In Green Bay - Washington and a few other places.
But not AT&T Stadium.
That is a good thing to get fined for.
That's my guess. Someone drills someone in the face and then they sue.
no doubt if it was called the "Cowboy leap" it would have been banned years ago.
Stupid fine. I bet the fan who caught is very happy. No Fun League. SMH
Aren't there supposed to be penalties for excessive celebrations this year? I'm sure I read that somewhere... there are supposed to be penalties for signalling "first down" and dancing after plays if I recall, also for spinning the ball on the ground after the play. So far, I see it is still being done by other teams, but I haven't seen any fines or penalties. So am I delusional, did something change, or are the refs/leagues just not calling it?
Me neither, the goodwill created by the fans getting free balls has outweigh whatever minor cost they incur.
I'd love to hear the reasoning behind this ******* rule
Maybe some fan got hit in the face with a game ball and sued somebody. I guess you never know.
16 ounce beers in the stadium? $9
throwing a ball into the stands? $5k
scoring a TD against the division rival NY Giants? priceless
In my opinion, there ought to be no penalties on excessive celebration at all, as long as it does not disrupt the actual game itself (i.e., preventing the next play from proceeding on time.)
They should fine Cruz for his salsa dancing also.
I think they need to institute a rule that you can't celebrate on team logos.
Not the name of the team, that covers most of the end zone, just the logo.
I'm personally getting tired of all the celebrations taking place on our logo. Do it league wide and make it fair.
Only if he played for Dallas.
I thought the league banned dancing after touchdowns. What happened?
True. Did anyone else see the RB from Detroit? Jumped up on the wall and led a cheer/dance with the crowd. Extremely excessive.
Edit to post link
When I saw him chuck it, I thought for sure a yellow flag was coming. Stupid for him to do that.
I don't know why people are complaining about the fine for throwing the ball into the stands. It's been a fine since at least the 70's so it's not something new. Plus it's a safety thing. People scramble for a foul baseball. Imagine the scramble for a football with some unruly fans.
I hope he keeps doing that. It would be awesome to see the entire crowd get into with him.
Wow. Good point, I had not considered that angle of it.
Can you imagine what people would do for a TD ball from one of the superstars in the league?
That one guy on MNF a few years back jumped into the entrance way to get a shanked FG.
Actually, wasn't shanked. Just over the net.
And what a well kept mullet, to boot.
Al Michaels is on fire in that clip. The Jerry crack, signing a deal with the Bears, guy's stoked in more ways than one.
