Trolling On Another Level
You gotta appreciate Metcalf’s commitment to trolling the NFL…
If you’re not a Seahawks fan, you might find DK Metcalf to be kind of an annoying hothead. However, you’d have to admit that he does have some great moments. After torching the Cowboys for a 73-yard touchdown, Metcalf pulled out a unique celebration at the Seahawks game.
He decided to use American Sign Language to send the message, “standing on business.” He had previously revealed that he was learning sign language so he could talk trash without getting penalized or fined. Looks like he was telling the truth.

Now, him saying “standing on business” isn’t really controversial unless I’m missing something. It’s hard to see a scenario where the NFL punishes him for that. It’s kind of cool that Seahawks fans with hearing impairments now get some representation in Seahawks games from one of the team’s best players.
That said, this is the NFL so they might figure out a way to punish him. I really don’t understand why the league is so hellbent on cracking down on players having fun during NFL games. I do understand cracking down on player safety but what’s so dangerous about players celebrating touchdowns? I’m personally getting sick of NFL news about players getting fined.
In his career, DK Metcalf has been fined a total of $98,033 for excessive celebration or unsportsmanlike conduct.
So, he spent his downtime learning ASL — and now talks trash in sign language.

You gotta appreciate Metcalf’s commitment to trolling the NFL. If they did end up fining him, there could and should be some backlash. There’s no reason why he should be punished. If he sent a direct message to a player, then he could probably get in trouble but he didn’t do anything that bad.
But now that Metcalf knows a bit of sign language, the opportunities could be endless. I really want to see him get in a player’s face and start signing a bunch of trash talk to him. That’d be hilarious. Metcalf is such a big trash-talker that he’ll probably do it.
DK Metcalf learning sign language is awesome. Learning it to also shit talk on the field is even better.

He’s gonna have the whole NFL doing sign language before he retires. You can’t help but respect the hustle and now he’s learning a valuable skill out of this. Maybe I’ll start taking sign language classes.
