Bills’ Spencer Brown has funny reaction to beer celebration fine
Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Spencer Brown is making light of the fine he got for celebrating with a fan’s beer on Sunday.
Brown grabbed a fan’s beer and dumped it on both wide receiver Stefon Diggs and himself after Diggs scored a touchdown. Brown very much embraced the moment, which spread throughout social media.
“You can’t put a price tag on that. It was just a beer. I can always get more beer.”@news4buffalo photog @Hope_Winter and I talked with Bills fan Rich Donohue who handed his beer to @BuffaloBills Spencer Brown 😎

As fun as it was, the NFL unsurprisingly frowned on this. Brown sent a funny tweet on Friday confirming that he had been fined for his celebration.

The fine was for $5,000, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, with the league considering the beer to be a prop.
Bills fans are certainly not going to care about Brown getting fined. They’ll say it was totally worth it. In fact, he had already endeared himself to them before he ever played a game, so this will only further that.
