The defensive star for the Denver Broncos says players fine each other for flatulence — and he admitted to being the most frequent offender.

Von Miller told The Denver Post that he gets fined often for passing gas during meetings. He said the fines stem from a system devised by players for the offense.

“They can’t fine me if I get up and walk away. It’s NOT healthy. I keep trying to tell them it’s not healthy if I just sit there and hold it in. Nobody in the world does that. I just do it more than the average person,” Miller told the Denver Post.

Miller said he thinks he’s been fined the most.

Many leagues and teams make professional athletes pay for their actions to try and break bad habits.

Do you think Von Miller should be fined for flatulence or should he be given a break?
