LEAGUE ORDERS TEAMS TO GET RID OF BOOZE

A league source tells us that the NFL has circulated a memo advising teams that there shall be no alcohol on team planes, in team facilities, or in team locker rooms.

It's unknown whether the memo specifically included the word "sidelines," so it still might be acceptable to spike the Gatorade.

The impact of this pronouncement will vary from team to team. Some teams already ban alcohol from the building. But plenty of guys still like to get their Busch on, and it's believed that the most recent memo was prompted by the recent DUI death of the St. Louis Cardinals pitcher whose name frankly escapes us at the moment because we pay zero attention to Major League Baseball.

Good luck enforcing that one.

I'm sure a bunch of young, spoiled multi-millionaires who are in pain after a hard day of getting the crap beat out of them won't mind not having a drink on the plane ride home. :rolleyes:

The last line of the paragraph is one of the most unprofessional things I've ever read.

Is the last paragraph for real, (link?) or is it just someone typing up some smoke?

Chiefs have been dry for years, as I understand it, so it won't really mean anything here.

This is just the set up for enforcing suspensions and money fines, you do it on the plane and get a DWI and you have even less room to stand with the players association.

think about company policies that are in the "grey areas"
