Crayton wonders about double standard in spitting incident

The Eagles are trying to put the kibosh on Wednesday’s spitting incident by a team employee.  Andy Reid brushed off a question about it, and the Eagles players didn’t have anything to say.  That’s to be expected. 

The story won’t quite die yet though.  It’s created a stir in both towns, and Cowboys receiver Patrick Crayton had interesting thoughts on the matter. 

“I don’t even know what the repercussions are, what the Philly
people did to him, the owner and everything. I don’t know if he’s been
fired or fined or anything. If there was no action, then that let’s you
know what the owner of Philly and the people up there think about it as
well.”

The Eagles, in fact, announced that website editor Dave Spadaro will not be punished and will attend Sunday’s game.  (We recommend a helmet.)

Crayton contrasts that lack of action to last offseason when an Eagles game-day employee was fired for a Facebook message criticizing the loss of Brian Dawkins.

“My thing is, if they fired a guy over MySpace [actually Facebook] over
a former player, and this guy comes down here and spits on another
team’s logo and nothing is done about that, it let’s us know what
Philly thinks about it,” Crayton said.

Crayton is right. You can spit on someone else’s logo, but can’t spit where you eat and expect to survive.

    Well the players spit on the field all the time. I think it was a funny, though a bit classless, act on Spit-daro’s part. He was not doing it on someone or in real anger, it was merely a reach for a humorous moment, and like many others who went to far to find humor, it failed to work very well. Get over it Crayton get over it Cowboy fans.

  2. Chapnasty2 says: Jan 7, 2010 6:09 PM

    As much as it irritates me to hear Crayton open his mouth after New England beat them 2 years ago and he was quoted: “We’ll see them in February”, he is right on point. There is no class or anything out of that organization. I would be enbarassed to be a fan, a resident or anyone affiliated with that team.

  3. Citizen Strange says: Jan 7, 2010 6:12 PM

    The common sense answer is of course the guy is a dumbass but he shouldn’t be fired.
    Are players fired when they spit on each other?

  4. MoD-White says: Jan 7, 2010 6:14 PM

    who cares?

  5. JimmySmith says: Jan 7, 2010 6:16 PM

    Doesn’t Crayton have more important things to worry about, like what time Vox is dropping off his laundry?

  6. bigrig says: Jan 7, 2010 6:16 PM

    If ths guy shows up for “Sunday’s game”, he will be a day late.
    Just like the Sheagles have been for both Dallas games this season.

  8. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 7, 2010 6:20 PM

    The Cowboys should ban spuds from the stadium. Not so much for spitting, but for being a typical Philly coward.

  9. mustbechris says: Jan 7, 2010 6:21 PM

    Listen, Philly actually agrees. We all hate Spadaro. He’s trying so hard to seem like an “everyday guy” and is trying to “level” with us, but we just don’t like him. He’s a dork.
    Personally, I don’t care. And I don’t mean that as “it’s not a big deal, I hate Dallas”, I mean it as “this is orchestrated, Spadaro’s a chump, and by caring, I’m giving more credence to it than that man deserves”.
    I can only hope Spadaro gets fired. I don’t expect it though, he’s an effective mouthpiece for the team.
    Doesn’t mean any of us are gonna start liking him, though.
    So I never thought I’d say this…but I agree with Patrick Crayton.

  10. Kulp says: Jan 7, 2010 6:23 PM

    Oh yeah, that makes sense…
    Some random guy who works a whopping eight days a year and has a disability that prevents him from doing his job well in the first place calls his boss retarded and gets fired.
    The full time editor of PhiladelphiaEagles.com engages in an unprofessional and tasteless, but otherwise harmless prank aimed at a rival organization and gets to keep his job.
    The similarities are remarkable.

  11. robolundgren says: Jan 7, 2010 6:30 PM

    Like anyone who follows football didn’t already know that the Eagles organization and their fans are classless.

  12. toe-to-toe bird law says: Jan 7, 2010 6:32 PM

    Wow. I hate to say it, but I actually agree with Crayton. I’m not really sure what Dave Spadaro’s title is. Team Ambassador? Official Sugar Coater of the Truth? I can’t tell.

  13. namputhiri says: Jan 7, 2010 6:33 PM

    cowboys fan should be pissed….. still cant believe that a philly employee would do that… forget the fans ….. still saddened bout the cheering of the motionless micheal irvin at veterans… that was sad.. and this guy is just a bufoon…. if this guy wasnt fired or fined heavily (its within the NFL rights… cuz it was on the NFL/philly website) then its bcuz of jerry jones….. cuz if he wanted to .. he could make it so… someone spits in any of our homes/gyms..we’d be pissed (even eagles fans) and id be far less amenable than atleast wat jerry jones has made it
    i dont particulary like jerry but that guy is deep down a very good man (see: his salvation donations.. and other charities)… that stadium to him was like his baby…. like my car is to me….
    for the star …. i like to think of it as important
    i remember u george teague

  14. SuzyKolberIsAwesome says: Jan 7, 2010 6:40 PM

    the guy the Eagles fired, IS IN A WHEELCHAIR…the Eagles call themselves THE GOLD STANDARD, Andy Reid referred to the Eagles as THE BEST ORGANIZATION IN FOOTBALL, tolerating this stuff from Spadaro, AND NOT FIRING HIM, says what type of organization they really are…there are people on Philly Sports Talk Radio defending what Spadaro did, yet those very people think it’s unfair that Philly fans are portrayed by the national media… you can’t have it both ways, spitting on the star is one thing, FILMING IT, and PUTTING IT ON THE EAGLES WEBSITE truly is classless, at what point did Spadaro think putting that on the Eagles website was worthwhile? The Eagles aren’t going to do ANYTHING to punish him? IS their is a more HORSESH#T Organization than the Eagles front office???

  15. WeaponX says: Jan 7, 2010 6:42 PM

    Crayton is a knucklehead, there is no double standard there. I don’t think the guy showing disrespect to the Eagles front office should have been fired, but he was verbally attacking the Eagles. While Spadaro was attacking the most hated team by the Eagles, and probably a lot of other cities as well. Cause all Cowgirl fans are cowards, and won’t be saying anything until next september because they all run and hide like the girls that they are. Crayton got lucky on that TD last week. There won’t be any confusion like that on SATURDAY!!! Go Eagles!!!

  16. tdiddy says: Jan 7, 2010 6:42 PM

    Just another classless act from Philly, what would you expect.

  19. Bog Saget says: Jan 7, 2010 6:49 PM

    “Like anyone who follows football didn’t already know that the Eagles organization and their fans are classless.”
    Come on man, As an Eagles fan I thought what he did was stupid. Spadaro is a tool who shouldn’t even have a job. All Eagles fans are not classless. We have some morons here but most of the fans just want to win a superbowl and are passionate about their team. Don’t get me wrong, I hate the Cowboys, but I do respect them. I didn’t boo McNabb when we drafted him and I didn’t boo Michael Irvin when he got concussed at the Vet. I’ve been to an Eagles game in Dallas and from my experience I could call your fans classless as well. I am going to the game again this week in Dallas with my McNabb jersey to support me team. You guys may be overconfident and I would love to see the look on Cowboys’ fans faces if we knock you out because you all have been talkin the past week like you won the damn superbowl. This is the game that matters and we will see you shows up. Good Luck and make sure you don’t kill yourself on Saturday when we end your playoff hopes…oh yea E-A-G-L-E-S…Eagles

  20. KingerIC3000 says: Jan 7, 2010 6:49 PM

    “omeone spits in any of our homes/gyms..we’d be pissed (even eagles fans)”
    hahaha, i love how we’re treated as subhuman around here.
    As for Irvin, we’d boo him again tomorrow. he was a great player, but you wanna talk about classless? The guys not a good person (not to mention a certifiable, class a IDIOT). We were happy because for once, someone shut that big f—ing mouth of his. Not our proudest moment, but one im sure no eagles fan is ashamed of, either.

  23. Jah says: Jan 7, 2010 6:56 PM

    I don’t understand why everybody is grouping all of Philly into what one dumbass does. Philly isn’t classless, Dave Spadaro did. We (yes, I’m from Philly) didn’t go to the Eagles website and ask him to spit on the star for us.
    If you knew anything about Philly or Eagles fans, you would know that no one here even likes Spadaro…and now we’re getting blamed for what he does?

  24. troll_aikman8 says: Jan 7, 2010 7:01 PM

    This is the norm for Philadelphites. I’m surprised the Eagles didn’t give him the Ed Block Courage award.

    @ the shoeman
    Great clip. Notice the Cowboy fans never pelt him with snowballs, pounce on him, spit on him or anything of the sort. One can infer that this idiot was running his mouth and obviously wouldn’t listen to security after he was instructed it was time for him to leave. For you to use that as an example of what Dallas does wrong, then you are out of your mind and just proved how much more class Dallas fans do have.

    Believe it or not, I don’t even care about his little adolescent spitting act. Someone said he also did it to the logo of the Redskins. Yes, he’s a douche and a serial douche at that.. But it’s not a huge deal.
    And having said that, everyone who comes in contact with him Saturday at the game should show him spitting is not really that big of a deal by spitting all over his shiney, gay philly head. It’s not such a huge deal, this spitting thing. So spit with impunity, spit with passion and spit with excellent aim upon this fun loving guy!!

  29. JAYMAC says: Jan 7, 2010 7:15 PM

    What about Santa? What did he ever do to the eagles? I remember, all those xmas wishes for a superbowl title that never came true! Reason enough to pelt him with snowballs!

  30. Marc F says: Jan 7, 2010 7:18 PM

    oh get over it you freaks. watch the video. it’s almost an incidental spitting, like a little bit of extra dribble when he finished talking, he spit it out, not really thinking about where he was or the fact the camera was on, then just to cover his ass on camera by spitting, he insinuated it was on the star and a rub against Dallas.
    talk about making a mountain outta a molehill. the players spit all the time. our on Mcnabb pukes on the field. is that disrespectful to the Jags and patriots when he did it? yet i think the cowboys are a bunch of pukes.
    get over it.

    To cheer any injured player is classless, no matter who it is,or what team they play for. Or how much you hate the team they play for.
    Eagle fans, you are an embarrassment to the rest of the other NFL fans.
    Go ahead and defend it, we know all you will prove my point.

    “Let’s HEAR from the Cowboys about their

    Paying customers lose their right to be there when they act up and if they resist efforts to keep them in line and keep messing it up for everyone around them, they’re going to get their asses kicked and rightfully so. This is not Pennsylvania. It’s Texas. We remove troublemakers. Not victims, as we all saw happen at the Linc to a couple of 49er fans. It’s the way we do things, and the way that things should be done. Don’t like it? Stay home.

  37. VoxVagina says: Jan 7, 2010 7:37 PM

    By the way, Gregg, the game’s on Saturday. And Spadaro’s spit was meant to be funny but failed. He was just trying to reach and make a funny moment. Players spit on the field all the time. It’s not really a big deal. If that’s a majority the Cowboys’ motivation to win the game, it’s a lost cause. Spadaro’s never gonna be able to take back his spit from the turf.

  38. chunky soupy sales says: Jan 7, 2010 7:39 PM

    @ Shoeman,
    Watched the vid, didn’t see the punch. I saw much wrestling and I am NOT saying there wasn’t a punch. But I did not see it.
    But you know what, these guys are security for a reason. If a guard is escorting you out of an area, if you fight with him you are probably going to get a scratch or two. Some of these guys are probably off duty cops and are NOT going to take the ####. Good for them, they are getting paid to do a job. They did it. But you never saw one fan attack him did you?
    Contrast that to the Philly fans snow balling the 49er fans. This was paying customers attacking other paying customers while Philly’s esteemed security did NOTHING for the longest time.
    The two situations are not even close. One guy ####ed with security and got the horns, the snow ball throwers was nothing less than assault.

  39. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 7, 2010 7:40 PM

    “On what PLANET .. do you believe:
    “running his mouth” deserves to be PUNCHED in the face!, by an employee ?”
    When he becomes such a pain to others around him that he is asked to leave, refuses, then resists efforts to remove him. The guy absolutely deserved it. He should have just left when he was told to.

    who the hell cares? Every single player, coach, and probably employee will spit on that field Saturday night. Why the hell is spitting classless and wrong and worthy of being fired? I spit on a crosswalk the other day. Is my town mayor going to find me and kick me out of town? I’m not an Igles fan, but I’m from South Jersey. I know and everyone knows they are crazy. I like it, and they like it. Cowboys fans are just little pussies constantly on their menstrul cycles.

    We tell you to leave all the time, Vox, and yet here you remain…
    Also, you’d be pretty hard-pressed to find anyone in Philly who likes or agrees with Dave Spadaro.
    Also, to Philly fans – why bother writing a well-written, well-intentioned argument for why we aren’t represented by Spuds’ idiocy? The subhumans on PFT don’t care about why, they’re just looking for their shots to mention “5 rings” or “Stay classy, Philly!”. They reference people throwing snowballs at Santa 40 years ago, after all. You can’t reason with those types of scum.

  49. drbob1117 says: Jan 7, 2010 8:20 PM

    mustbechris is right… most of us diehard Eagles fans hate Spadaro; he’s just a dork that tried to ingratiate himself with the fans by doing something stupid… That said, I’m sure the football field gets spit on several times a game, because, well, it’s a football field, players get dirt in their face, get dry mouth etc. BTW, I hate to agree with Patrick Crayton, or any Cowboy player, but he’s right, and the original article spells out the reason, Spadaro’s act was in it’s own warped way, loyal, whereas Dan Leone’s was perceived as disloyal. Jeff Lurie is classless, so it never occurred to him that all Philly fans would be lumped together as classless because of this stupid act. He and his henchman Joe Banner are also hated by us diehard Eagles fans, we learned long ago to root for Reid on down , because the front office guys are just bad people.

  50. redsquare says: Jan 7, 2010 8:29 PM

    Stupid, stupid Eagles. The one edge they had going into this weekend, that the Cowboys might have lost their focus and attitude, is now lost. This story isn’t much, but it’s just enough disrespect to clear the Cowboys’ heads and keep them feeling like the underdogs not being taken seriously by their opponent.
    All the Eagles had to do was slap this idiot’s wrists, and they’d have returned the Cowboys to their happy place after their regular-season sweep. Now, the Cowboys have this little chip on their shoulders, and that may be all they need to romp over the Eagles again.
    Stupid Eagles.

    Hmm. I thought they only refused to teach evolution in Texas classrooms. Apparently, criminal justice gets a pass as well. Show me any cop who’s blatantly punched a perp in the face with a closed fist and I’ll show you a guy who’ll be investigated by IAB within 2 months, and most likely assigned to traffic duty. There’s no doubt in my mind that a lawsuit is pending, and rightfully so.

    mark 07: Eagle fan,hands in plain view – no threat at all. Employee pulling fans jersey.
    mark 11: Security has fan in arm-lock behimd back, fan fully cooperating with security.
    mark 13: fan put in headlock by security
    mark 18: girl ask question ,, physically pushed by security , ,no contact by girl.
    mark 22: fan pushed to ground,head-first.
    mark 30-32: security punching defensless fan in face.
    there is NO evidence of any physical-contact or non-compliance,by the fan . (if you disagree-point out the marks).
    mark 34-on: fans in total disbelief of what they are watching. One fan clearly video-recording w phone.
    At NO time were these 2 people in non-compliance with security instructions,or made any physical-contact in any way.
    These Security-Guards, CLEARLY..were playing it-up,for the Dallas faithful. ,,by ASSAULTING an opposing fan.
    Since in NO-WAY did they “act up /resist ” to lose,these so-called rights ..Vox is wrong.
    No,,I wouldn’t fight,,and clearly on the video,,either did these fans.
    So, ( Don’t like it, don’t act in a manner that results in your removal. There is nothing wrong here.) since they DID NOT “act in a manner that results in your removal.”
    There is EVERYTHING wrong here.
    there is no-way .. you can defend these actions.
    The Dallas Cowboy Employees here are, by far:
    the WORST any Eagle fan has ever seen!
    After seeing this video …
    maybe Dave was right ?

    @ the Shoeman – Are you kidding me with that clip……I bet that happens 10 times during an Eagirls game and the difference in Texas is the fans didn’t jump in and start pounding as well like you wussies only tend to do it groups.
    Tell Andy he better call up Seth Joiner, Harold Carmichael and Randal C and have them suit up and while he’s at it call Mark Walberg your going to need them :)

  73. .VoxVeritas says: Jan 7, 2010 10:14 PM

    “Show me any cop who’s blatantly”
    You just saw it happen. Punched him with a closed fist. The evidence is there for the world to see but you can plainly see the guy resisting, too. Can’t tell to what extent but any resistance in a situation like that is going to result in an application of force. If it’s determined that he posed a danger to the people around him then the guard is justified in doing just about any damn thing he pleases to protect, up to and including and beyond punching him in his face. Maybe that’s preferable to pepper spraying 50 people to take one guy down or shooting him in the eye. Don’t pretend that this is a case of a security guard just walking up to somebody and punching them in the face. He started some crap to get security up there in the first place and when they told him to leave, he not only refused but violently resisted with dozens of people in close proximity, it’s right there on the video. This guy was probably charged with a crime after this (disturbing the peace or disorderly conduct if nothing else) and may still be in jail. We’ll see if there’s a lawsuit. Wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you. He should have just left when he was told to. Losing $300 because you got kicked out of a game is better than losing $300, getting your ass kicked and thrown out of the game anyway, and possibly facing criminal charges.

    you people are missing the big picture here. the eagles will not do anything against the guy because they know what sort of a reaction it would get from their fans. sports radio would buzz until the game, and probably a week or 2 after if they fired the guy and it would be a big shitstorm for the team. the problem is that EVERY fan would do the same thing, without question, and they would be pissed if he was fired for doing something they would.
    If they are going to let this guy go, it will be right before the game, right after, or sometime much later in the offseason when no one knows who in the hell he is.

    @ redsquare
    I hadn’t seen any indication that the Cowboys had been losing focus, but if you were to say this incident had caused them to become even more focused, I’d have to agree with you. I don’t think they need a whole lot more focus, though. They’re playing very good football right now. The Eagles aren’t.
    Concerning the “stupid” Eagles, the entire organization didn’t spit on the star, one of their employees did. I doubt very much that he was acting under orders from his employers or had their blessing. It would have been only right for Spadaro to be made accountable, but I’ve got to wonder if whatever action they took would generally regarded as being a mere token to appease their critics. I’d bet the ranch that would be the case on this forum. The freaks that hang around here don’t come to practice being objective (except vox, of course). I do understand that in the greater scheme of things this forum has nothing constructive to add to the dialog at any point. Ever. I’m just saying.

  89. Steve says: Jan 8, 2010 1:41 AM

    To all of you that say that Dave Spadaro should be fired I say that is absolutley absurd. For anybody that follows the Eagles website Dave Spadaro is a classy individual who takes great pride into what he does. Not only does he work for the Eagles, he happens to be a die hard fan as well. The Spudcam that Dave does every Sunday is something that is done out of fun and in no way is supposed to represent the organization even though it is posted on their website. Today on Eagles live which is a daily show that they do on the eagles website, you would not believe how remorseful Dave was about the entire situation even when Eagles fans were calling in and saying they loved it, Dave would shoot it down right then and there and say it was completley unprofessional and classless on his part. So why dont all of us be adults about this and give the guy a break, everyone makes mistakes in their lives and Dave Spadaro is a guy that is 1st class in my book.

  90. CanadianVikingFan says: Jan 8, 2010 2:03 AM

    @hitman23
    Who cares about then? They said Brett Favre couldn’t play in the cold or at the end of the season. He sure played well in the 2nd half of Chicago and the final game. Infact people said that Favre would choke this whole season up with interception galore, doesn’t look that way huh? I would like the Giggles to beat the Cowgirls so that we could play the Packers one more time, because they are the only consistant quality opponent in the NFC.

    All of these posts regarding this Eagles Employee? Seriously?! Is anyone surprised about this? The organization and the fans have shown this year in and year out. Why is anyone surprised. Not too long ago, the organization fired a guy for commenting on his facebook page about a departed player. Yet one of the representatives of their team proudly spits on another team’s logo. I am not saying he should be fired for that, but if you put the two next to each other, and the guy with the facebook comment gets fired, then this guy should be fired too.
    Regarding fans, anyone that has watched football for any period of time should not be surprised that this is accepted behavior. These are the people that throw batteries, snowball santa claus, boo a player down on the field with a neck injury and pretty much are just the epitome of unsportsmanlike. Just ask them how many super bowls they have won and they like the employees of the organization, will spit on you too.

    I’ve worked security for 17 years. If I punched someone in the face because they were mouthing off without having first made a swing at me I’d have a new job title. Unemployed. I’d also be looking at a nice fine for assault.
    Jawing at someone, resisting a request to leave are not opportunities to descend into an assault. They’re more fuel for the fire when actual police show up and arrest the guy for multiple offenses.
    Luckily at the Eagles stadium they keep the police, jail, and courthouse all close enough that when some fool acts up, whether home or away fan, they actually can handle the situation legally.
    As for Spud. You can’t video tape something like that and then not face a reprocussion in my opinion. As an Eagles fan, it WAS classless and if you don’t want to be considered classless you can’t have a classless person as the face of your public image, so yep, I agree with Crayton too.
    Still hope the Birds beat the smugness back out of the Cowboys this Saturday night.

    I grew up in the Philly area as a Cowboys fan and have been for over 30 years. One of the things I hear constantly from my friends that are Eagle fans is that they are sick of being catagorized as loud-mouth, obscene, uneducated jerks. My friends that are Eagle fans do not fit the stereotype of what is thought to be the average Eagle fan.
    The problem is that the stereotype is enhanced by the 10% that fit it the description and idiotic stunts like this from Spadaro. I know that self-respecting Eagle fans can’t stand Spadaro, but his juvenile, stupid prank just enhances the stereotype.
    This is something I would expect from the clowns at 610 WIP, but not someone in the Eagles organization. (Whom I highly respect)

  106. ShootahCowboy says: Jan 8, 2010 10:06 AM

    Uziele,
    Great post, but I am curious…
    What smugness do the Cowboys possess? I could understand the mid-90′s Cowboy team, but not this one.
    Everything I have seen in the media is pointing to the fact that they are very businesslike in their approach to this game as well as very focused.
    We don’t really have the personalities on this Cowboys team for smugness..

    RE: Booing Santa Claus
    First off, I am a bleeding-royal-blue, diehard Dallas Cowboys fan. I’m not usually in the business of defending the Eagles or their fans, but it’s time to put the “Booing Santa Claus” into perspective.
    For that game, they had a Santa Claus that was supposed to come out. The original Santa Claus backed out. Instead they had some beanpole put on the Santa suit and the guy still didn’t look like Santa Claus. THAT, and a horrible game by the Eagles, was the reason Santa got booed….

    @shootahcowboy: Actually, your account of the Santa Claus event is mostly correct, it was beanpole ( by the way, he was 19, lots of media reports had him an a “grizzled old man”) They did a profile on him in Philly papers a few weeks ago; he’s 60 now, and has a sense of humor about the whole thing. He admitted he was a lousy Santa and would have booed too. The part you were wrong about was that the Eagles played horrible. They actually won the game, but that was the bad part. They finished the 1968 season one game better than Buffalo and got the 2nd pick in the draft. The Bills got the first. The Bills drafted OJ Simpson. The Eagles drafted Leroy Keyes. So yes, the fans were in poor huimor, because they knew they missed out on the franchise back. Of course, after his career, he did plenty of things that make Eagles fans happy he was a Bill.

    Spadaro is a tool and he should be punished. Our front office is a joke.
    I was an Eagles fan before the Lurie/Banner/Reid era and I’ll be one long after they are gone.
    Also, give the overgeneralizations about Philly fans a rest. I’m 30 and I go to a few Eagles games a year and a lot of Phillies games. I’ve never thrown a punch or a snowball. I’ve never yelled profanity at a woman or child.
