RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Count Richard Sherman among the NFL players who are not fans of having to play on Thursday nights.

Sherman expressed his displeasure with the weeknight games on Tuesday, calling them an “absolute poopfest.”

“Congratulations NFL you did it again, but they’ve been doing it all season. We’re the last ones to get the middle finger,” Sherman said.

Sherman has been vocal in his belief that scheduling Thursday night games clashes with the NFL’s call for improved player safety.

“It’s hypocritical, as I’ve stated before. They make this huge stance about player safety and then they put the players in tremendous danger,” he said.

Sherman estimated that he would be probably around 50 or 60 percent of normal for Thursday’s game against the Rams, with the Seahawks having played on the road at Green Bay on Sunday.
