Year Instituted: 2013
Penalties on touchdown celebrations had been getting more and more harsh throughout the past decade before the NFL decided to essentially ban them from the game altogether this year. If you're wondering why people call pro football the "No Fun League," then this should give you a pretty good idea. Yes, you can make the argument that the antics of players like Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens had been getting a bit out of hand but, at the same time, why not have something that adds a bit of flavor to the game? Is that really so wrong? If the league wants to crack down on the players who go crazy about getting a first down, then they should go for it. But a touchdown? What else is a player supposed to celebrate in football, if not putting up points for his team?
