Re: The Spitting Ejection

Right... I guess one of the best refs in the game just had a c-note on the game and was trying to swing the momentum by handing out a phantom penalty and ejection on a boy scout of a guy in Sean Taylor.

Some of you guys are hilarious.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Anyone see the NFL Channel commercial where they made fun of Drew Rosenhaus? Guy with the banjo? What did they say?

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Couple points:
We still do not know 100 percent what happened and if he really did spit, best bet is to ask Pittman.

If Sean Taylor did NOT spit then why was he NOT angry when he left the stadium and after the call. If I truly did not spit on someone and was being kicked out for it, then I would get mad and tell my coachs and be upset, ST seemed niether.

If ST did actually spit, then he made a huge mistake by telling GW he did not. That is an almost Marcus Vick like "fake apology"(publicly lying).

I personally think he did not, but I guess thats my opinion as a Skins fan.

Here's what Pittman said

"There was a lot of trash-talking the whole time," Pittman said. "He spit in my face, no man is going to spit in my face. I have a lot of respect for Sean Taylor, but no respect no more. My initial reaction was, just hit him in the face. He'd be a lot worse if it was on the street."

ooohhhh, so tough. I wonder if he was putting on his Hanes ribbed beefy "wife beater" tank top on as he said that.

The ref was stanging right there... you trust your hi-def over a guy that was standing 1 foot away? You think the ref was just making shit up or was he just out to get ST?

Re: The Spitting Ejection

i'll tell you this: i've given taylor the benefit of the doubt so far... if it is proven that he did indeed spit on pittman, i not only lose respect for his actions, but his word as well.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

There's no way Taylor is getting suspended. That would be foolish. Besides, I'm not convinced it even happened. There should have been a flag thrown on the Bucs' player as well.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Goddamn guys... none of us were there, and he's on my team. I didnt see shit and I was looking for it. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt until I see otherwise. I agree that spitting in the face of a guy is a shitty thing to do, and you should get punished for it.... but if he was just mouthing off and a little spit particle flew from his mouth as he spoke... and he got punched.... and ejected..... and tampa got 15 yards.... and a first down...... thats a little much.

And what about the ref that ejected smith the other week. Smith meant him no more harm than Washington did when he slapped him on the ass... he just wanted to talk to him. These ref's should be full time and paid to referee full time.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

I agree that it couldn't have been a great big loogy because that would have been visible even on normal-def t.v. and having watched the entire incident several times I see no evidence whatsoever.

I suggest there must have been a second spitter. One of Pittman's own teamates or perhaps another official. We're through the looking glass here people...

Matty I'm surprised, you usually keep a pretty level head about this. It's SPIT! Let me ask you, what is worse: spitting on someone, or punching someone?

Both acts are dirty, true. But one is designed to hurt, the other is just disgusting. I guess for me, I just don't understand what the big deal is about being spit on.

And that's assuming that it actually HAPPENED! Since all we saw was a head-bob, it's very likely that ST just called Pittman a PuSSy, or some other very percussive-sounding word that resulted in some inadvertent saliva.

This was not a Romanowski loogie, and anyone who is claiming so is overreacting, just as the ref did. If it was a major spit, it would have shown up on camera. If there was any spit at all, it was small enough to get missed by the cameras.

I'm not so much defending Sean Taylor as I am attacking the refs. In the playoffs, you LET THE PLAYERS PLAY. And who the f*ck wants a bunch of prim and proper p*ssies on their defense anyway? I for one am glad Sean Taylor is rough around the edges, it's part of what makes him so intimidating. If you think that's not an asset to his play, then you're naive. And if you think that spits don't happen all the time, then that's naive too. Especially in the playoffs.

But in the end, who really cares. I highly doubt ST will be suspended, so no harm done. If his public image is damaged, I just don't give a f*ck. He's a great player for my favorite team, and classless or not, that's all that matters to me. But I was brought up here in Philly, so maybe that explains why I feel the way I feel about it.

DON'T OVERREACT. IT'S JUST SPIT! IT DOESN'T HURT!

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Just spit?

So if someone spit in your face would you be able to restrain yourself and laugh it off?? I know if someone spit in my face they'd better turn and run really damn fast.

Whatever man... spitting is widely considered as one of the most disrespectful things you can do to a person.

It's downright dispicable and to steal a line from Sean Salisbury it's BUSH LEAGUE.

There's no room in the game for that sort of behavior. In fact there's no room in life for crap like that.

Just spit?

You've really gotta be kidding me.
