What about that those stupid goal celebrations, where they rip off their shirts, pretend to pick up fake coins, and what not? Isn't that common-place and accepted behavior? Isn't that show-boating?</strong><hr></blockquote>It strikes me as equally moronic behaviour.
And yes, it is unethical, that is, it is not conforming to accepted standards of social or professional behaviour, wherever it happens, but if you, if you pardon the pun, are willing to move the goal posts . . .
Remember, 10 years ago or so, when players scored a touchdown they just turned around, and that was it. Now you just gotta catch a ball, and your whole team jumps on you. It's pathetic.
You score a goal, a point, whatever. So friggin' what? It's not as if you have accomplished anything particularly meaningful now, is it? You are just doing your (most likely vastly) overpaid job. And then, you have to rub your opponent's nose in it. Yeah, sure, cool...
Thankfully, there are plenty of sports persons around who do not deem it necessary to resort to such Neanderthal like antics. All this ME, ME, ME sh*te. Give me a break. [quote]Of course! They're not gaudy American scum!<hr></blockquote>Now where did that come from? :confused:
