One of the dumbest rules in all of sports is the NFL’s rule on touchdown celebrations. A while ago, the no fun police came out and banned players from celebrating excessively after scoring a touchdown. Since that time NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been big chief no fun by penalizing and fining players when it was deemed they went over the line in celebrating. Well news has recently came out that the NFL and Goodell might be changing its stance on the celebration rule and just might let football be fun again.
Let’s see what Twitter thought of this possible rule change.

I think I can say this in all confidence for the players and the fans that this rule needed to be changed and that it will be a good rule change for the game of football if it does in fact get changed. It's a game. It's supposed to be fun. Let's let the players and fans enjoy it.
