ND fans remember the Purdue guy?

 

The NCAA now has a rule banning these displays as unsportsmen like conduct.

13 specific examples were given

 

Slash of the throat--Resembling a weapon being fired--Bowing at the waist--Punching ones chest--Diving into the end zone unchallanged--High stepping into the end zone--Leaving the back of the end zone.

 

Personally I like the rule. I get tired of all that kind of stuff going on. What ever happened to scoring and just handing the official the ball?

 

It's a team sport isn't it?

I agree 100%..I believe that it just shows good sportsmanship...am anxious to see how it affects some teams this year.

Eh...I guess it's okay. But running out of the back of the endzone! C'mon!! That's a little too picky. If any of you guys have ever scored a touchdown in real football, I'm sure most of you have, it is a pretty big deal. I know the whole thing of, "Act like you've done it before," but what is wrong with punching your teammates in the chest or leaving the back of the endzone. I agree with most of it, because believe me, I hate it when players do dances and spike the ball and high step, but it's okay to just do a little celebration. Oh well, Notre Dame doesn't really have to worry about a rule like this, our players are generally pretty classy.

Murph.

 

Well their are some I ponder over but the rule is the rule and all have to live with it and respect the other team and fans.

 

I admit one or two are a puzzle. Subjective situations. I'm guessing running out of the backfield would be like some players do and jump into the dog pound area with fans? I 'm sure it is individual chest pounding like "I didit" (when it was ten other guys.

 

Football is an emotional sport and I'm sure one or two players are simply going to forget the new rule. I'm forgetting which game it was I think in the final year of davie? (lower case d)

 

The play had just ended and an ND player got bumped and shoved by a member of the other team. Her then shoved back and flags flew. I do not know if there was trash talk? Probably was. Anyway ND could have gotten a nice penalty till our player lost his head. The ND player was sent to the bench for quite a bit. and was being chewed out by some coach. "Do you want to play football or sit on this bench the whole game?"

 

The whole purpose of trash talk, celebrations and all that junk is to make the other teams players lose their cool. If you let them get in your head you are dead.

 

Personaly if the others want to talk trash, Jive and pus GREAT Let's take the flag and avance the team more yards. As Coach Weis said it's a business so thanks for giving us all these yards absolutely free :D :D :D :D

 

Play football 30 days to go :D

I think you have to have some fun and these seam a little excessive. What I hate is when a running back gains 7 yards and a first down and the idiot who tackles him acts like he just saved the game or when a guy scores and his team is still down 3 touchdowns and he parties like it's 1999. Sit down, shut-up your getting your tail handed to ya. That's what I hate. Their kids playing in college. Let them enjoy it a little. Of course when Battle did the chop at F$U I was screaming and laughing my butt off. However, when the little jerk-off from Purdue did his thing on the 99 yard pass play I thought he was a punk. I guess it's all relative.

i dont care for excessive crap... running out of the endzone fine, fist pump fine... when i played high school i would take a knee in the endzone look up, point in the air get up and hand over the ball... of course i played corner and that only happened once on a pick.... little stuff like that i dont have a problem.

:D Weisguy+ I don't know.

 

I think the NCAA thrust is to cool it all down some. Certainly has been too much in the NFL (Making a TD then digging out a cell phone?) and some recent fan/athlete violence at various pro games. I believe NDSP confiscated marshmallo students loved tho throw just to cut down on throwing anything. Then we had the visitors trash our locker room and lifting turf at ND.

 

So I suppose it would be a cautionary warning from the coaches as to on field conduct and don't draw any flags.

 

I do once recal an HS game we played in. We were somewhere on our 30 yard line and this opposing DE comes barreling in and smacks one of our guys before the sanp. Boom we had a flag. They reset and this kid did it again. boom another flag. Now we are advancing downfield free. Boom he did it again another flag. Well, I swear 4 of his teamates start beating him up on the field :D :D :D

 

We didn't care. Ahahaha
