The other night during the Giant/Saints football game Saints receiver Joe Horn, upon catching his second touchdown pass of the game, proceeded to make a cell phone call while standing in the end zone. Is this what has become of football. I thought that after the Sharpie incident this type of stupidity was over. Now the league is looking into whether or not they should fine Horn for his "celebration". I think it's sad and ridiculous. I don't watch football to see some jackass dance around after he scores a touchdown or makes a good tackle.
I think that Horn should be fined. And suspended. I also think that they should implement a no excessive celebration rule like in college.
I keep hearing players refer to the game as "entertainment". If I wanted to see someone dance around in their tights I'd go to Radio City.

It's getting to the point where it's unwatchable.

Can you hear me now...continued

PS...Wouldn't it be great if during this weeks game as Joe Horn is coming across the middle to make a catch the free safety lays him out and then stands over him with his hand to his ear pretending to make a call.

hear ye!

I feel that a suspension is absolutly needed,the excessive celebrations are getting out of hand,,,in regards to this last antic,I would not be surprised to see this stunt used in a cel-phone ad in the near future,,,and any fines will be paid by that company,,a suspension with no pay & LARGE fine will be needed to stop this foolishness!! Tightlines,Mark

Stupid thing to do in a team sport. It all depends on who you are or where you're from,Sean Salsbury thought it stupid and an insult to the game but Mike Irving saw nothing wrong with it and even seemed to find it funny. I think it was stupid and Yes he will get a deal with a phone company just like TO got a Sharpie deal. Being a Jackass on TV is worth Big Bucks just look at all the reality shows and the Jessica Simpsons of the world.

to go to show what an arsehole this guy was: the Giants were playing without Collins, without Shockey, and with 3/4 of their starting defense decimated and out with injuries....

they were basically playing a totally depleted team, with a lame duck coach to boot....

that is something to get all worked up about and celebrate?????????????????

where were they all season long when they faced healthy competition???????????

I've played ice hockey for a long time. The key to acting like a good sport is when you score a goal, make it look like you did it before. Excessive celebrating and one-up-man-ship is stupid. T/O was a dick for the Sharpie thing and this guy is even worse.

They should have fined him more than $30,000.
