CFL reviewing Arland Bruce's Michael Jackson tribute
CFL

The CFL thinks that Arland Bruce's MJ tribute in the endzone was Bad...

It appears the CFL is not much of a Michael Jackson fan..at least when his dances are used for endzone celebrations. The league is currently reviewing Arland Bruce's endzone celebration where he paid tribute to MJ - by disrobing, lying down in the endzone, and pretending to be dead.

Maybe the CFL should worry more about viewership....

I think what Arland Bruce of the Argos did was a little bit disrespectfull to the Jackson family. I hope the CFL gives him a big fine. Plus to the people who fired the low shots at him about him fondling the ball like a 3 year old should have kept that comment to them self. So Think about your comment before you put it down first.

Or "Old Hickory" Andrew Jackson and deal a death blow to the nullification crisis with a reenactment of the Compromise Tariff of 1833.  Now that would be a HOT end zone celebration!

Wow, since when is "playing dead" honoring anyone besides Lassie?

He literally took off his jersey and shoulder pads and laid on the ground. This guy should have just grabbed his crotch a few times and screamed. It would be less disturbing.

Yeah, couldn't he have moonwalked or something? Man, the CFL is a$$ backwards lol.

Let me guess, his next TD act will be fondling the football like a 3yr old boy.

Wait, wait. Paying tribute to someone dead, is playing dead? What the heck, stop with the stupid dances and freak-show stuff that you do after scoring. Save that for, idk, America's Got Talent or something.

The CFL has let so much end zone garbage go this was bound to happen. From guys line dancing, duck-duck-goose games and so on it was only a matter of time before crap like this started. I may be boring and old school but there is no room for BS celebrations like this in any sport.

If you get in the end zone, act like you've been there before.

I agree. AB's antics were perfect for Summertime... NO CLASS

JUST MY OPINION!!!! I do know a lot of MJ fans found this offensive until I saw the video. The first thing that came to my mind was rest in peace. I think that is what Arland Bruce was trying to say with his TD celebration. So, I'll say it for Arland. Rest In Peace, MJ....

Arland Bruce, you are an idiot. Not only you're flagged for excessive celebration, but you also upset the Jackson family as well, you moron! Somewhere in the NFL Ochocinco is shaking his head.
