To juxtapose my feelings on touchdown celebrations with the famous quote by Voltaire, "I do not understand Chad Ochocinco's desire to step-dance after scoring a touchdown, but I'll defend to the death his right to dance his jig."
Look, there are a lot of weird touchdown celebrations out there, but for the most part, the NFL allows them. If Marshawn Lynch wants to make an unnecessary dive into the end zone after making an incredible run, why penalize him?
Football is full of emotion, and fans love seeing their players break the stone-faced mold that they tend to show us during interviews.
College football, on the other hand, is increasing the penalty for touchdown celebrations deemed to be "excessive", which is terribly arbitrary.
If a referee throws a flag after an Indiana running back "celebrates too much" after running for an 80 yard touchdown against Ohio State, the score is wiped off the bored, and Indiana is pushed back 15 yards.
It's ludicrous. Someone explain to me why college football wants to eliminate the joyful celebration of scoring a touchdown?
