    Just wondering if there is a policy on celebrating before you get in the endzone? i'm not talking about the crazy dives into the endzone but holding B button, to make you either put the ball out or put your fist up as you get in. Got 3 messages mid game saying to stop because it was classless. Of course that made me want to do it more.

    Is this against the league rules?

    I have had this done against me a few times but it didnt really bother me but I can see how someone could take another way. I dont think we have an official rule for it but I think it could be classified as bad sportsmanship if someone takes offense to it.

    I think the dives into the endzone are bad sportsmanship because they are unrealistic, but just holding the ball out or holding your fist up seems on par with NFL players really celebrate.

    I would recommend being a good sport. Winning with class is just as important as being a sore loser. I would be a bit annoyed if you did it to me as well...

    We are all competitors and do not like to lose. When you put your hand up in the air, it is a form of taunting. Even though it seems harmless, it could rub someone the wrong way, and its probably best practice to stay away from it.

    I am not the type to be sensitive to something like that, but in the wrong moment after a frustrating game, I can see someone feeling it is unnecessary

    Doesn't matter either way to me, I care more about post game sportsmanship that scoring celebrations.

    Doesn't matter what team I am, I've been blown out several times and I wouldn't take note of something as small as a celebration. not wanting somebody to celebrate would be considered a sore loser in my book. I been on the receiving end of some ass woopings, and somebody holding their fist up as they go into the endzone would be the least of concerns.

    Is rodger Goodell monitoring this league?

    Try fist raising against Masler, he would pry break his TV and burn your house down.

    Its not like it something I can't stop doing. Had no clue it will cause a stir. Ill leave it alone and just pump my fist in real life if I can make it back into the endzone. Nobody warned me that I was gonna get routed so often lol

    Don't want someone holding the ball out on a breakaway score? You shoulda stopped them at the line of scrimmage brotha man.

    Is there a time that works for you, I'm pretty open the next couple days. Early in the day works best for me, but I can make time.
