I just saw on the NFL network a clarification of the penalty that occurred as Roy Williams made the touchdown where it was thought that Miles Austin's leapfrog of RW was at fault. It turns out that's NOT the case.
The official threw his flag because Sam Hurd came along side RW and also flashed the Hook em Horns sign. Your're going to tell me a player flashing his college symbol after making a touchdown is a penalty????????
They said that because Hurd also flashed the sign while standing next to Williams that made it an orchestrated celebration. Pardon me but that's pure BS! I'm sorry but this is just insanity! What the hell is so excessive about it?? TO running to the star is one thing and I have no problem if he does it in his OWN stadium) but this is nonsense!
When did the NFL get so damned dictatorial? Why is it so terrible for players to show their emotions? I simply don't understand this. NFL football is entertainment as well as a sport. To say that you are going to penalize a player for showing a little emotion after making a touchdown is simply going over the deep end.
Now, having said that, if RW or Hurd had given the finger after scoring, I can understand that but simply flashing your college symbol with another player? C"MON!! The NFL needs to get with it!
