Is the National Football League living up to its reputation as the “No Fun League”? According to the Associated Press, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was fined $7,500 for his touchdown celebration which took place during the Cowboys’ 37-20 victory over Miami this past Sunday. Of course as expected, Owens had plenty to say about the incident.
“It wasn’t even the fact I used the goal post as a prop,” Owens said. “They said I used the ball.” Besides being confused about what he can and cannot do in the end zone after scoring a touchdown, Owens is frustrated by the league’s policing of end-zone celebrations, telling AP, “It’s kind of hard to understand the rules. It’s like you can’t do nothing no more. … Dude, it’s like they’re trying to find any way to take fun out of the game. So I’m kind of limited right now as far as what I can do.”
It appears now that Owens will have to be more careful about his TD celebrations in the future. Owens said that he may consider an appeal, but he added, “it may not even be worth it.” What about your next TD celebration, TO? Maybe the sidelines? Owens replied, “I guess so. Next, they’re going to be saying you can’t go to the sidelines.”
