    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.

    Disagree completely. It's all part of the entertainment that is sports. I like when people show emotion. I laugh when people celebrate meaningless personal achievements while their team is down 20 points (I actively encourage it, shouting at players who I have on my fantasy team to "Get up and talk some trash!" no matter the situation). I enjoy clever celebrations.

    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'm not crazy about it, but I also am not the least bit bothered by it. I guess the question I have is this:

    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.

    Like I said, maybe I'm getting old and cranky, but it impresses more when a person acts like they've been there before. It has nothing to do with taking sports seriously, but I'd like it if the guys I pay money to pull for would mirror my own personal values a little more closely. Call me selfish.

    I agree. Someone said that they like it when players showed emotion...I agree. But those touchdown "celebrations" are not showing emotion...they're pre-rehearsed for goodness sakes. Showing emotion is spiking the ball down with a victorious scream of exhaultation....not dancing a jig and signing your name on a ball. Give me a break. It's gone way past poor sportsmanship...it's downright pathetic IMO.

    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.

    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.

    "Sportsmanship" went out the window the minute they started paying people to play. Sports are a business. The athletes competing aren't playing sports to test their own limits or to have fun with other people -- they're playing to make money, set records, and be famous / revered.

    Just my opinion, but I think it's silly to hold modern athletes to standards of sportsmanship.

    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.
