Sherman says tweet from wife of Bills kicker not surprising

RENTON, Wash. (AP) Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman responded Wednesday to a tweet from the wife of Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter, calling her apology ''B.S.''

Sherman said he's not bothered by the message from Kaela Carpenter that was posted to Twitter on Monday night during Seattle's 31-25 win over Buffalo.

Sherman was at the center of an officiating controversy at the end of the first half when he crashed into Carpenter on a field goal attempt. Sherman was penalized for being offside but the league said he should have been penalized for unnecessary roughness for hitting Carpenter.

Kaela Carpenter tweeted a photo of a piece of farm equipment and the message, ''I know what we do on the farm when a male can't control his own rage.'' The tweet has since been deleted.

Carpenter tweeted an apology on Wednesday that Sherman found to be hollow.

''People say whatever they want, and there's very little consequence,'' Sherman said. ''For her to say something like that and then have a B.S. apology like she did, it's just the way of the world. I don't let it bother me. It's something I'm very used to. It's just the way people are, the way people were raised.''
