One of the NFL's best receivers has decided to stand up for one of his peers.
New York Jets' wide receiver Brandon Marshall believes it's time to end the NFL's "No Fun League" era, showing support for his recently criticized fellow pass-catcher Antonio Brown on Wednesday.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' superstar receiver has received multiple excessive celebration penalties this season for his entertaining end-zone dances, while other receivers such as Denver Broncos' wideout Emmanuel Sanders has had no such flag for similar celebrations.
The NFL's VP of Officiating Dean Blandino explained on Wednesday why Brown has been penalized for his self titled "Boomin" touchdown celebration, saying that it is "sexually suggestive," which is an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Blandino said that the NFL will send a video to each team "in the next week or so" detailing what players are allowed and not allowed to do with regard to celebrations.
However, don't expect AB to stop having fun on the football field, as his actions appear to be gaining support.
