Beckham’s Touchdown Celebration Irks John Mara

Beckham’s “dog-urinating” celebration has caught the ire of the Giants co-owner.

Odell Beckham Jr has been making headlines for his “dog-urinating” celebration during the New York Giants 27-24 loss to the Eagles. The superstar receiver struck the ire of the one person that he shouldn’t have: Giants co-owner John Mara.

Mara has made his intentions be known that he was disappointed in Beckham’s touchdown celebration. That disappointment is catalyst for the in-house punishment that Beckham will likely be receiving.

“I do not want to get into a discussion about this, but I will say that I am very unhappy with Odell’s behavior on Sunday and we intend to deal with it internally,” Mara told New York Post Mike Vaccaro of The New York Post through an email.

Beckham’s nine reception, 79 yard and two touchdown performance is relatively forgotten. After the game on Sunday, Beckham defended his celebration when asked by the media about the meaning behind it.

“I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog,”said Beckham.

It did not end there, as Beckham would finally give his answer through social media, when asked by CNN Trend and Franchise editor AJ Willingham if had to do with Trump’s “S.O.B.,” remark.

Beckham is a lightning rod in this league for sure, as he wears his emotions on his sleeve every time he takes the field. However, his passion has shown to hinder the Giants at points, especially on the first touchdown celebration on Sunday, which costed the Giants 15-yards on the ensuing kickoff. It started last week with rookie tight end Evan Engram’s unsportsmanlike penalty in the endzone against the Detroit Lions. Now, we’re at it again with Beckham.

New York head coach Ben McAdoo did not address how Beckham would be disciplined. Rather, McAdoo expressed his distaste of having a 15-yard penalty on a kickoff.

“We should be talking about the way he played,” said McAdoo. “I’d rather be talking about that than the celebration penalty. It’s real simple, I don’t want to kick off from the 20-yard line. It doesn’t help our team.”

It is unknown at the time of this writing what form of discipline Beckham will be facing. A fine or a limited snap count could be possibilities. From now on, if the Giants want to win, Beckham might have to keep his passion in check.
