Mon, 27 Mar 2006 18:02:51 -0800
Mickey Spagnola, of DallasCowboys.com, reports while no names were mentioned, the NFL competition committee has informed officials to tighten up on taunting and excessive celebrations as a point of emphasis. Touchdowns celebrations shall be confined to the end zone, and no longer will props or the ball being used as a prop in celebration be tolerated. So that means no grabbing of pompons, no Sharpie signings and no cell-phone calls. Spiking the ball, spinning the ball or dunking the ball over the crossbar still will be acceptable. Violations will result in 15-yard personal foul penalties.
