This is like when you worked a territory where it was an automatic DQ for throwing an opponent over the top rope.

Your job is to follow the rule, not debate whether you thought it was fair.

They put the rules in, you follow them. Is it that tough?


Yeah it is there's no sense in following stupid rules.
So because I think a 15 MPH speed limit in front of a preschool is stupid, I should just ignore it and do 45-50MPH through that area?

How about Robbing a bank?  Since they robbed taxpayers, and got away with it, does that mean I should go rob it so they know how the taxpayers feel?

How about the price of that video game system I may want.  I think its stupid its priced as much as it is, should I just ignore the shoplifting rules and steal it?

Difference being that a 15mph limit outside a pre-school is there for safety reasons, the rule against celebration is there because it's the USSRA.

Or when the government told blacks to sit in the back of the bus because they were black or to drink from separate water fountains? Or laws limiting people of certain races from living in some neighborhoods? Just because a law is a law doesn't make it a good law.

Showboating football players are truly the Rosa Parks of our generation.

That's not the point, saying that a rule or law should be followed simply because it's the law makes no sense and would mean that in the long run Rosa Parks and people like her were wrong to do what hey sdid because they dared to disobey the law.

The difference of course is saying players can't showboat isn't a civil rights violation.

These aren't brave activists challenging an unfair law, they're entitled players flouting the rules because they feel that they're above the law. I guarantee a star player like Gray has been given special treatment since the moment it was obvious he could play ball.
