Dixie Chicks Scrub Down Bucs Locker RoomOctober 21st, 2013
This Bucs season has been shameful in so many ways it is difficult to point to the biggest embarrassment.
Perhaps it happened after the loss to the Dixie Chicks yesterday? Per WTVT-TV sports reporter Kevin O’Donnell, when the Bucs exited their locker room at the Georgia Dome, a hazmat crew entered and deloused the joint, so O’Donnell Twittered.
@ODonnellFox13: As soon as Bucs left their lockeroom at the Georgia Dome cleaning crews came in dressed in hazmat suits. Told not to risk catching MRSA. … Georgia Dome cleaning crews in hazmat suits going into Bucs lockeroom. Crew told me they had special cleaner.
Has it really come to this? Reports that Johnthan Banks had MRSA sparked a hazmat team to come in as if someone left a dirty bomb to explode? Banks was given clearance by the NFLPA and the league to play last week for goodness sakes.
Besides, the other two affected parties, Carl Nicks and Lawrence Tynes were not there. Only Banks.
Joe is starting to wonder whether this was an overreaction or a directive from the league?
