David Spadaro, the guy behind the Philadelphia Eagles’ website, grabbed headlines after videotaping himself spitting on the Dallas Cowboys' star.
The spit-tape sparked outrage among the public despite the fact that Spadaro is not a player or coach for the team. As an employee of the Eagles, he was expected to act with a level of professionalism and many felt his actions crossed that line.
Spadaro apologized for his actions, saying “As you may have seen, I went too far with my Spudcam video prior to Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Acting alone, and without permission from the Eagles organization, I walked out to the middle of the field at Cowboys Stadium and spit on the Cowboys star, and for that I deeply apologize to the outstanding Cowboys organization and the fine people there, from Jerry Jones to the rest of the team."
He added, "I won't ever do it again and I just went over the line of professionalism. The fans have really taken this thing and had a good time with it but it has been a difficult couple of days and I embarrassed the Eagles organization, I embarrassed myself and, for that, I am truly sorry."
