Default TD celebrations might be curtailed

"Bad news might be on the horizon for Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson and the other purveyors of outrageous touchdown celebrations.

The NFL's competition committee is proposing a crackdown on rocking the baby, teeing off like Tiger and anything else that might be considered taunting."

Ditto. I guess good sportmanship is old fashioned to this generation, along with respect for your elders, and a host of other things. Generation Y and X is more like generation s-u-c-k.

Okay, that last part was just for fun. Don't throw maters.

If you ask me the NFL competition comittee should be cracking down on refs and what common folks like us see are BS calls. The celebrations should be the least of the NFL's concerns right about now.

Outrageous touchdown celebrations can be directly correlated to the degeneration of the --American way of -- life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

I also strongly feel that TABC should stake out football games and arrest fans that may be acting different from others in attendance.

In addition I would like my home wiretapped -- just in case...

Win the Superbowl with a TD, dance like no tomorrow. But score a TD in a regular season game, it gets carried away and becomes circus.

I agree with this, too. I think they are talking about making reviews of all calls up in the booth.

They are addressing two urgent issues for refs--allowing review of down by contact/whistle blown calls for turnovers (think of the Manning fumble in 2004--called an incomplete pass, Capers challenged, ref said after review that the arm did not come forward so it was a fumble but a whistle blew and so the play was unreviewable) and trying to get specific on what is and is not holding.

I put TD celebrations in the class with cheerleaders, pre game intros, and erectile dysfunction ads. They are all unnecessary but it's what makes the NFL go round.

yeah, I can definitely undestand that pov. I just draw the line at the field of play and turning it into a circus. It cheapens the game, especially when the ball and field are part of the celebrations. All the other stuff you mentioned is sidelines, and I'd have no problem if players went to their benches and did whatever they chose to do.

It's a fine line and I respect both sides of the issue, though.

Porky, I think it is high time we all ate some rinds.

BTW, what the heck do they call the people born between the Baby Boomers and the Gen X'ers, Gen F's?

my thoughts exactly. I don't go to see a player's antics, I go to watch a football team win or lose.

although some of those are down right hilarious

I hate to be negative, but the people that dont like the celebrations are usually from places that have losing teams. I myself am a huge bengals fan and like the rest of my city and much of the country I love when Chad Johnson celebrates. He never does anything disrespectful to the other team, fans, or anything negative. Football is a game that people watch for entertainment, its not life or death. If someone wants to dance for 3 seconds after they score then who cares, if someone wants to pretend its not a big deal then fine. The league should not be concerned about some dancing that is bringing them millions of dollars becuase fans want to watch it. It attracts a whole new crowd that may not previously be watching.

There's a difference between celebrating and performing a one man show. The latter has nothing to do with being part of a team and that's why it annoys me.

So I guess all of you end zone grab assers won't be grabbin any *** this year?

Spiking the ball is a one man show. So is acting a fool. Some of the group choreographed celebrations like the Fun Bunch were the worst ever.

I want my Ickey Shuffle -- it's part of the game's fabric.

I can see where you're coming from aj but it leads me to something else... Is this entertaining performance about sports or theater?

The Olympics are all about athleticism and extraneous drama is shunned. Why? Why is it different from the NFL? Should it be?
