• Sherman fined for “taunting”


    NEW YORK: The National Football League slapped Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman with a nearly $8,000 fine for “taunting” the San Francisco 49ers during the NFC championship game. Sherman was assessed a 10-yard penalty near the end of Sunday’s game for making a choking gesture toward the San Francisco sideline, which he said was directed at 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Sherman jumped to try and deflect Kaepernick’s pass intended for Michael Crabtree in the end zone and it was intercepted by teammate Malcolm Smith, stopping a 49ers drive in the final minute and cementing Seattle’s second trip to the Super Bowl. The Seahawks will play the Denver Broncos in the NFL’s championship showcase on February 2.
