Chris Samuels and the Alleged Spitter
Chris Samuels went on at least three or four rants about his tantrum after an extra point yesterday. Samuels went nuts on the field, was restrained by teammates, screamed at officials and then tossed his helmet. After the game, he claimed Cardinals DL Antonio Smith spit in his face. Smith, via the Washington Times, denied it:
"Boy, boy, boy, boy, boy," Smith said when informed of Samuels' charge, "Tell Chris Samuels, quit being a coward and tell the truth. That's all I got to say about it."
Ok, this is officially getting interesting, because here's Samuels's final speech on the matter yesterday, to me and another reporter.
"The guy in spit in my face," Samuels said. " We were jaw jacking, just talking trash, and once Khary [Campbell] got there and kind of got in between us to break it up, he spit in my face, 94."
[Quote continued below]
"Coach always talks about the second guy's always gonna get called, but at that time I just lost it, I didn't care, because I would never do that to another person. I respect everybody as a man out there on that field, and he just totally disrespected me by spitting in my face.
"Luckily Khary held me back and I didn't hurt the team, so I was fortunate. I was gonna get thrown out, I can go ahead and tell you that now.
"I've seen it happen around the league and we kind of laugh about it, like 'That's kind of low, that's low down and dirty,' but now that it happened to me it gave me a whole different perspective. I won't laugh about it any more, because I was in that situation, I was the victim of the spitting. It was terrible, man. I would never disrespect a guy like that. The guy needs a little home training, I guess."
