I couldn't agree more. It's all about the game for me.

You should be happy about this though, because that's what Jimmy Graham likes to do.

the NFL is boring anyways. way too many horrible teams and it makes it where there are only maybe 3 decent games per week

I'd say there is more parity in NFL than college football. I still like CFB more for other reasons, but even bad NFL teams are loaded with talent. Even my sad Bills had 4 pro-bowlers on defense last year.

Obviously doesn't watch the NFL. OR doesn't doesn't subscribe to the Red Zone channel.

As for the rule - it's a good idea. Last year Graham almost ripped down the goal posts, the game had to be stopped, the goal posts reset, a ladder brought out and a level used to make sure everything was right.

Funny how they waited until Tony Gonzales retired to do this.

Bingo.

Why some want to bitch about this is beyond me. Cry me a damn river.

If you cared about the sport then this is a non issue.

Who cares. Play football and shut up.

Get rid of the extra point, and make touchdown celebrations mandatory. A panel of judges will score the celebration, and the team will receive 1, 2, or 3 points based on their overall score for the performance. Eh? Who's with me?

Actually a WIN for fun. The Goalpost dunking has gotten old and boring.

It sure wasn't adding anything to the game, either.

No need to make a rule like this, just fine the players if they hang on the goalpost.

They need to act like they been there before. Sanders, Smith , Payton scored and never had to party in the end zone.

Re: No Fun League Strike Again... Goal Post Dunking Illegal
 
Here is why they made the rule....





Here is part of the delay of game that followed Graham's shenanigans...





And that folks is why we can't have nice things.

Agreed!! Good! Glad they are getting rid of that crap.

I can see both sides of the argument...I personally like the endzone celebrations (adds another level of fun) but I go for football, so it shouldn't take away from the game anymore than Goddell already has.
