I was hoping it was more for two reasons, the first one due to what is mentioned above. Players get fined more for uniform violations, and other stupid stuff. And secondly, if it was really high like around $80,000 and not chump-change maybe the fine would actually serve its purpose and make Taylor realize, "Hey I just lost a fancy car right there, maybe I'll think about my actions next time".

These $ fines are of no consequence to any player. The only fine of any consequence to a player would be to take away his playing time. While I'm glad St will be playing I think the only way the NFL (or any league for that matter) to hit a player hard is to yank his PT.

The fine was $17,000; the amount Taylor was to be paid for the game. Taylor has no proved history of spitting. The $20,000 Portis was fined was for multiple offenses (socks, shoes, visor) which he had a history of. If you only want to look at the numbers, go ahead, but there are other things to consider when comparing the fines.
