Ravens Walker Calls Spitting Sunday an “Accident”


I guess Ravens “spitter” Frank Walker finally let his guilt get to him. Why else would the story below from Yahoo Sports come out four days after the incident with Steelers punter Mitch Berger? Read below and see what you think:

Frank Walker acknowledged that he spit in the face of Pittsburgh Steelers punter Mitch Berger, but the Ravens backup cornerback called it an accident. “It was just a slobber moment,” Walker said. With 43 seconds left in Sunday’s 13-9 loss to the Steelers Walker got into a confrontation with Berger, who was the holder on the extra point because according to Walker, Berger was upset when he thought Walker was trying to take out the knee of kicker Jeff Reed. Berger doesn’t believe Walker, saying the act was intentional. “I had my mouth open and was about to say something when he spit right on me,” Berger said. “It wasn’t something that happens by accident when you’re talking sometimes. There was the full noise. He made the full spitting noise.”

I gotta side with Berger on this one, you don’t just by “accident” spit in someone’s mouth. Sounds like Walker is just trying to take some of the heat off him for the incident. What a classLESS act Walker is for this!

    Amen. This dude is a loser. If he was my kid I’d give him a good thrashing. Nothine more disgusting that spitting on someone but to actually spit into someone’s mouth. Yikes! Maybe he should have played basketball instead. :0
