NFL Restricting More Touchdown Celebrations

If there is one thing I am always thinking about it’s that there is just too much celebrating in the NFL. The guys are just taking it too far. In case it doesn’t come through via print, that was completely sarcastic. The NFL is once again taking steps to ensure no one has any fun at all. This includes:

sack dances; home run swing; incredible hulk; spiking the ball; spinning the ball; throwing or shoving the ball; pointing; pointing the ball; verbal taunting; military salute; standing over an opponent (prolonged and with provocation); or dancing.

One player who isn’t exactly thrilled about all this is Steve Smith. It is pretty much Steve’s signature to spin the ball after a big play but the NFL is coming for that too.

Smith said he plans to keep on doing his signature ball spin, despite an emphasis by officials to crack down on taunting this year.

“We’re working it out,” said Smith, adding he might have to alter his spin.

Officials have been told to penalize players who spin the ball at or in the vicinity of opponents.

When is this going to end? Let the guys have some emotion after they score or make a big play. It’s the least you could do since they are playing a game that shaves years off your life.
