Wow, you can spot all the old-timers in this thread.

As long as everyone's having fun, what's wrong with a little celebration? These guys aren't in the NHL. They're not professionals. They don't have to be like NHL players and act like completely emotionless robots.

I have to say, it's one of the sad realities of hockey that when you do something that pisses people off, it somehow makes them think it's justified to try to hurt you. Do you punch people in the face when they cut you in the line at the supermarket? I mean come on, even when someone's acting like a jerk, that's still no excuse for "retaliation".

No place for **** like that in any sport. It is called sportsmanship, I think you parents failed at raising you.
Isn't that a little too much? It's just a game.

By the way, I thought the blind celebration was awesome.

FiveHole hit it right on the head of the nail...sportsmanship! Which tells me, the coach knows nothing about teaching sportsmanship...what a disgrace!

I love the comment..."Oh, just leave them alone, their just kids having fun!" This is what the problem is with the country. Now one is teaching morality any more.

You see it all of the time. Your at a restaurant and parents are talking and laughing while the kids are climbing the walls and jumping on things, while the parent go on like nothing is happening.

So, as a reasonable adult you try and correct that action in fear that they might step on your food next, the parents look at you like you have just shot their kid in the head.

Normally the response is..."Oh come on, they are just kids having fun and mind your own business, I will raise my kid the way I want them to be raised!" Oh...don't call me asking for bail 10 years from now because you had no clue on how to teach your child what is right and what is wrong.

What happened to some common courtesy for other people?
What happened to opening the car door for your wife or girls friend?
What happened to standing up at the table when a women enters the room?
What happened to disciplining your kids when they are out of control?
What happened to holding open the department store door, to allow other people to walk though before you?

Do you not understand that those things that you do, or don't do, reflex on the family. Or is family not important. If this kid was your child and you were in the stands watch...how would you feel?

Would you give your friend next to you a "high five" and then scream..."way to go Johnny, do it again!" Hoping that next time he rides his stick while holding up the other arm like he is getting ready to rope a steer screaming....yee haw!

I can't tell you how many times I have seen players do this to the other teams, where the other team get so pissed off, that they go into over drive and kick the ever loving Sh** out of the dancing team.

When you dance in front of the other team, it like rubbing their nose in it and guess what...9 times out of 10, you have just given the other team the motive to go out there and destroy you. You might as well have apply gasoline to the fire or salt to the wound!

If you are that kind of player that does the little curling dance, then I recommend that you switch jersey's on the bench with the kid you don't like. You might as well have painted a target on your back.

But for me, I just tell my team to let it be. The way you shut up a crowd and take the wing out of the dancing team, is to put the puck in the net!

Not his fault they couldn't stop them from scoring...

Now if its a pickup game then do it, but if its a league with some respect then don't. My buddies and I do all kinds of stuff but we make sure it won't cross the line of the others. If its okay with the other team then I see no problem in it. People who PAY to PLAY a game should do whatever celebration they want. Some people take it too seriously.

Nothing wrong with a spontaneous celebration, games get emotional and players bust loose. The choreographed crap in those videos displays a lack of maturity, sportsmanship, and coaching.

Yes, people pay to play...and like you said, people take it too seriously! So let me save you some grief. Have you ever seen two parents going at it in the stands? It's generally because little Johnny was rubbing it into the other teams face, and the goalie's Dad, just went over to the Dad screaming..."Do it again Johnny...do it again!"

You are right...people do take it seriously....and so should you.

wait, wait, you telling me I need to take something seriously? Actually, I've seen parents get involded with each other. But that was between two grown ups. I've never seen a kid go up to another kid and punch a kid for "rubbing it in".

Anything can be taken as rubbing it in. So, note to self next time, Don't high-five my teammate, don't say good game at the handshake line, and don't ever, ever, ever have a smile on my face when I'm playing something I love. This is just hilarious that people would get worked up soo much over a celebration.

To me, I see that video as guys having a little fun. But I'm not a coach, I just ply one on TV.

As with many things in life, there is a middle ground.

So, too, in hockey exists a middle ground between being an emotionless robot and THAT.

Fun is encouraged. Fun is good. So, too, are class, decency, grace, and sportsmanship. There are plenty of ways for a person to have fun AND exhibit good sportsmanship doing so. Likewise, there are plenty of ways for a person to exhibit sportsmanship AND have fun while doing so.

Those who are adults should be expected to exhibit such. Those who are children should be expected to exhibit both as well, and where they may be lacking, coaches and parents are expected to teach that.

Somehow, I doubt they asked the other team beforehand and obtained their opponents' consent. In fact, the OP's response pretty much indicated it was specifically for the purpose of showing up and disrespecting their rival.

I agree with headcoach. This kind of behavior is inevitable however as most people nowadays view their children as pets and don't really like being "mean" to them by establishing rules and order. So the little monsters grow up to be selfish egomaniacs just like their parents.

Obviously that's not true of everyone though.

What are you guys talking about "kids" for? There are no kids in that video.

I agree with SJGoalie32 that there is a time of life to act like either an adult or a kid. But there is also an intermediate period where you have one foot in both worlds. You might be a perfectly capable adult as measured by your behavior in a department store, but a kid at the hockey rink... or vice versa. And during that phase, yeah, it's ok to act like every goal is the Stanley Cup winner. Because on an emotional level, they are all pretty exciting.

It's quite possible that this team went over the line in regard to showing up their rivals, but nothing in this thread gives us enough information to pass judgment on that.

these are Juniors, right? then they're kids. yes, they might legally be adults but I don't know too many late teens/early 20's guys who act like adults, especially in a group/team situation. they're not hurting anyone, just acting like jackasses.
would I do something like this? hell no but I'm 41. these guys are what, 21 at the oldest? if what the OP said is true it sounds like this the way it is in this league. don't you think the refs would be handing out Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalties if it was a problem?

There's a difference between celebrating and gloating. Hamming it up like that, with a planned and choreographed display, is gloating. Not cool.

I can assure you, I am courteous off the ice, and usually an all around good guy.

On the ice? Well, I get picked for teams since I can get under other team's skins. If celebrating like that will piss the other team off and make them take penalties, well it will help the team more than hurt it.

That being said, I stick to ice dusting, bow and arrows, and other cellys, don't usually pre-plan celebrations like that.

Unless you're a professional player, that's a ridiculous thing to even cross your mind after scoring a goal.

Immature, but expected. Seems like a joke of a league anyway, so not much harm done.
