Prior to his team losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 54 by the score of 31-20, San Francisco 49er Richard Sherman said he doubted he’d visit the White House if his team won.
In 2017, Sherman called Trump’s criticism of players who chose to take a knee during the national anthem, like Colin Kaepernick “very divisive.”
Sherman also tweeted:
The behavior of the President is unacceptable and needs to be addressed. If you do not Condemn this divisive Rhetoric you are Condoning it!!
Mercury News reports Richard Sherman, currently in the employ of the San Francisco 49ers, is dubious regarding a White House visit should the team win Super Bowl LIV.
Yes, that’s akin to putting the video review before the touchdown pass. Sherman, one of the 49ers’ elder statesmen, knows that.
““I haven’t thought about it,” he said to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Scott Ostler. “We’ve got a long way between now and then, but I doubt it.”

In sharp contrast, per TCO, Kansas City defense end Frank Clark attended a press conference last Friday wearing a sweatshirt that has an image of President Trump with Kanye West.
Clark said the sweatshirt was given to him by a friend and called Trump meeting West a “very historical” moment.
After answering questions about his fashion, Clark talked with reporters about he feels his team matches up with the 49ers and how he tries to stay “at a simmer” to be ready for the Super Bowl without peaking early.
Twitter users were quick to point out the daring fashion choice of Clark.
Frank Clark was asked to explain his sweatshirt depicting the day Donald Trump and Kanye West first met: “Never forget. We’ll never forget that important moment in our history.” …and yes, Frank let out a very healthy laugh with his response. pic.twitter.com/kmlOmFE0yl
