The world around the Kansas City Chiefs has been buzzing this week following a report in The Kansas City Star that alleged the franchise had bugged certain rooms in their facility. Former head coach Todd Haley even said he worried the cell phone he had before taking the Chiefs job had been altered.
On Wednesday the NFL responded to the story in a statement, though not because they conducted any investigation into the matter, but rather because the Chiefs contacted the league.
“The Chiefs have notified us that these claims are completely false and no such allegations have been made to our office.”
There’s a world of difference between something not happening and not being reported. Of course the Chiefs are going to deny any wrongdoing, just as team president Mark Donovan did in Kent Babb’s story for The Star.
No matter what happened (or didn’t) with the front office and how closely they were monitoring their employees, it’s pretty clear nothing it going to come of it. Hopefully all of us as fans, and the team as a whole can move past this and focus on the offseason.
