Act Like You Have Been There

October 2, 2013

If you have been in athletics at all, you are more than likely familiar with the statement “act like you have been there before”.  It refers to when you score or when you make a good play you should not taunt the other team.  You go back on defense or move back to the huddle or whatever the game calls for.  In other words, you have done this before; it is no big deal; and you aren’t going to rub it in their face.  The NFL is always trying to cut down on violence in football.   One way would be to severely penalize any sign of taunting.  For example, backing into the end zone after a long run which tells your opponent that they are so slow you can beat them running backwards.  When a tackle makes a good play, instead of getting up and moving to the next play they stand and point fingers in your face or dance around like they have just been stung by a poisoned bee.  One or two plays later in the game someone gets an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty because in retaliation they try to kill an opposing player rather than just tackle him.  They supposedly took away celebrating in the end zone, but I have failed to see any real enforcement of this.  You would think that someone in the multi-million dollar earning range might have a little more sense than to shed all of their dignity and act like their two-year-old sons or daughters throwing a temper tantrum.
