NFL Cutting down on Gang Signs?

The NFL has hired so called "experts" to watch game footage, to see what players are flashing gang signals to other players. This comes after Paul Pierce was fined $25,000 for flashing a gang signal at the Atlanta Hawks bench during a playoff game.

The league has stated that they have already talked to some players about their use of hand signals, but they will not say who. NFL Players already had to watch a tape on the dangers of gangs, and rookies were counseled on gangs at the rookie symposium.

Many people have already said, including some on Around the Horn, that it is too hard to differentiate between signals used to communicate with players and gang signals.

The NFL is expected to answer these questions soon.
