Felt, we get it. You love the me first culture as exemplified by guys like Antonio Brown, who finds it imperative to make an ass out of himself whenever he gets the opportunity. Probably the worst example of the me first attitude almost hurting the team was when Santonio did his asinine point during the SB and almost didn't get back to the huddle during the hurry up.
Quite frankly, I was kind of hoping to see Sanders limp away after landing on his tailbone. Didn't want a serious injury, but he's a buffoon playing on a losing team. Maybe there is a correllation, maybe not, but now that many of the team leaders are buffoons like Brown and Sanders, the team stinks.

Well dizz, as usual we will just disagree on this. I think we had a convo back during the gun debate thread where I was painted to be a giant racist by you as well. Better never broach the subject of players getting in off season trouble with you as its all the same...no culture involved.

I don't know how anyone could support Sanders celebration.
#1 - It could have easily caused an injury
#2 - What if he dropped the ball in mid air? That would have been a fumble and it wouldn't have surprised me one bit considering Sanders has a history of dropping the ball (literally).
#3 - You are 0-4. Is that cause for celebration? You scored a TD.... wow, really impressive. That is what you are getting paid to do. It's not like he has been lighting the world on fire with his WR play and that goes for the entire offense.
Last but certainly not least, why not just score the TD and THEN celebrate by doing something with much less risk that doesn't leave an option for a penalty, fumbling or injuring yourself. It's just stupid.
I don't love it but I do ACCEPT it.. that's the difference. All this "almost hurting the team is laughable" and wreaks of jealousy because these guys have talent and have fun from time to time.

Now that we are down this year you guys are hoping Brown and Sanders get injuries... that's crazy.
Is it a good idea to flip into the endzone? Hell no... but will I lose sleep over it or act like it's the reason we are down this year and hope they "learn a lesson" by getting hurt? Certainly not..
bringing up race and then running around acting like you are being accused of racism when confronted about a topic is cowardly. If you don't have the stones to defend your opinions on race then don't go there to begin with...

Get some and get over it.

I was going to chime in on this topic, but Feltz you handled it like a true Champ lol. But all seriousness I don't like the flip because it's calling for injury. But a guy doing normal celebration??? What's wrong with that but I do see it as being jealousy or non athletic members who have never played one down of any sports.
I did chime in, but Feltz took the ball, ran with it, did a flip into the endzone, landed on his feet and finished with a Salsa dance! (all while holding his fist in the air and shouting "black culture")

So let me get this straight... your ok with things as long as they don't have a negative result even if it's bad practice? It's easy to say that because hindsight is 20/20

If he doesn't then you don't. I get it.
I guess the same thing can be said for poor ball security. If our players have poor ball security and they don't fumble 90% of the time then your cool with it up until that 1 fumble that costs us a game... then it's a problem. Wouldn't it make more sense to not play russian roulette and simply cut out the possibility of something bad happening?
Are you ok with stealing because it's ok until you get caught?
Are you ok with cheating because it's ok until you get caught?
I'm not sure I'm following your train of thought.
