You can add NFL referees to the list of people who would like to see changes made to celebration penalties.

In an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, the head of the NFL Referees Association, Scott Green, said that not even officials enjoy throwing flags for excessive celebration and added the league is putting the referees in a bad position.

It sounds like players, fans and even officials want these rules to either be tweaked or eliminated completely. But if the league is not on board with making changes that would allow players a bit more freedom to express themselves after a big play, then well continue to see flags fly.
