John Mara ‘very unhappy’ with Odell Beckham’s TD celebration

New York Giants co-owner John Mara indicated in an email to the New York Post Tuesday morning that he was not impressed with Odell Beckham Jr.’s crude touchdown celebration during Sunday’s 27-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The enigmatic Giants wideout mimicked a dog urinating after scoring a touchdown during the fourth quarter of the loss. Beckham was penalized 15 yards for the act.

Mara not surprisingly wasn’t pleased with Beckham’s antics.

“I do not want to get into a discussion about this,” Mara said in the email to the Post. “But I will say that I am very unhappy with Odell’s behavior on Sunday and we intend to deal with it internally.”

Beckham indicated on Monday in a tweet that his celebratory antics might have been inspired by President Donald Trump’s remarks calling NFL players who protest during the anthem “sons of b—-es.”

Beckham later explained the celebration as follows.

“I was in the end zone. I scored a touchdown,” Beckham said, via NJ.com. “I’m a dog so I acted like a dog. I don’t know if the rulebook said you can’t hike your leg. (The referee) said I peed on somebody, so I was trying to find the imaginary ghost that I peed on. But I didn’t see him.”

Regardless of the inspiration behind the celebration, it would appear it resulted in Beckham being in the Giants owner’s doghouse, as it were.
