This is getting really bad now


vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said dunking over the goalpost crossbar will be penalized starting in the 2014 season. "We grandfathered in some, the Lambeau Leap and things like that. But dunking will come out," Blandino said. "Using the ball as a prop or any object as a prop, whether that's the goal post, the crossbar, that will come out and that will be a foul next season."


Are you fricken kidding me what is wrong with the dunk, next they will take away the spike and the belt.

The problem with the goalpost dunk is there was a game that was delayed because they had to adjust the level of the goal post.

This is actually one of those celebration penalties that doesn't bother me. Do something that isn't going to require someone to come out with a ladder to fix the shit u broke.

Get rid of the other celebration penalties.

I can understand stopping the goalpost dunk, or more accurately the dunk failure.

it is not as if Sanders did it any better than Jim Taylor, John Brockington, Tony Canadeo, Paul Horning, Johnny Blood McNally or Elijah Pitts plus the dozens and dozens of other Green Bay backs and receivers who showed some class and dignity after they scored a touchdown.

Paul Hornung used to throw the football into the stands after he scored a TD.
The No Fun League didn't like that so they started fining any player who did such a terrible thing $100.00.

I have no problem with the goal post dunk as long as it does not affect the goal post. As far as Graham saying he will lead the NFL in penalties, he's a frickin douchebag. Get a TD, get a 15 yd penalty, which will probably having the other team starting their next drive with excellent field position and odds are real good that they score a TD or FG and negating Grahams TD

Barry Sanders did do it better than anyone else and did so during a period where TV glorified the sport and athletes were beginning the "look at me" boom. Barry simply handed the ball to the referee. Barry didn't go with the trend, he opted to be different, to be better.

I kinda doubt he was serious about that. I don't think he is that stupid and his coaches wouldn't put up with it anyway. Intentionally drawing a 15 yard penalty just to do a dunk. I don't think so.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

So he did the same thing that hundreds of others did before him but because tv he is credited with being something better than they were.

He acted like a man. So did they.

What Barry Sanders did was better than those "hundreds" before him because of the culture of the game. It would be naive to ignore that fact. Speaking of facts, how many of those "hundreds" can you verify that they NEVER spiked the ball in the NFL? Precisely. Wanna Box?

Think Barry did say if he scored a touchdown in the Super Bowl, he would probably have to spike it cuz it might be the last time he's there, lol. I thought that was funny, cuz he played for the Lions. Detroit. Lions.

yes I know about your crush on Barry. He walks on water and his shit doesn't stink and all of that stuff. Try as you may he is not special just because of the intrusion of the tv sent others into a crazy mode.

Barry did exactly what we tell our children every day of their young lives, "Don't give in to pear pressure". He listened the other children did not. He gets a gold star. Woohoo.

What does fruit got to do with this?


Anyhow, when I played I never spiked the ball either. I hadn't noticed this until Nick (friend who passed away one year ago yesterday) came up to me and excitedly yelled "dammit kev, quit this barry crap and spike that damn ball!!". I played QB and S so when I scored was when I had to run it in, or got a pick six. I was so eager to get on defense and get the ball back so I could lead our offense to another score I didn't feel the 20 seconds or whatever it took to chase down the spiked ball was worth it.

The feeling I had that I was unconsciously emulating my idol was surreal. And having one of my best friends pointing it out in front of everyone made it that much more special. Guess that probably sounds silly.
