Police Save The Day As Refs Leave Kicking Balls, Gauges Behind Prior To Pats-Chiefs Game
After all of the unnecessary drama brought about by the NFL during the Deflategate saga, it appears the leagues officials still can't be trusted to take all of the proper precautions in ensuring equipment security.
The latest example of buffoonery displayed by the league's referees can be traced back to last weekend's divisional round game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs.
As first reported by 98.5 The Sports Hub's Scott Zolak, it appears that the crew of officials assigned to that particular game left the kicking balls and gauges used to check the air pressure of the game balls at the Boston area hotel they were staying at.
Now, further reports are coming out that say the Massachusetts State Police helped bail those lazy incompetent officials out.
Yest, that's right. According to State Police Spokesman David Procopio, the crew alerted the Hyatt at Logan International Airport that they had left the equipment behind early that afternoon. From there, Procopio said that State Police Detective Lieutenant Thomas Coffey brought the equipment to the stadium about an hour prior to game time.
So there you have it. Another flub by the NFL. Another example of incompetence by the league. For now, we'll just have to take bets on what they'll screw up during championship weekend.
