Funny how nearly everyone jumped to conclusions on this, but then in a place where the police give out mugshots of someone before they have even been found guilty of anything maybe it's not surprising.


The wow factor of this story isn't the Charger taking advantage of something they shouldn't... the wow factor is that evertone has been doing it.

The most clear message from all this, is that the league has banned the towel for the rest of the season.

The Chargers only got a slap in the hand, because in the end, it was common practice.

But if everyone has been doing it how can't this have been widely known about? It must have been a misunderstanding of some kind.

That's what I'd imagine. Remember, the Chargers weren't fined for using the towels, they were fined for trying to hide it.

The fine was withdrawn quietly.

Maybe it's just part of this period where offenses can pretty much do whatever they want.

Why would you want that? We take a great bust almost every 1st round pick and then waste three years of roster space hoping they will become Jeromey Clary.

You guys aren't the ones using a "wax like" substance on your towels! but ya got to be able to get the ball there first to even need the "wax like" substance.
