“Husain Abdullah was penalized for praying?”

Down on one knee + Jesus = Tebowing
Down on two knees + Allah = unsportsman-like conduct

One shouldn’t blow this out of proportion, it is possible that the penalty against Husain Abdullah, safety for the Kansas City Chiefs, was just a bad call by the team of referees. Former referee and NFL rules media expert Mike Pereira pointed out last year that this isn’t what the rule against excessive celebration is for (see article linked above.) Most excessive celebration calls are ridiculous and arbitrary anyway. I get that there needs to be a rule against taunting and wasting too much time, but apart from that.. 

The NFL needs to adress this asap. As usual, don’t read the comments, as they are predictably islamophobic.
