Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano has asked the NFL to look into the accusation from ILB Channing Crowder that Ravens FB Le'Ron McClain spit in Crowder's face on Sunday.

Crowder delivered a profanity-laced tirade following the game, saying that McClain spit him in the face during a confrontation in the third quarter of the Ravens' 26-10 win on Sunday. McClain denied spitting.

Sparano said Monday that he has sufficient evidence to justify bringing the matter to the league. A video replay from WFOR-TV in Miami appears to confirm that McClain did spit in Crowder's face.

The way we see it

When officials see the video, McClain will likely be fined for the incident. It's obvious McClain made a spitting motion and it set Crowder off.
