The response to the Richard Sherman case illustrates a lot of what's wrong with the U.S.

Namely, an acceptance of a lack of discipline and bad conduct as something normal as opposed as something to be strived against. The fact of the matter, beyond his own behavior on the field in the realm of bad sportsmanship, is that certain features of society, that make society livable, are made possible by a certain level of conduct and self discipline, and if these aren't present, society itself descends into a sort of crude caricature of itself, where anything higher and pure can't exist.
