RMU Alum Uncovers a Sticky Situation
Looks like the San Diego Chargers like to play “old school” football—as in pre-1981 football. That’s the year the NFL banned the use of Stickum and other sticky substances to aid in catching the ball.
During Monday night’s catastrophic collapse to the Denver Broncos, Line judge and Robert Morris University alum Jeff Bergman ’77 caught the Chargers sticky-handed, so to speak.
Bergman, who has refereed for more than four decades, including 21 years in the NFL, caught a San Diego equipment manager concealing clear tape inside of the team’s hand towels. If it’s proven that the Chargers were cheating, they could be fined and even lose a draft pick.
But we’ll have to see if they can make the charges (ahem) stick.
