If Malcom Floyd Returns, He Won't Be Able To Dunk on Goal Post

The NFL just passed a new rule that says that players are not allowed to dunk the ball over the goal posts, if they do it will result in a penalty. The league is really cracking down on these celebration rules. How is dunking the football over the goal post going to hurt the game?

Malcom Floyd is one of the Chargers that used to do this  after he scored a touchdown. If he makes his return to the league, he won’t be allowed to dunk the ball over the cross-bar any more. Danario Alexander was another Charger that used to make this happen.

I was really hoping that Danny Woodhead would jump up and slam that football down this season! They are ruining my hopes and dreams of seeing the little man get up and put it down.

Some of these new rules are stupid. Dunking on the goal posts must have been really bad for the future of the game. We wouldn’t want to promote basketball during end zone celebrations in a football game.

    This one is joke . So now it must be considered taunting . Wow !

  • Rob Lambeth

    Dunking over the goalpost is tired as hell. Good riddance.

  • Julien Bélair

    I don’t see it as a big deal. When the play is over be a man and stop acting like it is the first time we do it.
    One the other hand…this is a show! So let fans enjoy the show and bring back celebrations

  • Peter Thompson

    Can players act like they are giving birth to the football, and then cradle it? I think that should be the new celebration this season.

    • Stefanie Smith

      Tapping foot impatiently waiting for Pete to tell us the surprise.

      • Ernie Padaon

        not so sure how patient it is… i can hear your foot tapping from here… haha

      • veazy

        It’s probably a job interview to write about the NFL or the Chargers.

    • Ernie Padaon

      hahahahhahahahahhahahahahaha… amazing!

  • Cgoodness13

    I think its because they plan on extending the posts

  • Eli Rodriguez

    Goodell is ruining the game with these boulshit rules.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Lame, this was probably to piss off Mark Cuban even more by removing the 1 basketball move NFL players could pull off. Well played Commish!

    I just love all the “the world is ending because players can’t do contrived ‘celebrations’” stuff. Does anyone really watch football for the “celebrations?” It’s mostly just annoying “look at me” BS, I’m all for all of it disappearing.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    I was reading B/R’s Top 35 3-4 DE’s Reyes was completely left off the list lol I guess Mike Devito is a better player then Mr. Reyes? Pags really screwed the pooch when it comes to our DE’s, Liuget was #19 or something like that.

    • serg21

      Bleacher reports analyst don’t know what there talking about I think it was last year or two they ranked daren sproles the best running back lol oh and yea they had keenan Allen as the 26th best receiver lol

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        I honestly think they just plain forgot his ass lol

    • Peter Thompson

      But, we should keep him!!! You know.. for continuity, and stuff like that. I heard he saved a kitten last week, so that has to count for something, right? Give this man the keys to the defense, and don’t question it!!!

      • NativeSanDiegan

        May as well give him special teams too, and while you’re at it, quarterbacks coach. hahaha…

    • Trey P

      How did pags mess up Reyes?? We over hyped Reyes im gone always remember the game against theJets that boosted his stats lol

  • RZ

    Can you still do a layup? This is so stupid,WGAF if they dunk the damn football..smh!

  • tubbs45

    Homerun celebration here we come!

  • Peter Thompson

    I don’t get it… it’s not like the players are pretending they are an airplane crashing into the ground in the Jets home stadium after 9-11, or anything?

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    Goodell has to go!!! This is so stupid…what’s next?? No more sack celebrations???

  • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

    They should do the old Triple H hands to the crotch chop…. suck it Goodell!!!

  • Gunnar Martin

    Jimmy Graham will now be half as exciting to watch. I shake my head at you Goodell.

  • JoseSD

    Seems like no one here remembers that it’s Jimmy Graham’s fault. He did it last year, held on to the post too long and tilted it. They had to stop the game just to fix it and get it level. That’s the only reason to stop players from celebrating. As long as there’s no taunting most celebrations are allowed
