I'm waiting for the 3 act play, with costumes and scenery. Of course teams will have to hire a "Director of Directors" to oversee the "Celebrations"

Re: Player Celebrations

I think we just need more humble Barry Sanders type players who will hand the ball to the ref and act like nothing happened to counter all the look-at-me types.

Re: Player Celebrations

You know I liken that to a "real" workplace. It is okay to celebrate something well above and beyond your job, but really they are just doing their job

Wasn't it Sanders who said once, "When you get to the end zone, act like you've been there before" or something to that affect. I don't mind some enthusiasm but some of these celebrations have worn out their welcome. Especially when you're getting your butt handed to you, you make one good play and you act like you just won the Super Bowl.

Re: Player Celebrations

Honestly I dont like the group poses even when our team does it. But we forget that these are just twenty something yr old kids getting paid a ton of money.

Re: Player Celebrations

I don’t mind the group pictures, at the appropriate times. I don’t think I have seen our D do that stuff when they’re getting blown away in the other 59 mins of the game.

The group celebrating I understand. Those are pictures guys can look back on and remember the team they had, and regardless of winning that season they will recall the people they’re with. However, I cannot stand the individual scripted celebrations. If it appears to be planned out then that hour spent on the practice for that celebration could have been spent on getting better.

Losers make excuses, winners find a way!

Re: Player Celebrations

What I find ridiculous is a player celebrating a TD with their team down four TD's with 5min left to play,

Re: Player Celebrations

Celebrations are for victories, not doing your job.

Imagine if everyone at work struck a pose and took a selfie everytime they did their job...

Well, I'm retired, but I do take the occasional selfie after successfully mowing the lawn or taking out the garbage.
