".....cause Santana and Clinton were standing side by side with their arms crossed."

That's pretty radical stuff right there...Arms crossed?

Now I can understand the neck slash gesture being banned but arms crossed?

What next? A loitering flag in the end zone if you stop moving?

Utter BS.

Re: Is this lame or what?

The NFL tried to crack down on celebrations (Thank god they stopped Steve Smith, his idewas were awful) but players like Chad JOhnson, Joe Horn, TO have fun with it. This is the big boy league, if that teams feelings get hurt when scored on GOOD. You got scored on, take your ichy shuffle like a man!

That kind of stuff happens all the time, in fact the Jags did it later in the game and didn't get flagged.

When they put this rule in place I don't think that's the kind of stuff they were looking to get rid of.

Use your head refs.
I almost shot myself in the head after seeing that...I thought we were going to lose because of some dumb bullshit like that

Re: Is this lame or what?

I think the clebration rule is dumb. They should restrict the time the guys are there but I used to love things like the fun bunch jump and the dirty bird dance.

Bastards

I think the Fun Bunch is one of the main reasons that this rule ever came to be. Apparently a dallas player decided to break it up a long time ago and a fight broke out.

I watched the NFL replay of the game last night and that flag was unbelievable, especially since leftwhich picked up reggie williams and carried him in the 4th.
However, it may actually have been called on Portis because he stood next to Moss with his arms crossed for about .05 seconds, so maybe they considered that a group celebration.

Re: Is this lame or what?

Clearly two guys standing next to each other and posing the same for 1 second is way worse than Chad Johnson doing the Funky Chicken for 10 seconds and looking like a complete dumbass. What a dumbshit rule.

Re: Is this lame or what?

amd, the game you are referring to was right after Clark scored on Dallas, and the fun bunch was lining up, Dennis Thurman tried to get in the middle and prevent it. it didn't work and started a scuffle. i say let them celebrate. and if you dont want it, stop them from scoring

Re: Is this lame or what?

For once in my life I was right!!!!!

In Gibbs' press he was talking about the flag on the celebration and said that it actually wasn't thrown because Lloyd picked up Moss; it was because a player (it was Portis) stood next to Moss and crossed his arms in a similar fashion. The refs interpretted this as a pose and the flag came out.
It's kind of BS, but I guess i understand it in terms of the rule. Plus, it explains why the jags didn't get a flag later on.

Re: Is this lame or what?

Yeah, this rule came in to kiss the ass of dull-ass and to scr*w us. Sounds familiar? I mean, it really makes sense eliminating group celebrations. (Don't high-five, you will be flagged for choreography!) After all, football is an individual sport, right? OOPS!

I don't think it was Clark though. That was before GC's time I believe

Re: Is this lame or what?

IF there has to be a no-celebration rule, it should be TOTALLY subjective ... the ref should look at each incident on an individual basis, and decide if it's unsportsman-like.

It was the game where the Redskins went into Texas wearing combat fatigues. Dec. 11, 1983. Monk scored the TD


Shameless Plug

http://www.thewarpath.net/2005-game-...-v-dallas.html

When the Redskins and Cowboys met on December 11, 1983 the rivalry was as strong as ever. Both teams were 12-2 going into the match up at Texas Stadium. Having won the season opener over the Redskins, a win would mean the NFC East for the Cowboys. But the Redskins were ready to battle, so much so that they arrived at Dallas wearing army fatigues. And early on, it looked like the Redskins would win this war easily. On their first two possessions, the Skins scored two touchdowns to jump out to a 14-0 lead. But Dallas wouldn’t go down quietly. The momentum shifted when Riggo was stopped on 4th and inches at midfield allowing the Cowboys to start a mini-rally and go into the locker room down just 14-10. The momentum shifted right back at the start of the second half, with Dallas facing 4th and less than a yard at midfield. Landry called for a hard count to try to draw the Redskins offsides. Instead, the TV cameras caught a shocked Landry on the sideline as White audible and handed it off to Ron Springs who was quickly stuffed. Rookie CB Darrell Green would help seal the game with an interception that set up a 43-yard TD pass from Joe Theismann to Art Monk. John Riggins put the final nail in the coffin with his second TD of the day, his 23rd of the year (tying OJ Simpson for most rushing TDs in one season…whatever happened to that Simpson guy?), to make the final score Redskins 31, Cowboys 10.
