  • NFL New Penalty..

    The NFL has decided to implement the new rule of a player dunking a football over the goalposts will now be a penalty...

    really reallyyyy stupid rule IMO. and of course they wait until Tony Gonzalez to retire to make this a rule..

    but to keep this giants related and here...who do you think is the first Giant to make that mistake...if any can even get that high up haha

        Mike Evans when we draft him baby!!!
        Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

          If this seriously impacts your ability to enjoy a football game, I think you should reconsider calling yourself a fan.

          Doesn't make any difference at all to me if a player can dunk. Pointless celebration crap.

            The rule is dumb.

            Edit: Explain to me the material difference between the Lambeau Leap and dunking the football, other than one involves the fan. Both are excessive and meant to pump up the crowd.

              I guess Jimmy Graham will have another reason to be ticked off. First, the Saints won't pay him like he wants and now the NFL won't let him do his trademark dunk after he scores.

              Sooner or later, the NFL will make dancing in the endzone a penalty and there goes Cruz's salsa dancing.
              One of these teams is not like the others

                He'll ask for that money he missed out on this year from them on the contract for next year- speaking of the money that he should be making as one of the top 5 receiving threats in the league. That TE tag for Graham is a joke.

                  celebrations get the crowd excited and are exciting for players. not everyone can be like Larry Fitz and hands the ball to the ref and runs off. scoring a TD is a huge moment and just dunking the ball shouldnt be a penalty. soon theyll be banning the Lambo leap from games. its not so much such a big thing for people watching from home, but fans screaming right there at the game get pumped up for it and a player is pumped for dunking. its just taking away the fun a player can have from the game, which it seems like is the way their headed after Mara's comments that the NFL will be a game of respect

                    My point is ALL celebratory actions have almost been eliminated, That is ridiculous. That is my right as a fan. As a FAN it also brings excitement and enjoyment, when within realistic means. Your opinion is your own. What's Next ?? Be fined when teammates hug, or high five each other. Your comment is presumptuous.

                      When people think the celebration is more exciting than the TD you have problems.

                        some celebration penalties i understand, like spiking the ball in play because its unnecessary and a delay of the game, the over the top celebrations TO and Chad Johnson had yah i get it, but a simple dunk which wastes no time shouldnt be banned. gotta let the guy celebrate a bit, it accomplishes nothing banning this besides for taking the fun away from the players that do it

                          not once did i say that, after a TD tho people will be pumped and a celebration like that feeds into it and gets the crowd more pumped. nothing wrong with that

                            That's next. What's else ? A 5 yard penalty for high fiving your teammate? Very stupid rule.
