    The SNL Play 60 spoof with Peyton was comedic genius.

    True.

    OTOH, you can't lose them unless you have them in the first place...

    To get back to the original question, I hate the celebrations such as the flips into the end-zone that could result in an injury or even turn-over of the ball.

    tackles for losses, knock downs on 3rd downs, key stops..

    he does celebrations for more than sacks or game changing plays. this is my point though, while he doesn't do them on every routine play he DOES them.

    Just wondering what the criteria is for a celebration equating to being a me first guy. AB celebrates but I still don't see him as a me first guy. He's probably the hardest worker on this team.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    The only ones that I hate. Other than that I love celebration by my team because I'm probably hooping and hollering with them.

I watch because it gets my adrenaline flowing, I love watching team sports and in some dark place I still wish it was about the football and not entertainment. To me entertainment is a movie, a play, the symphony, a concert, etc and a sporting event should be about the competition and not entertainment. I am entertained by football, but it's the passion, the camaraderie of teammates, the wanting to win and the in game strategies that entertain me, not celebrations, look at me, etc.

    So, as has been stated, I have options, watch the entertainment (since, obviously, it has become less about the game than entertainment) or don't. I still watch, so I don't complain about the "look what I just did" mentality, I may not like it, but I watch and I still hold on to the archaic or romantic belief that the competition is more important than the entertaining, when I lose that I won't watch.

    I'm sorry, but I think it was more celebration back then. It wasn't made such a big deal by the media. Remember the league stepped in and at one point wouldn't let it be no celebration period. Maybe it was late 70's when all this was going on but it was.

    What about the XFL?

    They tried to make it about the theatrics over the football. And no one watched.
