Martellus Bennett Calls the NFL Celebration Training Video What it Is: A Joke

The NFL announced that it would be creating a training video so players know the proper way to celebrate. You read that right.

The National Football League, which has institutionalized righteous self-aggrandizement, had a bright idea on Wednesday. As executive vice president of NFL football operations Troy Vince said on Twitter, the league is "developing an educational training video for players to show clear examples of appropriate and inappropriate celebrations."

Obviously, this is a response to all those hooligans who ruined their flawless product with dancing and celebrating and, really, ugh, spontaneous happiness. The National Football League does not suffer indiscriminate happiness on just anyone's terms. In the National Football League, the league office will tell you how to celebrate. No coloring outside the lines.

Watch the videos. Learn something. Be the robot the NFL wants you to be.

This is, of course, farcical. Want to know how the players feel about the National Football League spending its time and resources to coordinate fun instead of encouraging conversations about head trauma or social issues?

How the hell do you think they feel? Let Martellus Bennett tell you:

And now for the proof that Bennett was right and won this debate: Skip Bayless is discrediting him, not the argument. When you've lost Skip, you've won the battle.
