The NFL is reportedly investigating the use of Stickum by the San Diego Chargers based upon a towel found after their Monday Night Football loss to the Denver Broncos. Today head coach Norv Turner had this to say about the investigation:
"Nobody in this organization has used Stickum in any game," Turner said Monday. "The question involved a towel that has been used by this organization for over 10 years. It’s used by a lot of teams in this league. The towel is used to dry the balls, dry the gloves that the players wear and their arms. The league is looking into the towel. That’s about where it’s at."

So what do you think? Is this one of those things, where all the teams do it, but the Chargers just got caught? Or is this the towel company’s fault, not the Chargers? Or do you think the Chargers are totally cheating?
