This incredible Chinese arena league celebration would get every flag in the NFL

This is one of the best celebrations you’ll ever see, period. We all have fond memories of Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson getting fined with elaborate celebrations in the early 2000s, but the Chinese Arena Football League is taking that way further than NFL players ever did.

What makes this one great is the levels of it. The whole fishing and reeling in of another player is hilarious, especially how the receiver sold it — struggling to get off the hook and all. Then it gets taken to a whole other level when teammates hoisted him up and posed for a trophy photo.

This would have been flagged for excessive celebration, while also breaking the rules on group celebrations. Technically an invisible fishing rod can’t be a prop — right?
