Jeff Fisher on new NFL Rules: Want to see a dunk, go watch basketball


St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher seems to be a pretty big fan of the newly passed NFL rules, especially the banning of dunking on goal posts.

Walking through an airport, Fisher reportedly heard a security agent talking about the new rule and suggested the NFL stood for the ‘No Fun League’. That didn’t sit well with the veteran coach who informed people that they need to watch a game of basketball if they’re looking to see a dunk.

“I was going through the airport leaving Orlando yesterday, going through security, and this guy was just wearing me out on the ‘No Fun League.’ Are you kidding me? He’s saying, ‘No Fun League! They should be allowed to dunk!’ And I’m like, ‘Then go to a bar and watch a basketball game. This is football,’” Fisher said on Mike & Mike.

While no official reason has been given as to why the league passed the rule, it’s believed the delays caused by altering the levelness of the goal posts is behind the decision.
