And I thought lap dances at Blush were expensive…
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was fined $12,000 for his post humping celebration during Sunday’s win over the Colts. $11,576 to be exact. Or, as AB called it, “a little fine.” Man, it must be awesome to be so rich you can afford to blow twelve grand making an idiot of yourself on national TV.
The NFL’s fine system factors in multiple violations and is calculated as a percentage of your game check. So the $12,000 number likely indicates he’s been fined before. Unlike earlier in the year when the league fined Cam Heyward for the terrible sin of honoring his late father who died of cancer during Cancer Awareness Month, I have no problem with this one. If Brown wants to waste his money foolishly, more power to him.
I know, I know, some people will say the “No Fun League” strikes again. Honestly, I hate post-touchdown celebrations. Even “normal” ones where a guy does a little dance or whatever and there’s no chance of injury strike annoy me. AB, however, has twice now done something crazy – first the back-flip into the end zone, then the Wile E. Coyote – and it would be pretty unforgivable if he were to injure himself one of of these. Mike Tomlin really needs to sack up and put a stop to it before the worst happens.
