I just asked my roommate about this call because he's a football fanatic and the sports editor for the local paper here so I trust his judgement. He said that because the flag was thrown before the whistle was blown and the play hadn't ended, the ref's were right to call back the TD. If the whistle had already been blown and THEN the flag was thrown because he'd been standing over the kid late in the play and perhaps after the touchdown, it would have been enforced on the kickoff. Does this make sense or am I missing out on details somewhere?

I asked for clarification on the main FOOTBALL board. This is what someone posted: I am not sure about the ejection but the CALL is as I thought.

"The rule states that any unsportsmanlike penalty is a dead ball foul. Therefore the touchdown would stand and the penalty would be enforced on the try. The player guilty of the taunting would be ejected. "

Here are my two cents if anybody cares: Taunting is NOT a spot foul. Therefore it does not matter where the ball carrier is at the time of the flag being thrown. You do NOT take 15 yards from the spot of the taunting! The play stands as a TD, you take 15 yards on the kickoff. Yes, you cannot change anything now so its pointless to argue but that is the rule.
