s a great young man, he’s extremely well spoken, does great things off the field, obviously a great play-er on the field. I want him to present himself in the best possible way, and make sure that he’s re-flecting on himself and his family in a positive way. He took away a little bit from the team. That was what he said yesterday. I thought that was a very interesting comment and I think it’s fair,” Goodell said.
