Default Keisel celebration a personal foul

I was more upset at the personal foul for excessive celebration that Keisel got than their loss for some damn reason. I have seen him do that same move all year long and was shocked as hell when he was flagged. It had to be a knee jerk response to the school shooting even though he imitated a bow and arrow because he us a hunter, not a shotgun.

I don't think it had anything to do with anything you said, it was that he "went to the ground" by taking a knee in his pose. I'd be livid if that was called on my team. Pure bullshit.

I agree it was a bullshit call, but once again celebrating has made another steeler look like an idiot.

Do it after a WIN.

yea - bullshit call, but - don't they know by now that the officials are going to look for every reason to call them on something, because they are Steelers? They should know that they are more scrutinized than most teams.

i don't like the call either - you see nearly the same exact celebration done by dozens and dozens of players throughout the NFL after a sack.
Clay Mathews anyone??

Keisel has done this all year long, and the officials wait to call it after a 3rd down stop in a playoff elimanation game?

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).

There are many examples of this. I think it was last year Wallace, Brown, or one of those guys jumped on the edge of the first row seats to pose. Excessive celebration was called. Later that day, I saw a Packer do it, I can't remember who it was. No call. Nothing. How about Cruz's 15 second dance? Or backflips? Never called.

Yesterday after a TD Torry Smith jumped up, dunked the ball over the uprights, and hung on the post. They called a "technical." What? That is excessive celebration. Seems dumb.

I am not saying that the refs are against the Steelers. I just want to point out the inconsistency in the application of the rule. It is unethical to apply the rule so haphazardly when things like divisional titles and playoff spots are on the line.

The saying is "Football is a game of inches." I disagree. It is a game of inconsistent and uneven application of confusing rules. And stupidity.

My head will not itch for a long, long time. I have been scratching it all season over the officiating and application of supposed rules.

I think Keisel got caught up in a typically idiotic PR reaction by the league office to the Newtown shootings

Keisel celebrated the sack in his usual manner -- bending to one knee and pretending to shoot a bow and arrow. "They said I can't go to my knees and I can't shoot a weapon,"

http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/...engals-667604/

I would be interested to find out if the refs have been sent a memo to flag any player conduct that involved guns in particular or a weapon in general
