Golden Tate promises taunting penalty won’t happen again

Seattle Seahawks v St Louis Rams Getty Images

Seahawks receiver Golden Tate scored the only two touchdowns in Seattle’s 14-9 win against the Rams, but after the game he was asked more about his taunting than his touchdowns.

On Tate’s 80-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter, he started waving at Rams safety Rodney McLeod around the 30-yard line, and the officials flagged him for taunting before he had even crossed the goal line. (Although in college football a taunting penalty during the play negates the touchdown, in the NFL it is enforced on the ensuing kickoff.)

Tate said on NFL Network after the game that he needs to “play a little smarter” and not draw penalties.

“That was immature of me,” Tate said. “I hurt my team. I’ve got to stay composed, play football, act like I’ve been there before. I’ve got to apologize to our special teams because I put them in an awkward situation. It won’t happen again. I’m going to move forward.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll greeted Tate on the sideline and gave him a scolding, and Tate said Carroll told him that if he wants to be considered one of the NFL’s great receivers, he needs to conduct himself like a professional.

“Be smart,” Tate said Carroll told him. “I’m a better player than that. If I want to be considered one of the better players, a Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, I’m going to have to act like I’ve been there before. That play right there hurt our team, could have given them momentum. It’s a learning moment for me so I’m going to move forward and not do it again.”

Tate was the only thing that worked for the Seahawks’ offense on Monday night: When passing to Tate, Russell Wilson went 5-for-7 for 93 yards, but on all of his other passes Wilson was 5-for-11 for 46 yards. So it’s a shame that Tate ended up drawing the wrong kind of attention to himself with the penalty, which detracted from some of the credit he got for his excellent game.

For players like Tate, and for Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who started celebrating 71 yards from the end zone on his touchdown Sunday, the player to emulate is Barry Sanders, who scored 109 touchdowns in his NFL career and never felt the need to showboat on any of them.

    The idiot almost stepped outta bounds.

  2. kperagine says: Oct 29, 2013 9:35 AM

    The whole time he was waving at the safety I was praying he was gonna get hit and fumble the ball out of the back of the endzone.

  3. joetoronto says: Oct 29, 2013 9:37 AM

    Don’t worry, “Golden”, you won’t ever be considered to be good.

  4. getyourownname says: Oct 29, 2013 9:38 AM

    Enforcing the penalty on the play, and from the spot of the foul (or from the goal line, if it occurs in the end zone), would make a lot more sense than on the ensuing kickoff since most kickers can seriously dilute the yardage disadvantage.

    Of course, being smart enough not to hurt your team would be even better.

    What a nice guy..

  6. tonyugoh says: Oct 29, 2013 9:41 AM

    I’m all for teaching young kids good sportsmanship, but these players are all big boys who are being compensated very handsomely to play a game, let then have some fun. And on the field, they’re constantly talking smack throughout the game anyways so I don’t see why it matters to suppress taunting.

  7. ctgiant says: Oct 29, 2013 9:42 AM

    Barry Sanders was a special player, no matter what team you root for, watching him move and groove, cut and duck, and bring it home, was a sight to embrace, smart guy, and no one could handle him, he was one great RB!

    CT GIANT

  8. packersarethebest says: Oct 29, 2013 9:42 AM

    Not surprised he did this at all. Classless franchises begets classless players from classless schools!

  9. ufanforreal says: Oct 29, 2013 9:44 AM

    He tries that sheet on the better teams an someone will put the hurt on him in a game.

  10. granadafan says: Oct 29, 2013 9:46 AM

    I was hoping he’d pull a Leon Lett and get the ball knocked out before the end zone or better yet, stepped out of bounds. Would have been karma. He’ll get what’s coming to him soon.

  11. 6250claimer says: Oct 29, 2013 9:47 AM

    Just watch some tape of Larry Fitz or Jerry Rice. They’ll show you what (not) to do.

  12. nonetruerthanblue says: Oct 29, 2013 9:49 AM

    Yes, he almost stepped out of bounds. Hilarious!

    No worries though. Taunt away, Golden…you’ll never be one of the greats anyway. Name should be changed to Wooden Tate.

  13. glac1 says: Oct 29, 2013 9:50 AM

    Isn’t he paid to do that?? It was nothing spectacular. Just do your job and grow up….

  14. Gordon says: Oct 29, 2013 9:51 AM

    This guy always looks like he’s chirping during the games. I would think you can do that if you’re an elite WR. He’s just average.

  15. m2karateman says: Oct 29, 2013 9:52 AM

    Golden Tate….to be considered and mentioned with a player like Calvin Johnson or Dez Bryant, you’re not gonna just have to play smarter, but you’ll have to play stronger, taller, faster, quicker and better.

    Yeah….I don’t think you’ll ever be mentioned with those guys in the same breath.

  16. denverwally says: Oct 29, 2013 9:52 AM

    a purely selfish play. He knew it was taunting when he was doing it. He chose to swap a 15 yard penalty against his team for 5 seconds of fun for himself.

    Immature and selfish. I’m hoping one of the linebackers on the team will have “explained it” to him after the game in the locker room.

  17. heyguru1969 says: Oct 29, 2013 9:54 AM

    And every DB in the League promises to take Tate’s head off if given the chance. Grow up, son.

  18. twonis says: Oct 29, 2013 9:57 AM

    The juxtaposition between how upstanding a citizen Russell Wilson is and how many other players on this team are just an embarrassment is astounding.

  19. pftstory says: Oct 29, 2013 9:57 AM

    No mention of an apology to his fellow NFL player?

    He apologized for putting his team/special teams in a bad spot. The flag is for being unsportsmanlike to the opposition. So did he apologize to McLeod? Or does he think his actions would have been OK if it didn’t draw a flag?

    ” If I want to be considered one of the better players, a Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, Demaryius Thomas, I’m going to have to act like I’ve been there before.”………….did Tate actually say this, LOL

  23. ma5terbla5t3r says: Oct 29, 2013 10:08 AM

    Tate rulez the WRs in the NFC. Just because he’s great doesn’t mean that he’s a lesser person because he taunted. He’s every reason the Seahawks should open up the passing game more. I bet the loser Packers wish they had him. Bank on it!

  24. carranofa says: Oct 29, 2013 10:09 AM

    ummm…. did he say Calvin Johnson????

  25. schmitty2 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:10 AM

    When asked about it after the game I’m surprised he didn’t use his “I don’t know what you’re talking about…I don’t know what you’re talking about” response.

  26. seatownballers says: Oct 29, 2013 10:10 AM

    I love how every fan is chiming in on how lucky we are. Should be 4-4. Almost lost. Overrated. One and done in the playoffs.
    We appreciate the hate, it motivates us. Meanwhile Seahawks need to go back to the drawing board, as we stunk In last nights win

  27. shuttaman1990 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:13 AM

    People who call it classless are probably the same type of individual that would’ve made that call to their school board when their kids get beat 91-0 in a highschool football game lol.

    Though, he almost ran out of bounds=stupid of him. Learn how to taunt properly!

  28. ma5terbla5t3r says: Oct 29, 2013 10:14 AM

    And by the way…Barry Sanders = OVERRATED . What a coward for retiring! Bank on it!

  29. whodeybacker says: Oct 29, 2013 10:14 AM

    WRs like Megatron, Fitz, and AJ Green are fun to watch. Classy pros. Diva WRs are not. You almost want to see someone tag them.

  31. bmoreravens1012013 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:17 AM

    Don’t let these fuddy duddys change you . I day if they don’t want you to taunt, then stop you from damn scoring!!

  32. kidsamoa260 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:20 AM

    Janoris Jenkins had that ish coming. I’m a Richard Sherman fan and if someone taunted him, he would have that coming, and everyone would give props to the receiver that burned him. Jenkins had issues with Steve Smith last week and who knows what he said last night.

  33. jbaxt says: Oct 29, 2013 10:25 AM

    I wish he would’ve went out at the 1, Rams d holds them to a field goal then they lose by 4.

    Still pretty funny he got shoved down for being the pos he is. If your taunting wouldn’t you want to make sure you wouldn’t be punked just as you scored. What a loser!

  34. steelerdynasty2010 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:29 AM

    want this to stop? blow the play dead when it happens, enforce the penalty 15 yards from the spot and assess a loss of down. no “result of the play” nonsense, and the offense will start with 2 & 25. if it’s after the play is over, treat it like an illegal forward pass. assess 15 from the original spot, loss of down, and go from there.

    That penalty last night cost them a whopping 2 yards. why wouldnt you do it? you’re definitely getting on sportscenter for it. no such thing as bad press.
    The kickoff was fielded at the 5, returned to the 32, but a holding penalty (which is always a possibility on KOR) took it back to the 22. I say it only cost them two yards because the kickoff spot was back 15 yards from normal, and still reached the 5 yard line. from the normal spot, that’s a touchback and the “O” takes over from -20.

  35. gohawks89 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:31 AM

    When long sacks wilson and does a stupid little dance… Why is that not taunting ??

  36. whatjusthapped says: Oct 29, 2013 10:34 AM

    I believe he pulled the same tactic when he was breaking into the doughnut shop.

    He was caught on the surveillance camera waiving a ball of frosted creams on his way out the door.

    I always wondered how a guy that dumb could have ever survived at ND?

  37. mrharper21 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:35 AM

    He reminds me of a weasel …

  38. 80sbroncofan says: Oct 29, 2013 10:36 AM

    He doesn’t score that much so let him have his moment.

  39. athwartships says: Oct 29, 2013 10:37 AM

    Hold the ball till the end zone, hand the ball to the official, get off the field.

    Simple, professional and less likely to pull a bone head move like step out of bounds, drop ball, get a flag….

    Ain’t nobody got time for that….

  40. bengalguy says: Oct 29, 2013 10:38 AM

    No worries Golden, you won’t ever have to worry about being considered great.

  41. Michelle says: Oct 29, 2013 10:38 AM

    Better player like Dez Bryant? No, Golden. You don’t want to be like him. He’s a jerk which overshadows any talent he may have. There are many other players to emulate. I was disappointed in the taunting last night, it was completely unnecessary. He was lucky as that was very close to going very, very wrong. But he apologized so it’s time to move on. He wasn’t the first player to make a dumb decision and won’t be the last. Every team has (or has had or will have) at least one player who makes stupid mistakes so be careful about pointing fingers.

  42. osiris33 says: Oct 29, 2013 10:43 AM

    Tate has great hands, great moves and is spectacular in RAC. if you don’t like watching him make big plays, don’t watch Seahawks games.

    When long sacks wilson and does a stupid little dance… Why is that not taunting ??

    It’s considered taunting when it’s done directly at a player or in his face (exactly what Tate did). Longs dance (also done by Thurmon from Seattle in the 2nd half) wasn’t in Wilsons face.It’s considered celebration…the same as Seattles DBs celebrate like they just won the SuperBowl after any routine play. Learn the rules dude

    Dude isn’t even in the top half of the league for slot receivers. And everyones complaint is with the taunting. Do you really think that has a place on the field? Would you be cool if that was Kaep (or any other 49er) that was doing that or are you just a homer?

    No place for that. There are lots of players in the league that should be watching Barry and the way he carried himself. That was class

  45. 3xapple says: Oct 29, 2013 11:16 AM

    Actually, the player that these diva WR’s should be emulating is Marvin Harrison. One of the greatest WR’s to ever play the game and every TD was a flip to the ref and a return to the sidelines. All class.

  46. granadafan says: Oct 29, 2013 11:16 AM

    There’s no way Tate should be mentioned in the same sentence as Calvin Johnson or Dez Bryant, let alone an above-average player like Demaryius Thomas.

  50. @HowdyDoobie says: Oct 29, 2013 11:44 AM

    The Rams must have been barking the entire game for him to act like that. It comes as no surprise a week after Steve Smith called out Janoris Jenkins. Rams need to win some ball games before they try to intimidate anyone.

  51. bmceh says: Oct 29, 2013 11:45 AM

    Golden, don’t worry, we’ll all forget about you when Percy returns. You’ll no longer hurt us with your stupid 1st down dances and/or idiot moves like that one last night.
    Btw, why don’t you try catching a few more punts inside the 5yd line too. Oh never mind, Percy will soon take that job from you as well.

  52. trollhammer20 says: Oct 29, 2013 11:49 AM

    Most of the people commenting in here have probably seen exactly two plays from Tate – the two in the Monday night games.

    He is a talented player, for sure. Can do great things with the ball after the catch – as a former RB, can be tough to bring down. Can also leap and make some spectacular grabs.

    But he’s always been immature. He sat out long stretches of his first season because he wasn’t running routes well enough to get on the field. He was out of shape his first season – was able to break into the clear on a couple of punt returns, but wasn’t able to finish.

    Last night you saw both the talent and the immaturity. Broke the big play, but wasn’t consistent enough to get open and make plays. And regarding that big play, that could have been the play that took the Rams out of the game, a play that sapped their emotional will. Instead, he goes off and taunts, which very likely had the opposite effect and got the Rams playing angrier, more motivated football.

    As a ‘Hawk fan who has watched Tate progress, I kind of wondered why the team went after Harvin. Tate isn’t as explosive, but he’s more durable and much the same kind of player, and I thought he had a chance to play his way into an extention this year. It’s harder to feel that way after last night. He didn’t step up, and when he did, he acted like a word that rhymes with brass pole and wound up energizing the other team.

    I’d say it’s time for him to grow up, but that time was really a couple of years ago. He has about eight games left to show he deserves a new contract, and if not, some other team can take their chances with him. Too much other talent in Seattle that the team can spend money on.

  53. footballchic777 says: Oct 29, 2013 12:02 PM

    he has a LONG way to go to be considered one of those 3 or many others, so maybe he should just try to concentrate on improving his game and attitude!

    Why do these so called “PROS” have to act like they have never scored a TD or made a tackle in their life ??

  56. elgranderojo79 says: Oct 29, 2013 12:15 PM

    I’ll call it how I see it…

    Golden Tate is a pretty good player who could be a top 25 to 30 wide receiver if he would focus more on playing the game and not let his emotions get the best of him. He won’t ever be in the class of CJ, D. Thomas or Dez because he isn’t the physical freak those guys are. He could try to be a Steve Smith type player though.

    The guy is fun to watch and his runs after catch are quite impressive for a guy his size, but he needs to be more consistent and avoid stupid penalties.

    The Rams are just as much of a bunch of dirtbags as Seattle’s DBs and Tate saw an opportunity to rub it in their faces. He didn’t take into consideration that he could be hurting his team and making himself look like a fool.

    I will say though he got his money’s worth on the taunt. If you are going to get 15 yards you might as well make it worth while.

  57. thebirdofprey2 says: Oct 29, 2013 12:15 PM

    Most of you fans who comment clearly don’t watch football. Tate last year averaged one of the top yards per catch. Because Seattle has been a 55% run first time, he was targeted far less than other big name receivers but still had 8 TD’s total.

    That taunting play was terrible and immature but that play he made on the ball was sick. The week before Patrick Peterson was in talks as the best cover CB in NFL, Tate ate his lunch for 77 yards catching 4 or 5 targets with Peterson shadowing him all game. That’s football talk.

  58. natelan69 says: Oct 29, 2013 12:21 PM

  60. sweetnlow44 says: Oct 29, 2013 12:27 PM

    To all the people here claiming that Tate isn’t any good, obviously haven’t watched him play much. He’s not the biggest or fastest receiver, but the guy is an outstanding playmaker. I get it, it’s the Seahawks, so for some reason people feel inclined to get defensive and spew your hate anytime they do anything to show any emotion whatsoever, but get a grip people. Other people talk trash with their mouths, he talked it with his hand. Big deal. Trash talk and taunting takes place on every play of every game in the NFL. It’s not like he was throwing multiple temper tantrums on the sideline or anything.

  61. 49ersforeverrrrrr says: Oct 29, 2013 12:31 PM

    Um.. I’m a diehard niners fan, but to me that was karma.

    If any of you idiots actually watched the game Janoris Jenkins was talking smack to golden and all their wide receivers ALL GAME, and then he got straight up burnt and got a taste of his own medicine.

    After reading all these comments i want to hand out tampons to all of you

    “Act like you’ve been there before.”

    I’ve seen that quote attributed to many people, including Vince Lombardi, but Barry Sanders is the one player that I most commonly associate it with. As a Packer fan, I don’t necessarily like the Lions (although they’ve never been enough of a threat to actually “hate”), but I always had tons of respect for Barry Sanders.

    Can you imagine a player that talented in today’s NFL, behaving with all of the class that he displayed week-in and week-out?

    Neither can I.

  63. lovethelions says: Oct 29, 2013 1:12 PM

    What a bunch of jealous losers! Seattle is 7-1 and you all have to find fault with any little thing. They’re 7-1….deal with it!

    Yes, I wish the Lions were 7-1, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to whine like a 49er or cry like a Chicago fan. They’re 7-1. Golden Tate is a great player. Seattle didn’t win by 30 points, but they won…and three weeks from now, that’s all anyone will remember.

    Just because your teams aren’t as good as Seattle doesn’t mean you have to spend you day whining. Move on and try to figure out what’s wrong with your own teams and admit that Seattle looks great this year.

    And Sherman is fun to watch, no matter what! LOL

  64. ratsfoiledagain says: Oct 29, 2013 1:13 PM

    Tate shouldn’t have done it. He knows it now. You can’t get sucked into that behavior.

    That being said, it seems Jenkins is talking some serious, and with Steve Smith, personal smack. (Who knows if he did the same with Tate)

    If this is Jenkins weekly MO, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone gives him an opportunistic cheap shot.

    Any fan who’s watched the game for awhile understands that divisions games can be tough. In most cases you can throw the point spreads out the window. You are playing a team that sees you twice a year and has databases of info and film on you. After the first five minutes of the game I knew Seattle was in for a fight. The Rams played with pride last night, fought hard and deserved to win. Their defense showed why many who are paid to prognosticate liked STL to make the playoffs this year and were a darkhorse SB pick by some. The Seahawks defense played with heart too, though. As did Russell Wilson. I think this is a good win for them. They need to refocus over the next few weeks leading up to the NO and SF games. Those teams are going to hit Wilson too, and they need to figure out how to protect him better.

  67. dodaditty says: Oct 29, 2013 1:30 PM

    Holy cow, people acting like he stomped on someone’s head on his way to the end zone. Gimme a break! People need to chill out. All of a sudden he is labeled as a dirty, classless player. Wow! So quick to judge….yet you don’t look at how much time he spends in the community.

  68. koolaidsgonebad says: Oct 29, 2013 3:09 PM

    GIVE ME A BREAK!!! he wants to be like Calvin AND Dez. Calvin is a class act, humble. Dez is a loud mouth and has a move and the X over his head to the crowd every time he scores. You are already acting like Dez. Raise the bar! How is that respectful. Barry Sanders…Best of All Time. (never had an OLind…Emmet)

  69. juliusanonymous says: Oct 29, 2013 3:20 PM

    I love love love the haters. Keep hatin! Seahawks will keep winning all the way to the Superbowl. Feels so good to be on top with all the riff raff crying and whining about how mean and classless your team is. LOVE IT.

    PS – Golden Tate apologized for the taunt in an interview immediately following the game. People slamming him are the ones who are classless. It’s one thing if he talked trash afterward or refused to apologize. But once he says he knows it was immature, you either let it go or prove that YOU are the one without class.

    For all of you predicting blowout you need to pump the brakes. Anything can happen on any given day. Think back to 2 weeks ago when the Broncos were supposed to beat the Jags by 28. I’m not saying the Rams will win this game but it might….just might be closer than you think.

    This is exactly why I don’t watch the NFL. For one the games are way to boring and then you get to watch morons like Tate act like and,,,,a moron and get this, the officials threw the flag long before the Moron crossed the end zone line but the NFL enforces this type of behavior on the kick off, so why is it that this type of behavior still happening? Enforce the penalty on the offender when it happens, take away the TD and this type of moronic musings won’t happen again.

    Keep in mind he also said he caught the ball against the Packers, so he’s obviously a liar.

    Lets go over this.
    1. Janoris Jenkins had you shut down all night, except for your 80 yd TD catch where he fell trying to back pedal.
    2. You were playing the St. Louis Rams, who aren’t exactly challengers in the NFC.
    3. You only have 3 TD’s thru 8 games in an offense in which your basically a #1 receiver with the play of Sidney Rice decent at best.
    And why of all people are you taunting McLeod? He had no involvement in the play and quite obv wasn’t going to catch you, so why, if your so confident in yourself, not turn around and wave the Jenkins, and you didn’t exactly beat him either.
    Totally classes and really no place for it in the game.

    Completely classless. Typical sea hawk.

    LOL! I love how all the people who are calling the Seahawks classless and stuff are all fans of teams the hawks have beaten. I’m sorry you’re booty tickled cuz you guys lost but GET OVER IT it’s one game. You do see me ragging on the Colts just cuz we lost to them. All the teams in this league are good and deserve respect. I don’t get why NW teams always get so much hate but oh well we thrive on that. We already got cheated out of one Super Bowl and that’s not gonna happen again.

    As for Golden yes it was immature but he apologized and let’s remember these guys get paid to play a game so really at the end of the day it really doesn’t matter who taunted and who didn’t. It’s not like Golden waving made the world stop turning or anything
