The NFL may consider voiding touchdowns as part of taunting violations next season. The league could vote for taunting penalties to negate touchdowns scored to by the violating party, according to NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino (via Pro Football Talk). The subject of negating touchdowns came up while Blandino was speaking on NFL Network on Wednesday afternoon.
The aftermath of the Golden Tate taunting penalty during the Seahawks win over the Rams may cause the league's Competition Committee to discuss changes to the rule, per Blandino. Tate and the Seahawks were penalized 15 yards on the kickoff following the touchdown, but the score still counted. If the committee decides to negate the score, it could possibly lead to major consequences for those who fail to show respect to other players.
The Seahawks won the game in Week 8 against the Rams by a score of 14-9. Had the penalty wiped the score off the board and held the Seahawks to a field goal, it would have likely been a different set of circumstances for the rest of the game.
