I get so sick of these 'attitude' plays. Here is a guy who has never played an NFL game, but he decides he knows better than everyone else, so he leaves the meetings. His time is too valuable to do what everyone else has to do.
It reminds me of Tony Stewart leaving a mandatory, NASCAR pre-race meeting during the other racer's Q&A session. He decided the other drivers questions were stupid, so he left the meeting early. In this case, Tony Stewart is a past champion, NOT a rookie! NASCAR took away his qualifying position and made him start at the back of the field (I can't recall if he was also fined). In other words, his negative, arrogant actions off the track hurt his competitive chances on the track, although he was allowed to race.
Maybe Taylor should have been suspended for the first half of the first game, so he couldn't start in the season opener.
