Channing Crowder Says Le’Ron McClain Spit in His Face
Channing Crowder has been all over the headlines this week. Earlier in the week, he made some comments about Derrick Mason being an old man and Mason responded by saying he’s been catching passes since Crowder was still wetting himself. According to the Dolphins linebacker, the war went beyond words during the Miami-Baltimore game on Sunday, which the Ravens won 26-10.
Crowder told The Miami Herald after the game that Ravens running back Le’Ron McClain spit in his face during the third quarter. Crowder then proceeded to call McClain a “bitch-ass punk” and a “ho.” Meanwhile, Mason was in the Ravens locker room telling reporters that Crowder is a “bad player” who will be out of the league before Mason — who’s 36 — retires.
Things kept getting uglier, at least from a verbal standpoint. The most memorable quotes about the situation came from Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby.
Man, if I’d have seen that, there would have been a damn brawl out there, straight up,” Dansby said. “We don’t play that. We some tough guys. But if you take a cowardly way like that, you need to be straightened. Hopefully, 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 like men.”
Them there are fightin’ words — literally. I’d be willing to wager nothing happens “in the street,” but it would probably be wise for Goodell to take a look at the situation and try to do something to diffuse it. Otherwise the refs will need to be armed with stun guns and riot shields in the unlikely event that the two teams should meet in the playoffs.
