DEA Conducted Surprise Inspections of Some NFL Teams on Sunday

Just a reminder, government harassment never stops.

Federal drug agents conducted surprise inspections of National Football League team medical staffs on Sunday as part of an ongoing investigation into prescription drug abuse in the league. The inspections, which entailed bag searches and questioning of team doctors by Drug Enforcement Administration agents, were based on the suspicion that NFL teams dispense drugs illegally to keep players on the field in violation of the Controlled Substances Act, according to a senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation, reports WaPo.

The teams the DEA searched included the San Francisco 49ers following their game against the New York Giants in New Jersey, the Seattle Seahawks  following their game in Kansas City, and the DEA met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Baltimore-Washington International airport.

Maybe this will cause NFL owners to think twice about their attempted cozy relationship with government., Government is a multi-headed monster, you may kiss one head of the monster, but at the same time you may get bitten in the butt  by one of the other heads.

  1. The owners don't care about the doctors. Or the players. There's a lot more of them where these came from. I bet DEA didn't harass the owners.
