I'm not too sure on that. I can understand getting hit by some errant wad of spit as the players are rolling around in a pile. But intentionally spitting in another player's face would get publicity no matter what sport it is.
Spitting in someone's face has been a pretty huge insult throughout history. Very taboo thing to do in society and pretty degrading. That TO did it doesn't surprise me all that much by now. I'm much more impressed that DeAngelo Hall didn't retaliate in a violent fashion for getting spit on.
Anyways, Tom Jackson at ESPN has made some strong comments concerning this, and I happen to agree with him 100%.
