ASG - commentary: AO over celabrate his goals

hi all

i heard that first time... the commentator said something with mike bossy and ovy and how ovy over celebrate his goals. i cant quite remember the exact words, but definitely the man with no hairs said AO over celebrate goals...that drives me crazy i saw a lot of ovechkins goals and all what he does is screaming and jumping and as a fan i want see that, i dont like players who score with no emotion.


i think we are far awy from a chad johnson/alex ovechkin rule

Well... he used to be a trouble maker when he was doing it against the US. Remember how Canada had to put the taunters in their place.

Until someone celebrates by doing backflips, taking a page from football goal scorers, I wont be impressed.

As long as he doesn't do what Kovalchuk did in the WJC I have no problems with it, in fact its what I like. But seriously, no direct taunting of the other team.

Wasn't there a figure skater who did backflips?
Of course not with full hockey gear on, or hockey skates, but I guess it might be possible...

What the hell is up with all that? How do you celebrate a goal by rubbing your teammate's ass?

Yikes.

Ovechkin celebrates team goals the same as he does his own goals. I wonder when they will start complaining about that?

There's always a fine line to walk.

And there's difference in culture both between different nationalities and between different sports.

There's two sides of the coin.

Fans love to celebrate when their team scores or wins, and they love when the player and/or the team celebrates with them.

But at the same time showboating and 'taunting' the other team and/or fans is regarded as very bad taste.

If a soccer player scored a goal and then just gave his linemates a little hug a maybe a little wave to the supporters he'd be regarded cold and uncaring.

If a hockey player scored a goal and the rushed to wherever the team crowd was and fired off some fancy celebration before getting buried in a pile of teammates it would be ripped as melodramatic and taunting.

Not sure on why the difference is there, they're both team sports, maybe it falls back to hockey being more physical?

Maybe hockey players don't want to trigger their opponents too much, flattening someone into the boards are after all fully legal in hockey.

forunatly in hockey the thickness of the pants and gloves prevents players from fondling each others bums in that manner

As long as he, or anybody else, doesn't do in your face type of crap, I don't have a problem. Hell even a guy like Ray Bourque would do a goal scoring celebration.

I believe Elvis Stojko was the first.

There have been several, but I believe they are banned in actual competition.


In the olympics a few years ago, one of the Russian female figure skaters (I believe Oksana Biul) complained about one of the other figure skaters doing back flips in warm ups and how she was incredibly distracted by it.

The general public's reaction of course was "wait, she can do backflips? That's awesome!"

I have to admit it kind of bugs me. He's obviously a great guy, loves life and all that, but his over-jubilating rubs me the wrong way. What's he going to do when he actually scores a meaningful goal? Pee his pants? I prefer the Joe Sakic approach.

I think its also bc goals in soccer are rarer so each goal is worth more.

Wow we Canadians are so uptight. Do you even have fun playing hockey? I wish hockey players stopped being robots and actually looked like theyre having fun. Maybe if other players loved to score as much as Kovalchuk and Ovechkin do, scoring would go up. Imagine Markus Naslund being happy for once in his life to score a goal instead of frowning his way up Bertuzzis bum.

Celebrations are great--its a GAME after all.

*NB: celebrating in someones face when its truly deserved is great too. Too bad theres too many North American idiots like Dale Hunter who try to make up for being schooled by cross checking after the play.

Skates used in figure skating have toe pikes that allow the skater to dig into the ice and launch into the air. It would be impossible, I think, to make that kind of a jump with hockey skates.
