In question has come up that I feel I am correct on but want others opinion. ( I was not at the game but do not buy the expliation)
On a punt return a player took a big hit, a flag was thrown, and the returner ran to the endzone where a TD was signaled. NO whistle was blown prior to the TD. Taunting was announced over the PA from what we have been told.
I say that taunting would not result in a dissallowed TD, it would be enforced on the kickoff. Either the block was ruled illegal or there was another flag/ rule infraction that dissallowed the TD. The taunting call and and WHERE the ball carrier was in relationship to the goal line when the flag was thrown makes no differance (as someone is trying to sell on the MBC board.)
am I right ?[
Well, I'd think that if the taunting occurred before the TD was scored, then the TD would be wiped out. Taunting is usually a post-play, dead ball foul, that's why it gets enforced on the kickoff. In this case it seems the taunting occurred during the play, hence the enforcement from the spot of the foul.
