Seattle Seahawks Doug Baldwin was fined $11k for the Super Bowl Celebration of him pretending to be pooping, which is pictured above. Almost a month since the incident, Baldwin took to 710ESPN to apologize for the offense.
“I do regret the fact that it cost my team 15 yards, and to the fans, ultimately I apologize to anybody who I offended in any way,” Baldwin said. “It wasn’t about that. It was a competitive situation. So to all the 12s, all the fans, that’s not what it’s about. So I apologize to anyone if I offended you.”
Baldwin was a little childish for the celebration, but you can somewhat understand at the level of competition and tension. Was Baldwin wrong? Of course, but its the Super Bowl, someone was bound to do something embarrassing. At least he apologized to the fans who watched the game and is able to realize his mistake.
