It seems as if the NFL is going to continue cracking down on touchdown celebrations.

Troy Vincent, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, tweeted Tuesday the NFL is going to develop a video that teaches players how to act when they get into the end zone. Last year, the league levied out 30 “demonstration penalties” –– up from 29 over the previous two seasons.

While players should be expected to follow some rules for touchdown celebrations –– it’s not necessary for Odell Beckham Jr. to propose to the kicking net –– the league’s intensive focus on this topic is overblown.

Given all of the problems facing the NFL, including new revelations of systemic painkiller abuse, it seems like there are much bigger problems to worry about than how Antonio Brown acts after he catches a touchdown pass.

Prior to the start of every MLB season, Budweiser releases team-branded beer cans. This spring is no different, and the Red Sox design is … OK.

In a tweet Wednesday, ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell posted a photo of the limited edition MLB cans.

The “Red Sox Nation” monicker jumped the shark last decade, when the team monetized it and started to offer “official members” the chance to become president of the make believe organization. Jerry Remy was elected the first president of “Red Sox Nation” in 2007.

While the Red Sox design is a tad passé, the Cubs’ can is awesome. Nothing beats being called the “World Series champions.”

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump took a shot at Colin Kaepernick, proclaiming his Twitter wrath is dissuading teams from signing the former 49ers quarterback.

Now former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is following suit.

In an article posted on Palin’s official website, writer Mary Kate Knorr calls Kaepernick’s Meals on Wheels donation a “political stunt.” Kaepernick recently gave $50,000 to the program, which delivers food for seniors and faces significant cuts under Trump’s proposed budget.

On Facebook, Palin implied Kaepernick’s political activism is the reason he’s still a free agent. “And he wonders why he can’t find a job,” she wrote as a teaser to the piece.

There seems to be a lot of truth to Palin’s comments. According to Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, 70 percent of NFL teams “genuinely hate” Kaepernick, because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem last year to protest racial discrimination and police brutality. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier this month the quarterback will stand for the “Star-Spangled Banner” this season.

While Kaepernick’s protest may be over, it’s clear he remains committed to social advocacy. Last week, he also donated $50,000 to help fly supplies to famine-ravaged Somalia.
