I’d like to be in the meetings with the billionaire owners of the NFL and just ask: What is wrong with jumping into a gigantic Salvation Army kettle after a touchdown?
And see if any of them can give me an answer that would change my mind. I doubt it.
Star rookie Ezekiel Elliott was penalized and will be fined for, what, drawing attention to a charity?
I’m sorry, but really? You have a four foot big red bucket in the end zone – what do you think is going to happen?
Why does the NFL try so hard to get rid of the touchdown celebration?
Jason Garrett of the Cowboys made a good point that you can jump into the crowd at Lambeau without being penalized, which I wish he wouldn’t have said because now Roger Goodell – Mr. No Fun himself – is likely trying to ban that.
But the CFL had some of the best celebrations. The Tiger-Cats raiding the boat in Winnipeg, the Stampeder bobsled team, or duck duck goose…
That’s all just good family fun!
Let them have fun, Roger. Stop being a Grinch.
