If I get a pick, I’m going to prostrate before God in the end zone. Husain Abdullah, free safety for the Kansas City Chiefs and a practicing Muslim who was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct for excessive celebration for bowing in prayer after intercepting Tom Brady on Sunday. Funny, I don’t remember Tim Tebow getting penalized… (via beingblog)

Husain Abdullah received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for praying on Monday. [Yahoo]

This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year. 

it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.
