After all, there are plenty of us out there who are unwilling to get up off the couch to even go to the bathroom for fear of the commercial ending early causing us to miss even one 4-yard run on first down.

The NFL's got us by the balls and we love it.

I was just reading the news paper and they said it was ok to spin the ball and those types of things but spiking it so it goes bouncing down fiel will be called.

Obviously, however, I'm just pointing out that if they really were interested in speeding up the game then they wouldn't take the break. I know it's a necessary evil and advertising is a big reason why the NFL is the NFL today, but it's still sort of stupid to me to say that they want to speed up the game when they show commercials any chance they get.

Re: Redskins Insider: Rule Changes And Points Of Emphasis

Ball spiking rule change should put annyoying losers out of business. I've seen way too many player whose team is getting clobbered yet they celebrate and spike the ball after meaningless run/catch.

Re: Redskins Insider: Rule Changes And Points Of Emphasis

I think all ball spinning and spiking chould be stopped, unless of course it Moss. Then, they should have to replay it at least 100 times over the course of the 6 following days.

While I'm not a fan excessive celebrations, it's amazing how many rules we have now. And it all started because the cowboys couldn't stand a simple high 5 celebration.
