    Default Eagles employee spits on the Cowboys Star

    An Eagles employee spits on the Star (and yet that's not the most offensive thing Philly has done)

    Spadaro spits on star

    Apparently, Terrell Owens isn’t the only person to have disgraced the Dallas Cowboys’ star.

    Dave Spadaro, editor of and an employee of the Eagles, videotaped his spitting on the centerfield star at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday before the Eagles played the Cowboys. The video was posted on the Web site, but was taken down sometime today.

    Dallas media outlets picked up on the video and one – 105.3 “The Fan” -- posted it on its Web site. Here's the link.

    “I did it all in fun and I’ve done it before with other teams in the spirit of the rivalry,” Spadaro said tonight. “It’s something I’ve been asked to do by Eagles fans. If I did something to offend somebody, I regret it. I meant no disrespect to the Cowboys organization or to their fans. They have a beautiful stadium and a marvelous organization.”

    In the clip, Spadaro -- who is not visible -- pans inside the new $1.5 billion stadium and down to the iconic star.

    “Nobody’s looking as I’m standing on the star,” he said on the video.

    Spadaro then spits on the painted star.

    “There you go, fellas” he said. “Spit on that star. I could do more. You know, Dallas kind of deserves a second one. Nobody looks.”

    And Spadaro spit again.

    A text message left with an Eagles spokesman was not responded to tonight.

    Spadaro has been affiliated with the Eagles for approximately a decade. He authors an online column, hosts a show on the Web Site and is a visible presence in the media. Before coming to the team he worked for the Daily Local in West Chester and ran Eagles Digest.

    Owens once celebrated a touchdown by running midfield and slamming the football on the star before a Dallas player knocked him down. The wide receiver was with San Francisco then, a few years before he signed with the Eagles.

    UPDATE: There's now an "Open letter of apology to the Cowboys" from Spadaro posted on In it, Spadaro says. "It was not my intention to insult the Cowboys. It was my intention to enjoy the spirit of a great sports rivalry, and I clearly went over the line and acted unprofessionally."

    It goes on: "I admit I get carried away with my love of the Philadelphia Eagles, and if this is a crime, I am clearly guilty. ... Again, I apologize to those whom I have offended by my actions."

    Check out the full letter here.

    Blah. Not really newsworthy. TMZ-esque.

    Who cares? That star gets spit on by every player (including Cowboys players) during the game inadvertently. I loved that Spadaro did it. The guy is a FO puppet and quite frankly has gotten more annoying as the years go on, but to see him do that makes me like him a bit more again. I fail to see the problem.

    We're Philadelphia, we spit, throw snowballs (even at Santa if he shows up drunk), batteries, pee on you and well lots of other things as well. If you don't like it, don't come to our stadium. (And I realize Spadaro did this in Dallas which wouldn't apply to what I just said)
