Taunting could nullify touchdown next season

NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino said he's "sure" the competition committee will look into instituting a rule similar to the NCAA's. In college, a player flagged for taunting on a play that results in a touchdown nullifies the score -- and it's a 15-yard penalty from the spot of the foul.

Yup 15 yards on the kickoff is good. You should get good field position. A dumb play by one guy should nullify a great play by the other 10.
No doubt Goodell will make the game easier to manipulate without making it look too obvious.
this motherf**ker is killing the game. it really is the no fun league now. no dances, no taunting at all, no hitting unless its in a 1 square foot legal area. ease the f**k up
The Seahawks are screwed.....
On another note. I hate the rule. 15 yards is enough. No more stupid rules to the refs to determine an outcome of a game.
Think the players regret signing the CBA now?

Last season when the NFL signed its new CBA(Collective Bargain Agreement) to end the lockout and save the season. There were a few stipulations that some players voiced there displeasure with but for the good of the game they sat aside there griefs. One such stipulation is that all appeals of fines and suspensions laid out by Roger Goodell will be appealed by none other then Roger Goodell? Not a separate appeals board, but Goodell. So lets get this straight a LB gets fined 30,000$ and suspended for 2 games by Goodell for a hit he feels was illegal. The LB doesn't agree and appeals the suspension and he has to go see the same man who jus suspended him? But players signed off on the deal and its done, even though its crazy.

Refs will take away a gamewinning TD by Kap in the Super Bowl after he Kaepernicks because of this....thanks Seattle
The flow of the game has been compromised with all the penalty calls. Penalties are in a grey area where sometimes they're called and other times they aren't. I'm sure if a ref isn't calling X number of penalties in a season he's downgraded.
I think with Tate's it should not have been a TD since the taunting happened well before he scored. That should have been 15 yards and no TD. If the taunting happens after the TD then it should be on the kickoff but Tate's happened while the play was still going.
I think the rule should be changed. If you commit a taunting penalty before you score, the TD should not count.

I agree. Current penalty is enough. Second taunting could be an ejection.
I don't disagree with it. If the infraction occurs while the play is still live it should nullify the TD IMO. There's no place for that in football. Score the TD and celebrate with your team. No need for taunting anyone in any situation. I'm still in shock that Golden Taint thinks hes accomplished enough and is good enough to throw it someone's face like that. Classless all the way. Glad to see coach Carroll sit him down afterward and set him straight. Hate Carroll but I think he was genuinely disappointed in Taint.
Looks like the Seahawks won't be scoring any touchdowns next year.
