“Sup, guys? You can call me Uncle Rog. You and me, we’re not so different. I’m down. I’m hip. I’m hip-hop. I’m bad and bourgeoisie. We’re all cool here.”
Ultra cool dad and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is expected to be loosening up on restrictions placed on touchdown celebrations, including the allowance of snow angels, group celebrations, and using the ball as a prop. You heard that right: NFL snow angels are back, baby.
Ironic that that’s an NFL-branded gif yet the celebration has been theoretically outlawed up until this point, right? Oh, NFL. You crazy.
The NFL is expected to make several rule changes as owners and NFL execs meet this week. The focus of the rule changes appears to be allowing more fun in the game, as the league has been mocked as the No Fun League of late.
You’ve got to draw the line somewhere, though. It appears the line has been drawn at miming weapons and twerking, both equally severe offenses.
More celebrations, less Chris Berman, Tim Tebow playing minor league baseball, and a Republican-controlled House and Senate. Dreams really do come true. Quick, someone wake up Aaron Hernandez and tell him the good news.
This is a good start for the NFL, but the rule changes could go further to help make the game fun again. For example, why not allow targeting AND steroids? In fact, both should be encouraged. The video of trainers trying to reattach a wide receiver’s head after it was removed from his body by a juiced-up middle linebacker would get more RTs than a snarky Wendy’s diss. The game is all about the fans, and the fans want violence.
Oh yeah, and outlaw the fucking dab. Thank you..
