EVERYONE loves a good touchdown celebration — except for the NFL, it seems.
The No Fun League was trending on social media again Saturday, and this time it was over a fine against four Dallas Cowboys.
Just a day before National Tight End Day, Dalton Schultz, Jake Ferguson, Sean McKeon and Peyton Hendershot got together to celebrate Hendershot’s fourth-quarter touchdown against the New York Giants on Thanksgiving.
Schultz, Ferguson and McKeon all jumped into the oversized Salvation Army cauldron that the Cowboys usually keep next to the field for the holidays.
Then they took turns jumping, and Hendershot played a game of whack-a-mole with the ball.
A bit of harmless fun, right?
Maybe. But a costly one, as it turns out.
All four were fined by the NFL for their celebration – Schultz $13,261, Ferguson $4,895, McKeon $4,994 and Hendershot $3,944.
Luckily for the players and their wallets, quarterback Dak Prescott had planned to cover any fines from that celebration – per Tom Pelissero.

Fans were less than impressed with the fines imposed by the league. One commented: “No Fun League strikes again. Boo humbug.”
Another said: “Not a fun league. There was nothing wrong with that celebration, if anything, the NFL should give that money to the Salvation Army, but that’s just my thought.”
While one said: “Hate the #cowboys but shoooooo No Fun League @NFL – you should want MORE of it on your screens, not less. It was very well done.”
And while he ultimately won’t be paying for it himself, Schultz took to Twitter simply to react to the fine Post: “Boo”
Prescott may walk away from their Week 12 matchup with lighter bags now, but at least he has their 28-20 win to cheer him up.
