NFL loosening celebration rules

CHICAGO (AP) — The NFL wants to put some flair back into celebrations, allowing players to use the football as a prop, celebrate as a group and roll around on the ground again if they choose.

In an e-mail to fans, Commissioner Roger Goodell says the new guidelines are intended to deliver “a more exciting game experience.”

The league will continue to penalize any celebration deemed offensive, including those that embarrass opponents or mimic the use of weapons.
