When it comes to NFL players just “not getting it” there seems to be no level of stupid too low to surprise anymore.
Take Doug Baldwin’s “PoopDown” in the Super Bowl.
Okay, I get it. Haha. Poop. Very funny.
But on the Super Bowl stage? Really? You have worked your whole life to score a TD in a Super Bowl and THIS… this is what you think would be sweet?
Worst of all, it’s not even original.
That’s right. Adam Corolla had this one a while back. Here’s proof…
NBC decided not to show the act, and cut away abruptly. I think that was a mistake. The broadcast client (I purposely don’t say “partner” because it’s not really a partnership. NBC and the other networks, are PAYING a massive sum to broadcast the NFL’s product) should have no obligation to run interference for either the league or the players’ absurdities.
It was even more egregious that NBC and Al Michaels made virtually no mention of the penalty end of this act. In a perfect world, NBC would have shown a replay of Doug Baldwin’s me-first vulgar idiocy, and Michaels and Collinsworth would have eviscerated Baldwin on the air.
Instead, bad actors and stupid football got flushed down the NFL-sanitized memory hole.
