    Come on man, is the professionalism of the game what draws you to watch it? The elegant way in which players humbly refuse to celebrate any achievements? Emotions are the basis of what makes sports appealing, and the players showing their own is a large part of this. If we eliminated the celebrations and emotional part of sports, we might as well watch robots on the field instead of humans.

    Huh? No it isn't legal. He is using the camera as a prop & that will draw a fine.
    I guess we'll find out. My bet is that it is legal, like TO and the pom-poms.
    When TO did the pom-pom routine, they didn't have the rule in place yet that said players could not use props. It wasn't until after that season that the rule was enacted. If TO gets a fine for pretending the football is a video camera in week 2, what makes you think that Chad Johnson is going to not get fined for this one?
    Exactly. A prop is a prop whether it's a football, cell phone, camera, pom-pom, etc...

    Yeah, it was really depressing watching Bud Grant's teams when the players didn't celebrate after minor accomplishments and TDs.
