Miami Dolphin penalized for post-TD putting celebration

September 21, 2014

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline was penalized for a golf putt and restrained fist pump celebration after scoring in Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

After the NFL banned "dunks" this year, the number of celebration options for players in the "No Fun League" have been mostly eradicated. So big brownie points from the golf world go out to Hartline, a 27-year-old out of Ohio State who finished with three receptions for 25 yards. Though his arms look a bit stiff for a natural putting stroke. Then again, it might just be all the padding preventing him from showing off his real stroke.
