Default Touchdown Celebrations

After a 25+ year absence of watching the Dallas Cowboys, I have watched most of their games this year due to character flaw and bad judgement on my part . The one thing that gets under my skin is the elaborate celebrating and showing off after almost every touchdown. They actually have BS rehearsed before the game. When did this BS start. I`m not against any celebrating at all, but this is just nonsense to the 3rd degree. These guy`s act like they just won the Superbowl after every score. It`s pathetic to say the least. What ever happened to players like Emmit Smith who acted like "I`ve been here before" after he scored. Even Michael Irvin couldn`t hold a candle to what goes on now days. I`m done.

I dont watch Football any longer for nonsense like this...even just a tackle. It is all about the coaches. In the prior coaching history, they would not allow this crap. Tell the player to act like it is something they do every day. Thats what happens when everyone gets a trophy. You win the Big Game, then you can dance and celebrate.

You know its just a game right? Games are supposed to be fun. As long as whatever the celebration is does not disparage the opposition, let them have fun & celebrate.

Nothing wrong with being happy. I didn't play, but it does look incredibly hard to score a touchdown. Watching people play whack-a-mole in the salvation army bucket is enjoyable and something I look forward to now on Thanksgiving. "What are they doing to do this year?"

It's not just TD's they celebrate. Ever watch that overpaid Cowboys running back when he makes one of his rare 1st down runs? The other running back, the one that makes all the good yardage runs just goes back to huddle like no big deal. I can see some celebration on good sacks and tackles. Well, sort of.

Some of y'all must be a lot of fun to hang out with...

Those guys were blessed with physical gifts and then put in the work to be able to make a living playing a game that less than 1,700 people in the world get to play. Why not have some fun with it?!

You against bat flips after homers too I assume?

I agree with you. Cee Dee Lamb puts on a show it seems like every time he catches a ball. He will miss 4 in a row and the act like he can walk on water when he catches one. Micah Parsons, Cooper rush and Tony Pollard are the only reason I have watched any FB this year. Dak and Elliot and average players making superstar money. Who can blame them. JJ overpaid for talent.

Man guys, either enjoy life or don’t but don’t judge others for enjoying their moment in time. That moment will never come around again and if I was being paid millions of dollars to catch a piece of pig skin in a great moment I’d probably be trying to do the back spin or moon walk and I can’t do either.

I happen to enjoy any sort of celebration whatsoever and I think the people who don't are sticks in the mud looking for reasons to complain about every little thing.

My favorite is when Zeke jumped into the Salvation Army bowl and popped his head up like a little troll doll.

Yep. Do they encourage fans to boo when they get toasted or steam rolled?

I am not against all celebrations, but when I see a guy crawling across the field like a stripper on stage after a routine tackle, that is getting carried away.

To me, the greatest celebration is to act like you've been there before and you it wasn't anything really special. Makes folks think, "****, they must be a bad ***."

It's not even after every score that they do this nonsense. Intercept the football, they all run to the end zone to mug for the camera. Either penalize them for this nonsense or remove those cameras so they can't do it. Poor sportsmanship all the way around!!

How about the defensive back who acts like he just saved the game when the receiver he was covering didn't catch the pass.....and the pass wasn't anywhere near catchable in the first place.

I’m with Dr.Evil. This running down to the end zone to celebrate is BS. No class, overpaid children. I guess that’s why I watch less and less football.

Do you celebrate when you get a promotion, large bonus, or kill a big buck? ..

It's their literal job to go score a touchdown.

Are they ridiculous? Yes, but if I was on the field and just made an extra 150k or what ever I would be doing the dumbest shart you could think of. Dougie, Tea Party, Pretending the ball is a beer (cracking it open and chugging ending with a spike.) All the old farts watching at home could go kick rocks.

I guess everyone forgot that Emmitt actually got the rules of the game changed because he would rip off his helmet and yell every time he scored...

And Deon doing his little side shuffle and what not. Now that there is no penalty for it, some of them are actually humorous to watch.

The NFL is entertainment. The celebrations are for entertaining. I enjoy the creativity. Yes it is annoying when a team is getting run over and still celebrate a score. If youíre loosing badly itís not time to celebrate. As far as overpaid two things come to mind. First is supply and demand. The demand sets the price and Iíd rather see the players make millions than the billionaires pocket all the money. Second the players put their bodyís and well being on the line. They take all the risk. My oldest son had at least two concussions quarterbacking his high school football team. Many players suffer from long term injuries and severe brain damage. I never understood all the hate. Maybe they donít act like you and I would or would like for them too. They are not you and I but itís doesnít make them wrong.

Used to enjoy watching Earl Campbell just hand the ball to the ref after every touchdown and calmly walk away. He spent a lot of time in that end zone. Just another day at the office. What he got paid to do.

You know what I don't like about the NFL? They didn't stand for the National Anthem but now they promote things for our military and things like they're pro-American. I don't care how many back flips they do or how many passes they catch. Ain't none of them should have a frickin job. Take that money they're getting to play a game and donate it to wounded Veterans and the families of fallen soldiers that they disrespected for however long. Screw them.
