In the NFL’s defense, Stedman Bailey would have been cool had he not used the ball.

The Rams wide receiver sent out and then deleted two tweets earlier, confirming that he was fined by the league for using the ball as a prop in his celebration.

"Ahhhhhh #NFL Fines suck!!!!! I meant no harm by what I did… Smh," he then wrote. "How u sign up for go fund me? Lol this is bogus man!"

Or at least that’s how head coach Jeff Fisher explained it.

“He used the ball as a prop,” Fisher said. “It’s a foul. It’s a 15-yard penalty and you’re kicking off from the 15-yard line and that’s not part of what we do.”

It was worth it, though.
