  • NFL- No More Celebrating Touchdowns???

    Shit Was Getting Out Of Hand Last year...

    ORLANDO, Fla. (March 27, 2006) -- Let's dispense with the "No Fun League" talk from the beginning.

    This isn't about that.

    An NFL competition committee proposal designed to curtail celebrations does not, in any way, attempt to eliminate all forms of players celebrating touchdowns.

    End-zone antics like those performed by Carolina's Steve Smith would be penalized under a new rule proposal.

    Players can still spike the ball in the end zone, spin it on the ground, and dunk it over the goal post if they like (and are able to). They also can dance and even leap into the stands.

    What they can't do is use the ball as a prop in their routine. Nor can they do any celebrating on the ground or be part of any group effort. And when the referee warns them that their celebration has gone on too long and needs to stop, they must stop or be penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct that would be assessed on the ensuing kickoff.

    As they watched videotape of games played during the 2005 season, members of the committee concluded that celebrations simply were getting out of hand. The biggest problem was that they were taking too long and slowing down the game unnecessarily.

    And the committee members weren't the only ones who formed that opinion. Representatives of the NFL Players Association shared that view, and, in fact, encouraged the committee to do something about it in the form of a rules change.

    "The players' association was unanimous in wanting to get this under control," said Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher, who is co-chairman of the competition committee along with Atlanta Falcons general manager Rich McKay.

    No one is looking to prevent players from expressing their joy or having some "artistic freedom" (if that's what it's called) in their celebrations. No one is looking to take any fun out of the game.

    The idea is just to move along the pace of play, and the proposal is more than reasonable in that regard.

          Definitely a lame rule...What exactly is so bad about those celebrations? If they we really concerned about speeding up the game, they'd get better referees who don't spend 20 minutes to make a nonexistent holding call.

            According to the poll on ESPN.com, 75% of the people would consider this a stupid rule.

            Like CJ says the NFL is entertainment and he is going to entertain us.

            I see no problem with celebrating, if the oppossing team doesn't like it, don't let them in the endzone.

            I still think it is stupid that they banned "teams" celebrating a few years back, such team celebrations like the Dirty Bird, etc. It was the whole team that got that guy in the endzone, makes more sense to let the team celebrate.

              That rule is hella wack, I mean the NFL is entertainment, that's what it is about. It brings crowds, that's one of the reason why I started watching the Eagle and Bengals cuz TO and Chad Johnson. I just see why they can't celebrate like that, what's the big deal?

                          lol, or once the ball crosses the endzone your body is not aloud to follow into the endzone with it.

                            God damn, let the guys have some fun. As long as your not directly taunting an opponent it should be fine.

                              That rule sucked the most. I loved watching the dirty bird, the salute, the bob and weave, the shootout and shit like that.
