The touchdown celebration is becoming an issue in the NFL, especially with regards to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown told ESPN that he has been fined again for his touchdown celebration dance against the Kansas City Chiefs this past weekend.

Brown was fined $9,115 for twerking in the opener, and a second offense in taunting would be $12,154. Each of those celebrations led to a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

The NFL has a rule against "sexually suggestive" behavior on the field, but Steelers coach Mike Tomlin publicly asked the league to clarify what is and is not acceptable.

The NFL is sending a video to teams that explains the issue.

"That's what happens when you give someone (commissioner Roger Goodell) total power," guard Ramon Foster said. "There are other guys who have done worse. AB's just having fun. Don't make it the 'No Fun League.'"
