  • Okay this is ridiculous

    Also Wednesday, the owners:

    -- approved a 5-yard penalty for players spiking the ball or throwing it up in the air on the field after a play;

    That is just dumb. Big deal if they spike it! If somebody just caught a first down on 3rd and 23 after being smashed between a safety and a linebacker, they're going to have some serious adrenaline pumping through their body. So now you're telling me if they stand up and spike or throw the ball in the air, they don't get that first down? That's just stupid.

    i like it. i work as a shipping manager at an offroad shop; i don't spike my tape gun every time i succesfully package an order.

    i'm tired of seeing celebrations after every play. not just on offense, but defenders dancing after making a standard (or even ugly/lucky) tackles.

    just do your job, and celebrate when you actually do something extraordinary.

          I think its a good idea. These men are professionals it's not too much to ask them to act like it.

            They are literally taking a lot of fun in this game from the players. I am all for reducing horsing around on the field, but they have been taking it a step to far these past couple of seasons. The rule of "no team celebrations" always makes me a bit unhappy. We'll never see the Mile High Salute again they way it once was used because of rules like that. I think if the celebration involves more then two - three players, yeah, penalize (like the bowling ball celebration a few years back) but this IMO is another example of old rich men expecting everyone to play a tough sport in a civilized manner. Let the players have some fun!

              are you sure they would take away the first down in that situation? if so that does seem quite harsh and potentially game changing for such an act as spiking the ball

                I'm back and forth on this one, I don't like the little celebrations after every little play, but some plays are just huge, and if it's a clear momentum changer in a game, I like to see the pure, natural, adrenaline rush experienced by a player, and the result of that big play in all it's glory. So, there are positives, and negatives to the rule. LOL at Shawshank, spiking a tape gun.

                    My word choice was a little off. I didn't mean civilized in the sense of Haynesowrth type of civilized. I meant they want the players to show as little emotion as some of these old guys do. Sorry about the bad word choice, it didn;t get my poit across at alll.....

                    So let me ask you this. As a fan do you celebrate big 1st downs? or long strikes down the field? If we fans are expected to celebrate during plays like that, why cna't a player show a fraction of that on the field?

                      i like it because they're delaying the game, and it's a delay of game penalty

                        They're out there to have fun and be entertainers.


                        I would hardly consider someone with a tape gun an ''entertainer.''
