I get it at the youth and high school level, sorta at the college level, but in the NFL where these are grown-a** men being paid to essentially be modern-day gladiators? Even though I love and much prefer guys like Barry Sanders who just flip the ball to the ref, I'm not a big fan of "taunting" penalties in the NFL...but okay, 15 yards, whatever. But take away a TD? Ridiculous and just flat-out stupid. Which of course means Mama Goodell will seriously consider it.
In 20 years, we're going to be watching the two coaches playing Madden against each other.
Not totally out of the realm of possbility...there already are huge Madden tournaments.
This is an outgrowth of our modern culture where everyone has a "right" to not be offended or get their feelings hurt.
