Something like what Tate did I would say yeah take the TD away. He almost ran out of bounds he was so concerned with taunting. I mean where do you draw the line though? Hopefully it's before the TD and not after. I'd hate to see a TD taken away because a guy celebrates in the end zone. Do you count high stepping and that kind of stuff? I don't really mind that I'd stick to just extreme stuff like what Tate did.
Tate will pay for it Dec 29. The Rams will not forget. Taunting goes on all game, every play. waving at a player as you run for a touchdwn, while arguably a douche move, should have no bearing on the outcome of a game. You don't want to be taunted make a play. Simple as that. You dont want to be taunted dont give a player the opportunity to taunt you.
It will be baseball soon where you have entire week long discussions about the political correctness of a player walking the bases after a grand slam.
The game is about entertainment. Taunting, and celebrations do nothing to tarnish the game of football. If anything it makes it more entertaining. You will always have bad guys and good guys. Its a fact of life.
