According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the NFL’s competition committee will consider banning players from leaving the sideline to celebrate with their teammates on the field. Here are the specifics:
The league, at the suggestion of some teams, will give consideration to barring players from leaving the sideline to join on-field celebrations, according to people familiar with the NFL’s inner workings.
“If you’re on the field, fine,” one of those people said. “There would be no changes there. [But] there are some coaches and some clubs who don’t want to have players leaving the bench area to participate.”
Group celebrations have been very popular the last two seasons and it will be interesting to see if there is any objection to this rule from the competition committee. The days of group celebrations could be numbered.
