Antonio Brown is the best wide receiver in football right now, sorry Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr and A.J Green. It's the truth.
However, it seems like the National Football League has a problem with the Steelers superstar and the celebrations he busts out.
Brown, who was punished by the league for twerking in week one of the 2016 regular season, had said that he would try to be smarter with his celebrating. It has not worked.

After a hauling in a near 40-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger, Brown decided to ditch the twerk and went for the hip thrust. That also drew a penalty flag.
That flag completely disregarded the well-established rule that two pumps is fine but three is where the line is crossed. This was first brought up by Key & Peele‘s Hingle McCringleberry skit.
However, some are pointing out that this was actually two-and-a-half pumps. And that the ref only threw the flag when he saw that half thrust.
If so, then Brown needs to do better. Or the league could revisit the Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty. That would also be good.
