Why didn't you join the Soviet Union when you had the chance?  Surely a world where everyone is equal and therefore nobody ever wins any matches is exactly what these rules require.

The original reason the NFL started with excessive celebration penalties is because teams in the 80s started developing entire routines and it was getting ridiculous. Everything the NFL does has a trickle down effect to lower levels of football (college, eventually high school) since it's the most monkey-see, monkey-do sport in America by a large margin. The college and pro versions of the other major sports are barely similar.
