    No Fun League in full effect. Is there nothing else for these football despots to do other than watch every step T.O. makes?

    It was an innocuous and timely celebration. I thought it was funny.:confused:

    I'm surprised this is the first incident involving TO this season. :eek:

    It really wasn't that bad. It's kind of funny that he did it in a touchdown celebration and it wasn't direct...normally I would expect him to say something in a press conference or something and get in big trouble.

    Goodell is out of control. He's going way overboard trying to be a badass.

    I agree with the ruling and fine, the rule clearly states you can't use the football as a prop during end zone celebrations. It's PROFESSIONAL football folks, not Romper Room. Give clowns like T.O. an inch and they take a mile, making a mockery of the game. He was simply stupid doing what he did, knowing he would get fined. He still can dance and do a million other things to call attention to himself without using the football as a prop.

    Tunescribe, the NFL is just another form of ENTERTAINMENT. If many people find it entertaining, why try to restrict it? I don't know a single sane fan who agrees with all the celebration limits. Its a game, let them celebrate how they want.

    If what TO did offended you, you need to grow up and stop whining about everything.

    It amused me, therefore it cannot be wrong.

    Newsflash: It's SPORTS. It's not a boardroom or a courtroom. People taking sports so seriously is what leads to the sanctimonious responses to the whole "spygate" debacle. I want to be entertained and not lectured about proper decorum for players when I watch football. I refuse to wilt to this downtrodden view of sports.

    You are the one whining, not I. I just said I agree with the rule and its enforcement. The rule was established for a reason, don't you think? Perhaps you might want to consider "growing up" and taking pause to consider such minor details.

    T.O. did not offend me, but he has no right to complain about the rule being enforced. He knew what it was ahead of time and paid a similar penalty last year for using the ball as a "pillow" in the end zone after a score.

    As long as celebrations don't mock/get-in-the-face-of opponents, players should be allowed to dance/do-whatever as long as its short.

    The camera thing was humourous. It adds a bit of entertainment. The fine is ridiculous.

    I think it is stupid to fine him too....the 15 yard penalty was enough punishment. (and it shouldn't be a rule)

    use the football as a prop ok using other props maybe overboard.

    was Chad johnson fined for that jacket he used?

    Had you worn it in the end zone, he would have been.
