New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham wanted to make a point to the NFL when he celebrated two touchdowns last week with goalpost dunks.

Graham isn’t happy that the celebration is now penalized by the league, and fined under league rules.

The NFL isn’t happy with Graham’s dunks, making a point of their own by fining Graham $30,000 for the celebration. The goalpost dunk won’t be tolerated.

“I have a lot of passion for the game,” Graham said earlier this week. “When I go out there on Sunday, it’s fun for me.”

The NFL has been called the “No Fun League” by some of its critics. Graham may share that sentiment, but only to a degree.

“For four years and however many touchdowns, I’ve always dunked it,” explained Graham last week. “And I just gotta stop doing that now.”

Don’t expect Graham to dunk it during the regular season. In fact, don’t expect Graham to dunk it during the course of a game ever again.
