Celebrating A Goal With Restraint and CLASS IS THE CORRECT WAY TO PLAY THE GAME!
By Paul Lubanski
If it were up to me, I would make it a delay-of-game penalty for the ridiculous en-masse team celebrations post each and every goal scored nowadays. More specifically, the excruciatingly irritating one that has all five players streaming along the bench area slapping high-fives with players, coaches, trainers and managers.
It is unnecessary and energy wasting. And it tends to infuriate and rile the opposition, most especially when the scoring club has to stream directly in front of the opposition's bench to initiate their mini-party.
In case you haven't noticed, at the higher levels, a linesman has to rush over and stand guard in front of the scored-upon team to try and keep peace.
