Endzone Celebrations

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/9341722

I cought a little of the press interview before I went to bed today with Jeff Fisher and the Atlanta GM. I agree that some endzone celebrations are a little over the top and the game could do with out them. In a way I like the idea.

What I do not like is where they say, "Nor can they do any celebrating on the ground or be part of any group effort." Now I do not care about the celebrating on the ground, but the group effort part I do not like.

I understand that it should not be extravagant group effort, like say comming up with a dance routine or to the effect of that. But whats wrong with lets say a team type high-five? Kinda like the fun bunch used to do? I am not sure how many of you guys played football when you were in high school or pee wee leagues, but one thing that my coach was big on was no matter who scored the TD on your team be happy for them and congratulate them, be excited about the score, show emotion...

Re: Endzone Celebrations

Steve Smith's celebrations were pretty... bad. Either way, I hate this rule. I wanna see Icchy Shuffles, I want to see the fun bunch. These are reasons, as a child, before I really understood the game, that I enjoyed football!

I like to see players show emotion. Show they care about the game and aren't just there to get paid and go home.

I completely agree that most of Smith's dances are terrible (excpet when he jumped into the goal post in the playoffs).

Does anyone else remember when Smoot got a 15yrd'er for mimicking M. Washington's sack dance after Washington got one in Detriot? I'm afraid this new emphasis will draw more flags for simple emothional reactions by players.

Also, does this mean we won't see anymore of Clinton's Cartwheels?

Re: Endzone Celebrations

I'm on the fence, I'm all for some celebrations but lately they've been getting a little out of hand. While I love Chad Johnson's weekly routines, I can see how some people may be getting a bit annoyed by this.

Re: Endzone Celebrations

I agree, Matty. Most of the celebrations are stupid, but there are a lot that are done that are fun to watch. Namely Chad Johnson, some of TO's, and when steve smith did the jump I laughed.

It's not like it really slows the game down. The field goal kicker is on his way out. I'm curious exactly what the reasons are for this change. Why do they find it necessary?

Yeah, they got a flag for that because they both were doing that robot thing. The NFL considers that 'choreographed' and subject to a taunting/unsportsmanlike penalty.

It's probably because people feel it's taking away from the game itself. All week leading up to a Bengals game all you hear about is what celebration Chad Johnson is going to do. Not saying I agree, I think it's fun, but I think this could be what the commitee is up in arms over.

Re: Endzone Celebrations

Hey, who else was hoping that Chad Johnson would bring that deer he hit the previous week (which was still alive and healthy, or so he said!) to the game!

Re: Endzone Celebrations

stupid ones,, good ones it dont matter they are touchdown celebrations,, i dont see whats the point in trying to stop it,,they are taking the fun out of it, next season you wont be able to scratch your ass in the endzone without getting a penalty,, it's ridiculos, let the players have fun.. i really hope this rule dont pass

Re: Endzone Celebrations

I agree with the rules. I think it takes away from the TEAM aspect of the game. Spike the ball what ever, but all the individual crap that TO, Johnson, Smith, the over the top crap should stop. You want to jump in the end zone fan area, cool, or thump you chest what ever I can take that. But the Ray Lewis re enactment by TO, and the crap Johnson pulls has to stop. Its just a ploy to market themselves and get TV time. What I would also like to see stopped is all the dancing and crap defensive players make after making a tackle. I mean these guys are jumping around dancing when they stop someone after a 6 yard gain. that to me isn't anything to get all jacked up about. That actually annoys me more than the endzone crap. I have to admit, the cartwheels portis did last year was funny as hell. but that is part of the stuff that needs to be curtailed abit.
