Von Miller fined by NFL for pelvic thrusting celebration

Von Miller

Broncos linebacker Von Miller was fined $11,567 for a Key & Peele inspired pelvic thrusting sack celebration he’s been using this season.

The NFL levied the fine, citing unsportsmanlike conduct, in response to this celebration, which Miller has used without being penalized in both weeks two and three:

Miller’s celebration was apparently inspired by a Key & Peele sketch mocking NFL rules and excessive celebrations.

Miller’s punishment didn’t go unnoticed by the duo’s Jordan Peele, either.

Fitting, in a way, that the NFL came down on Miller for using a move from a comedy sketch that seems to poke fun at the NFL’s standards for what constitutes excessive celebration. Sadly for him, though, it looks like he’s going to need to find a new sack dance.
