I still can't believe Anderson got called for his first pump. NFL league's becoming some greedy bastards that's actually taking the fun right out of this game. Fans should start getting angry.

Personally I'm not cool with not seeing my players be able to celebrate. I'm not cool with limited TD celebrations, whether it's from my team or my opponents. It's what makes this game fun to watch.

It's also the most retarded thing in the world to ask an NFL athelete coming off of 1000% adrenalin overload after a big play to "hold it back some".

They only did this because they know players CAN'T actually do that. It's humanly impossible. It's like making the speed limit 35 on I-95. Everyone will get a ticket.


:lol: Humanely impossible not to celebrate or hold it back some?

In case you all haven't figured it out already, Goodell is all about the money. Big hits lead to injuries. Peyton Manning is injured, right? Colts ticket sales are down 35% this year. He has lost a lot of money with Peyton being out.

He is trying to discourage rough play so his key players aka Quarterbacks, etc are safe. I played football and let me tell you facemasking happens on accident some times. This fine is ridiculous.

Where does the money go? When a player is fined what is the money used for? Is it a bonus for Goddell? Is it put into charity? Does it go to the player who was on the receiving end? I have always been curious where the money goes.

I think is crazy you give a OT a fine for a face mask. LB sure but a OT!!! I guess there will be fines handed out for Faults start next time so we better be prepared.

Bell does not suck. :nono:


He has for the Panthers. They have had to cater the offense to make up for his deficiencies. They aren't doing that for any other o-lineman.

If I'm Cam, I take one look at him and let him know I got this... at the least take up half of it for protecting my blindside.

From what I've read, they go to charity.

I agree with the general consensus that this one is silly.

What law is that?

I've seen plenty of "no bills above $20" signs, does that mean if I flash $100 I get my stuff free? Because I'm skeptical.


That's in a sale. You have the ability to request specific types of legal or non-legal tender as payment for a sale or service. However, when it's a contract that constructs debt, and in this case a fine, the debtor can not refuse legal tender.
