Chargers could lose draft pick for illegal use of Stickum

The San Diego Chargers are being investigated by the NFL for the potential use of a banned substance, and they reportedly are facing a fine or lost draft pick as penalty.

FOX NFL reporter Jay Glazer first reported on Sunday that the team was being investigated for their use of Stickum during last Monday’s loss to the Denver Broncos. Glazer says a line judge saw San Diego’s equipment man hiding the illegal substance and giving it to players. The judge had the substance confiscated and sent to the Broncos and the league.

Stickum and similar adhesives were banned by the NFL in 1981 with the “Lester Hayes Rule,” which was named after the famous Oakland Raiders cornerback who frequently used it.

UT San Diego says the Chargers are facing a fine or the loss of draft pick(s) as a potential penalty.

The new information makes me think blowing a 24-0 lead on “Monday Night Football” was karma for the Chargers trying to cheat.
