Beckham is NOT going to like this. Will this send a message to other players that want to pull this kind of stunt?
Last week Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. pretended to pee like a dog in the end zone after scoring the first points against the Eagles.
The league was apparently not impressed.
He has hinted that his little act was a hit-back at President Trump’s S.O.B. comments in Alabama.
It’s going to cost Beckham a few grand for his little ‘protest’.
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr has been fined $12,154 by the NFL for his dog-like touchdown celebration last Sunday.
The talented receiver had just scored the first points of the day against the Eagles on Sunday, making a good fourth-quarter catch in the end zone, when he got down on all fours, lifted his leg, and pretended to pee.
‘I was in the end zone. I scored a touchdown,’ Beckham told the New York Daily News. ‘I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog.’
Really, he’s a dog so he acted like a dog?
Good thing he didn’t start chewing on a shoe — or worse, humping someone’s leg.
Beckham isn’t the only one injecting politics into sports.
LeBron was doing the same with comparable style and grace:
Beckham earlier this week hinted that his colorful touchdown celebration was a jibe at President Donald Trump after he called any player who failed to stand for the national anthem a ‘son of a b***h’…
…’I didn’t know if the rule book said you can’t hike your leg,’ he told the Daily News.
‘(The official) said I peed on somebody. So I was trying to find the imaginary ghost that I peed on, but I didn’t see him.

It just makes one wonder though — if the league is so concerned about Odell Beckham’s ‘dog peeing’ routine and fining him for it, why are they condoning the ‘Take A Knee’ during the anthem?
