    I think the punishment of everyone thinking he's a douchebag and the 15 yard penalty should be enough. The NFL should be more concerned with the overall quality of football this year.

    No Fun League strikes again! This is an awful idea, you can't just start taking away TD's because of taunting. If you give up a big play you deserve to be taunted lol.

    yeah no chance at all the refs wont screw that one up a million times. sarcasm. If this happens get ready for the controversial nullified touchdowns affecting games. Too subjective to give the refs that kind of power. Each ref could have his own view on what taunting is and this could only end horribly. Bad idea all around. Rule of thumb, in my opinion, subjective rules and telling an official to emphasize something usually leads to the officials going way overboard. Was watching the Lakers first game and delay of game is being emphasized which no surprise resulted in many unnecessary warnings. just would not be a smart idea taunting is not hurting anyone just got to have thick skin. Lord knows there is a ton of trash talking going on during the game regardless.

    Could you imagine how sad it would be that this touchdown would be nullified?

    well said.

    way too subjective to take away a TD; they're hard enough to score as it is.

    I love the idea! Reminds me of the old Madden games when you could late hit people. I wish they would have never taken that out of the game.

    This might actually be the worst idea I've ever heard.

    Punishment doesnt fit the crime ... Keep the 15 yard kickoff penalty or even add to that and if thats still not enough - delete their extra point. TD though is a little much.
