The NFL has gone above and beyond throwing the yellow hanky in games this season. On top of that, they’ve been really heavy-handed on the fines for celebrations and cleats. The latest coming in a form of a $24,000 fine for New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham for removing his helmet after celebrating a go-ahead touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens last week.

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman has been targeted with NFL fines too. Norman was penalized and fined for pretending to shoot a bow and arrow this season. Norman told USA Today on Thursday that he’s planning an even more complex celebration featuring the product of some of the bigger NFL sponsors — beer.

“Since they sell beer on TV while kids are watching it, I’m thinking I might open a keg on the field, and I’m going to drink it on the field,” Norman said. “And I don’t see that being [against] the rule book.”

The Washington Post noted that Norman could be in the clear on a technicality because pretending to drink beer on the field isn’t against the rules. He probably wouldn’t be able to drink a real beer. Terrell Owens notably chomped on some popcorn as a celebration during one point of his career.
