Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley and the rest of Steeler Nation thought Baltimore Ravensrunning back Ray Rice was disrespectful after he draped a Terrible Towel over his head while walking off the field Sunday night following a 13-10 victory. Rice apologized Wednesday for it. "I actually asked a fan to trade like I've been trading jerseys with guys at the end of the game," Rice said, via the Baltimore Sun. "So, I didn't stomp it or do anything wrong. I actually walked out with it and I think I'm going to save it and put it in my basement to cherish the rivalry. It's not like you get out there and do derogatory stuff and spit, no none of that stuff. If you think about it, where I'm at in my career, you cherish these rivalries, cherish the moments. "I apologize to those who saw it as disrespectful. For me, I thought it was a pretty cool gesture, exchanging my gloves with a fan and walking out with it. Obviously, getting a victory there was cool ... To have something in your basement to know what the rivalry is all about is pretty cool. I've been exchanging jerseys with guys. My basement is getting pretty colorful down there with other teams' stuff." Rice said he understands why the Steelers and their fans are upset. The other side, they don't really like it, which I understand why like, 'Nobody plays with the Terrible Towel,' and I understand that," Rice said. "I respect this rivalry. I respect their organization. It's not like you're going to catch me on YouTube burning a Terrible Towel. I'll keep it in my basement and when I get to grow up and my time is done you get to look back on these moments: 'I got to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers.' This has actually been the first year I've started to collect other teams' stuff."
