EVIDENCE NEEDED FOR TAPPING CLAIMS: PROFOOTBALLTALK’s Mike Florio wrote if Haley “believes that the Chiefs are bugging rooms and/or tapping phones, Haley needs to provide chapter-and-verse evidence.” The allegation is “so inherently troublesome that we think the league should launch an immediate investigation." This is a “far bigger issue than brazenly videotaping defensive coaching signals during games, the foundation of the ‘Spygate’ scandal in New England.” If Haley is right, the Chiefs “have been violating state and federal law in the name of truly spying on their employees” (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 1/16). SI.com’s Peter King asked, “Does Haley have proof that a federal crime has been committed and his phone was tampered with, or an office he works in has been bugged so team management could spy on him and other employees?” If he has proof or something “more than simple paranoia, out with it -- and expose the team for something incredibly scurrilous.” If not, that is “a damaging rap to lay on someone, or an organization.” Haley “needs to set the record straight” (SI.com, 1/16).
