Amazingly classless act. Spitting in the face of another human being. I thought something was wrong with him, now I know for sure. He is seriously disturbed. You just don't do something like that. I just heard him admit it on NFL Network.

Should he / will he be fined / suspended?

That was a disgusting thing to do. For the life of me, I don't understand why teams continue to put up with T.O.s antics. I know he is talented but that is outweighed by the negative impact he has on his team, his teammates and on the NFL, IMO

I agree 110%. Sure he's talented, but every week theres another story about this guy, doing something. A guy with his talent should excite others on the team to have him around, and get the opportunity to play with him, and should be able to help raise the level of everyone elses game. However with him, I can't see that being the case. I'd hate to be on his team.

and spitting in someones face? just a disgrace all together... he should be fined definately.

This is blown way out of proportion IMO. Players spit on other player's faces ALL THE TIME, but just because the guy is name Terrell Owens, now we're going to make a big deal about this.

It is classless, it's wrong, but come on now. Players do this ALL THE TIME.

Funny thing is, ESPN makes it sound like the last player to ever spit on someone's face was Bill Romanowski. I guess they all forgot about Sean Taylor spitting at Michael Pittman last season. :shakeno:

But of course, let's compare Terrell Owens to another hated player in this league.

Eric Moulds and Sean Taylor didn't get this much hype over spit, and they do it all the damn time.

Well, lemme speak for myself: I don't think it is a classless act because it was done by T.O. I think it is a classless act because a spit in the face is practically calling 1-800-COLLECT-AN-***-WHOOPING.

Seriously, no man should do it. Period.

It doesnt happen all the time. Its a serious line to cross as a player. Listen to the reactions by the ex players on ESPN, etc. They get visibly angry when they talk about a player spitting on another player, its a big deal. I dont know about you but I would hit anyone that spit right in my face. Those other incidents got a good amount of press. He should have to sit out a game without pay.

YES, I think a one game suspension is in order.

Romo got fined when he did this, TO shouldnt be suspended. He'll get fined 10k or so and that's it. The league cant suspend him for this when his team is in a playoff race.

naw man the nfl will reward this clown the nba and the nfl have some goofy ways of disipling its players. they will make a statue of this joker before they suspend him but i hate it because i got spit in the face by a buttwipe in a traffic altercation 5 yrs ago. i tried to beat his face in but some bystanders broke us up.

You think if he was suspended at a time like this that he would spit in someone's face again?
Probably, but he would be given a four gamer then :evil:

That fine was pretty hefty, considering it was, what, twice the fine Sean Taylor got. Parcells will likely punish him in-house too. But when you're T.O., that's like about 1/8th of a games salary -- that's like four or five plays on the field and he's made that money back, so I don't think he'll be sweating in the den too much over this. What an ******* though. What I would give to see the Cowboys v Bears and let Owens come across the middle a few times. :hump:

He said that he spat on him "unintentionally".
