EXCLUSIVE

Check yourself the next time your Lyft driver tries to bait you into talking smack about Richard Sherman -- 'cause the guy might actually be Richard Sherman!

The Seattle Seahawks superstar went undercover as a Lyft driver -- IN SEATTLE -- to see how unsuspecting commuters felt about him. The result is pretty damn hilarious. 

Sherman was dropping subtle hints about his true identity along the way ... including this gem:

"I just came back from Hawaii actually with some of my friends. I try to make sure I go every year. There's like 50 of us. We even see some guys we really don't like so much from work but that's part of the job."

You gotta watch the clip -- the look on the passengers' faces when he reveals who he is ... priceless!

Richard Sherman Accused of Hoverboard Stiffery ... Pay Up Or Else!

3/9/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

030816-richard-sherman-tmz-02A hoverboard company has declared war on Richard Sherman -- claiming the NFL star ordered 54 custom Seahawks colored scooters ... only to screw them over when it came time to pay up.

The company behind the allegations is Sidekick Group Corp. -- which makes the SideKick Wheels 2-wheeled scooter. 

Sidekick claims Sherman met with company honchos back in 2015 -- and agreed to buy 54 custom boards at a significantly discounted rate provided Sherman post about the board on social media.  

The company says the boards usually go for $1,295 a pop ... but they chopped the price all the way down to $500 for Sherman.   

Problem is ... Sidekick says Sherman never posted anything online and most importantly never sent a check. So now the company says it's stuck with 54 Seahawks boards they don't know what to do with.  

They fired off a letter to Sherman last month demanding payment -- or else they would take legal action. So far, we're told it's been radio silence from Sherman's camp. 

We reached out to Sherman for comment -- so far, no word back.

Kam Chancellor 911 Call 'They're Bad News' 'Pounding On Our Doors'

3/3/2016 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The gym staffer who called 911 on Kam Chancellor said the Seahawks player was "bad news" -- and had been "pounding" on the doors ... even though the gym was closed.  

TMZ Sports obtained the 911 call ... in which the woman at the Redmond Athletic Club in Washington describes 5 people (3 black and 2 white) who came to the gym unannounced.

The woman said she explained that the gym was closed, but the group refused to go -- "They're trying to get in and we've told them multiple times they need to leave."

At one point, the woman says, "I don't know if they're homeless kids ... I know there used to be a lot of heroin addicts around here."

Eventually, cops came to the scene and spoke with Chancellor -- who explained his side of the story. No arrests were made and cops say Kam was a "super nice guy."

The owner of the gym says race was never a factor -- and that his staffers did what they were instructed to do in a situation involving unknown people trying to enter the gym.  

Kam Chancellor Gym Owner Says Race Not an Issue In Police Incident

Exclusive Details

0303-kam-chancellor-GETTY-01The owner of the Washington gym Kam Chancellor was scouting out Wednesday night tells TMZ Sports he has reached out to the Seahawks star to explain why his employees called police on him ... and says he still wants to make a deal.

If you haven't heard ... Chancellor says he was scouting the Redmond Athletic Club last night because he was interested in buying the place -- and went to the building with friends to check it out. 

Problem was ... the gym was not open and staffers inside called police because they were concerned. 

Kam tweeted, "They told the cops I was trying to rob the place because I was looking into the glass asking for help."

Many people believe the call to cops may have been racially motivated because Kam is black. 

But we spoke with the owner of the gym, Ryan Neal, who tells us, "We have reviewed the situation and can assure you that race was not an issue here."

Neal says the gym has recently had attemped break-ins and the staff was told to call cops if it appeared anyone was trying to gain access to the gym while it was closed.

Neal says he has reached out to Chancellor -- and says he would love to talk business if Kam is still interested in buying the gym. 

Stay tuned ...

He's referring to the Jan. 10 game against the Vikings -- temperature at kickoff was -6 with a windchill of -25.

EXCLUSIVE

0122-marshawn-lynch-getty-01Marshawn Lynch's mother tells TMZ Sports ... she believes her son still has gas left in the tank and will NOT retire ... not yet at least. 

We asked Delisa Lynch about the comments Seahawks G.M. John Schneider said about her son -- that he was under the impression Lynch would retire before next season. 

But Delisa -- aka Momma Lynch -- says, "I really believe we haven't seen the last of Beast Mode!!!"

She added, "My younger son [Davonte] will be coming out next year. I told [Marshawn] to wait for his brother."

FYI -- Davonte is a running back at New Mexico Highlands University ... and Momma Lynch's goal is to have BOTH of her sons playing in the NFL at the same time! 

Fingers crossed!

EXCLUSIVE

Marshawn Lynch went from Beast Mode to Party Mode after the Seahawks got bounced from the playoffs ... hitting up a Seattle nightclub late Sunday night and TMZ Sports has the video.

Multiple witnesses at the club tell us Lynch rolled in to Stage in Seattle after 1 AM wearing a big trapper hat and keeping a low profile in an effort to go incognito.

Problem for Lynch is he's super famous ... and everybody noticed.

One witness told us, "He was dancing through the crowd being followed by thirsty girls."

It's an interesting statement to party after the heartbreaking loss ... especially with reports that Lynch won't return to the Seahawks next year.

Some witnesses tell us Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett was part of Lynch's crew -- though we can't confirm that.

Marshawn Lynch Gives $500 to McDonald's Worker ... 'I Wanna Help You'

EXCLUSIVE

1111-marshawn-lynch-mcdonalds-2_WMMarshawn Lynch might be the BEST MCDONALD'S CUSTOMER EVER ... 'cause he gave $500 to a Mickey D's staffer last week ... because he wanted to help the kid out. 

It all went down at McDonald's in Dallas last Sunday after the Seahawks beat the Cowboys -- when Beast Mode walked into the joint and struck up a conversation with 17-year-old Terrance Downs, who was mopping at the time. 

"I told him I liked his shoes -- navy blue Buscemis -- and how I wanted to buy a pair and we all started talking," Downs tells TMZ Sports

Lynch asked him about school and what he wanted to do in life, and Downs told him he's into fashion and wants to own a boutique one day. 

That's when Lynch whipped out $500 and handed it over ... telling Downs, "If you're serious about getting those shoes, here's some money to help you get 'em. My job is to continue to see you grow."

A rep for the owner of the McDonald's confirmed the story -- adding, "Marshawn left a huge positive impact on Terrance." 

As for Downs, he tells us he went out and bought the shoes ... and says he's even more motivated to become successful so, "I can do the same thing for someone else one day."

Russell Wilson My Cleats Can Thump Cancer ... Just Like They Thumped Kaepernick

11/3/2015 9:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1103-russell-wilson-ebay-01Russell Wilson continues to prove he's the greatest guy in the world ... auctioning off his game worn cleats from the Seahawks' victory over the 49ers last month to aid in the fight against children's cancer.

Wilson announced the donation on Twitter moments ago ... with a message that read, "Had a tough time letting go of these...auctioning my game worn cleats from our win over SF to fight childhood cancer."

The Seahawks beat the 49ers 20-3 on October 22nd ... Russell made sure to scribble in the date and score on the shoes. 

The cleats are already ON FIRE on eBay ... fetching a price of nearly $900 with seven days of bidding still left to go, which tells you they're going to net a big sum when all is said and done.

And you thought Colin Kaepernick wouldn't be vaguely involved in anything successful this year ...

Seattle Seahawks Crash 'They Were Revving Engines, Racing' ... Witness Says

10/21/2015 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

A witness who was at the Seahawks facility during Tuesday's crash says Fred Jackson was revving his engine at another driver before both cars rocketed down a 1 mile stretch ... leaving no doubt they were drag racing. 

We spoke with Jason Hellervik -- an autograph seeker who was waiting for players at the facility when he saw Fred's black Corvette pull up to a stop sign next to a red Dodge Charger. 

"They were both stopped at the same time, they both revved their engines and they both left without stopping," says Jason, who was with his buddies at the time ... "We were like what are these idiots doing?"

Hellervik says he was with 6 other guys at the time of the crash -- who all witnessed the apparent drag racing scene -- and none of them have been contacted by police. He says if contacted, he would definitely cooperate with investigators. 

For his part, Jackson says he was not racing anyone. 

Marshawn Lynch On Scene After Drag Race Teammate Fred Jackson Crashes

EXCLUSIVE

1020-fred-jackson-marshawn-lynch-crash-GALLERY-LAUNCH_TMZSPORTS-01Seattle Seahawks running back Fred Jackson wrecked his sports car while drag racing with someone after a team practice ... according to witnesses.

The accident went down near the team's practice facility in Renton, WA. Witnesses tell us Jackson appeared to be racing with someone in a red Dodge Charger ... down a straightaway on a public street. We're told Fred was in a black Corvette, and somehow lost control .. smashing into a large planter box and then a stop sign. 

As you can see in our pics and video ... Jackson's teammates Marshawn Lynch (driving a white Jaguar F-Type convertible) and Richard Sherman were some of the first people on the scene. You can see them trying to help Jackson open the doors on his 'Vette after the accident. 

Police responded, but Seahawks staffers also showed up and took Jackson back to the team facility. It's unclear if Jackson suffered any injuries. We also don't know who was driving the Charger, but in our video it's parked a short distance away from the wreck.

Renton cops say at this point, there is no evidence indicating a drag race. We're told the responding officer gave team personnel permission to take Jackson and evaluate him.

1015-derrick-coleman-twitter-02Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman was arrested for hit and run in Washington early Thursday morning ... after cops say he was involved in a crash that may have injured another driver. 

According to the police report, Coleman was driving his truck -- which collided with a Honda Civic around 6PM. 

In a photo of the crash scene obtained by Q13Fox.com, you can see Coleman's car was knocked on its side and the Honda was flipped completely upside down. It's a miracle no one was killed.

Coleman reportedly walked away from the crash scene -- despite the fact the other driver appeared to be suffering from injuries ... possibly a broken collarbone. 

Cops found the 24-year-old near the crash scene and arrested him without incident. A DUI test was administered ... so far, the results haven't been made public. 

He was booked into King County Jail where he's being held without bail until he appears in court for a bail hearing.

BTW -- Coleman is famous for being the first legally deaf offensive player in the NFL -- and has said he uses hearing aids and reads Russell Wilson's lips to understand the plays. 

Coleman has been suspended indefinitely by the Seahawks.
