Re: NFL fines Cowboys' Owens $35,000 for spitting on Hall

Is there a video that shows T.O. spitting??? Because at first there was no video that showed spit during the broadcast, but the NFL Network showed the actual spit flying. And that made ST look like an idiot because he lied about it.

I wonder if this will happen to T.O.

As for Taylor, I for one would not have been upset if he was suspended because I believe spitting in someones face is worse than throwing a punch or juicing up.

I think all the talk about spitting is hilarious. I wonder what old school players like Art Donovan would have thought about all this fuss.

D. Hall is a punk b*#ch. Doesn't anyone remember all that talk he did after ATL played Det.

If he feels so disrespected by the act, then do something about on the field.

Football is great, it allows a player to redeem himself on the field (within reason). D. Hall should have knocked TO's d*&K in the dirt instead of complaining to the media.

Dick Butkus used to spit all over the opposing center. Back of the neck, back of the centers hands while he snapped the ball, etc

Re: NFL fines Cowboys' Owens $35,000 for spitting on Hall

I'm not sure if this was a fair ruling.

Don't get me wrong I'm not defending Owens at all, but how does a spitting fine more than double since January when Taylor got fined $17k... and they don't even have TO's offense on tape??

He's wise to appeal.

Some of the sports shows are justifying that as, the players need to get the message, and they are escalating the fines. One show suggested it should be a percentage of the players salary, to be fair. I like that

Yeah I get that, but I'm not sure that will hold up in an appeal.

Re: NFL fines Cowboys' Owens $35,000 for spitting on Hall

Well, the sports teams in general need to get with the program, and hit these guys where it's going to hurt. If you really want to stop the NBA type stuff, and other less severe stuff, it's going to have to get much more serious. It may be interesting to see what David Stern does?

A fine w/o a suspension is more than fair. If he's not getting suspended he should have at least double the fine of ST.

Why would they suspend TO?

Taylor wasn't and they had his on tape in it's full glory.

I guess I consider ejection and suspension essentially the same thing. He missed playing time due to spitting. He was caught on tape and a ref saw it which led to his guilt. TO admitted to it which also leads to his guilt. Heavy fine and/or missing some game time is fair.

I don't think Taylor lost a game check for the ejection, but, if suspended, TO would lose 1/16th of his salary for each game missed.

Agreed, dude.

I think it's ridiculous.

I hate TO and honestly it wouldn't hurt my feelings one bit if he had to leave football for "injury reasons" caused by me. I've never seen someone love themselves so much.

Dallas is like an evil empire. A conglomerate of all the players, coaches and fans I hate most in football (even though Eagles fans are worse).
