Yesterday came news that NFL officials were warning players that the league would be cracking down on celebrations that included sack dances, spiking the ball, spinning the ball, military salutes or dancing.
However, per the NFL’s player policy guidelines, those celebrations would only be penalized if they were directed at an opponent. If that were the case, it would be a 15-yard penalty.
Broncos fans are used to seeing mile-high salutes and sack dances from Von Miller. The mile-high salute celebration is directed towards the fans, and therefore would not be subject to penalty. As long as Miller’s dances aren’t done in a way that officials deem as taunting an opponent, those would be allowed as well.
