The NFL is investigating whether or not the San Diego Chargers used a banned substance in their recent loss to the Denver Broncos.
No, the banned substance isn't steroids or anything like that.
It's a sticky thing of goop or tape that receivers put on their gloves to help them catch the ball better.
When he refused to hand over the towel, the ref made him empty his pockets and found skin-colored or clear tape.
They face either a fine or losing a draft pick!
The Chargers issued a statement that said:
"[We are] aware of the inquiry and are cooperating fully with the League."
They ended up blowing a huge lead and lost the game 35-24.
Cheating your way to a loss is pretty HIGHlarious.
Also, it's not cool because cheating is unacceptable.
Cheaters never prosper!
