I saw it. That was a horseshit penalty. I thought the rule was you couldn't involve other players or use the ball as a prop, neither of which he did. fug Goodell and his PC nation of let's treat every celebration like it's taunting.

Your Patriots*** homerism is showing again.

The penalty was correct. Plain and simple.

Go back and read the rule.

I can't blame Welker..I would have done it too. Snow..football, there will be a snow angel somewhere in the picture. It is not like he built frosty the snow man holding an Arizona Cardinals Suck sign.
But - Rules are rules. I could see Smitty doing that too lol

Smitty did it before (who needs snow)...and that's probably why the rule is there. It was changed that year.

If the rules says no celebrations of any kind than it is different from what I thought it was, has nothing to do with any homerism.

When I saw it it did cross my mind that Welker would get flagged but never realised he actually did.
That is bollocks

The rule also says you can't go to the ground, so technically the flag is correct.

Stupid? Sure. So are the tuck rule and the force out, but them's da rules and ya gotta follow 'em.

(my buddy's kids were highly upset that a snow angel drew a flag)

The only highlight from that game that I enjoyed. The refs hands are tied they had to flag it.
