If you ever wonder why people call the NFL the “No Fun League” these days, then look at what happened to Seattle Seahawks star DK Metcalf.

The league fined Metcalf after he celebrated scoring a touchdown by “borrowing” an in-place television camera. Metcalf’s actions cost him $6,131, which the National Football League docked him for the actions.

Thanks to Samuel Gold, who is The Athletic Seattle Film Analyst, we can take a look at what happened on Dec. 13. You make the call.

From the looks of it, Metcalf “took over” the camera for just a few seconds after climbing into the empty stands.

This isn’t the first time a player has done this during an NFL game. Nor is it the first time that the league fined a player for such actions. Take a look at what Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill did in a game, too.

Count Russell Wilson As a Big Fan of DK Metcalf

The Seahawks’ combination of quarterback Russell Wilson and DK Metcalf has proven to be virtually unstoppable this season. 

On Nov. 30, the Seahawks defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 23-17. Metcalf had a big game that sent him into the history books once again. 

After Seattle’s win, the Seahawks posted a tweet on Metcalf’s latest achievement. DK is now the fastest player in the franchise’s history to reach 1,000 receiving yards in a season, and he did this in only 11 games. 

Metcalf went toe-to-toe with Darius Slay, the Eagles’ corner, who allowed a completion percentage of 72.7 for the night.

“They got to try to do something,” Wilson said about the Eagles’ defense on Metcalf. “Can’t get in his head. It’s hard to cover him. In my opinion, he’s unmatchable.”

The 22-year-old had a little extra fire inside him heading into this matchup.

In 2019, Metcalf was slated to be drafted in the early-to-middle section of the first round. The call didn’t come until the second round, though, when he was selected by the Seahawks. One of the teams that were in the market for a wide receiver and passed on Metcalf was the Eagles.

It’s not only against the Eagles but the rest of the NFL that DK Metcalf is leaving opponents behind.
