The Lambeau Leap is all fun and games. According to Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings, however, there is far too much fun and far too many games. 

Pro Football Talk (h/t Larry Brown Sports) reports the famous leap into the crowd after a touchdown doesn't come with out its downside. 

Jennings spoke with Erik Kuselias of NBC Sports Radio and issued this warning to would-be Lambeau superstars. 

I try to go away from the men because the men get a little grabby. The women get grabby too but them men it’s like come on, really, seriously?  I’m another guy.

That's just...oh, dear. 

If any of you out there have no clue what a Lambeau Leap is, I feel sorry for you. Here is a video showing the majesty and grandeur that is an athlete becoming part of a rabid, adoring crowd.

As you can see, it's all celebration and rowdy affection. But it comes as a price, as you very well could be violated by some unruly fans hoping to make a perfectly fine Sunday delve into awkward land. 

Jennings continued with thoughts on fellow wide receiver and underrated NFL target, Jordy Nelson. 

I’ve always told him that, I’ve always said that. I think for whatever reason a guy looks across at Jordy, number one, they’re going to think ,‘He’s a white guy he’s not that fast,’ but he has game.  Bottom line he can play.  He can catch the ball, he can make things happen when he gets the ball in his hands.  You’ve got to take him serious, I’ll tell you that, when you line up across from him.

This is pretty much what the star receiver, Nelson, stated last year about himself

Whether there is credence to this or not is inconsequential to this article. 

Really, we just want the over-the-line grabbing to stop. What kind of world do we live in when a Packers player can't go into the stands without the worry of being violated?

Not a very good one at all. Stay classy, Green Bay.
