    YOU ARE CORRECT SIR!
    And just to prove their point:

    The NFL reportedly fined Chicago Bears linebacker Cassius Marsh $5,972 for the controversial taunting penalty called against him during Monday night's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    I tuned into the SCORE yesterday and they had on an Ex Head of Officials to talk about taunting. He said the call was ridiculous. It was outside the intent of the rule.

    "Using baiting or taunting acts or words that may engender ill will between teams."

    I kind of think the call was correct given the wording. But he said a look across the field would not should not be considered as taunting.

    I would say no, but the evidence suggests that we are.

    I found it interesting that I changed my position and then the expert came in and threw a monkey wrench into it.

    So I thought I was right, then convinced to change my mind as what is right, then the expert says you were right the first time, but now I don't think so. The expert is wrong.

    I would think at this point, considering the back and forth even you're own mind, you'd come to the realization that it's not at all black and white and either answer (a penalty or no penalty) could be justified, so the initial outrage was a bit over the top.

    But such is the life of a fan I guess.
