Husain Abdullah penalized by NFL official for Musl

After dealing with issues of domestic violence, child abuse and other off-field problems, the NFL finds itself in yet another delicate situation.

This time, the event took place on the field of play during the Kansas City Chiefs' 41-14 rout of the New England Patriots on Monday night.

In the fourth quarter, Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah intercepted a pass from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and returned it for a touchdown.

The No Fun League lived up to its name and officials penalized Abdullah for unsportsmanlike conduct for breaking Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1 (d), which reads:

<span style="font-size: 14pt"><span style="font-weight: bold">"Prolonged or excessive celebrations or demonstrations by an individual player. Players are prohibited from engaging in any celebrations or demonstrations while on the ground. A celebration or demonstration shall be deemed excessive or prolonged if a player continues to celebrate or demonstrate after a warning from an official."
</span></span>
Abdullah, a Muslim who sat out an entire season to make his pilgrimage to Mecca, went to his knees to perform a prayer.

If this were Tebow (if he could hack it in the league), Facebook would be lit up. Freedom of religion applies to all. If it's against the rules, then it's a justified flag. IMO, score and get back to work. Its a football field, not a dance club or religious venue.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

So, is that the "vogue" thingy to do ? Pray to someone, anyone, for giving you the strngth to score a touchdown ? Should probably save the prayers for a 10 yo child in a hospital bed, fighting some horrible disease ?

I was bothered much more by the "Futbol Americano" decal on the field.

Their "futbol" is known as soccer here, but heaven forbid anyone assimilate.
