the most retarded one?
people are getting paid to make rules like these? jesus christ, how bored can one be to sit around in a room and convince yourself that is a good rule.
I like the rule.
What's the big deal with celebrating as you score? Stupid rule.

Villains make sports more fun. If they legislate every opportunity for players to show their dickishness completely out of the game, it will make bitter rivalries a bit blander. Players like BVP are what really get the hatred going for both players and fans.
in the NFL, fine. not in college/hs/peewee athletics. they are still kids and can be molded into good citizens. its a fine line. i am meh on the rule. kinda like it, kinda dont. i dont want the emotion taken out of the game but i dont like the smack for the sake of smack. i like the attitude of "when you score a TD, act like you know your going to be back there again for another TD."
what we are talking about is the showboating. the "look at me" mentality. i hate that mentality in a team sport. sure there are some better players on any team but if that RB had not picked up the blitzing LB, the QB never would have gotten that pass off to you.... so, go give your RB some love you friggin primadonna. that is the lesson that should be learned. not the "look at me attitude" and being rewarded for it. some need a big lid put on their egos and this MAY be a good start.
still a fine line though. what about a game winning TD? damn freaking right that kid is going to go ape**** and should be allowed to do so without it effecting the outcome of the game. that is just as bad.
but, people need to learn to control themselves. ****..... i dunnno......... :lol:
This has already happened, see: AJ Green's touchdown vs LSU, 2009. The TD of course wasn't nullified but the penalty for the ensuing kickoff cost Georgia the game. The penalty on Green was completely BS to begin with and honestly I don't think we can trust officials to make these kind of judgment calls. There is a difference between things like this which don't affect the outcome of a play and holding, facemasks etc which actually impact the game. Celebration is, to put it one way, a victimless crime. And if they are going to throw flags for celebrating on scores, why do they NOT do it at any other time of the game? High stepping in is pretty much the EXACT same thing as a DE **** talking a quarterback after he sacks him, yet I have never seen a player penalized for it. Refs should be there to protect the safety of the players and enforce the rules, not to babysit and be chaperones.
Agreed. Celebration penalties are incredibly dumb.
I absolutely hate celebration penalties. We need to be doing everything we can to make the game more exciting, not dull it down.
