ROFL oh my lord
BTW, besides the penalty it would incur on its own, I'm guessing they'll also get a Delay of Game one too!
Can you get multiple delay of games on the same delay of games? :)
I'm expecting one of them to score a touchdown, and promptly take out a cell phone and call the other standing in the opposite corner of the endzone. Who knows what will go down this year with these two.
I expect them to run a route with one or the other on each other shoulders
I know it's the Onion, but it's probably not far from the truth. I hate to sound old, but I really liked the NFL better when guys just cared about scoring touchdowns and knocking opposing players out of games and didn't spend time dancing every time they gained ten yards or made a tackle.
I guess I just don't take sports as seriously as some people do -- I love them, I live and die personally by the play of my favorite teams, but at the end of the day I understand that they're pretty meaningless in the greater picture of life. People are being paid to play a game. I don't think it's right to sit back and chide them for not treating the playing field like a courtroom.
I don't mind when players celebrate touchdowns. I actually like it. I can't stand when players celebrate other plays, such as a 6 yard reception for a first down.
Why does it have to be either/or. What I mean by that... can't a player have fun & entertain while also being a hard-worker that takes the game seriously? That's not directed at you specifically, CE, as that wasn't the point you were making. But I laugh when people get bent out of shape over these dances, as they imply that therefore the players don't work hard or take the game seriously. That they want to have a little fun on the side while wanting to win is in no way, for me, an indictment of their character, work ethic or commitment.
I like sports to be entertainment, but in the course of the game, celebrating a tackle after allowing a 15 yard gain belongs in garbage like pro wrestling.
I'll stick to college football.
The only time the emotion and celebration looks bad to me is if you losing a game by a fairly significant margin, or having a bad year as a whole.
Please, no dancing if you score a 4th quarter touchdown to pull to within 18, or if you are 4-10 heading into week 15.
Andre Smith can play the fat lady. It ain't over till he sings.
I just hope they all don't die in the end.
