    NFL flagged KC Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah for praying in the end zone[W:80]

    Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah's flag for unsportsmanlike conduct sparks controversy - NY Daily News


    Man the NFL can't buy a break.

    In all seriousness, this is total BS. While I am not a Muslim in faith, there was no justification for the ref penalizing this guy for practicing his religious right when other Christian athletes do it all the time.

    He was penalized for sliding on his knees after scoring, not for the actual praying. It says so right in the article.

    It would be so awesome if the players went back to the era where when you made a big play it was part of the game and something you understood you were EXPECTED to do. PAID to do. Got a sack? Awesome...thats why you got paid 2 million...now where were you on the other 48 plays asshole?

    In the NFL's defense, they've said it was wrong to give the penalty.

    the article is passing along what he thought he was penalized for. The NFL has since explained the flag was for the prayer, and it was an officiating mistake.

    But if it was a accurate call, why is the NFL calling it a bad call?

    NFL: Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah should not have been penalized

    Here is my thing. There are plenty of Christian players who go down to their knees and thank God (which is good) without getting penalize. This guy does the same thing and gets hit.

    When I played and someone beat you, you tipped your hat. The smack talking and celebrations were considered out of line.

    Act like you have been there.

    Let me know when we see the consistent outrage from the Tebow taliborngains that the NFL is anti-prayer.

    Oh, wait, its not their religion, so they can just be hypocrites.
