Excessive Celebration Coming Back to NFL?

The NFL’s competition committee has discussed the league’s celebration  rules during its annual meetings at the scouting combine – a  conversation that’s slated to continue Wednesday during a joint session that includes current and former players as well as representatives from the NFL Players Association

There were 30 so-called “demonstration” penalties in 2016 – up from 29 over the previous two seasons combined and just five in 2013, according  to data compiled by the NFL and obtained by USA TODAY Sports.

At his Super Bowl conference, Goodell laughed at a question about whether the NFL could clarify its celebration rules.
