It's gone way past poor sportsmanship...it's downright pathetic IMO.
I'll stick to college football.
That's pretty much how I feel about it. I'm more of the Vince Lombardi school of thought ("Act like you've been there before.") although showing some excitement is fine by me. But I agree that TO and Ochocinco are simply performing choreography...it's not showing excitement.
What bugs me, too, is when a guy celebrates a touchdown as if he's the most awesome receiver ever to grace the NFL but he's dropped passes left and right all day and fumbled a couple of times.
