Ramon Foster says multiple Bengals players were spitting on Steelers

A story emerged Monday out of Pittsburgh with Steelers lineman David DeCastro claiming Vontaze Burfict spit on him during the wildly out-of-control wild-card game on Saturday night.

Now fellow lineman Ramon Foster is claiming there were multiple Bengals players spitting on Steelers players during Pittsburgh's 18-16 win.

Foster told CBS Sports Radio's 93.7 the Fan that Burfict "wasn't the only guy."

“He wasn’t the only guy,” Foster said. “I will say that he had another culprit out there with him.”

So is this normal on the football field? And/or acceptable? Hint: no. 

“It’s uncommon,” Foster said. “And I think it’s a huge deal. Spitting on somebody is a huge offense. You take that as a sign of major disrespect. I don’t care what venue you’re in -- basketball, football, hockey, or you’re at your neighborhood bar -- spitting on somebody is unacceptable.”

Spitting on someone is basically the quickest way to denigrate another human being. The Steelers and Bengals were engaged in legit battle on the field but there's no excuse for spitting on one another.
