Are they getting to a point where...
  • it's too silly?
  • it will start provoking retaliation from the opposition?
  • they are too long?

Or is everyone OK with the Now Fun League?

YES
It's getting obnoxious. Totally ok with a little celebration but these planned out team routines are over the top.

The Eagles this week remind me of Carolina a few years back. Arrogant team displays on the sidelines only to get trounced at the end.

...but if your team did them, then you would be O.K. with them.
What's wrong with a line dance, bowling pins being knocked over, or some other routine?
They're not "arrogant". THAT word is over the top.


You people are nothing more than old fashioned conservative fuddy duddies.
NO - Don't have ANY fun.

I have no issue with them as long as no taunting is involved. I like players being able to express their creative side. It is a painful physical game, let these dudes have a little fun and celebrate success.

I don't think having a rising stage in the end zone from where the players can perform their routines is too far fetched. Choreographers hired by each team will play an increasing role in the NFL's mission to connect with the untapped millennial market. Perhaps some of the more gifted vocalists on each team can even sing a song.

I remember Washington did these group celebrations back in the 80's....these are just recycled celebrations..

I have no problem with celebrations as long as no taunting is involved. And if the opposing team wants them to be stopped....then u gotta stop them from reaching the end zone. But again as long as no taunting or outright disrespect.

Shortest film in NFL archives:

"Johnny Unitas' On-Field Celebrations"



You want to know how to act on a football field?

Watch films of Unitas.

I was listening to the Eagles' shows on radio, and they asked Pederson about it... and he said as long as they get off the field in time for the extra point, which is 40 seconds. And I heard on one of the electric slide dances that the defense did after an interception, they threw the ball back on the field and the refs had to chase it down.'

So - I asked just to see where everyone is with it at this point. I do think at some point, the opinions will turn back in the other direction, and these celebrations will be scaled back a bit.

I do like your rising stage comment... that was pretty good.
