  1. Lemme get this straight…it’s OK to have half the offense perform a scripted and choreographed production in the end zone after a touchdown, but dropping 21 bucks in a Salvation Army kettle is “excessive celebration” and “unsportsmanlike”?

    I get that this clown was mugging for the cameras, but last year he hopped INTO that kettle. You’d think the NFL woulda given him credit for toning it down…

  2. A nuther reason I have no use for the MFL. Professional sports is the toy store of life. It’s entertainment. It’s a show and I’d much rather see a demonstration like this than the crotch-grabbing, End-Zone humping, leg-lifting-dog-peeing, Voo Doo Dancing act on the part of some skeevy-haired savage that we usually see. Don’t put a donation pot on the sidelines if you don’t want them donating – Morons!!

  3. I was thinking ‘why $21?’ – he’s #21.

    I miss Emmitt Smith for the Cowboys – set the record for rushing touchdowns, and after each would just toss the ball to the ref like he belonged in the end zone. That’s class – and owning the end zone.

  4. Yeah, MJA…and I wonder if he was fined last year for climbing into that pot. Seems to me that article should have at least mentioned it. But I never heard anything about him being fined last year, and I’m betting he wasn’t. Which makes this year’s fine that much more ridiculous.

    And I agree with LCD about Emmitt Smith, or any other player that can score a touchdown and not act like a buffoon. At least TRY to act like you’ve been there before.

  5. He also dropped his QB in the kettle after a TD,both gave the Salvation Army 21,000.00 dollars after the game. And he said screw the 13,000.00 fine I don’t care.

  6. That kettle didn’t magically appear on the sidelines….it had to have had league approval, so why do they have their panties in a knot?
