By taking a knee, you're telling the other side that you are conceding the play and to stop. It's not any different than a player who takes a knee in the end zone on a kickoff return or a fair catch. I understand Schiano's point of playing to the end but when the opposing side concedes, the right thing to do is acknowledge it. Goodell should fine him for it.
This IS exactly the point. How would Schiano like it if the Giants, with the game already won, did one of those Marino things, faked a kneel down and threw a TD pass. hey, as he said, they play a full 60 minutes of football./ How would something like that go over in his teams locker room?.
I'll bet if he has the privilege of winning any games this year, and his QB takes a knee, I hope
EVERY team they play goes full out to knock his players all over the field. See how they like it.
Maybe what has been lost here is one word. SPORTSMANSHIP. The Giants won, they were just running the remaining time off the clock. What Schiano did was the most classless thing imaginable at that time, and for sure, this will come back to bite him hard and not just from the Giants. Every team out there will take shots at his guys now.
