Re: Sean Taylor Spitting Video

The ref made the correct call and got it right when he said to the skins player. What would have you done if someone spit in your face? I do not remember who he said that to but they just turned away as if to say to the ref your right.

Just curious, if the roles were reversed, if Pittman spit at Taylor, would you have the same exact opinion of the incident?? I'm sure you'll say yes for the sake of supporting your "unemotional views", but I'm inclined to think you wouldn't have the same view.
Then you're inclined to be wrong, and from what I've seen you're inclined to be a judgmental person. You obviously are letting your disgust and respect dictate how you feel about punishments regarding spitting, and you are jumping to conclusions in assuming that my opinions would change were a different player involved. It's very judgmental of you, and to be honest I'm slightly annoyed that you would jump to that conclusion about me.

As long as I've been here I feel like I have been a very fair member of the Warpath. No matter the issue, I feel like I state my opinions (albeit strongly) in a very fair and consistent manner. I don't feel like I've given you any reason to believe that I am such a "homer", and it's a bit annoying to be classified that way.

I'm a big boy and it won't be an issue going forward, I just wish you'd cool it with this passing judgment trend you're on right now.

Sorry if I'm on a high horse to you, I simply think spitting is a more heinous act than throwing a punch, and alot of people in the NFL seem to agree.

You don't hear about guys getting fined $17,500 for throwing a punch, do you?? I wonder why.
Sorry to stray a little bit, but I think a large part of the stigma associated with spitting is first cultural and then personal. Football is seen as an old school game played by men with honor, and as long as men act like men (hit, punch, kick), our conditioned minds are trained to think nothing of it.

Spitting is interesting because it isn't seen as a very "manly" thing to do around these parts, and because the "disgust factor" against bodily secretions is ingrained in most of our minds. Hence the description of the act as vile, disgusting, heinous, etc.

Take for e.g., the Arab world. Many of the Iraqi prisoners that were subject to the atrocities in Abu Ghraib prison have come out saying that they'd rather have been shot than sexually humiliated in the way they were. Me, on the other hand, I'd whack off in front of a woman in uniform than take a bullet to the head anyday (but that's just me). Its both cultural and personal.

Re: Sean Taylor Spitting Video

Can we just drop this already?? What Sean Taylor did was wrong, the punishment fit the crime. Should Pittman have been flagged??? Who cares! We won anyways. As soon as Taylor takes one to the house again, everyones gonna forget about it, just move on.

You know that just wouldn't be us though.

Last week it was Arrington, now it's the spitting incident.

We can't be content just talking about our first playoff appearance since '99, we need drama!!

Re: Sean Taylor Spitting Video

This is getting a bit heated, and, although I didn't want to reveal my information, I think maybe I can help resolve this issue for everyone:
Sean Taylor did NOT spit on Pittman.

Anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows that there was obviously a second spitter on the grassy knoll, and that the spitter was none other than Keith Hernandez. If you believe otherwise, then you are simply a lemming, blindly following the pack as the "government" leads. It's all a conspiracy, man.

Kinda funny how someone was just telling me to get off my high horse and saying how my opinion was based on emotion and was ridiculous.

And there would have been no ejections if I were reffing. People may get grossed out, but I'd rather let the players play through fights and spitting. I don't like the concept of tipping the competitive balance of a game just because someone spat.

I didn't get my feelings hurt, if that's what you're implying. It's not an emotional issue for me, but because you have shown a tendency to be judgmental in this thread, I think it speaks to why you can't look at the spitting situation objectively, and I think it affects your credibility a bit.
