Loosen up: NFL to allow some flair in celebrations

The NFL owners are meeting in Chicago this week and one of the things they'll be discussing is touchdown celebrations.

Roger Goodell is expected to tell National Football League owners group celebrations, using ball as prop after TDs, going to ground, snow angels are now allowed.

Now the interesting part will be whether owners - a group which skews rather older than players - are willing to go along. "And players have told us they want more freedom to be able to express themselves and celebrate their athletic achievements", NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a message to fans, adding that the changes occurred after conversations with "more than 80 current and former players".

The league will still penalize players for demonstrations that prolong or delay the game, offensive celebrations, and ones directed at an opponent. This year, most of those celebrations would be allowed.

A star who spent his entire 11-year NFL career in relative obscurity playing in Seattle, Kennedy became the second Seahawks player inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012.

Three other games were won in overtime on the final five minutes, games that would be ties this year. That's for the best, both for fans and for players. Instead there will be one mandatory roster cut, going from a 90-man roster to a 53-man roster. He has recorded at least 100 receptions and 1,200 yards in each of the past four seasons. Hopefully with the league's lax rules, Brown can enjoy his end zone celebrations without hurting the team. Last season the league adjusted the rule as well, not requiring the teams to identify the player designated to return in advance.
