Re: Report: NFL considering banning goal post dunk

This isn't a player safety issue; it is a delay of game issue. The delay was only caused because of JG screwing up the goal post at Atlanta because he hung on. They want to fix it? Simply ban hanging on the goal post and its done.

As much as it entertained me to see Graham do that to Atlanta I can admit it delayed the game and I can admit that if Gonzalez or any other team did that to one of ours I would be upset at the delay. And if they want to ban goal post dunk then they need to get rid of the leap as well.

Re: Report: NFL considering banning goal post dunk

Looking at it objectively, yes, a slam dunk after a TD would qualify as excessive celebration. However, the timing of this discussion puts Goodell in the N.O cross-hairs again.
At what point does it stop? Sherman got a $9000 fine for making the choking sign, but not for humiliating Crabtree. How hard is it to define bad sportsmanship vs. pure exuberation?

I am probably in the minority, but I see it as a good thing. Just a matter of time before someone pops an ACL doing that. While they at it, should ban the Lambeau leap too for the same reason.

Every player should start doing the leap into the stands... then they can ban that too.

Or just make the goal posts stronger so they don't move when someone touches it.

Crazy idea, yeah I know.

Re: Report: NFL considering banning goal post dunk

What's next? A fine and 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalty for "excessive smiling" after a TD?

A penalty or fine for blinking too much during a game?

Re: Report: NFL considering banning goal post dunk

The NFL is rightfully protecting their product and investment. Dealing with bent goal posts on a nationally televised game and or the possibility of a broken ankle or wrist outside of game play/practice are not risks I would take either.

If jimmy wanted to dunk there was always plenty of opportunity to do that in the NBA.
