The NFL World isn’t blissful with the Thanksgiving Day punishment decision.

Multiple Cowboys players were fined for jumping into the Salvation Army basket after scoring a touchdown on Thanksgiving Day.

All the Cowboys tight ends jumped into the bucket after scoring a touchdown against the Giants. Dallas fans – and the remaining of the NFL – aren’t too blissful with the punishment call.

“The NFL fined #Cowboys tight ends Dalton Schultz ($13,261), Jake Ferguson ($4,895), Peyton Hendershot ($3,944) and Sean McKeon ($4,994) for his or her Whack-A-Mole celebration within the Salvation Army bucket. Prescott said teammates would cover any fines,” Tom Pelissero reported.

NFL fans think it’s too extreme.

“Actual No Fun League moment that’s so wild,” one fan wrote.

“It is a bad move from the NFL.That they had a harmless celebration that brought more awareness to the Salvation Army cause. That is nonsense,” one fan added.

“Perhaps the @NFL could use and plan kettle celebrations to boost awareness and encourage charity donations as a substitute of fining players and lining their very own greedy pockets. Give the fines to charity you greedy a—– organization. This celebration was great and your comprehend it,” one other fan added.

“Fining guys for raising awareness for charity in the course of the holiday season. Class act,” one other fan wrote.

The Cowboys beat the Giants on Thanksgiving Day at home in Dallas. Mike McCarthy’s team is about to tackle the Colts on Sunday night.
