NFL–or No Fun League–Strikes Again! Goal Post Dunk Banned!

Goal Post Dunk Banned: Every year the NFL comes up with new rules. Sometimes the rules are make sense and are good for the game. Other times–not so much.

The owners have been meeting in Orlando, Florida, since Sunday to discuss the state of the NFL as well as some proposed rule changes and bylaws. One of the rules under discussion was whether to ban a popular touchdown celebration or not–the goal post dunk.

Sure enough–this one has passed:

NFL Head of Officials Dean Blandino told @dpshow that dunking the ball over the goal posts will be a penalty next season.

The change came as a surprise to many. Tony Gonzalez did it throughout his lengthy career and it has been one of the more popular celebrations by players over the years–the fails as well as the successful attempts.

So why ban the goal post dunk now? We can thank Jimmy Graham for it. After he dunked a ball over the goal post last season he hung on the cross bar and bent the post. The game had to be delayed a few minutes for league personnel to repair it.

Graham tweeted his response upon hearing the news:

I guess I’ll have to lead the @nfl in penalties next year! #funpolicepic.twitter.com/MQRFXgvaGN

What makes the move surprising is that it was one of the few celebrations that was fun and didn’t show up the opponent. Over the many that have been done over the years the only time a game was delayed was last season. It was probably due more to Graham hanging on the crossbar than the dunk itself anyway.

So the dunk itself did not need to be banned. Hanging on the crossbar did.
