    What I love best about it is that afterwards he celebrates with his teammates. Do your own thing but then give it back to the guys who got you there.

    Gronk is a special player and person. That's all there is to it.

    Loved it to death but I'm shocked he didn't get a penalty.

    That's because the refs know he would pick up the flag, wrap it around the ball, and spike it again:rocker:

    There is a very good chance that Ryan Wendell might have Asperger's.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Good-hell told the refs to give the players a little more leeway for celebrating in the end zone while in Europe, to give the fans a little show. He might have even said it to the players...

    At any rate, it was awesome.

    Lol, too good. I've actually wondered sometimes how many NFL players are socially awkward. The stereotypical football player is loud and gregarious, but there has to be at least one aspie in the NFL!

    Typically, I hate to see a player's TD celebration, just hand it to the ref. After watching Gonk's march, I LMAO even after the fourth time I saw it.

    Gronk is lucky that first spike bounced straight up and didn't hit a Rams player, because if it did I'll bet he would've been flagged.

    Usually they'll throw a flag if multiple players are involved in a choreographed celebration, if a celebrating player leaves his feet, or if the player uses a prop. A penalty for what Gronk did - one player going through some strange motions followed by a spike - would be out of the norm even in today's, Roger Goodell NFL.

    Extra emphasis on 'Special' because I love Gronk but the only reason I wouldn't call him a downs kid is because a downs kid is kinda smart in comparison.

    Gronk was flagged against the Jets last year, but the guy he spiked it in front of was the guy covering him. Whether or not Gronk was thinking it, it looked like he was telling that Jets played to eat his shorts. Against the Rams, it looked far more innocuous.
