Seattle Seahawks superstar cornerback Richard Sherman stated this week that one of his top priorities if he were running for president would be eliminating the use of public money to build new stadiums.
Eric Mandel of MyNorthwest.com passed along the outspoken defender's comments, which he made during a radio appearance with John Clayton on 710 ESPN Seattle. Sherman believes wealthy team owners should be the ones footing the bill.
