I know it may seem petty and even unsportsmanlike but I hate it when someone from the opposite team is given a helping hand getting up after a play. I think it takes energy to help someone up from the ground. Energy that could be saved for the later quarters.

i think it was emmitt smith who admitted to laying there and milking it an extra second or 2 to try and get the opposition to lift him up.

I don't have a problem with it at all. That's just good sportsmanship. If they are not in good enough shape to offset giving someone a helping hand, then they need to get in better shape.

I have more of a problem with the Hugging Love Fest that the Steelers engaged with when they played Arizona with Coach Whiz.

So actually helping them up tires them out by not letting them rest up while staying on the ground - brilliant!

I like it when they help each other up, it show they are respectable and they have good sportsmanship.

Ditto. :thumbsup: Well - except for any of the Bungles. I think I'd like to see Farrior extend his hand to help them up and then drop them on their hineys.

lol, that would be funny.

I'm torn here cause it seems like good sportmanship to do it, but at the same time you can't be helping the other team, I think peezy once said something like that and I've never seen him pick up an opposing player.

what is fun to do, is to watch the games where they aren't helping each other up...it happens in games that are slobber knockers with rivals...they walk away from one another and team mates have to help up the down guys...watch the San Diego Oakland game...you won't see hands out for help all game long...

I was going to use Emmitt as an example. I always remember that back in the 90's watching the Cowboys. Here it is they are running the ball down your throat and you are helping him up.:dang:

Sportsmanship or not, let their own teammate help them up.

Let's put it like this, would Lambert had helped them up?? HELL NO!!

Let's just say...there r some who very courteous & sportive, and some r just plain "mean". Romanowski (Broncos, then Raiders) was one we love to hate...!!! :flap:

Precisely.

If you do help someone up it should be after a sack or some other play where you just beat them. Helping someone up after they just whipped you is like saying " No problem dude, could you please keep whipping my ass all day?" Or " Good job man, that whipping you just put on me was a good one. Let me help you up out of respect ."

NOT Steeler football if you ask me.

I heard that a long, long time ago; that helping the other guy up prevented him from getting a little breather, and that's why they do it. Notice NO ONE from your own team EVER does it.

I don't think an extra 4 or 5 seconds is going to make a difference either way.

I wouldn't help anyone up. Think about it, it's typically the ball carrier that is helped to their feet as if they're the only freaking player that hit the turf.

Heck on any given play you'll see an average of 5 or 6 players hit the turf. Should someone go around and help them all to their feet? The whole concept is corny if you ask me. These guys are athletes, they're not your drunk buddy that busted his a$$ as you exited the bar.

i am against helping the other team up.

my pet peeve is when players start dancing around after routine plays. act like you have made a play before. don't dance around like a fruitcake.

here is another pet peeve(i have a lot of them). i hate seeing players smile when they make a horrible mistake like fumbling. kordell did that a lot and i just wanted to reach into the TV set and slap him upside his head.

What are they supposed to do? get mad? throw stuff around?

Watch Ben. he makes a mistake, he laughs about it... stupid me... and then goes out and plays again.

seems to me that a normal reaction to a mistake is disgust, not joy. a player happy/satisfied with mistakes is pathetic. i am glad lambert wasn't smiling when he or his teammates made mistakes.

but i guess smiling and clapping that you fumble is a lot better:dang:
