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.

I hope they have a much clearer video than this one. The front angle looks like he may have spit the second angle looks like it was a head but.  If he consciouly spat he should be fined and suspended a game. He talks smack all day he probably told him to F' off and had some spital. If they don't have a clear view of a loogie leaving his helmet you have to take his wordf or it.

I suppose Goodell should suspend McClain for the spit, and it was a bad thing to do.

I also think Goodell should consider fining or suspending Dansby and Crowder for their comments after the game.  Spit or no spit, Goodell can't have guys after the game going off like that, threatening people publicly off the field. 

"Hopefully, [NFL commissioner] Roger Goodell will look at the film and he'll do something about it. If he don't, we'll see him in the street and we'll have to handle it,"   Umm, does Goodell want his employees verbally threatening to assault other players in the street? 

"Like they didn't see [Dolphins QB] Chad Henne get hit twice when he slid. ... Stevie Wonder and Anne Frank. Who's the blind girl? Helen Keller, then. I don't know who Anne Frank is. I'm mad right now. I'm not as swift as I usually am."   Okay, now he is questioning the refs, that's a fine at least I think. 


"If he ever comes to Miami, he's got to see me."   Sounds like another threat to me.   Should be a suspension there. 


Why is Crowder in the backfield of the Ravens after the timeout anyway?  Spitting isn't right, but this guy acted like a fool before the game, during the game, and now after the game.

mcclain is a PUNK. if your man enough to spit in another mans face your man enough to get beat down. Crowder has every right to be mad about this but people are saying he is ghetto. come'on. everyone put yourself in his shoes and tell me you still would not be mad as hell if somebody spit in your face. that is the worse thing you can do to another man or human. i say we get UFC to promote this fight after the year is up and see how big and bad mcclain is. i would say that 75% of the ravens would also think that he is a punk for doing thatand running like a girl

It's shows what kind of person McClain is to spit in a guys face, walk away and have someone else protect his back, and then flat-out lie about it when asked. A true piece of garbage. Derrick Mason should keep his big mouth shut because now he looks like a complete loser for running his dumbass mouth without finding out if it was true. Crowder has a right to be pissed and I would think anybody in his position would be just as angry. I hope the NFL hits McClain with a fine and suspension because it's totally uncalled for. I remember when Bill Romanowski did the same thing to J.J. Stokes and how many people think Romanowski is a class act.

Yeah, I saw it and it certainly looks pretty bad.   The only thing is they were doing the headbutting thing beforehand and that was the same motion sans the spit; something to consider.  I think my post raises a possibility(since the accused spitter denies) but stops short of concluding one way or another. That's all.  Not sure I should be judged a  "dolt" or what is going on with you that inclines you to diminish me(someone you don't know) with personal attacks for offering a different viewpoint for the sake of discussion; even if wrong.  Lighten up.  Cheers.


It's not a matter of a "different viewpoint" - you're wrong.  Period.  The discussion is over - he spit in his face, and you're wrong.  Deal with it.

Let's give "full" credit where credit is due: Kudos to the Ravens for giving the Dolphins their ONLY WIN the year Cam Cameron was a head coach.
