No fine coming from the NFL.
The NFL confirmed today that Elliott won’t be fined for the celebration, which drew a lot of attention on social media — including from the Salvation Army, which appreciated Elliott’s gesture.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... lebration/
On the one hand, the NFL’s decision only reinforces the idea that the league’s fines and penalties for celebrations are wildly inconsistent: Some weeks, players who weren’t penalized on the field get fined for a celebration. Other weeks, players who were penalized don’t get fined.
On the other hand, this seems like a bit of common sense from the NFL: Elliott was just having fun and giving some attention to a cause the NFL supports. That ought to be embraced as a good thing, and not punished.
