Taylor Fined $17,000
 
I was just reading on Fox that Taylor was fined $17,000 the article did not say anything about him being suspended. That is what he was paid for wild card game.

I was expecting much more than $17k. Atleast it's tax deductible.

During one of the previous Redskins' playoff runs - I think it was '91, but don't quote me on that - one of the OL (Tre Johnson I think) got tossed from a game for "improper contact with an official". That's a [B]whole lot [/B] worse than a player spitting on another player!

The OL was suspended from the first game of the next season and not from the next playoff game.

Taylor was never in any real jorpardy of being suspended this weekend for what happened on the field last Saturday - - unless he compounded the matter with some kind of boneheadedness after the game. Fortunately, he did not; he will play.

Not according to some. Apparently spitting on someone is worse than trying to kill them. At least some see to think that.

Wouldn't that be meatheadedness?

You know, I really want to believe this kid that he didn't spit in Pittman's face. It's conceivable that he was "lathered up" in the moment and what came next was unintentional -- maybe, possibly. He would have to be incredibly 'stoopid' to haul off and spit at the guy in front of the ref -- and his judgement is in question.:confused-

But, I want to believe in the guy.

How much has Taylor wasted on fines this year? I wish I had that much extra money just laying around!

Even for hitting an official (albeit inadvertently), Johnson's suspension was for opening game of the next season; he was allowed to play in the Tampa Divisional playoff game the following week. This was in '99.

Taylor is now a punch line. "he is gonna pull a taylor on you" "Oh no here comes a taylor fan cover your face or he will spit on you"

Taylor is stupid. He has ruined his name for a good while. WHo would vote him into the pro bowl if he just acts like a bitch.

10,000?? PTI Just mentioned and I think this is a great point....Porits was fined TWENTY GRAND for wearing the wrong freaking socks, and Taylor is only fined 17G's for this?!?!?! Thats insane.

Exactly. Goes back to my point (posted somewhere else in another thread not too far away) that sportsmanship has always taken a back seat in professional football and always will. These guys, whether they are coaches, players, equipment managers, etc. are paid to win football games... period.
