Sport's Spitting Scandals

11 of 17

Spadaro Spits on the Star

David Spadaro, the guy behind the Philadelphia Eagles’ website, grabbed headlines after videotaping himself spitting on the Dallas Cowboys' star.

The spit-tape sparked outrage among the public despite the fact that Spadaro is not a player or coach for the team. As an employee of the Eagles, he was expected to act with a level of professionalism and many felt his actions crossed that line.

Spadaro apologized for his actions, saying “As you may have seen, I went too far with my Spudcam video prior to Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Acting alone, and without permission from the Eagles organization, I walked out to the middle of the field at Cowboys Stadium and spit on the Cowboys star, and for that I deeply apologize to the outstanding Cowboys organization and the fine people there, from Jerry Jones to the rest of the team."

He added, "I won't ever do it again and I just went over the line of professionalism. The fans have really taken this thing and had a good time with it but it has been a difficult couple of days and I embarrassed the Eagles organization, I embarrassed myself and, for that, I am truly sorry."
