Brent sentence, not Sherman outburst, is where outrage truly belongs

Josh BrentJosh Brent pretty much got a slap on the wrist Friday for being responsible for killing somebody. Maybe if Richard Sherman had announced the verdict, the story would get the reaction it deserves.

The ex-Dallas Cowboy got drunk, wrecked his Mercedes and the crash killed teammate Jerry Brown. For that, a jury sentenced him to 180 days in jail.

He could have gotten 20 years. Perhaps we should just be happy the jury didn’t buy Brent a new Mercedes.

There will be a day or two of handwringing anger over the sentence. It will quickly fade into the DUI haze as we return to bigger stories, like what Sherman might say at Super Bowl Media Day. He’ll be the biggest attraction at next week’s circus, all thanks to his 18-second rant after the NFC title game.

In case you’re the one earthling who hasn’t seen the video, Sherman called Michael Crabtree a “sorry receiver.” He added that Crabtree shouldn’t open his mouth again because “I’ll shut it for you real quick.”

What happened in Seattle on Sunday was ear-popping entertainment. What happened in Dallas on Friday shows how trivial we have become.
