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

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.

I remember that game. It was the reason for this rule. The cowpies were so pathetic running into the middle and waving their arms around. Next season, guess what? No excessive celebration.

Brings back memories. Man I feel old.

Thank my brother. He's my go to guy to confirm Redskins games from the first Gibbs era. That's his favorite Redskin game of all time. He can recite that sucker almost play by play
