It is 4am, I have proven my point, good night.
NO, I would call for that Cowboy to be kicked off the team.
And yea, we are inferior this season...
but I take the same approach with pro ball as I do with college ball. Redskins are the worst team ever, the evil of all evil, until the bowl games (playoffs). I think the NFC east was the toughest division in football this year, and now it is up to the Redskins and Giants to prove it. Jaksonville doesn't (didn't) belong, among others. And make no mistake, the Cowboys will be back nasty next year!

HOOK EM!

Re: The Spitting Ejection

Sounds bad...

from his teammates' quotes, it sounds like it happened:

"I saw that, and I'm thinking, 'We don't need that right now,' " said Redskins defensive end Phillip Daniels. "He has to realize this is the playoffs."

Not good Sean, especially after i believed you the first time!

Re: The Spitting Ejection

I haven't read the entire thread, but Pittman should have been ejected too. He threw a punch. I love Sean Taylor, but he is a hothead. I think I saw the realization in his eyes that he knows that he did something wrong on the sidelines after the incident...

Matty-

Had there been clear evidence of Taylor popping Pittman with a loogie (a la Romanowski vs. Stokes), I'd be disgusted with him. That doesn't exist. There were HD cameras on the players, and no one has given any evidence of a malicious act. I saw two players jawing - which happens every game - and Pittman hitting. It isn't out of the realm of possibility that Carey threw the flag on Pittman, who claimed spitting as his alibi, and hit Taylor with the penalty.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

I've watch that every way I can and I see "NO SPITTING".
Pittmans a punk and was frustrated with getting knocked in the mouth and cried and lied and his home town Ref threw the flag.

BFD

It will be Shawn Alexander spitting.....OUT HIS TEETH...next week.

Hail Skins

Re: The Spitting Ejection

A flag is NOT proof.

From NFL.com about last year.

" Taylor was investigated last season for spitting at Cincinnati receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh. The NFL carefully reviewed tapes to determine whether Taylor should be fined, but they found no video evidence to support the allegation."

That is totally inexcusable.
I'll be happy to accept your righteous indignation. Just post a message here condemning Michael Irvin and his drug problem, Terry Glenn and his drunk-driving, wife-beating issues, Nate Newton, Leon Lett, and so on...

Bottom line is, none of these guys are perfect human beings. Stop applying higher standards to them, because it's not true of guys on your team any more than it is to guys on ours.

That to me sounds like they are saying they don't need the penalty and ejection, which is absolutely correct and they have a right to be irritated about it.

There is something to be said for a player with a rep for getting into situations like this being baited by other players and/or not getting the benefit of the doubt from the refs. I'm not saying it happened here, but we've seen it in the NFL and even the NBA, where certain players whose checkered past follows them every where they go, get called for things they may not have actually done.

Taylor is probably approaching that status, and it wouldn't surprise me in the least to see more players come after him and try to take advantage of the situation. What the team captains need to do is get him back to the huddle as soon as a play is blown dead and keep him away from any potentially bad situations, if that's what it takes.

I think the Houshmanzadeh quote just about sums Taylor up...

"He's a punk. It's just something he did. That's how he is, so be it."

Re: The Spitting Ejection

As other threads have noticed, Len Pasquarelli is no fan of this team. However, even he says in his wrap-up that Taylor was "ejected in the third quarter for allegedly spitting" on Pittman (emphasis mine). If Pasta is giving Taylor more credit than the members of this site, we all need to take a step back, breathe deeply, and think for a moment.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

I don't have a problem with the ejection, I believe if he actually did it, he should have been. He didn't seem to upset that he was tossed. I do have a problem with no flag being throw for the TB player smacking him upside the head.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

I think it's funny that Cowboy fans are coming here and ragging on Redskin players for their character. That's absurd.

In the heat of a football game, I just don't understand why spitting is an ejectable offense. Does spitting in a guy's face hamper his ability to play the game? No, and yet players are ejected for it. Meanwhile, a guy takes a swing at someone, trying to come up under the facemask to connect with throat and chin, and he's not ejected for it. Doesn't make any sense at all. If the punch connects, it could hurt the other player, preventing him from playing effectively. If spit connects, you wipe it off.

It just doesn't make sense. The punishment needs to fit the crime. It's unsportsmanlike conduct, no doubt. Sean Taylor is a punk, no doubt. But ejecting him is not a fitting punishment when so many other guys are allowed to take swings at each other and get away with a 15-yard penalty.

In my opinion, what Runyan did last week to Salave'a is way worse than what Taylor did to Pittman.

Re: The Spitting Ejection

When the flag was tossed and the ejection announced, you did not see the ten other Redskins on the field at the time going ballistic over a wrong call.

When Taylor went to the sidelines, you did not see Gregg Williams or Joe Gibbs about to burst a blood vessel in the brain as they screeched at the officials.

The incident happened about 20 hours ago and you have not heard Gibbs or Williams - - or even Danny Boy - - stand up behind a microphone and say that the call and the penalty and the ejection were horrendous and that this is an example of poor officiating and that Sean Taylor is being picked on by the refs.

IF HE DIDN'T SPIT, you would have heard/seen all of those things...

Someone asked if there was a rule against spitting. I do not have a current NFL Rule Book here, but from memory I believe that ejection MAY happen for ANY unsportsmanlilke conduct call. And that decision is at the referee's discretion.

The word for the day is:

M E A T H E A D

The ref was THERE!!! He wouldn't just make it up. He has bosses to answer to and Carey is one of the best. He would not have called the penalty if it did not happen. I can't believe some of us are swearing that because we could not see it on our high def TV's that it did not happen. Wrong is wrong and Sean was WRONG!!!
