Odighizuwa, you can’t help but laugh at the appearing ridiculousness.

$12,154 for pretending to take a picture of teammate? That sounds like a really soak penalty for a harmless minute, particularly with everything else that is on the NFL’s plate nowadays. However, here’s the occurrence being referred to:

That is to say; Odighizuwa needed to know he would confront some train for that, right? The NFL disallows both choreographed and group festivities, which are liable to 15-yard punishments and resulting fines. Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr. were both fined for practically the same celebration earlier this season, perhaps this is some expand challenge from the Giants?

I wish as much as anybody that the league would slacken the rules on festivity and permit players to have more fun. It would make the game additionally engaging, which would unquestionably help given patterns in viewership. The NFL today would prohibit Deion Sanders’ trademark high-stride to the end zone, for example, which is a part of the reason I fell in love with the game when I was younger.

Festivities are great. They have a place in the game. However, the rules are the rules. Call it a copout if you need, yet players will be liable to discipline if they break said rules. Also, for this situation, a photo is worth around twelve grand.
