In respose to the fiasco in detroit (NBA) last week, the NFL will no longer allow players to jump in the stands. If done, it will be a penalty on the kickoff. I don't know how popular this is in Minn. due to the tall walls near the endzone, but it has caught on throughout the NFL over the last 10 years or so. Like it or not, it is at least somewhat fair to say the home fans did enjoy the gesture.

In light of all this, I'll offer the following;

Dear NFL,
Thanks for taking a knee-jerk reaction to a problem that never existed.

Dear NBA,
Thanks for finally taking a reaction to a problem that has allways existed.

Dear Santa,
Please make ESPN stop showing NBA "highlights". It's taking up good commercial time.

Moss has leaped into the crowd from time to time. This doesn't surprise me though, I'm sure soon enough, spiking the ball over the goal post will draw a fine from the Nazi Football Leauge.

I doubt they would eliminate the Lambeau leap from the repertoire of the most overrated team in the league ---> Packers.

The packers were warned Mon. night when D. Driver jumped in the stands. They were penalized later, when Hawthorn jumped in after the fumble return.

Again, thanks for absolutely fuckin' nothing NBA

That Blows.

This is really becoming the no fun league.

Players only do it at their own stadiums, it is not a problem and I can't ever see it that way. It isn't like someone can know where or when a player goes into the stands.

Tags dropped the ball on this one. Or accidentally kicked it out of bounds trying to pick up the fumble or something like that. Anyway they F'd up on this one.

It looked too much like FUN cut it out like a cancer.

I can understand limiting excessive celebrations. A player who starts breakdancing in the middle of the field for sacking the QB or for making the 1st down catch is a bit extreme, but what else do the players have to do. The league has put an end to almost all celebrations, and for a team like Green Bay the Lambeau Leap is a part of the field's mystique. It's a game for crying out loud.
I know that the league is just trying to ensure the safety of it's players and their fans however, in light of everything else they have stopped, this is just a bad move.

Too many players have a "what's in it for me" attitude and the league is just going to increase those numbers. If the players are not allowed to have fun and enjoy the "game" they play they might as well get all they can and get out. Of course, the people who suffer the most as usual are the fans.

Funny you mention that, last week in the Giant/Eagle game Shockey caught a pass for a 1st down and then he was flapping his arms as to mimic T.O. The following day, the sports radio show I listen to was making a big fuss about it as if it was really something major. He didn't go overboard with it, not this time anyway, being overly enthuseastic and ripping your helmet off after catching a pass is a bit much. But still, when players have a certain personality to them, it does make the game more interesting, providing they got some skills. I'm not a Philly fan, but I'll admit that T.O. can be hilarious. I also thought that cell-phone celebration that transpired at New Orleans last year was humorous too.

Shockey did that after the first down cause he probably knew it would be his only chance, full well knowing he would'nt scoe a TD.

Here's the diff. between psyco NBA "playa" & NFL player;

Toss beer on NBA "playa" and be on the recieving end of haymakers.

Spill some beer on NFL player & feel the love.

( I know there's a difference beween toss and spill, but you get my point)

That link isn't working for me, Cajun...

I have been looking on ESPN and SI and can't find any announcement about banning the leaps.

Not doubting you, Eyesoar, but just want a legit link...

Funny how if Shockey mimics somebody, it's a huge deal, but if TO mimics somebody they say it's funny and everybody likes him for it.

The saddest part is that people are mimicing TO at all. He has truely got under people skin. Ignore TO and come up with something new.

TO is an idiot but he is smart enough to have everyone eating out of his hands. Kind of like the useless thread starters!!!!!!!!!! Respond if you want, the best is just to ignore.

They don't know you read it, don't respond.

:bootyshake: Typical reaction by the NFL, thais league is just ridiculous as far as being paranoid about absolutely nothing. First "Nipplegate" and now this. Two things that the American media blew way out of proportion (not so much the latter) so the NFL - or in the case of Nipplegate, every channel that broadcasts a sporting event live - reacts way too harshly. It's just dumb. The fans are the only ones that lose in this one, again.

I guess the Packers will have to go to the Lamboo kneel. Something they need to get used to now that the "glory days" are coming to an end :)

This happened yesterday inthe NoFunLeague

Chump change $5,000

UnBelievable. I like seeing the players giving back to the fans. That is assanine to punish the NFL for the NBA's mishaps. :angryfire:

I like the NBA.

I like the Highlights.

I don't like the KNEEJERK reaction that they are doing. But the truth is that the reason why the NFL doesn't have the problems like the NBA is because they are the no fun league. They nip it in the bud right away.

I like Tags, I like Stern, but Selig can go to h. e. double hockey sticks.

Baseball did nothing and has done nothing. They don't even know they have a problem. They just punish after the fact. No insight or vision. Totally out of touch.

Also, has anyone found anything to substantiate this as a penalty for jumping into the stands. I have been looking all week and haven't found one word on the subject. Also this weekend, I saw players jump in the stand and not get flagged.

4.5% only lager here :drunken:

I always wanted to see what would happen if someone jumped into the fans after a score and the fan just got up and knocked them down and out, :twisted: then after seeing it on the NBA courts I think this should be come more of a fan interactive time :scratch: 15 min of each game no matter what it is :twisted: the fans should be able to take their frustration out on the players :angryfire: kind of like the scene in the movie AIRPORT II where everyone lines up to smack the person sitting in the plane freaking out... :shock:
