Well, we’ve all heard that phrase before. The NFL, or the No Fun League. There are currently rumors circulating that further reinforce the league’s nickname.
sack dances; home run swing; incredible hulk; spiking the ball; spinning the ball; throwing or shoving the ball; pointing; pointing the ball; verbal taunting; military salute; standing over an opponent (prolonged and with provocation); or dancing.In particular spinning the ball will most likely result in a 15-yard penalty if it is spun in such a way that the player is taunting his opponent.Deadspin has since re-reported that currently the spinning of the ball won’t apply to touchdown celebrations, but only as the team is moving the ball down the field.Either way; this is crazy talk. This is the NFL people. God forbid that we watch a game where the players have fun and celebrate their on field accomplishments. Who wants to watch people having fun? Head nods in affirmation that a touchdown was made only. Referees better watch how exuberantly they make the touchdown signal-don’t want the crowd to get the wrong idea. THIS IS A SERIOUS SPORT DAMMIT NOT A CHILDREN’S BIRTHDAY PARTY.Clearly, I’ve had little sleep, but I still think I make a valid argument. Touchdown celebrations are a part of the game. Fans love them and the players who make those touchdowns should be allowed to celebrate.
