NFL wants to crack down on on-field taunting



Officials monitoring players taunting each other has been in the league’s rule book, as a point of emphasis.

It’s now moving from the back of the book to the front of the book.

“We’re going to raise the standard on the field,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said.

Fisher, speaking for the league’s competition committee, said this morning that the NCAA had also asked the league to crack down on taunting, to prevent a trickling down through all levels of football.

As such, the league’s going to crack down on taunting.

The new emphasis adds one more thing for officials to worry about on the field, but Fisher was adamant that things were moving down the wrong road. With commissioner Roger Goodell opening the meetings with an emphasis on “respect,” it’s hardly a surprise.

This is good. I have no problems with celebrations and such but the in your face taunting is just stupid and have no place in sports.

Taunting says more about the taunter than it does about the tauntee.
