NFL Says Not To Celebrate

I just got finished watching the Panthers & Giants game on FOX and Collensworth, one of the announcers, says after one of the last touchdowns that it was okay for the player who got the touchdown to celebrate, but the other players couldn't celebrate with him.

Oh Good Grief!

What is football coming to (or our American society) when we cannot celebrate a small victory?

I understand the reason why, Joe Horn of the Saints last year pulled a cell phone out of his shoe - or something - and pretended to talk on the phone. Terrell Owens pulled out a Sharpe marker and scribbled his name on a football.

These kinds of celebratory acts are ridiculous because they're bringing objects onto the field that have nothing to do with the game of football. Of course the players should be fined. But to remove 'the act' of celebrating is way out of hand.

I think it's absolutely ridiculous to completely remove any kind of celebratory act after a touchdown. It's a touchdown for Christ's sake - a win, a triumph. Oh, but we have to remove our excitement because someone might get offended.

Aren't we all getting too damn sensitive these days?

Oh Good Grief!
