Somebody spits in my face, its going to get ugly, REAL UGLY.
Amen brother.

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.

Could you explain to me how anything that goes on on this site helps the team? I know some people actually believe they are part of the team because they wear gear and yell loudly at games but to think or suggest that anything discussed on this site helps the team is absurd.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

This argument is absolutely rediculous. Someone spits in your face, what do you do. That is one of the most disrespectful things someone can do to you. I didn't say the most ingnorant, I said disrespectful. For someone to try and make it sound ok to spit in someones face is awful. The guy spit, fact. the league fined him for it, and Upshaw didn't argue. That to me says the guy is guilty. Lucky for us, he is still playing against Seattle. They probably should have penalized pittman for the slap, but what difference does it make. He wouldn't have gotten ejected, offsetting penalties. Big deal, Taylor should have used better judgement. He spit on someone for christ sakes, how is that even defendable. there are alot of things that go on during the game that are ignorant, especially at the bottom of piles, but spitting is down right lack of class and respect for fellow opponents.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Point blank... Taylor's earlier TD was the margin of victory in the game. He could have stopped at midfield, taken a crap, picked it up and threw it at Pittman. As long as the fifteen yarder and subsequent ejection did not cost us the game, I wouldn't be as mad at him as some of you are because he spit on a roided out wifebeater.

I'm glad he has no respect for opponents. I don't want to have the nicest safety in the NFL. I want the one that opposing teams are afraid to throw near.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

You guys are killing me. So if Roy Williams came over and spat on Santana Moss, you would look the other way and say well, he is a safety that is ok. You people are absolutely insane to try and convince me its ok to spit on anyone. That is retarded. beating wives, breaking fingers, cheap shots its all wrong. But to spit in someones face is the most irrenhansible thing an athlete can do. Just like betting on baseball is the most frowned upon thing is baseball. Guys get elected to the Hall even though they got arrested 4 times for drugs, or beat their wives, or steal cars, what ever, but Pete Rose, never gets enducted because of betting on baseball. Its one of those cardinal rules. I am in no way comparing the baseball thing to what happened w/ Taylor, but there are just somethings that are just tasteless, and classless and spitting is one of them. Thats is I am done talking about it. You people drink way too much cool-aid when you try and defend someone spitting in the face of another person. Lets see somebody do it to you, your child or I guess something that would hurt the worst, somebody spit on Portis, or Moss and lets see how you react.

Am I reading this right? Are you saying spitting on someone is worse than beating your wife?
