I think you need to separate emotion from grandstanding... Making a first down catch for ten yards in the first quarter is your job, do it and head back to the huddle..... a first down on a major drive later in the game could be considered emotion ( in most cases ) would be tolerated and expected by most fans.

I was at a Steeler bar in downtown Harrisburg, Pa. watching the Jets game and Either Brown or Wallace ( I forget which, no matter ) caught an every Sunday normal pass, They then proceeded to make it into a big deal. This is the crap fans don't like.

I noticed Brown drop the ball and move towards the huddle on a few occasions, but the major emotion he showed was on a big catch after big hit when he crowd was so fired up and electrified it'd be impossible NOT to show some fire.

I will say that santonio's hold and drop of the ball after making a first down is just old, tired, and annoying. It's one thing to celebrate a touchdown, another to celebrate every first down.

"Showing fire and emotion" is a far cry from breaking out some ridiculous and rehearsed dance.

Hines Ward always showed emotion after the play, but he did not go out of his way to make a spectacle out of himself.

There are professionals, and there are showmen. It is kinda like the difference between Polamalu (quiet, humble, and self-confident) and Tim Tebow (over-the-top, self-aggrandizing, grandstanding. shameless advertiser) in my mind.

I am not saying they should ban celebrations, but I prefer that my team show more professionalism, than worrying about coming up with stupid names like "young money" and doing circus sideshows.

Notice, when Tomlin got "fired up", he was not doing some stupid herky-jerky dance and making a fool out of himself in front of America. He was congratulating his guys and praising good play.

I have no problem with dancing if they score a touchdown, and I haven't noticed any dancing after making simple catches. I noticed it once last night, and it wasn't even really a dance. The crowd was jacked, and Brown was feeding off of it. Big deal. I think your entitled to have a little fun, especially when you go into a game knowing your one bad hit away from never moving again.

I hear ya and I can agree with those sentiments.

It is a fine line indeed, one I prefer our guys stay on the classier side of. Notice, Tomlin got fired up too-- but he wasn't doing some silly pantomime that he had to practice in the mirror the night before.

There's a difference between being fiery and making a spectacle. Hines Ward was fiery, but he wasn't a showman. Sanders and Brown are much the same way. Guys like Santonio Holmes are what you are looking for, and he doesn't play here anymore.

Brown's Catch was a big deal because it was 3rd Down and he went over the middle to take a pretty good shot from a Jet Defender to do it. I don't care what you say, it was a big play because it fired up the team and led to icing the game. Sanders' Catch was big because it shifted the momentum of the game in the first half. You're acting like Sanders and Brown were putting on some kind of dancing show after every catch.

This thread is junk whining over nothing to be honest. BAW! No Having Fun!

For the most part, I think most of us are on the same page about this topic.... I agree the players should have some fun!

I watched Ward from his first start to the day he retired. He was the guy who I have watched through all of my prime football-watching days. I cried when he retired. He never did stupid stuff like these endzone dances, except the one time he tried to do the Ickey Shuffle and sucked, so Peezy had to punk him out. Ward's celebrations were spirited and passionate, not contrived and performed. Mosts of the time, all he had to do was smile.

You know some of these guys actually rehearse that crap in front of a mirror so they can pull it off on gameday. That is LAME.

If that's your thing that is cool. I have just never liked braggarts or when people self-advertise.

Reminds me of that old saying (sure I don't have it right): "Great men talk about ideas. Mediocre men talk about acquaintances and current events. And ignorant men talk about themselves."

As for the poor person who played the race card about the initial OP....I think your accusation says alot more about your position than it does about the OP's. Pretty sad, actually.
I'm not a poor person playing a card, and would probably use that classification for you or anyone else who attempts to tell me what to think. I think it was a cheap shot at the young wrs. As I stated earlier, I didn't grow up yesterday. So save that condesending shit for someone else.
