The NFL apparently doesn't have a problem with Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton dabbin' after a touchdown.
The league's official website ranked Newton's touchdown dance second among this week's best celebrations in a segment called "Celebration Station."
Only the end zone flip by Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown ranked ahead of Newton doing his Atlanta-based dance after a 2-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 27-10 victory over the Titans.
The dance sparked mixed reactions, including Newton's teammates defending it and the mother of a 9-year-old being offended.
Carolina coach Ron Rivera reiterated Tuesday what he said Monday, that the "league has changed," during an appearance on the NFL's "Total Access" show.
"I think there is a little bit of showmanship that has kind of come about because you see it happening a lot," Rivera said. "Is it acceptable? I think there is a certain point where after a while it becomes taunting and we have to be careful because there is a fine line.
"I know the league has talked about trying to find ways to allow the players to keep their personality, but at the same time do it in a tasteful, positive manner that isn't taunting."
Rivera also argued that Newton's dance wasn't taunting. He said the only thing wrong with it was "it might have been too long."
"I understand the celebration," he said. "One of the things that he does during the celebration that I think is probably one of the neat things is he takes the ball and he gives it to a worthy fan.
"That's one of the things that we're trying to make sure gets focused in on a little bit more and that is the opportunity to go up there, give the ball to one of our young fans that have come out and watched us play."
