Kyle Shanahan's bookbag was holding the Atlanta Falcons' Super Bowl playbook. It was missing for at least 15 minutes during the 45 minute Super Bowl Media Day at Minute Maid Park.
Allegedly, San Francisco Examiner columnist Art Spander had mistakenly picked up Shanahan's bag instead of his own. If there were ever a team to be held under suspicion it would be the New England Patriots based on the the Patriots' history of espionage allegations. Obviously this was an isolated incident but if the NFL was willing to investigate a poorly inflated football, this incident is not beneath the NFL's investigation standards.
Coincidentally, yesterday marked one of the first ever Data Theft or Hacking penalties in Major League Baseball as the St. Louis Cardinals were penalized two first round picks, $2 million, and has permanently banned Chris Correa from major league baseball. Correa, the St. Louis Cardinals employee, was sentenced in July and is currently serving a 46-month sentence in federal prison for hacking into the Houston Astros' internal database.
