Sport's Spitting Scandals

Romanowski Spits on Stokes

During the 1997 NFL season, Broncos linebacker Bill Romanowski spit in the face of 49ers wide receiver J.J. Stokes after Stokes confronted Romanowski for pulling on his groin in a post-play pileup.

Both the cameras and referees caught the incident, but the ref decided to let it go. Stokes was visibly stunned, Romanowski indifferent.

It wasn’t until after the game, when both fans and players expressed their outrage at the incident, did the league fine Romanowski $75,000.
