IF ANYTHING, I actually give a little credit to Sean Taylor for NOT retaliating at all after the bitch slap. He very easily could have gone after him...

Re: The Spitting Ejection

i cant believe that people are defending Taylor. He is innocent until proven guilty, however he didn't even put up much of an arguement when they booted his ass from the game. If he did spit, then he should be kicked out, if he didn't then the ref cant go on what he thought he saw. I didn't see anything on the replay that would suggest he spit on Pittman, but he has been accused of spitting on people in the past. Spitting on someone is the most classless thing a person can do, and w/ taylors past coming into play everytime he does something, he should learn how to better control himself.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Just saw S.Springs on Cold Pizza and he said he will play in Seattle and said he believe that Taylor didn't do what Pittman said he did! That is good enough for me! I also read on another site that Pittman called Taylor a few words that I can't say here! All I know I would not wanted to be Seattle when he lins up this weekend!!! HIT HIT HIT!!!!

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Its not because Pittman said ST spit on him that ST was tossed, it was because the ref saw ST spit that ST was tossed and Pittman's retaliation was not punished. The skins are lucky he's not out for this weeks game.

No excuses for ST, spitting in guy's face is dispicable.
Why? I'd say throwing a punch is worse. Does more damage.

Yeah it was stupid of ST to do that, but it should have been OFF-SETTING penalties.

Actually, I think I saw a little forward thrust on Pittman's part, so maybe they both spit? Maybe Pittman baited him

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Further to the spitting debate: I've consulted some 'hoodie' friends and they all use the tongue compression/gap teeth' method. No head jerk and only a small delivery of spittle.

I'm here to help.

I can not believe you people are taking up for his actions. If anyone from another team spat on a player of ours you would be going nuts calling for their heads. Stop being homers and accept the fact it was a class thing to do, if he did it. The ref that called that game is a very well respected ref in the NFL. I wouldn't have penalized pittman either. Somebody spits in my face, its going to get ugly, REAL UGLY.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

If the spitting on someone is the most classless thing some of you guys can think of then you are completely out of touch. I can think of tons of worse things that could happen on a field. Get some perspective on this guys. You're saying spitting is worse than trying to injure someone. Spitting is worse than berating or attacking an official. Spitting is worse than cheating. Spitting is worse than exposing one's self. Com'on guys and get real. No one can even proved it happened. I have plenty of reason to distrust Mike Carey and the NFL in these things and little to trust really. When a player takes a blatant swing at a guy right in front of your face and you do not call it then you lose all credibility. NO MATTER WHY HE TOOK A SWING. It has to be called.
It is completely lost that the guy supposedly spit on by Taylor is a convicted wife-beater? Not just a wife-beater but a guy who hit and run his wife's car with the wife and kid in it? I am not saying we shouldn't care if Taylor does something like this just because the other guy is a scum bag but don't act like Pittman an innocent guy who Taylor somehow maliciously attacked. He's a jerk and I personally don't care what anyone does to him. I do care if our players are getting kicked out of games and this should not have been ejectable even if he did do it. Spitting. We're arguing over spitting. Please.

Who cares if he is respected or not? Can't he make a mistake? And sorry but it is against the rules to engage in a physical altercation during game. For any reason. Not penalizing a guy is saying well you can't take a swing at a guy unless he really deserves it and then it's all cool. That's BS. You take a swing you get a penalty for any reason. Not just the ones that seem ok at the time. Swing = against the rules. Is it ok to chop block a guy because he said something about your family? Or maybe you could just break a guys finger in a pile up because he pissed you off by using some color racial language. In both these cases the victim had done pretty dispicable things but you don't get the option of retaliating. The rule is there to stop retaliating! I won't even argue whether he spit or not anymore. It doesn't matter. Pittman deserves a penalty there and Carey loses my respect for not calling it both ways. It is a CLEAR missed call so why should we trust the NFL would be honest about it. They are in the publicity game and publicly admitting that "hey our Ref blew that one" is never going to happen. They'll back Carey no matter what he says because they have to. If Carey said Taylor had bent Pittman and had his way with him the league would probably go with that. I have no doubt that Carey THOUGHT Taylor did something but I have no doubt that Mike Carey was wrong and it will never be admitted.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Washpost reports Taylor will receive a fine of $17,000.

End of story.

Everyone go home. Nothing to see here.

Move along people.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

my 2c one more time... the difference between a few hundred players in this league and ST is that ST got caught (or allegedly got caught) doing a bozo no-no. Ref says he saw it, flags ST, ejects ST, and league fines ST. Next time when some hyped up part-time lineman or RB or WR gets in Taylor's face he'll keep his cool and the next pile up he'll sack whack the dude (with a closed fist) when refs are looking the other way. Thus we have the evolution of the badass football player.
