If my doctor completed a successful that cured an illness he or she could do the running man while beatboxing Purple Rain.
Seriously tho..like Wizard said. Its entertainment. People pay for a show...watching robots isnt fun.
Well, I can only speak for myself...I'm a fan that pays to watch professional football. Not a bunch of self-promoting crap. If I wanted to see dancing, I'd tune into "Dancing With the Stars."
But the way things are going, that's about all that the NFL will be before long...no more hitting, just a bunch of grown men gyrating and prancing around...to borrow from a famous Steeler of old, might as well start putting dresses on all of 'em.
Tiger fist pumps after a nice shot
Tennis stars scream like crazy when they swing and fist pump on nice shots
Soccer players flop and do crazy things after goals
Basketball players show out after a dunk
Baseball players clear dugouts when a player hits a HR and shows up the pithcer
I say all this to remind you and others that professional football is a bunch of 20 year olds and a few 30 year olds who play a GAME.
You can always turn it off or turn to CSPAN.
I think it's all about situational celebration. I enjoy the Antonio Brown end zone dance, but I'm not a fan of the commonplace first down ball point and drop. But I do enjoy the crucial first down ball point and drop. Not to say that every first down isn't important, but there are just some that are worth celebrating.
It's a team game. I'd favor team celebrations ....... except I think Goodell's people have made team celebrations an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty (or do I have that wrong?).
Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.
I guess football wasn't entertaining 40 years ago, before anyone was performing pre-planned sack celebrations and doing first down antics?
I understand it's a game. And as I said, I'm not against spontaneous displays of emotion. But I could do without the constant showing off.
Do I expect it to change? Nah. Our whole society is growing more and more "me first." I don't expect football to get better in this regard. But I don't have to like it. Just as you don't have to like all the things the Commissioner or the league decides/does.
So because I dislike one aspect of what's going on in the NFL, I have to turn it off completely or watch something else? Come on.
If you do, hey, by all means enjoy every first down drop and point, etc..
Perhaps in the not-too-distant future, they'll start awarding points to teams for celebrations. I can see it now: Team A nd Team B each score 4 touchdowns and 2 field goals, but Team B wins because they have 5 celebrations points to Team A's 4. (Whoops...I hope Goodell & Co. aren't reading this...)
