Whistlegate! Titans accuse Saints of cheating via sideline whistle.
From the Los Angeles Times sports blog:
Were the New Orleans Saints using a whistle on the sideline Sunday to mess with Tennessee Titans players?
At least a couple of Titans say they were.
According to ESPN.com’s Paul Kuharsky, Tennessee offensive linemen Jake Scott and Michael Roos said they believe someone was blowing a whistle on the Saints’ sideline late in the game, which New Orleans won, 22-17.
Scott said evidence of the chirping on Tennessee’s second-to-last drive was caught by a microphone worn by Roos for the show “Titans All Access.”
Roos told Kuharsky: “Everybody on our side heard something, we’re not sure where it came from exactly. But it sounded like from over there, and until we know more I can’t really say anything else. It’s not something that should be done but until we can have somebody look at it, we’ll have to wait and see.”
Dean McCondichie, the show’s producer, told Kuharsky the sound was “pretty loud and it was definitely a whistle.”
“The best I will be able to do [Monday] is say, ‘Yeah, there is that whistle.’ ” McCondichie said. “I can confirm it was loud enough for the Titans left tackle and several of his teammates to hear it during the play.”
