Twitter reacts to Colts player’s hilarious unsportsmanlike penalty
It was not a good day for the Indianapolis Colts in Kansas City on Saturday, but Denico Autry ensured that he wouldn’t be forgotten.
Autry and the Colts managed to stop the Chiefs on a 4th down attempt and get off the field, giving themselves solid field position at their own 38. There was just one problem: Autry was hit with a 15-yard penalty for, essentially, walking up to the referee and gyrating.

On one hand it’s annoying the refs would flag someone for erotic dancing in a semi-snow playoff game.
On the other hand … maybe don’t do that when you’re losing 24-7 and just got great field position.

So the ref doesn’t appreciate hip girations?

You can't go all Morris Day right in front of the ref, dude.

That ref is a prude. People pay money to get dances like that

At least there weren’t too many pumps, though it would be hilarious if Autry gets fined for that.
