Wife of Bills kicker suggests castrating Richard Sherman

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had himself a doozy of a Monday night.

First, he was penalized for hitting Bills kicker Dan Carpenter ...

... and then he leveled Walt Powell on the last play of the game, but wasn't given a flag (explanation here).

After the game, Sherman defended his hit on Carpenter by telling ESPN's Lisa Salters, "he should've not kicked it." When Salters told him the NFL admitted it should've been a harsher penalty, Sherman said, "That don't mean nothing to me." He later said some Bills players acted like "the opposite of competitors."

So about the time of Sherman's on-field interview, Kaela Carpenter, the wife of Bills kicker Dan, tweeted this:

That would be an elastrator. I'll let Wikipedia take it from here: "Elastration (a portmanteau of "elastic" and "castration") is a bloodless method of male castration and docking commonly used for livestock. Elastration is simply banding the body part (scrotum or tail) until it drops off. This method is favored for its simplicity, low cost, and minimal training requirements."

Fun times.

Update: Sherman responded.
