Antonio Brown flagged for 'sexually suggestive' touchdown celebration

The No Fun League has a clause in its voluminous rules that you just have to get familiar with.

The little-known but suddenly relevant resolution can be found on page 200 of the 292-page NFL bylaws, and it came into play after Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver scored his second touchdown of the game Monday night against the Washington Redskins.

First, Brown’s celebration — in all its prurient glory, ladies and gentlemen can be viewed in the video above.

And now, folks, here’s your NFL-administered dose of saltpeter:

The NFL clearly states that no
The NFL clearly states that no “sexually suggestive” dances will be tolerated. Wouldn’t want that (NFL bylaws).

So there you have it. Who knew “Key & Peele” hit so close to real life?

Ah, yes, the NFL — upholders of purity and chaste morals.

For what it’s worth, Brown’s 15-yard penalty barely hurt the Steelers; the Redskins offense has been pretty impotent Monday night.
