Yesterday, we reported that Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder accused Le’Ron McClain of spitting on him after calling a timeout in the fourth quarter.  Here’s the spitgate story line.

  • Here is the video of Crowder accusing McClain and the evidence of the incident.
  • McClain tweeted in response: “Video shows me arguing with guy! Called him something and i guess a Lil spit got on him. Not on purpose #FACT.”
  • According to Ravens Insider, Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano said he has enough evidence to prove McClain did spit on Crowder and that he will send it along to the NFL.  “This deal about spitting in somebody’s face, nowhere in this game do I see any place for that,” Sparano said to the Miami Herald.
  • McClain reasserted on Monday that he did not spit on Crowder.  According to Ravens Insider, McClain said, “We had words back and forth. We said a few things we probably didn’t want to say to one another. But there was no spitting involved. I’m not that type of player. I don’t know why he got mad.”
  • According to, John Harbaugh supported McClain’s story. “But I talked to Le’Ron, I’ve seen the videotape of it. It didn’t happen. Here’s a guy, he’s a captain at Alabama, he’s a Pro Bowler, been nothing but a model guy here for us,” he said.
