The NFL’s new rules are taking over the game and it is hurting both the fan base and the ticket ratio. With new changes to the taunting rule and roughing the passer calls, it is leaving players furious and they are not holding back their emotions. Emmanuel Sanders was the most recent to suffer from these horrible rulings. This past Sunday he scored a 44 yard touchdown but was quick to find out that there was a flag on the play for taunting, after he points at the defender he scored on. Later that game he explains how “the league is going soft” after his team loses out on 7 points and costs them the game. Some will argue the NFL is making the game better but, at the same time, can’t you question that it is only making it worse?
