    Gotta say, it's the measure of a real man to follow through with his commitment to be a special part of these kids lives like JJ has. His word is his bond -- they call that integrity. [​IMG]

    It looked like he was skiing to me, but what the heck do I know.

    It was a pretty hard lick he put on him too.

    That sack allowed us to get the ball back and score the tying TD. Reason enough to dance to me

    I know I'm going to get crucified for this . . .

    But when I saw him dancing after the sack, I commented out loud, "WTF is he doing dancing when we're losing?"

    I wasn't cool with it then, and I'm still not. I don't care what reason he had. It just looked bad. There's a time and place, and then there's a time and a place. And celebrating when you're losing is not the time or the place.

    Nah dude, I agree with you. I dislike dances in general though, so I am a bit biased.

    If you call it a dance, then you're right, that's celebrating when you're losing. If it's a message to someone that has special meaning, then it's not "celebrating".

    I don't think you'll get crucified for it. It's your opinion and I can see where you're coming from. I personally didn't think much of it at the time either way. It was a big play at the time so I didn't mind him doing his dance. If we were getting blown out I'm sure I'd feel different, but he did it with a personal message behind it. Much different than Cam doing the Super Man while down by 3 touchdowns.

    When I saw it live, I thought, "someone on TT is going to be upset since we are down"

    The back story is great and thanks to the OP for posting it for us to see. I have no problem with it, especially given the reason behind it.

    It was a big sack, it helped the momentum flow our way. I'm not going to lie i celebrated, but i saluted. Now i have to go learn this wheelchair dance! :d:

    I take this viewpoint. For this occasion only.
    The man made a promise to a kid that was special to him and going thru some tough times.
    While I agree that dancing when you're losing is normally dumb and inappropriate; but I think he has a get out of jail free card for this instance.

    Anytime someone makes a big play that can potentially put their team back in the game or on top, I don't see the problem.

    What's the fun if they can't get the offense hyped up who are about to go out on the next possession. Being old and grumpy is dumb in my opinion...haha

    If it were for a reason or not, at that point in the game, I was celebrating with him. Now I see it had a double meaning.

    Yeah, it bugged me a bit too, but it was still a stop of sorts.

    The cheerleaders dancing right in front of a downed player bugged me FAR more. It was really strange.

    I dunno. Kinda as the smell of damage control if you ask me. But whatever.

    I just hope he's smart enough not to do it again the next time the defense is getting their heads handed to them.

    I can't see it that way. Truthfully, at the time it rubbed me the wrong way as well. After hearing the explanation behind I have no problem with it whatsoever. JJ made a promise and he kept it. A man of his word and I respect that.

    Damage control? Now I feel like you're coming dangerously close to questioning his character. If JJ says he did it for the Berry kids then I believe him. No one would throw these kids in the mix to try to cover their butt. You can not like the fact that he did it, but to think its damage control is just recklessly silly in my book. He's been nothing but stand up since he's been here, broke out a new move, and explained why he did. I'm sure he was asked what that meant and he said why.

    For the record I thought he was doing the cat daddy when I first saw it. Search youtube Kate Upton doing the cat daddy and you'll see what I'm talking about. You can thank me later.
