    Re: Someone explain the rule please on the taunting penalty

    I think the game was called fair. The taunting was treated the same way in another game I saw a couple years back when the Bears were taunted by Reggie Bush in a playoff game. I thought the fair catch blunder was paid back to us on a bogus call on the She Squaks for running into a receiver that dropped a pass giving us a crucial first down. The reffs did a great job keeping this game under control.

    GO RAMS!!!

    Its one thing to smack talk and another to taunt an opponent. Smack talking goes on in all sports, ands it very rarely heard by the fans, but it is designed to make the opponent lose concentration, whether its fair or not is another issue. There is a line though of what i would consider reasonable smack talk. Taunting is clear as day for fans to see, its unsportsman like and sometimes just seems immature.

    Jenkins had a good game on Monday but he goes for the home run too often and it bites him in the arse. I wish he would have tried more for the pass breakup or tackle rather than the interception, particularly since he had a better chance at the first two IMO. Maybe the taunting can be a teachable moment for him.
