Antonio Brown gives Roger Goodell a thumbs-up for celebrations

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has earned himself some good will with the players after the league changed its celebration rules.

Goodell and Steelers receiver Antonio Brown appeared together in a brief video that Brown posted on social media, and Brown made clear that he loves the league’s decision to ease up on celebration penalties.

“With the best commissioner in the game. We’re allowed to celebrate now,” Brown said.

“Let’s do it,” Goodell replied.

Brown has picked up multiple fines and penalties for celebrations, leading the Steelers to tell him last year to knock it off. Now the NFL is telling him to keep it up. Which has Goodell in Brown’s good graces.

    I’m pretty sure Harrison is going to want to have a word with you

    I am also giving Goodell one finger up. Guess which one?

    Uh oh. He gave the commissioner some love. Here comes the arrows!

    “With the best commissioner in the game…” Brown said.

    *******************************************************************************

    Moments later, James Harrison issued a press conference to announce his retirement from the NFL and permanent estrangement from Antonio Brown.

    Good ol’ Goodell. The Commish only loosened the leash on celebrations due to sagging tv ratings.

    “With the best commissioner in the game. We’re allowed to celebrate now”

    As apposed to the 14 other commissioners of the NFL.

    It’s amazing how much in word and deed Goodell resembles the warden from Shawshank.

    He’s excited he gets to dance and prance in front of a mostly male audience.

    I think Brown might still be on a pump count. He should double check what the number is.

    Is this guy serious?

    Does this mean that Brown can wear his wonderful shoe “dedications?” I mean … that’s his thing right?

    To be fair, he’s the only commissioner in the game, so… I guess he’s also the worst?

    Why weren’t we told earlier that running head-on into one or two 300lb guys doing the same in order to flatten you could lead to head injuries? I mean, I often got up a little woozy or worse despite the helmet, and we all know a knock to the head can be dangerous, even to cyclists wearing helmets… But still, no one said it applied to football, so give me more millions!

    Well, after all -the celebration and the “look at me” is the most important thing. Not winning, as witnessed by celebrations by players that get a sack or a catch when they are 20 down.

  15. bannedfromchoirpractice says: Jun 20, 2017 10:22 AM

    I wish Florio were the commissioner.

    Don’t confuse Nhpats with the simple stuff as he is easily confused.

    AB loves life in a playful way so ease up. He works hard at his craft and seems to be a great dad….so lighten up troll’s.

    I expected to see the picture where he was hugging the goal post.

    Cue the conservative snowflake responses, “Why can’t the players hand the ball off to the ref like old Barry Sanders?” or

    “The fans are screaming and high fiving and teammates are jumping for joy, but how dare that player show emotion! He’s just typical of the look-at-me millennial players of today’s generation! Back in my day……”

    I 100% believe that this is sarcasm.

    what? are you serious? all m0n|<eis love to do tricks and taking the tricks away from them is like taking the bread and butter away from humankind.

    I grew up with the perfect season Dolphins. When they scored a TD, the only “celebration” was a handshake from a fellow teammate. Nobody did goofy dances or other silly gyrations……but we fans thoroughly enjoyed the players’ performance, and appreciated their professionalism. I think I speak for a lot of Dolfans who recall the good old days when we did not have to endure the nonsense, and just enjoyed the play.

    Sure…..but that was when Shula would water the field to slow down a faster team…….
