NFL celebrations are coming back…well almost

The NFL is set to relax some of the touchdown celebration rules but will hold off allowing the ever-so-popular twerk.

Commissioner Roger Goodell announced using the ball as a prop (as Antonio Brown perfectly executes in the above picture) and snow angels will be allowed.

Twerking however will be prohibited.  Goodell stated, “Offensive demonstrations, celebrations that are prolonged and delay the game, and those directed at an opponent, will still be penalized.”

Antonio Brown’s celebration above after scoring a touchdown against the Redskins cost him a $24,309 fine and the team a 15 yard penalty.

The NFL frowns upon “unsportsmanlike behavior” and “taunting”.  Hence, the bans were originally put in place to promote good sportsmanship and prevent fights in the end zone.  However, players many times use their celebration to reinforce their identity and please their fans.

Some, such as Dallas Cowboy’s Ezekiel Elliot, have used their celebration to help promote charity.

The NFL, coined the “No Fun League”, will be praised for this move as the sport is viewed by an average 16.5 million people each year who love watching their team make a touchdown.
