    I am not bothered either way by this. Players got by fine before without having to dunk over the goalpost.

    Worry about your playoff performance instead of this, Jimmy.

    Obviously they will be fine, but whats the point of banning this?

    It's not like players dunking on goal posts forced me to turn the game off.

    It's probably to do with it effecting the balance of the goal post

    Who was the first player to ever dunk over the goalpost? It's one of YOUR Dallas Cowboys...

    First right answer wins three interwebs for a year...

    I somehow missed the game where Graham completely screwed up the goalpost on one of his dunks..probably what brought this on.

    Yep...

    People these days don't realize what a talent he was. He was the original Lawrence Taylor...

    He was a linebacker and punt and kick returner. That's STILL unheard of. Good size and blazing speed...Had he not gone off of the deep end, he would be in the HoF...

    I miss the days where T.O , Steve Smith, Chad Johnson, and Randy Moss were all competing for the best touchdown celebrations.

    That was great.

    Ahh im getting emotional here.

    And they were getting 15 yard penalties, which hurt their teams. Although I don't recall Moss being a part of any of that.

    He never danced as elaborately but I would of put him in the tier right below him.

    I could care less about the penalties. I would be ok with Dez pulling a sharpie out of his shoe to sign a football ala T.O.

    The NFL dislikes celebrations on the field using the ball as a prop, but the NFL is willing to create this "package" where they can use cheerleaders as a prop for entertainment for fans.

    Gimme a break here NFL.

    The penalties matter. TO never cared about them, either. He'd rather celebrate for his own cause and hurt his team.

    The point is that there should not be penalties regardless. Using the ball as a prop was/has never been detrimental to the game.

    Doesn't matter if you agree with me on this matter or not, but I stand by what I say when I miss the TD celebrations.

    It doesn't matter if it was detrimental to the game or not. It also doesn't matter if you or I think it should be a penalty or not. The fact is it is a penalty and the players know that. They can't plead ignorance of the rules. Bad rule or not, it is a rule. Players who did their celebrations knowing they would get a flag are selfish. TO was one of the worse offenders. That is not something I miss.
