Mike Tomlin’s anti-celebration stance is surprising

Tomlin gave two reasons he doesn’t like celebrations, something his team does more than anyone.

I agree with Tomlin on this.  The celebrations are stupid.  They may not take away from the game for fans, but for the teams, they are ridiculous.  

 

These “celebrations” are choreographed.  The players don’t make them up on the spot anymore so they come off contrived.  They aren’t spontaneous so you know they practiced them sometime leading up to game day.  Didn’t they have better things to do during the prep week like film study?! 

 

My main beef is how juvenile the celebrations are.  Grown men, alleged gladiators of the modern era, acting like high school kids making the equivalent of on field memes.  

 

This is PRO football.  Professional athletes play pro football.  Yes, it is still a game but It’s become a joke.  The league deserves better from the players.  Act like pros.
