Doug Baldwin is finally ready to talk about his pooping celebration from Super Bowl XLIX.
The feisty Seahawks wide receiver pretended to defecate the football or on the football after scoring during their agonizing loss two weeks ago. However, he would not reveal his intention behind the decision or who it was directed at, only saying it was “between me and the guy it was directed at”.
Baldwin spoke on 720 ESPN’s The Barbershop show in Seattle on Monday night and decided to enlighten everyone on the bizarre celebration by saying it was directed at Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis:
I do regret the fact that it cost my team 15 yards, and to the fans, ultimately I apologize to anybody I offended in any way. It wasn’t about that. I just think 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
In that moment, it was just a reaction. So obviously if I could go back, I would take it back.
I spent a lot of time those two weeks prior to getting ready for that game just focused on my individual matchup with him and I put a lot into it, and in that moment, I guess you could say it was just kind of a built-up frustration I was letting out in that sequence, you know, between him and I.
Baldwin was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and fined $11,025 by the NFL for his actions, neither of which surprised anyone.
