How can not enjoy seeing this? Especially if youre at the stadium freezing your ass off. It gets the crowd hyped up and builds momentum.

That's the BAD GUY dance I was talking about. Happened right in front of me and the crowd went crazy.

I wasn't freezing though. It was like a nice 72 degrees in there.

Yeah when your body is filled with adrenaline and you gotta get your guys pumped up, why not? It gets the crowd into it and can motivate the other half of the team.

Watch some of those old dances from the 1980's, you going to tell me you don't enjoy that?

Amen. Watching Marion Barber, you'd think he won the lottery and the SB simultaneously everytime he has a run for more than 4 yards.

This stupid displays of showmanship is utterly goofy looking and makes the players look like buffons. I'd like to see the players score a touchdown then either hand the ball to the ref or hand it to the person in charge of holding onto the ball for the player. High fiving is one thing but the shenanigans nowadays is just stupid. Just wondering if I'm alone or not.
Hate seeing the celebrations. And as a Buc fan, it makes me even more angry to see my team's coach/players celebrate and raise the "we're number one" finger when they've only won 2-3 games, and are behind 18-0. Saw that exact thing during the Bucs season.

This is something I despise about football. I hate when a defensive player makes a tackle gets up and starts yelling at no one in particular with this tough guy face.

I'm sorry but you made a tackle, it is your job. It is what you get paid to do. It would like if I jumped up and did a little dance whenever I completed a project at work.

Spoiled idiots with their large contracts playing only for themselves making a fool of themselves performing a silly *** in the endzone after a touch down. That gets the fans excited? Please.....I've about had it with the NFL.
