Default Re: Keisel celebration a personal foul

It's not that the rule in and of itself doesn't make sense, but it's been a rule that's been in place since 2006...and Keisel has done this after every sack he makes, for years now, and has never been flagged. I'd be fine with it if there were precedence for it.

I also guarantee you'll never see Tebow called for a penalty when he kneels down and prays after a TD.

I agree with the OP though, somehow this penalty really pissed me off a lot. Probably because I remember hating these same refs from a different game (can't recall which one offhand, but I remember them).
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.  3365
