Bruce in trouble for Canadian Football League TD Tribue to Michael Jackson

TORONTO — The CFL may not be all that thrilled with Arland Bruce's tribute to Michael Jackson in the Argos' 30-17 win in Hamilton.

The league is reviewing the Toronto receiver's TD celebration Wednesday night.

After scoring on a 21-yard pass from Kerry Joseph to put Toronto ahead 6-0, Bruce removed his helmet, shoulder pads and uniform top and laid down in the end zone. Bruce said he was simply honouring the memory of Michael Jackson by pretending to be buried.

Bruce received two objectionable conduct penalties.

"I made the mistake of telling him in camp that once he got to the end zone I didn't care what he did," Toronto coach Bart Andrus said later. "But he's straight with it now and I think next time around he will celebrate in an appropriate manner."
