Report: NFL Investigating Possible Gang Gestures

The NFL is reportedly investigating a different style of hand signals possibly being used on the field.  The “Los Angeles Times” reports the league has hired experts to see if players are flashing gang signs during on-field celebrations.  The NFL is enlisting the help of local and national authorities to learn more about gang culture, and according to the paper, the experts are watching game tapes to see if they can identify the gestures.  The league’s vice president of security, Milt Ahlerich, told the paper that any player seen flashing gang signals will be dealt with harshly, and commissioner Roger Goodell will not tolerate any gang-related gestures on the field. 

The investigation comes after Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce was fined 25-thousand dollars by the NBA for making “menacing gestures” as he walked toward the Atlanta Hawks’ bench during the first round of the NBA playoffs in April.
