NFL Got Their Spies On You
Great article here from the Wall Street Journal regarding the NFL personal conduct policy and the lengths which teams will go to enforce it. I encourage you to read it all but for those that don’t have the time, this might be the best nugget from the whole thing.
The increased scrutiny has taken a toll on some players, including Broncos defensive tackle Marcus Thomas. Last year, after the policy was announced, Mr. Thomas had called his agent in a panic: He said he was convinced he was being followed by “a white man in sunglasses” who had been sent by the NFL. A league spokesman says NFL security did not follow Mr. Thomas.
How awesome is that that the NFL has its players thinking that they have their own Men In White corps following them? Maybe Marcus Thomas just has an over active imagination. He just might watch too much tv in his off time. If the man in white wasn’t one of the NFL’s guys, I wonder who Thomas actually saw? Wait a minute…paranoia, mild hallucinations…Marcus better stop smokin the herb, its messin with his mind!
