      The rules on what is and isn't allowed while celebrating on the football field have always been up for interpretation. While some players are exceedingly good at expressing themselves after a great play, referees will often throw flags almost arbitrarily depending on the who is celebrating and what their celebration consists of. This year, the NFL attempted to combat that, loosening restrictions on rules meant to penalize players putting on a bit of razzle-dazzle.
