Re: Player Celebrations

Every time I finished & signed an eval I always struck a selfie pose & thumped my chest to make sure everybody in the office knew I did my job.

Think it annoyed some folks, though.

Re: Player Celebrations

And then you have the Jets player who was fined his lunch money and not suspended for using the ball to wipe his ass. I guess the NFL saw this was a team named NEW York not New Orleans.

I feel embarrassed for them sometimes to be honest.

Re: Player Celebrations

ESPN, NBC, CBS would never do a story on it because they'd risk alienating the very athletes they need for stories - but someone really needs to do a piece...

Re: Player Celebrations

The "doing your job" part is tackling, running good routes, throwing precise passes.
Scoring, sacking, or creating a turnover are causes for celebration.
Do people not high five after a big sale or promotion? I've seen grown men dance after a fantasy player kicks a FG, or when they get a face card after doubling down in blackjack.

These are young men. Let them celebrate their success. If the opponent doesn't like it, they know what to do.

Re: Player Celebrations

Yep Scam Newton was the king of pulling the superman out after scoring a late fourth quarter TD when his team is down multiple scores. Pathetic. There is a time and place for celebrations and common sense should dictate when they are brought out. Too many lack that super power though.

Absolutely nothing wrong with passion for success and the game. Just do it at appropriate times and its always better when it's spontaneous.
