Rice, Taylor not fined for their in-game exchange of pleasantries


On Sunday, Ravens running back Ray Rice apparently spit in the face of Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor.  Taylor actually responded with a blow to the head of Rice.

Neither have been fined.

For Rice, the absence of evidence of the spittle could have saved him.  For Taylor, it’s clear that there was contact to the head.

So why wasn’t Taylor fined?  It could be that the league believed, but couldn’t prove, that Rice did indeed spit, justifying the reaction from Taylor, who insisted there was spit.

Either way, neither guy will have any of his pay diverted to the Human Fund.

    Ray: What’d you say about my mama?
    Phil: Hey! Any of y’all want some cheeseburgers?

    There’s video there’s just not spit. Big fat Phil Taylor needs to step back next time he comes to Baltimore.

    I’m pretty sure Big Phil has Turds bigger than Ray, RIce needs to pick on guys his own size, like at Pop Warner Games.

    I’m getting old. At first glance, I thought this was about Jerry Rice and John Taylor.
