    In honor of the new rule prohibiting most TD celebrations, the most memorable as picked by SI.

    [IMG]

    In the 1980s, The Fun Bunch cooked up one of the most famous group end zone celebrations ever -- a synchronized high five. Washington's team merriment led to the NFL cracking down on "excessive celebration."

    [IMG]

    Woods' NFL career only lasted four seasons due to a major knee injury, but his goofy end zone dance, the "Ickey Shuffle," is everlasting in the minds of sports fans.

    [IMG]

    Being the son of a renowned heavyweight boxer, Norton Jr., a linebacker, commemorated his rare trips to the end zone with a series of blows to the goalpost that would make papa proud.

    [IMG]

    During Atlanta's magical NFC championship season, Jamal Anderson crafted an arm-flapping dance craze dubbed "the Dirty Bird." After Anderson unleashed it, the rest of the Falcons quickly followed suit.

    [IMG]

    TD brought military code into the end zone for the first time when he created the "Mile High Salute," which was directed at fellow teammates and fans.

    [IMG]

    Simple but effective. Green Bay is the only publicly owned NFL team, and its players celebrate their touchdowns accordingly, plunging into the stands behind the end zone.

    [IMG]

    Following a score against the Giants, New Orleans' Joe Horn dug up a phone from under a Superdome goal post and proceeded to call his family. But the NFL fined him $30,000.

    [IMG]

    Never one to be shy when he hits pay dirt, Moss pretended to moon the Packers crowd after a touchdown in Green Bay. Paul Tagliabue and Co. weren't laughing, and fined Moss $10,000.

    [IMG]

    After scoring an opening-drive touchdown, Johnson ran out of the end zone and retrieved this sign from behind a snow drift. The result: A $10,000 fine.

    No Cowboys? Not even Emmitt's helmetless kneel or Deion's dancing?

    My vote for dumbest TD dance goes to that leap frog celebration the Saints used to do.

    yeah, that Saints leap frog thing was really dumb.. I forgot about that one..

    but I cant believe that Deion's dance didnt make it!! that thing was famous!

    but even crazier is that TO didnt make it! are you kidding me? I thought either the star or the sharpie would be on there for sure..

    Yeah, the star thing should have made it.
    But I think they screwed up their website because 10 of 10 only shows an ad, not a TD celebration.
    Maybe it was #10.

    This is horrible. SI act as if the NFL started 5 years ago.

    To me, the best then and the best now is Billy "White Shoes" Johnson.

    How can ya not include that?

    I thought the St. Louis Rams' celebration might be on there. I remember after the NFL cracked down on team celebrations a few years ago Kurt Warner offered to pay for all their fines. They ended up doing it and the collective fine ended up being $100,000 or something outrageous, so they didn't do it again.

    Wasn't it Butch johnson that used to spin the ball on the turf and act like he was shooting at it? I think he called it six shooter or something like that? I liked that one!

    Looks like the Zone could make a better list.

    I guess it doesn't take much to get a job with SI these days.

    I remember the redskins celebration. Was it Too Tall (or maybe Walls?) that went in fists flying against 5 or 6 of them? That was a crazy game.
