NFL might as well let Women play, they are protecting the Quarterback so much because the precious Ladies cant take a hit anymore and now, No Slam Dunking The Ball over the Goal Post! Are you freaking kidding me?
The “Jimmy Graham rule” went into effect for the first time Saturday during the New Orleans Saints‘ scrimmage.
Graham couldn’t resist following up a touchdown pass from quarterback Luke McCown with one of his trademark dunks over the goalpost — a celebration that will be illegal beginning this season.
And since a crew of NFL officials was on hand to call the scrimmage, Graham promptly drew a flag — which promptly drew a chorus of boos from fans in attendance.
It was all in good fun. But unfortunately for Graham, the NFL is indeed serious about banning the TD celebration.
In part because Graham himself has knocked some goalposts ajar in past years, the NFL decided to add slam dunks to the longstanding taunting rule that prohibits using the ball as a prop.
