Re: Officials warn players: Spinning the ball can result in a penalty

Before I say what I want to say I want to make sure that no one misconstrues this comment as a defense of Führer Goodell. You'll never catch me taking up for his idiocy. I just want to point out that all he is doing by enforcing these types of BS rules is conforming to the societal pussification of man. No bullying. Wah. No hitting too hard. Wah. No showboating (even if it's purely for entertainment value). Wah. Society has forced his hand. If he sat back and left it they way it was eventually the NFL would be shunned by a large portion of society. Hell, they're just a few more "people complaining" from being forced to rename a team (Redskins). If you think that battle is over, you're even more naive than I thought. I don't blame Goodell any more than I blame the parents that won't let their kids play football because "it's too rough". He's just a conformist just like everyone else involved in the pussification process.

Indeed.

I'm right there with you. I'm in the "act like you've been there before" club. Show-boating is classless to me no matter when it happens in a game, IMO.

Celebrating vs Show-Boating is where the real arguement is, because it falls to a matter of opinion and we all certainly differ in that aspect.

This, let the players play IMO. If your team doesn't want to see the other team celebrate, stop them from making big plays or scoring.

Re: Officials warn players: Spinning the ball can result in a penalty

As far as the side show goes, I could care less.

Some of the more outrageous celebrating does lead me to view it as that player having more of a "look at me, look at what I did", attitude and mind set; over a team mentality...

Put the sharpie up punk, you are 1 of 11 and you didn't do sh1t by your self.... This is not baseball, you cant score on your own.

Exactly the way I feel. Well said.

Re: Officials warn players: Spinning the ball can result in a penalty

I will also add...... If you want to impress me with a celebration? Go hug a lineman, he made every yard and every point possible.

If you don't understand why people like me don't care for the TO's, Ochostinko's, Neon's of the world it is because they act like they accomplished something on their own.

Re: Officials warn players: Spinning the ball can result in a penalty

T.O. and Ocho are just as upset, if not more when they're team loses a game. Nobody plays the game wanting to lose. And people who don't celebrate are just as prone to a me 1st mentality then someone who does. Its actually more commonplace then you think. Leaving a team for more money and going to the highest bidder is an indicator. Holding out on your team. Etc. Everybody is out for themselves and their future. Its a GAME. Goodell is a stick in the mud.
