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.

Video backs up Channing Crowder's accusations

I'm not completely clear on what you're trying to say, since you don't really form complete sentences here.  But this guy was talking trash leading up to the game for really no reason whatsoever, and this alleged incident happened because for some reason he decided to walk through the backfield to call timeout, which is obviously something you shouldn't do.  Even the most biased dolphins fan would be crazy to think he didn't say something along the way.  Its like if I had some beef with my neighbor where I know he's better than me and I can never measure up to him, so I start talking all kinds of trash to make myself feel better.  Then I go strolling through his yard when he's out there, we get into it verbally, cause I'm an asshole, and then he spits on me.  Thats basically what happened.  Its not like I was minding my own business and someone came up and just spat on me.

Video backs up Channing Crowder's accusations

fan of neither team but crazylegs are you for real !!!  first of  all spitting in someone's face is a crime actually spitting on a person is a crime  any Moronic  as you claim made by Crowder are more than justified, i believe calling someone a Punk  is not a moronic statement and i  totally agree with Karlos Dansby's assertion that   he is not only a PUNK but a COWARD , because right after he spits and turns and runs behind his teammates

I really don't understand why this is such a big deal.  Its disrespectful, but there were numerous things he himself did that provoked some type of action.  Over the top response, sure, and McClain should personally apologize if its true.  But the overall embarassment of Crowder's moronic comments undeniably hurt his case and should be taken into consideration.  He shows no respect for others and made it clear he would have no remorse about deliberately putting someone's long term health in jeopardy.
That having been said, all this tough guy talk from the dolphins fans is hilarious.  "I hope we meet again in the playoffs"??? Are you serious?  There are 7-8 afc teams easily better than the dolphins.  The amount of attention this is getting makes it clear that you're avoiding your team's on field performance.

Yeah, we got beat, big deal, it's just 1 game. The fact of the matter remains is that he spit in Crowder's face...and then he runs away like the punk he is to only have saint Willis of all people to jump in. I don't blame the whole team and also feel he needs to sit for a game or 2. It's a shame we don't play them again in the regular season. Hopefully we get another shot in the playoffs. We will not need this as chalkboard material because every Dolphin player will remember and take the necessary action...whenever that might be. LeRon no talent Mclain is now public enemy for all other teams and not just in Miami.

How can you idiots say you didn't see any spit come from his mouth????  Yeah the video was a little grainy, but you can clearly see the spit coming from the MORONS mouth and hitting Crowder in the face.  Some of you ppl are just too ignorant to see it and therefore say you don't see it.  Get real the fact is it takes NO man to do that sort of thing and for him to do that just shows how much of an idiot this guy is.

Tempers flare in games, it happens but McClain crossed the line.  It doesn't take any "TOUGHNESS" to spit in another man's face, it takes a P U S S Y.

Do they have anything in higher definition, the video quality of that indicates nothing more than McLain butting his face mask at Crowder's face mask. They were mask to mask jawing at each other and after the facemask butt, Crowder swings at air. Video was too grainy to see much of anything.

Big Deal...McClain will be suspended perhaps, no biggie Baltimore can survive his loss for a week. But the Dolphins to villify the whole team over one player, sounds like they are just Bitter the far more dangerous and TOUGH team kicked their @$$ all over the field in the second half on route to an easy win... Ravens are way tougher than this Miami bnuinch a whiners, Chowder should of been smarter he trashed Mason and mason made him pay. He is just crying cuz he lost.

I like the Ravens, but McClain deserves to be fined, maybe suspended for a game. That's bush league BS.

I see him lunge at him but did not see any fluid in the video. Is that the proof ? We can make assumptions but I dint see and spit. I see guys lunge and hit masks all the time. I really hope he didnt spit. Thats disgusting if he did. I just cant say he did based on the things i have seen. If he did, then he needs to be suspended for a few games....thats gross. i find some of the bravado by some posters on here acting tough.
