NFL: Chiefs Safety Penalized for Islamic Prayer


via TheSource

While both Chiefs coach Andy Reid and Abdullah himself admit his sliding to the ground after scoring the touchdown prior to bowing in prayer may not have been the best of ideas…an NFL spokesperson admitted that despite Abdullah going to the ground following the score, which is a frowned upon activity league-wide, he should not have been flagged with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty…

Also, in a more declarative statement, NFL Spokesman Michael Signora wrote this to USA Today Sports:

Husain Abdullah should not have been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct following his fourth quarter touchdown.

Luckily for the NFL, this acknowledgment came swiftly, before this developed in a larger-than-life news story.
