Actually, the big difference between Faneca/Porter and Taylor is Faneca/Porter had big mouths and were pretty disrespectful of the owners and the FO in general. Taylor has a good relationship with the Rooneys and I haven't heard a ton of bitching from him. I would think the trend history has shown us is that you keep your mouth shut and be reasonable and you stand a good chance of sticking around ... not guaranteed, but it works better than going off like a d-bag.
