Richard Sherman isn't backing down.

It's been months since the Seahawks star cornerback tipped a pass intended for 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree that was intercepted and clinched Seattle's dramatic NFC Championship Game victory. And of course, his infamous interview with FOX reporter Erin Andrews became the stuff of legend.

Here it is again, just in case you were on Mars at the time and missed it:

Anyway, Sherman is still talking. During an appearance on the Discovery Channel show "American Muscle," he addressed the incident and went into more details about his feelings for Michael Crabtree

"It's much more of just I don't like the dude," Sherman said. "You know what I'm saying. And I think he's sorry. So it's really what it comes down to."

Oh, he's not done.

"I'm not going to be something that goes away. I hope to play him every year for the rest of my career and choke him out. There's not much else I can say about the subject. Nobody will understand it but him and me. That's all that needs to understand.

"It's just about him, it's just about Crabtree."

That's some WWE-level style trash talk. And as NFL fans, it just makes it things more juicy. Remember, the Seahawks and 49ers play twice in the regular season and could even clash again in the playoffs. Appointment television, folks.
