NFL Security looking into incident at Schaub’s house

AP

The decision of the Houston Police Department to not send officers to the home of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub doesn’t mean nothing happened.  Something did, and by all appearances the original report from SportsRadio 610 was accurate.

The league office tells PFT that NFL Security has been in contact with the Texans and the Houston authorities.

“This is a little unusual in that we don’t normally have fans acting in this way, going to a player’s residence that sort of thing,” NFL V.P. of security Jeff Miller has said, via our friends at SportsRadio 610 in Houston.  “In this case, Monday afternoon, a vehicle pulled into his driveway, an unidentified individual yelled obscenities.  The police department is involved. We’ve been in contact with them as we normally would for anything like this. And because it is a team issue, they have a security director, we work with them.

“In this case, they’ll be working closely with the police department. But it’s going to be investigated and handled seriously by [the] Houston Police Department.”

While the tweets from the Houston Police Department seem to be a bit dismissive of the original report, the information from Miller and the Houston Police Department actually corroborate the original report.

The original report was that a fan “went to [Schaub’s] house and told him off.”  Miller says “an unidentified individual yelled obscenities.”

The original report was that another fan took pictures of Schaub’s family.  The Houston Police Department said that a “family member reported seeing a suspicious male in the driveway of the residence taking pictures.”

It’s unclear why the Houston Police Department felt compelled to make the initial report seem stronger than it was, only to then knock it down.

Maybe the authorities are simply trying to sidestep the obvious question that arises from these facts:  Why in the hell didn’t you send a cruiser to the home?

  1. These “fans” should be permanently banned from all NFL events. Get your priorities in order. It IS Texas, though, where they gerrymander school districts for football talent.

  2. Anyone that does stuff like this needs to seriously seek help. I’m as a big a fan as anyone else but at the end of the day it ain’t that deep.

  3. Stlluna. How much do they get? Please tell us, I have always wondered. I can tell u r in the inner circle

  4. FAN is short for FANATIC, but at the end of the day it is just a game and you got to let it go. Seems like fans care more about the wins and losses than the players.

  5. Oh so the Cops in Houston are bitter at Schaub too??? WOW the dude cant get a break! Cut him and Cincy will sign him as a back up…revive his career.. He’s an upgrade over Josh Johnson…

  6. This DID happen in Texas. You know… the state that gave us Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, and Tom Delay. Guess they’re as irrational about their football as they are about their politics.

  7. Too many people making too much money off the internet these days. Our perception of reality is being altered by clicks.

    is it too hard to make a phone call before we publish?

  8. Gary Kub’s was trying to put thumb tacs underneath his car tires to cause him to show up late for practice. Nice little scapegoat for a benching.

  9. Seriously? How horrible! I guess some folks fail to realize that this is a little boys game played by adult men and is for entertainment purposes. Geez, get a grip people. Those identified and found guilty should be forever banned from entering an NFL facility again!! and have permanent restraining orders against them from Matt Schaub and his family.

  10. Man, can we please remove Texas from the United States? What a messed up society.

    Can you not separate entertainment from the rest of your life? This is a person’s home, and his family.

  11. Didn’t the first report say Schaub called NFL security who then called the police? If that’s true shouldn’t he have called the police first? Probably called kubiack because he was afraid to make a decision.

    Soccer used to have a huge problem with hooligans, but they have laws in Britain to ban troublemakers from games. It seems to be working fairly well so far. However, showing up to ANYONE’S house, whether it’s a referee/ umpire, coach, or player is absolutely wrong just as it is to confront them on the street.

    The Steelers don’t have these kinds of problems.

    No fans, no problem, eh?

  14. The press ALWAYS gets in the way of things. We see this with Sandy Hook, Boston etc even this! The media is so eager to write a sensationalist story they completely throw out the first thing they hear! when we dont even know the facts!!

  15. While I don’t condone the fan’s alleged behavior, someone needs to tell Schaub that he sucks, because the coach and front office sure aren’t.

  16. There are many real-life examples of why it’s a bad idea to run up on someone’s property in an aggressive manner in Houston.

    Dude shouldn’t bother gambling. He’s used up all of his luck.

    Uh, try the biggest fan base in all of sports.

  18. Dispatch did send a cruiser, but it was intercepted and returned to the station for a touchdown.

  19. “Uh, try the biggest fan base in all of sports.”

    The Steelers?? Now that’s hilarious considering you’re not even close to biggest fan base.

  20. Propaganda as always to make Texans Fans look bad so Rich Owner Bob Mcnair can Keep Schaub and Idiots.. The Media are Fools!! They Rather Blame Fans than this Sorry Coach and QB!!

  21. Some people need to readjust their priorities. Football is a GAME! It is a fun distraction, but it seems to run some peoples lives. Very disgraceful.

  22. Sure thing about the Steelers…they obviously don’t have everyone whining about how the Rooney Rule ruining the Steelers when they were the same ones rooting for Tomlin when he held up a trophy in 2009 and took them to another one in 2011… just saying is all…

    ================================================
    No, the Steelers don’t have those kind of problems, their problems are much worse.

  24. No…. the steelers have had multiple hgh/steroid scandals and a creepy quarterback issue.

  25. When the facts emerge this will be about gambling and the fact this person lost a lot of money on the Texans
