Simple question. Are you for it, against, or just don't really care either way...And why you have this opinion.

Example of taunting: What Reggie Bush did to Urlacher 2 weeks ago.

Example of celebrating: What CJ does in the endzone after he scores

Yes and no I don't really care all that much either way but when a WR like the Chiefs Samie Parker gets one catch a game and starts taunting like it was the greatest play you ever seen I think it is uncalled for you don't have to taunt after you get a first down every time.

Umm...."No" and "Don't really care" are the same answer Sweetness.

I don't like taunting. Celebratitng is okay, but not taunting IMO. Keep it to trash talk. I especially think it's dumb when someone taunts when theyre losing *cough*Reggie Bush*cough*, or when they're ahead by a very large amount (that's just poor sportsmanship).

I think some taunts are in order to happen, like if a opponent taunts you, then you might as well give him some of his own medicine, but a taunt like Reggie Bush's or the infamous Terrell Owens Dallas Star incident are just inexcusable.

Ok next question...And 51 is gonna get pissed at me for this but I don't care.

Was what Hester did in St. Louis taunting? It's a yes or no answer.

Yeah, I saw it now, it was a bit of taunting, the part where he points back with the ball was. The high stepping IMO wasn't, it was just playing the crowd. What makes taunting to me is when you mock a player on the other team. Everything else is just celebrating.

I just thought you'd be tired of hearing about it. But thank you.

I'm just talking about the pointing back thing. The high step wasn't but the other thing was.

And NYmoney, just please stop talking. You made yourself look like a jag in the team forums, so don't do it again, oh wait you already did. :lol:

i think taunting is good for the game, but not too much of it. that fine for reggie bush is over the top by the nfl though.

I'm thinking there needs to be some integrity in the game, the celebration rule is absolutely ridiculous though. I don't really like it when I see a player taunt another as usually players don't forget this thing and it could escalate into something else.

Celebrating isn't that big of a deal to me though but there's a questionable view of it. How about Hines Ward's horrible rendition of the Icky Shuffle? How about TO's Ray Lewis dance? Or Wilfork's Lights Out Dance? Or Merriman leading a crowd to chant "Brady Sucks" and saying "We are going to hit him in the mouth!" right before the AFC Championship game?

My favorite play:

A safety gives up a 30 yard completion, and the safety jacks up the WR, a very very big hit, but the WR holds onto the ball. The safety then is like, "YEAH YEAH YO WHAT UP" and runs around screaming. They just gave up a big completion.

I like taunting, but only on some occasions.


No:


Say Brandon Jacobs runs for 10 yards and a first down.


Yes:

Reggie Bush catches an 88 yard pass along with a nasty move in the NFC Championship game against the best defense in the NFL.

Go Ahead Reggie taunt while losing, oh and yea go ahead taunt one of the most respective players in the league. Pathetic, Reggie made himself look stupid. Urlacher has accomplished way to much for an inconsistent rookie to taunt at him was just childish.

And that merriman comment...Merriman was never egging the crowd on to chant Brady sucks, i was at the game and i dont remember the crowd ever chanting that, and yes he said "were gonna hit them in the mouth" hmm i think ive heard every D say that in the NFL.

I think that's a pretty interesting thing that he did, that was probably the provoktion.

I don't get why people get mad about taunting, especially if they've played the game. What Reggie Bush did, wasn't taunting, it was based on pure adrenaline. I know after coming up from a big sack, I always hop around and bang heads.

I like taunting way more then celebrating because it takes more balls. Chad Johnson's choreographed dances and planned celebrations get a little old.

The ultimate is when you can combine taunting and celebrating, a la Moss mooning.

I love to have fun during games and fun to me is talking crap and taunting

Yup, which is why I felt that Merriman should've been blamed just as much as the players were. There is a difference between pumping up the crowd which is nice and just flat-out disrespecting the opponent. I like trash talk, the little duel between Porter and Stevens was interesting plus it gave another storyline as opposed to "JEROME BETTIS RETIRING IN HIS HOMETOWN!!!!1111oneunoshift111!!!"

When Merriman was cheering the crowd he was more or less just laughing at the roudiness of the extremely drunk collegiate crowd, not going at Brady so much.

Trash talking is fine as long as thats all it is.. As long as the players involved don't get physical i don't see the problem in them geeing each other up. It certainly makes for a much more competitive game
