Do you think Ezekiel Elliott should have been penalized for his touchdown celebration?
On Sunday night’s game, the Cowboys were penalized 15 yards because Elliott went inside the salvation army red kettle prop in the end zone after his touchdown. The league banned the use of props during celebrations back in 2006. Jerry Jones thinks he shouldn’t have been penalized because it’s not really considered a prop.
“First of all, I would take issue that it was a Zeke prop that violated the rule,” Jones said on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan. “There was no prop there for Zeke. We keep that red kettle back there all the time and those red kettles continue to remind through visibility of what the Salvation Army does, and doing the most good happens when you put a buck in that red kettle. So I question the interpretation by the officials as well. The league of course didn’t fine Zeke. Main thing is I would love to debate this. I would love to take this all the way to — William Jennings Bryan I’ll hire as an attorney. We’ll just take off and debate this and keep the Salvation Army at the front of the debate.”
Le’Veon Bell and Odell Beckham, Jr. expressed their feelings towards the NFL not giving him fine.
