Maybe/Hopefully Goodell realizes that while certain things are 'over the line,' the fans--supposedly who they are supposed to cater their product towards--generally enjoy flavor and celebrations and FUN.
As to your situation, wow, that is awful. I hope that ref took a good long look at himself in the mirror after making a call like that.
I could do without the "celebrations," but that is personal preference and really should be allowed as long as it is not unsportsmanlike conduct, like taunting the opponent or clearly showing up the opponent.
The other call, or no call that I almost forgot about, was on Cadillac's 50 yard run that was sprung when the OT pulled down Landon Johnson (I think, a defender for sure) by his shoulder pads to create the gap. I think that is holding.
