Antonio Brown Flagged For Excessive Celebration Despite Abiding By The ‘Two-Pump Rule’

Ryan Mayer

The NFL’s old moniker of being the “No Fun League” has started to pop up more this season as the league has instituted a league-wide crackdown on touchdown celebrations. Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is no stranger to flags for over-the-top celebrations. He was flagged and fined in Week 1 for twerking, though his response was perfect.

Last night during the team’s game against the Chiefs, Brown got flagged once more for excessive celebration after burning the Chiefs secondary for a long touchdown. Here’s the play.

The flag led to immediate jokes on Twitter referring to the old Key and Peele sketch about Hingle McCringleberry’s excessive celebration and the “two-pump rule”.

In case you’ve never seen the sketch, here it is for reference.

In today’s NFL, even the “two-pump rule” doesn’t keep you safe from drawing a penalty apparently.

    It’s not a matter of “no fun league.” He needs to quit acting like a j@ck @sz that suffers from lack of attention. And when is “The Fan” going to accept that this penalty is a stupid one that will likely cost them points soon with the penalty. I’ve given up on their morning show. They just don’t get it. Giving up 15 yards because of me me me, is not acceptable.
