After years of the NFL trying to suck the fun out of the game of football, the league is reportedly leaning towards lightening it’s absurd celebration restrictions for the upcoming season.
How they’re going about it though, makes the NFL seem even more lame.
According to a tweet sent out by league executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent, players will have to watch an educational training video that tells them essentially how to celebrate a touchdown.
We’re developing an educational training video for players to show clear examples of appropriate and inappropriate celebrations. pic.twitter.com/3yzBxAaQuk

The league is also looking into a college-style rule where players are ejected immediately after illegal hits. Lovely.
