Penalizing for trash talk??  Dude, it's part of the game.

I'm ok with it.

They're trying to cut down on fights.  It's a business.  They want good football plays, not a circus of fighting and bad press.

So the premise of this thread is the definition of "fun" is "poor sportsmanship, harassing others, and provoking fights"

Trash talking doesn't bother me nearly as much as the knuckleheads who strut and swagger after a meaningless 4 yard pickup.  Before any word nazis ask me to provide specific examples of a meaningless 4 yard reception leading to strutting and/or swaggering, I was speaking in generalities and most people will understand the point I was making.

I would genuinely love penalties like this. "Personal foul, unnecessary celebration, Number 88. Player danced after converting a 1st Down while down 39 points. 15 yard penalty, first down."

^^^ and ^^^

Yes to both posts above. When I see that sort of thing I always wonder if success comes so infrequently for that player that they need to dance around after doing what they are paid to do.

The one kind of trash talking and/or taunting that should always be permitted is pointing at the scoreboard.  There are a lot of times when people like to run their mouth, and pointing at the scoreboard is the only appropriate response.

It's one of the things I dislike about the UFC.  They play up the antics because it gets them short-term ratings, but it makes the whole sport look like a circus and keeps it from reaching its fullest potential, IMO.

Not to sidetrack, but after Chael Sonnen, Conor McGregor, and Colby Covington, Dana White's management style is clear: saying controversial things will get a good fighter the treatment of an elite fighter, and get an elite fighter free rein of the company.

White is a lot more like Vince McMahon than most would like to admit.

Dana White is a lot like McMahon.  He brought the sport a long way, but there's a ceiling to how he handles it.  It lacks legitimacy.

The only difference is UFC doesn't have pre-determined matches.
