While at the NFL owners meetings, the league decided to stop yet another harmless celebration method. As of the start of the 2014 season, dunking the football over the crossbars will officially be a penalty.
While I can't remember any Ravens players even attempting to dunk the football (Pitta must not have any 'ups'), it is a common celebration around the NFL. Most notably with sure fire first ballot Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez.
The NFL says no more dunking over the goalpost. This one I don't understand. Looks like I got out just in time.— Tony Gonzalez (@TonyGonzalez88) March 25, 2014
So I go down into history as the last legal NFL goalpost dunker!— Malcolm Smith (@MalcSmitty) March 25, 2014
