The NFL continues to crack down on players for being excited after making a big play.
The league recently stated that players will begin receiving fines for doing the old bow-and-arrow celebration. The NFL deemed the gesture a “violent act.”
Really? So in the same context, is playing the air guitar really making music? Guess we don’t need to ask the commissioner how he feels about hunting. And who knows, maybe he’ll soon decide that Brian Robison’s hook set is too violent when he does his fishing-themed “sack dance.”

There are two players most known for pulling off this gesture, New Orleans wide receiver Brandin Cooks, and Washington cornerback Josh Norman. Cooks has already spoke out: “They’re not going to stop me,” claiming that his famous celebration has to do with a Bible verse he’s read that has stuck with him for a long time.
