NFL Considering Taking Away Scores for Taunting
We know when most players score a touchdown or make a great play, they celebrate. The NFL is now considering taking away points from teams where players taunt their opponents.
The most recent case was in Monday night’s game when Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate scored on an 80-yard touchdown and started taunting St.Louis Rams defenders on way to the end zone.
Even though there was an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty assessed on the kickoff, had it been called back the Rams may have won the game, because they ended up losing 14-9.
It’s being tossed around the league office and this could be the end of touchdown celebrations. Wow! Roger Goodell is trying to destroy the fun, again.
