Strange story emerges from Chiefs-Raiders game in November
Posted by Mike Florio on February 27, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

The Kansas City Chiefs worked overtime on November 7 in Oakland before emerging with a 23-20 loss. After the game, the Chiefs worked overtime in an effort to get out of town.

Vittorio Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Transportation Safety Agencies detained the Chiefs’ buses by three hours after the game, based on a belief by a TSA agent that she saw a bag of white powder fall out of the jacket of a Chiefs player.

The powder was believed to be cocaine. After the player was questioned at length by authorities, it was determined to be a nutritional supplement.

TSA agents pre-screen players on visiting NFL teams at the stadium, so that they can be taken straight to their airline gate by bus.

Tafur also shoots down the notion that the Raiders had a role in the incident. “There were no Raider players or officials anywhere around that area,” Oakland deputy police chief Jeffrey Israel told Tafur. “The only people there were Chiefs and TSA agents.”

The fact that Tafur felt compelled to obtain a comment ruling out Raider involvement makes us wonder whether Tafur’s source specifically blamed the Raiders. It also makes us wonder whether someone from the Chiefs spoon-fed the story to Tafur, who reported the news from the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

This was about the only time the Chiefs were slowed down on the ground during the 2010 season.

So when someone tips off the police on anything – they personally come out and stand and watch the search or arrest? Givemeabreak!

Funny, I thought Al Davis was the only conspiracy theorist in the NFL. Stupid media.

If it happened during W’s presidency, most of the posts would be about how this was a heroic action and the TSA is protecting us from our enemies in the Greatest Struggle in the History of Western Civilization.

If it happened during Obama’s presidency, most of the posts will be about how this is a gestapo tactic aimed at implementing a socialist/Nazi state in America.

That seems to be Dumb America’s take on the TSA and things like this.
