Football Question
« on: October 28, 2007, 12:11:25 PM »

I thought that celebrations are to be ruled as 15 yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.  So, if someone spikes the ball after a td, there should be a penalty.   However, I'm not seeing that being called much.  So, is there an exception clause, or is it just not being enforced, or am I understanding it wrong??

The flag is thrown for "excessive" or "prolonged" celebration. Spontaneous display of excitement, like spiking a ball, is OK (unless the spike is directed at a player of the opposing team). Organized group celebration or anything choreographed using foreign objects/props is subject to the penalty. Now, you also cannot celebrate while on the ground. So no more break dancing.

Ahhhhhhhh, okay.  Thanks!

I thought this year they were also going to be coming down harder on spiking celebrations in general.  Was that never made official?

Actually, you're not supposed to use the football as a prop during your celebration (TO using the ball to resemble a video camera) .  With that being said, spiking the football should be a penalty.

Okay, that make sense to why I was thinking spiking was not okay.

Now the problem, it's not being enforced much (at least in the games I watch)....

What's the reason? I really enjoy college sports.

And, spiking the ball at any time is an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in college football. MUCH tighter rules on stuff like that.

But how then will the kiddies learn to imitate their heroes and grow up to be obnoxious wankers on the sportsfield?? Shocked

Either you can use the football as a prop during TD celebration or you can't.  I consider spiking the ball a TD celebration!  It should be a penalty.

I suppose some of it is because my dad didn't watch it much.  I suppose some of it is I don't watch it much, but I don't see the same competitiveness that I can usually see in pro sports, unless it's a major game (like the playoffs).  Or maybe I'm just watching the Air quotes wrong Air quotes season games. Dunno 

Believe it or not, I'm a very aggressive and competitive person when it comes to sports, and I guess I like to see that when watching it, too. 

I'm not saying that there aren't any college athletes that are competitive.  I guess I just don't see enough of it.  On the other hand, I'm not saying all pro athletes are competitive.  Moss is a great player, but he's also a good example of this.  If he didn't want to play, he basically didn't.  There were just some games that he lacked a competitive drive, yet, at the same time, he had tons of it during other games.

Football's only problem is that it has 8.5 billion rules.  It's tough to keep up from one year to the next.

On topic, nothing wrong with a spike.  Scoring a TD is a good thing.  Celebrating should be allowed to some degree.

Although there's no question that Barry Sanders celebrated better than any.  Politely handing the ball to the official rules.
