NFL: no evidence to support discipline of Le'Ron McClain in spitting incident

By Cindy Boren

The NFL has closed the book on spitgate, saying there is inconclusive evidence to back Channing Crowder's claim that Le'Ron McClain spit on him during the Baltimore Ravens' game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

There will be no fine or suspension in l'affaire from Sunday's game. The league statement, via Jeff Darlington, reads: "Director of Football Operations Merton Hanks has reviewed video and reports from the on-field officials, including referee John Parry, who was in the immediate vicinity of the two players. After his review of the relevant and available information Hanks determined there is no conclusive video evidence to support discipline in this matter."
