What NFL Rule do you HATE

After watching Morgan get flagged for 'excessive celebration' I was pretty livid about it!! Why does the nfl take all the fun out the game???

Another one I hate is illegal contact down field which results in an automatic first down!! It's the cheapest penalty ever!!!
all those QB p***y calls. I guess you can sum them up as "Roughing the passer"
PI is pretty ridiculous I think. Maybe if it was a 15 yd penalty, but to give it at the spot of the foul? It's just way too costly, and refs are itching to throw flags as it is.
I like the excessive rule penalty
All of the above?

You like the excessive rule penalty?? It freaking sucks!!
roughing the kicker, I think you should at least be able to tackle him above the waist

I like it too. Act like men, and stop dancing. Dick Butkus wasn't dancing around like some princess when he did something he was supposed to do.
The tuck rule.

Fixed. I hate those and roughing the kicker/punter. I understand why they're in place, but you shouldn't get 15 yards for a punter falling down after someone hits his toe.
the down by contact rule...when RB gets tackled and knee hits the ground, he is down and there cant be a fumble

But if the RB is running open field and dives for the first down without being hit by a defensive player, ball hits the ground and pops out...its a fumble and a live ball

i dont get it...the rule should be the ground cannot cause a fumble no matter what

if he is in the open field why would he dive for a first down, fool should keep running for the TD. In your scenario if the RB does that he deserves for that to be a fumble

The ground cannot cause a fumble, if it just pops out by itself then yes it's a fumble

Running into the kicker/punter.

If the defensive player is making a legitimate play on the block, it should be OK if he misses and runs into the kicker in the process.
