Updated May 25, 2018 06:16:22 The NFL is stepping up its enforcement of college football’s NCAA rule against dance moves.
The league said Tuesday it is banning the dance moves of players on its teams.
The move follows a similar move from the NFLPA.
On Wednesday, the NFL agreed to pay $500,000 to the NCAA for an antitrust investigation of the dance move rule.
The NFL and NCAA announced Tuesday that it would ban the dance, and the NFL will continue to work with the NCAA on enforcement.
The new rule applies to the college level.
The rule was proposed by the NCAA, which has been working with the NFL and the league to enforce it.
In a letter to the league’s commissioners, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “This is a matter of great concern for our student-athletes, coaches and parents, and we need to do everything we can to keep the game safe and to prevent this from happening in the future.”
The rule prohibits players from using any motion to perform any move, including, but not limited to, “smooth moves,” “smack” moves and “smoothe” moves.
It also requires the motion to be performed with a neutral foot, hands on hips, feet together, and a shoulder or elbow behind the head.
The dance move ban will apply to all collegiate teams.
