Yes, the Denver Broncos have a “Fart Tax” in place, according to linebacker Von Miller, and apparently he isn’t joking, writes the Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala.
Thinking about it, it makes sense. Where in an other profession would this be acceptable? Certainly not in a board room and certainly not in anything related to the restaurant business, so why should a football team meeting be different?
Von Miller said the Broncos have a fine system for, um, flatulence in meetings. Said he thinks he’s been fined the most.

Miller also went into more detail about his feelings on the rule:
“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.”
TMI, Von… TMI.
