    Ickey wants to dance.

    NFL | Woods would like to see end zone celebrations
    Thu, 6 Jul 2006 06:24:28 -0700

    Jim Wyatt, of the Tennessean, reports retired Cincinnati Bengals RB Elbert "Ickey" Woods does not like the NFL's new rule prohibiting end zone celebrations. His Ickey Shuffle that became a national sensation in 1988 would be banned by the new rules. "Let the guys have fun, man, that is what it is all about,' said Woods. "When you are a kid playing in little league it is all about having fun, and now they are trying to take the fun out of it."

    It seems to me it would be difficult to "take the fun" out of a multimillion dollar contract given to play a game.

    With that said, I enjoy some of the dances we see. Its entertaining. I just don't like to see the players dancing all over just because they made a tackle or something similar to that. I have no problem with end zone celebrations. I loved the moon over Lambeau.

    Endzone celebrations are fine, but all the other ones are a waste of time.

    As I recall, they did ban the Ickey Shuffle in the end zone and he had to start doing it on the sidelines.

    Found it:

    4.The Ickey Shuffle
    In 1988, the Bengals' Ickey Woods debuted his hulking touchdown dance, in which he heavily shuffled from foot to foot, passing the ball back and forth from hand to hand. The NFL banned the Ickey Shuffle as "unprofessional demonstration," but Ickey kept the Shuffle going on the sideline. Later, he performed it on the courthouse steps after a rape-related lawsuit had been dismissed against him and several other teammates.
