You Make the Call, Acceptable or Over the Line?

Around the web today there were many sports shooters who took exception to a photographer who reached out and touched the Vince Lombardi trophy as it was being presented to the New York Giants.  It happens at 0:56 in this video.  Was this inappropriate for a photojournalist covering the event, or was it an acceptable moment?  You make the call in the comments below.

I think there are two issues here. I see nothing "wrong" with touching the trophy. It however is not professional behaviour for a photojournalist.
