    Sooner or later an important game will be screwed up by one of those penalties.

    Humans can't help but slaughter the goose that lays the golden eggs. Morons.

    But will the players still get orange slices and capri suns after the game?

    Taunting? Seriously? The objective is to march down the field and score. However, when you reach your objective, we don't want you to celebrate it... cause that'll just upset the other team.

    Celebrating is one thing, I hate when people high step from the 50 or run backwards pointing. It's stupid.

    I am curious is where is the line going to be drawn ?

    for example(from the video link) Cosby.. say he dives into the endzone (like he did) closing seconds and was the game winner.. but what happens if UT was up by 20 in the 4th quarter with 2 minutes left.. call a penalty then? because the score is out of hand?

    I like the eyeblack ban because those messages were just silly, but the taunting rule sounds waaaaaaaaaay too broad.
