Looks like Tony Gonzalez got out at the right time indeed.
The NFL says no more dunking over the goalpost. This one I don't understand. Looks like I got out just in time.— Tony Gonzalez (@TonyGonzalez88) March 25, 2014
NFL officiating head Dean Blandino joined Fox Sports Radio's Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday and revealed that officials will now penalize players who dunk the goalpost with the ball following a touchdown.
"We grandfathered in some, the Lambeau Leap and things like that. But dunking will come out," Blandino said. "Using the ball as a prop or any object as a prop, whether that's the goal post, the crossbar, that will come out and that will be a foul next season."
