NFL into more fun, but still enforcing three-pump rule

The NFL announced Tuesday that it will relax restrictions on celebrations in an effort to provide players "more room to have fun after they make big plays."

Thank God. The league's draconian rules in this realm were bugging the bejeezus out of everybody and had become an unwelcome weekly talking point on social media last season. Credit is due for realizing that a continued strict police state in the corner of the sport was in service of no one besides your cranky 74-year-old grandfather. And that guy hates fun.

Bad news for Antonio Brown, however. The new policy doesn't mean players will now operate in a lawless society.

Look at Rog leaning into this a little! Anyway, here's another excuse to embed a Key & Peele sketch on this site. Don't tell Chappelle.
