Stop the Stupid by J.T.
The NFL has made some news lately by mentioning that they are trying to take taunting out of the game. I think this is a great idea especially because fighting is not allowed in the game. People like to put hockey down, but you very rarely see taunting, the reason is you will have someone in your face ready to knock you out. Hockey is the only sport that polices itself, sure you get a five minute penalty but the point was made. And while the NFL is thinking about getting rid of taunting, can we also get rid of the “look at me plays” You know you’re a cornerback and the quarterback overthrows the receiver by 10 yards and you act like you just beat the 72’ Dolphins. Jumping up and down making the incompletion sign, c’mon man. Another stupid thing I cannot stand is when a running back or receiver gets tackled, they throw the ball forward or to the side, hand it to the ref! Please research Larry Fitzgerald he even hands it to the ref after making an amazing catch for a touchdown. Also, to the players who got a first down we all know this! we see the fake line on our tv sets. As Peter Griffin you know what else grinds my gears? the guy who stands up and makes the first down signal while dropping the ball, yeah, I am talking to you Le’Veon Bell! Between the 700 commercials and watching guys gloat over the simplest of plays it is getting harder to enjoy an NFL game. Get rid of the stupid!
