What's it all about?!

Footballers running onto the pitch, eyes heavenward and arms raised, pointing skywards...

Presumably asking for guidance from above?

It looks ridiculous.

I think it's meant to be one of two things:

 

1.  An acknowledgement of/to a God (different religions)

2.  Remembrance of a deceased loved one

 

.....or 3. Lack of creativity.

 

Personally, I don't mind them doing that celebration.  The one that does annoy me more is a stupid made up dance or an attempt at trying to promote themselves via a hand gesture.  Jesse Lingard is a prime example.

If those of different religious denominations point to the heavens (as they entitled to), then someone's going to be disappointed at the end of the game.

Nah, footy is unique in that it transcends all cultural differences including colour, creed, religion and class. . .  as long as your team wins of course!
