It endangers the fans well being. They could lose a finger or hand. Concussion? Lol
ABSOLUTELY ban it.
Those folks in that lil town would then literally have nothing to do...
Next should be. Excessive TD celebrations negate the score.
Great fans, they're also the little darlings of the NFL, no chance they ban it. Although if the other owners decide they want it banned.....it will be.
I could imagine if the Cowboys had the boxes down low in the end zone and we scored.
Player runs by High fiving fans.
Here comes the flag.
They should a ground level box of seats in end zone and call it (after you score a touchdown) - "you just entered the cowboys zone"
Maybe it will be banned, maybe not. I say not. It would come more from Green Bay than the NFL.
We have become a "sue happy" society. If someone gets hurt during one of these jumps and they sue, well watch how fast Green Bay will ask the players NOT to jump into the seats.
In the interim, I think it is rather cool watching that kind of celebration. Kind of funny because the Green Bay fans own the team - suing yourself. At the same time, I think it was quite appropriate to stop jumping on the goal post. I read some article where they held up the game for quite a while trying to fix the problem created by a player. Too lazy to go look up exactly who did it and how long the game was delayed - think it was around 15 minutes. It makes sense to stop that, and in particular with the posts being raised 5 feet. We all know, greater height, the more chance for problems.
So until someone in Green Bay sues, I would say let the celebration go on.
The field goal posts were only extended 5 feet not raised and that was for the higher kicked balls.
Yes, I am aware of that. What I was speaking of is the integrity of the post itself. If not reinforced players could impact the post more. Greater height ----
I should have been clearer about what I was saying.
I don't think any of the celebrations should be banned, but if you're going to ban them, ban them all. Grandfathering the stupid Lambeau Leap is annoying.
Then again, I guess we get the Turkey Day game, and I wouldn't want that to change, so maybe I shouldn't complain about the Packers getting to keep their boring TD celebration.
Who cares? As long as you keep them out of the EZ you don't have to worry about it.
