    So, we can leap frog our teammates in a display of superior athletic ability, but we can't hold our thumb and pinkie over our heads? Because that is "too choreographed"?

    I guess that belly bump knocking our teammates lard-ass to the ground is also too choreographed?

    Whatever.

    Lambo leap.... Yes

    Wave at fans.... No.

    seriously?

    boy NFL really is the No fun league but they sure enjoy the "fun " dollars

    There has got to be some common sense in this "celebration" thing..

    someone tell me the Lambeu leap (or something like that) couldn't be deemed as some type of "choreograph" based a refs viewpoint.
    (using the NFL definition here)

    There is too much gray area here for the refs

    I'm not buying that at all. In fact if the head ref for the crew wants to adamantly maintain that was the reason then he needs to be suspended for a couple games for stupidity.

    I'm not buying it either. Not until I hear it from the NFL. I think that is
    Wade just trying to shield Austin & Williams from the media for their stupidity. Roy didn't even flash the hook-em that I saw on that play. He stood straight & still for Austin.

    He did it right after Austin cleared him, then his teammate did it as well....

    What were the refs Aggies? That's a BS call. I hate the Cowgirls and even I think that's BS.
