The No-Fun League

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IOctober 25, 2008

When I say NFL, you may think that I am talking about the National Football League, but I'm thinking more along the lines of the No-Fun League.

I want to know why the players can't do their entertaining celebrations after they work their rear end off to score a touchdown?

Earlier this year, Terrell Owens was fined for doing his best Usain Bolt impression. What's wrong with that?

And of course, who can forget Joe Horn's phone call, and Chad Johnson's signature celebrations?

Now, if the celebrations were vulgar or something, I could see the reason for the rule, but this is just an example of the NFL trying to control the players.

These celebrations are the kind of things that make the NFL what it is; we're talking about the National Football League now, not the No-Fun League.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson got fined $10,000 for playing on a set of bongo drums on the sidelines after a long touchdown run in Kansas City last week. That was because of the rule saying that the players couldn't use any props in their celebrations, and he didn't even hit them that hard.

I could go on but I want to know what you think...
