I'm re-watching the Raiders game, and just noticed #90 on the play in which Cam and Tommy Kelly got into it. Bryant, #90, is the guy who actually got the sack on the play. So what did he do for a celebration? He got up, mimicked ripping a heart out of the opponents chest, held the imaginary heart in his hand for a few seconds and opened and closed his fist a few times to simulate that it was still beating, and then threw the heart to the ground.
Is this really legal? How is this different than doing a throat slash or other violent portrayal?
I now see the point many are making about these excessive celebrating that takes place with every personal accomplishments on the field. It is getting a bit out of hand. What's next, a group of players , will start river dancing at the sacking of a QB.
All teams need to save their clebrating for the TDs. That's more than enough celebrating, IMO,
