Don't see anyone going nuts.

Do see people saying its corny and immature.

My policy on preplanned dances or other corny celebrations is the same across the board for all players.

Its busch league.

I am all for congratulating team mates, handing the balls to fans, etc. But practicing a lame dance to do when you score is not something a grown man and a professional should be doing. I agree with Barry Sanders, act like you have been there before. Otherwise the rest of us are wondering why is it that big of a deal when you do your job.


I miss the 2005 season when celebrations were popular. Cam would've had a field day playing back then with Smitty.

It was a little flashy but the Supercam is his trademark. Just like when Aaron Rodgers does the touchdown belt.

So you are so shallow that you want you're QBs freedom to be removed because those in the media want to exercise their authority on him for no apparent reason?

You're team must be winning games because your priority for this team is extremely wacked. Instead of being concerned about your team going out and establishing themselves as a legit team, you're more concerned about the media trying to control your QB for no reason. Why to defend his rights when everyone else is allowed to exercise theirs.


End Zone Dancing = an important freedom?

Interesting.

He is 23 years old starting in the most difficult position in pro sports. I am also 23 and do stupid poo all the time. Give the kid, because thats what he is, a friggin break. Give him time to mature.


If you do something stupid at your job does it get corrected?

Even Joe Person said he dug the celebration, I just think Zod is being a square.

Considering my lack of experience I ask more questions than most and take more time to do tasks than most, in an effort to complete my tasks in a thorough and accurate manner I avoid most large scale mistakes. That being said, through effort alone if a mistake is made I am confident my "employer" would more than understand. Unfortunately, my job isn't technically a job..yet. I do think there is an amount of expected growing pains..that is why they have an internship and paid internship program for graduate students entering into my field. People mature differently and at different speeds though talent level may be on par or better than those with experience.

Unfortunately, Cam's paid internship as it were..is his real job.

I think he needs to mature, and those things need to be corrected, but at the same time it cannot be completely unexpected for a 23 year old. IMO.

I know I am in the minority, but I feel Cam's few mistakes (fumble, not hurrying up and failing to run the play before a review flag is thrown) and his corny touchdown celebrations stem from the same thing... immaturity.

Good news is time will most likely fix the issue.


Does Rodgers have the same immaturity with his (celebrated widely enough to get a State Farm parody/endorsement) corny Touchdown dance?

Will he eventually grow out of it?

Once Cam wins a superbowl I may be ok with it.
Hell, once he has had a winning record I may be.

Until then, some humility would go a long way.

So it's immature to do it when your team sucks?

As far as I can tell, humility has never gotten anybody anywhere in sports.

Rodgers did it before he even won the superbowl.....
