    Exactly the point. Everyone is on Pac's back for trashtalking Bush, yet our beloved Eddie wasn't too good to trashtalk Ray-Ray a little. It's a part of the game, fun for the fans and an adrenalin pumper for the players, I hate that they decided to make it against the rules.

    I wonder how many penalties Joey Porter will get this year, he was always good for some trash both before and during the games.

    I have absolutely no problem with Pacman did. And, if you were to ask Fish (in confidence of course) he'd probably tell you the same thing.

    You can't take the emotion out of the game.

    If you do, you might as well put the coaches in front of a TV set and a PS2 or Xbox 360.

    Because that's what the NFL is doing if they don't let the players play with an emotional edge.

    The way it was explained was exactly that. Jumping in another players face and jawing. Fisher was running at Pac as soon as it started so he knew it was coming. I think if he stays away from Bush's facemask its not a flag.

    what you seem to be forgetting is that the rules have changed since then.

    Jones knows he runs his mouth to much which is why he has the bet with Fisher. Fisher hopes it will calm him down some. Hopefully Jones will get his mouth in order before he cost us a regular season game

    I'm not forgetting, I just find the rule utterly stupid and therefore have no problem with any of our players breaking it. Just like I have no problem with most of Chad Jackson's celebrations, even if he does get penalized, fined whatever by the No Fun League.

    The only thing I don't condone is taunting or insulting the fans and officials and unacceptable stuff like racial slurs and the like.

    Doesn't matter if you think the rule is stupid or not, it's a rule.
    And breaking it is a 15yd penalty, which can lose a game for you.
    So breaking the stupid rule is even more stupid.

    To you maybe, but if someone doesn't protest against these stupid rules, football will indeed become a realtime chessgame, with no emotions allowed. As another poster pointed out, might as well just simulate the entire league on a computer then.
