It doesn't necessarily excuse Channing Crowder for losing his mind after Sunday's game at Baltimore, but for what it's worth, it appears the Dolphins linebacker wasn't lying when he said Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain spit in his face. Take a look at this (and thank you to Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald for passing this along):





It will be interesting to see how the NFL disciplines McClain for this.

At least McClain spit in the face of a guy who could give him a fight. Frank Walker (also of the Ravens) spit in the face of the Steelers Punter a couple years ago.

Hines Ward is a head hunter.  One of the nicest guys in the NFL, ha, maybe off the field. 

About the spitting thing, yeah, it sucks.  But its funny how the NFL might suspend somebody for that, but if somebody chop blocks another guy and tears his knee, that is just part of the game.

I have to wonder how much saliva and sweat actually flies around during an NFL football game with all of the hitting and pushing and piling in the trenches. 

I agree its kind of gross, but lets stop acting like its the worst thing you can possibly do to a guy.  Last time I checked, there is nothing physically wrong with Crowder today due to this spitting.

It sure looks like he spit, and if he did it's a cowardly act.  Perhaps he didn't punch at him so he wouldn't hurt the team getting a personal foul, but spitting is as low as you can go. It's right up there as hitting a man from behind. Hopefully the league will fine and/or suspend McClain if they determine he did spit. And, if he did, hopefully he'll admit and own up to it.  He'll be more respected for it.

I agree that Crowder may not be a classy guy and that better guys don't get spit on, not that spitting is right if it did happen. 

But I also think that you the person who are writing this person seem to be pretty classless yourself.  First of all, calling players "ghetto", what does that even mean.  Did you ever live in the ghetto, are you white?  Either way, its a racist thing to say.  Then to call Crowder sexist after making racist remarks is just hypocritical. 

Also, to still be calling Ray Lewis "ghetto", based on something that happened ten years ago, when he is clearly not the same guy anymore, is also dumb.  He is one of the most respected men in NFL history, so please don't compare him to Crowder.  How much longer does he need to show you that he has changed since that incident and that he has let go of those types of people from his life?

CHANNING IS A MOUTHY LITTLE PUNK!

Come on people, what NFL player isn't a mouthy little punk?  They all are mouthy and talk trash.  Get over it the trash talking, it isn't a reason to spit on someone.  The trash in this whole thing is McClain.....How can a couch potato even make a remark that Crowder doesn't even belong in the NFL.  Your talent evaluation skills will be in high demand soon.

Has anyone considered the possibility that while he may have spit, it was not a purposeful, malicious act?


I think anytime you spit in someone's face it's malicious.

I'm a Ravens fan, but that's just wrong.

Channing Crowder is a mouthy little punk. He doesnt belong in the NFL. He isnt even a good player. I doubt McClain purposely spit on him. Looks to me like McClain threw a headbutt at Channing instead. Which Crowder deserves.
