Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

Anyone else worried that the relatively low fine is just a precursor to a suspension? Or is that completely ruled out and confirmed not to happen? I read that Gene Upshaw had said it's unlikely but are we for sure on that now?

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

it was spit in a game where people are trying to kill you... big deal :P

he'll appeal and might get a lot of the money back.

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

Guys, this happens in every football game. Much worse happens at the bottom of a pile after a fumble. The players, refs, and league know this. What pisses off the refs is when you do it right in front of them. Saturday Taylor learned a lesson the hard way. The good news is that he is learning.

I agree with the fine and him getting kicked out of the game if he did really spit. I've rewound the TIVO a few time and can't see where it happened. Don't you have to throw your head forward a little if you expect to hit someone with your spit? The guy really might just have rabies or something.

Typically yes. Otherwise you dribble on your chin or hit your own shoe. I could've seen that call too- "Unsportsmanlike Conduct #21 defense, dribbling in the direction of an opponent, 15 yds and game ejection". Seriously though, either the post-bitchsmack spit or the spray it when ya say it theories seem to work best for me. Either way Taylor plays next Saturday and the Seattle offense will be equipped with clear plastic face guards.

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

I'm a relatively new poster on these boards so please forgive if my opinion is too wordy. Spitting in someone's face even in the heat of battle is disgraceful conduct. I think the fine should have been more severe (25k-30K) but definitely not a suspension. Michael Pittman is no saint and probably said something that warranted a quick rebuff but nothing he said could have been any vindication to have someone spit in his face. I hate liking Sean Taylor but it's hard not to. During the course of a game I scan the screen for #21. There's not too many players in the entire NFL that I want to know what they did on every play. He is a mega-superstar and if he could play for the Redskins for the next ten years I know we will be perenial playoff contenders but, brother, he has got to take some control over his actions.

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

People, for the last time. The only reason Taylor spit was because he couldn't drop trow and take a leak on Pittman.

We're talking about a guy who tried to run over his wife in his car, for crying out loud. It's not like he spit on Marvin Harrison or something.

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

I "THINK" Sean Taylor said something to [s]pittman.

I saw no spit and ref looking not at ST,. Did he hear something?

Either way...ST was tossed and paid.

CASE CLOSED

If you don't like the fact that ST did something 'disgraceful' perhaps you should have an interest in a different sport, like chess or polo or cricket, maybe chinese checkers. For crying out loud, the co-comeback player of the year Teddy Bruschi has been accused of grabbing a guy's nuts trying to recover a fumble. 'Win at any cost' attitudes are prevalent in a game where hundreds of thousands of dollars are on the line. The NFL is more of a business than a sport. You want sportsmanship watch pee wee games.

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.
But Ray Lewis can get into the ProBowl even after he killed someone?

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

The good thing is that the Pro Bowl is a big popularity contest, so as long as Taylor doesn't pull a gun or spit on a few million voters, he should be fine.

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

i love the skins, but i ain't afraid to say it. Sean Taylor is a piece of s**t. You can add a (hi) or (pi) in there, but either way he ain't my favorite player. Like i said before, i put him in the same category as marcus vick. We've won with him and we've won games without him. If Tampa would of scored on that drive, everyone would be calling for his head. I don't give a crap what pittman does or did, he doesn't play on the team i root for, so screw pittman.

Re: Taylor Fined $17,000

i was expecting 30000+ from the league and 10000+ from the team. They couldn't see it so that is why i think it is so low. Wilbon i guess thinks it should be 100,000 and if you compare it to portis's socks then he is right. 20,000 for socks is rediculous
