say...hanging on the goal post for awhile would be nice (just like in college)! Wonder why we don't have cheerleaders after all this time?

How about giving the HC a Gatorade bath after a big win? That could be considered the Giants' "celebratory property" as they invented that back in '86, but everybody that wins big games does that now. If it's a good idea, why not mimic it?

theres really nothing else they can do though with the no fun league rules. id love to see a steeler score a big td and start waving a terrible towel in the end zone. that would really pump up the crowd and be cool to see. didnt thigpen use to do that? i cant remember.

when the NFL made the endzone celebration rules to put an end to all of chad and t.o.'s madness, they threw the packers a bone and said that the "lambeau leap" would not be outlawed.

so not only did they preserve what had become packer history and tradition, you can say the nfl encouraged other players to do it. (now that they cant show their emotion, or express their creativity, or individuality, or whatever it is these clowns like chad think they are doing)

You know I just may be getting old, but what ever happened to acting like you've been there before when you do something positive in sports???

F'ing young punks and thier ESPN highlight reel mentalilty.

I remember laughing at that dueshbag Mark Gasteno (sp?) during a monday night game when the Jets where down bigtime and this idiot gets a sack late in the game (read garbage time) and he goes into his song and dance then one of the opponents walks up to him and simply points at the scoreboard . . . perfect!!!

But now everyone is doing it. Billy 'White Shoes' Johnson was cool because he was original, but from the Ichy shuffle on its like damn people act like you've been there before.

Man that crap drives me nuts.

Just my $.02

I've got a great idea for a new tradition at Heinz Field

1 - No dancing or hyping yourself up when you score a TD
2 - Act like you've been there before
3 - Hand the ball to the ref
4 - Walk off the field

The only exception is when you show the world that certain teams (i.e. the patsies) aren't as great as they think they are!!!

You know, I agree with everything everybody has said about this so far.

My take on this, who cares what happens after the touchdown. Let them celebrate a TD or a sack. As long as there is no little yellow flag laying on the ground afterwards.
