    the spiking, I really had no problem with someone doing that after a good play.It brings emotion to the game (I do admit I hate it when the opposite team does it to us)

    elimination of crowd noise (haven't found exactly what they are doing with that one or what they tweaked)..what is this GOLF or Tennis?

    woooohooooooooo!!!!!! :redtowel: :fans: :texflag:

    How can it be the No Fun League when they are telling us fans that we can now help support our defense at home?! Seriously, crowd noise can play a factor in the game, which is one of the few instances in professional sports where the fans can actually affect the game on the field.

    Bring back the House of Pain for the Demolition Crew Texans D!!! :d:

    I think this has more to do with delaying the game than sportsmanship. Even though it is pretty cheesey when they do it. I don't have a problem when a player is pumped and does a corny gesture of some sort. But when a ref has to scamper 15 yards to pick up the ball that was spiked, it should be a delay of game.:)

    I agree. Spiking the ball in that situation delays the game and is just silly. One thing I don't like is when a player makes a regular tackle in the middle of the game, and then does a dance like he won the Super Bowl. In the Giants game last week when the defense was getting torched by Carolina, they would make a single tackle and every Giant would dance like they were on Dance Fever.

    Yes!!!!!!! Been a pet peeve for years! Stop dancing like you won the Super Bowl when you're actually doing something called "doing your job."

    That's why I always enjoyed watching Walter Payton and Barry Sanders, very professional in thier actions when they scored a TD..They did thier dances WHILE they were running...

    I don't mind that as much. Now if it's a tackle 2 yards or more downfield then the dance is pretty useless.

    Having played for a long time at DE, making a play in the backfield is big. Some people show it, some don't. I was never one to dance around. I was always one that celebrated with my teamates by high fives, headbutts, etc.:d:
