When your team wins the Super bowl it’s natural to get excited, and understandable to get a little carried away when you see them in public. However, when approaching professional athletes you should probably be careful and treat them with the respect that any human being deserves. In fact you should probably treat them with even more respect as they can more than likely tear you apart with their bare hands if so inclined. Recently Richard Sherman got hopping mad over his new address being publlished which resulted in a number of idiotic fans camping out on his front lawn. Then on Sunday night Doug Baldwin went on a Twitter rant about a fan who got out of line: Look, I know some of you are excited to see us (Seahawks) out in public. But guess what, we are humans and people too. We desire respect… — Doug Baldwin Jr (@DougBaldwinJr) June 30, 2014 and privacy. So when we tell you we’d rather not take pictures or sign autographs so we can spend time with our family we hardly get to see… — Doug Baldwin Jr (@DougBaldwinJr) June 30, 2014 … please respect that. We are not zoo animals out in public for your entertainment. Disrespecting me/my family will be treated accordingly — Doug Baldwin Jr (@DougBaldwinJr) June 30, 2014 To clarify for some of you. I don’t mind if you ask, but if I say I’d rather not to spend time with my fam, don’t call me an asshole. Thanks — Doug Baldwin Jr (@DougBaldwinJr) June 30, 2014 Wow. Who in their right mind does that kind of thing, let alone directed at Angry Doug? I mean, you could probably get away with that kind of thing with Steven Hauschka, but Doug is about the last guy on the Seahawks roster I would want to test. Use your head, people. Unreal.
