Miami Dolphins: Video of Le'Ron McClain Spitting in Channing Crowder's Face

Chris J. NelsonSenior Writer INovember 8, 2010

Emotions are still running high a day after the Miami Dolphins' 26-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Specifically, Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder is livid after Ravens fullback Le'Ron McClain allegedly spit in Crowder's face after he called a timeout on defense.

McClain has denied Crowder's accusations, but video evidence of the incident corroborates Crowder's account.

The video here shows Crowder and McClain exchanging words facemask-to-facemask. McClain makes a blatant "spitting" motion with his head, after which time Crowder angrily goes after McClain and has to be restrained by the Dolphins' Kendall Langford and the Ravens' Willis McGahee.

Frustrated with the disappointing loss, the Dolphins are hoping for bit of justice here as head coach Tony Sparano says he will submit evidence of McClain's actions to the league.

If the NFL deems the video above and any other incriminating material, McClain could be looking at a hefty fine or suspension from the league.
