With storm clouds gathering around first-year Chiefs coach Todd Haley, a fan who attended Sunday’s game between Cleveland and Kansas City now claims that Haley fired off a middle finger in the fan’s direction.
KSHB-TV in Kansas City, an NBC affiliate, has the entire story, video style.
(After watching it, we had a strange urge to give KSHB-TV sports director Jack Harry the finger.)
Though the fan’s account is persuasive, the story doesn’t include Haley’s side of things. We’d like to know whether Haley admits to the behavior — and whether one of the many folks who now carry in their pockets a Swiss Army knife of digital communications managed to capture an image of Haley’s alleged salute.
We’re not saying Haley didn’t do it. We just think that, given the potential consequences of such conduct, we’d like to know whether Haley admits to doing it, and whether there’s any corroboration of the fan’s account.
