Giants star Odell Beckham Jr gets penalty for ‘peeing on field,’ but why can’t he behave how he wants?

After the first touchdown he scored on Sunday, New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was given a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for simulating a dog urinating on the field by raising his leg.

But on a national day of protest for the National Football League why was Beckham penalized? Many people believe the players peed on Americans, the military and the flag by kneeling for the National Anthem, so why did Beckham get punished?

Perhaps raising his leg to simulate peeing was his form of protest. And who is the NFL to tell him what type of protest is appropriate? What about his right to free speech?

This is the slippery slope professional sports organizations are now on.

“I was in the end zone. I scored a touchdown,” he explained to the New York Daily News. “I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog.”

Sounds reasonable.

“I didn’t know if the rule book said you can’t hike your leg,” he added. “(The official) said I peed on somebody. So I was trying to find the imaginary ghost that I peed on, but I didn’t see him.

“But either way it goes, you play football. I wear red and white. I don’t wear black and white with stripes on it. I don’t make calls. I just play football,” he said.

When Beckham scored his second touchdown, there was no room for interpretation of what he meant by it.

Beckham’s protest came as other NFL players took the headlines on Sunday.

The entire Pittsburgh Steelers team stayed in the locker room for the National Anthem, except for one lone player. Veteran Alejandro Villanueva came out and stood for the anthem, to the chagrin of his black head coach.

The Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens angered many fans by protesting the anthem on foreign soil as they played in London’s Wembley Stadium.

It came after the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell spoke out against the president, and was joined by the president’s friend, New England Patriot’s owner Robert Kraft.
