The NFL has been fining players left and right after celebrations, and now Roger Goodell and the owners are going to allow it again. The players were happy, but Marvin Lewis the man who just drafted Joe Mixon was not happy about the decision.
“I’m not for that at all,” Lewis, who is on the NFL Competition Committee, said of the change, per Katherine Terrell of ESPN. “We had a good standard and the whole standard has always been you want to teach people how to play the game the correct way and go about it the correct way, and that’s not a very good example for young people. The rules were changed for a reason and I thought we had a good outcome,” he said. “Again, this is a team game, and … I don’t understand why we want to give in to individual celebrations.”
Roger Goodell heard what Lewis had to say and doesn’t care what he thinks.
