Rule 9-2-1d

Apparently pertains to:

"Any delayed, excessive, prolonged or choreographed act by which a player attempts to focus attention on himself (or themselves)."

Who knew the New Era Pinstripe Steinbrenner Bowl would be so...entertaining. Two mediocre squads playing broomball.

If you missed the end of it, please watch this:

After reviewing the video Jake Locker said he was "unimpressed" and felt the gesture was "a bit vanilla for my taste".

Clearly not that big of a deal but at some point maybe just coach your kids to hand the ball to the ref and then sprint off the field to your sideline gyrate or salute or whatever.

KSU SID forwarded out an email with some Q&A:

What exactly caused the penalty?
"It was the salute, which was the judgment of the calling officials, which were the head linesman and the back judge. Two officials threw the flag, both judged it to be drawing attention to themselves, and that’s what the flag was for."

Were you watching for any celebrations?
"These kinds of excessive celebrations have been a priority in the rulebook for the last several years. There’s a whole page in the rulebook pertaining to sportsmanship."

Honga was a little upset.
