NFL Rules No Goalpost Dunking, But Where Will It Stop?!

Yesterday, a bunch of white, tight asses in cheap looking expensive suits and gilded in skin cancerous tans decided that they didn't like all that "street" behavior those dirty NFL players have been doing recently when celebrating touchdowns, and decided that any said player "dunking" on the endzone goal posts would be called for a penalty. Essentially, using...

Listen man, I get it. The Vikings aren't doing to well this year. It's a sad story and one almost unwatchable. But that doesn't mean EVERYTHING about the Vikings is awful. We still have Adrian Peterson, and he's pretty cool. We once had Chris Kluwe, and I like him. Speaking of leg guys, despite an injured hamstring, kicker Blair Walsh is a pretty sweet bro, too. We...
