Redskins’ Josh Norman Upset Over ‘Bow-And-Arrow’ Ban
Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is not happy with the NFL these days and it voicing his displeasure publicly.
The NFL will ban his bow-and-arrow celebration in the 2017 season. Yes, the “No Fun League” has struck again.
ESPN’s John Keim reported that on Sunday the league visited the Redskins’ camp and stated that any type of celebrations, on the field or on the sidelines, involving imaginary weaponry use will be flagged.
Norman took issue.
“You’re just picking on one person here,” Norman said, per the report.
“[Brandin] Cooks has been doing it for years, and now all of a sudden you want to quit and stop it? Why is that?”
Norman also pointed out the stadium celebrations by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (cannon shooting) and the New England Patriots (musket shooting) and asked; “If one of them is bad and looked at as dangerous, how come not all of them are looked at in that way?”
Norman was fined $10,000 for performing the celebration last season.
“It’s not like you’re shooting at somebody,” Norman continued.
“You’re shooting up. It gets the crowd excited, something to where everyone’s getting pumped up, so why take that away? What for?”
