Super Bowl Champs

No Booze In Winning Locker Room

... Says NFL

Exclusive Details


The winner of Super Bowl XLVIII is NOT allowed to party with champagne ... or beer ... or any other form of alcohol ... so says the NFL.

TMZ Sports has learned ... unlike the MLB (or any other major sport), the NFL has a very strict policy against booze in the locker room ... which means, NO POPPIN' BOTTLES!!

A rep for the league tells us ... the rule goes all the way back to the 1960s and the NFL has decided to continue to enforce it because it's "not the right image" for the league.

When we asked what would happen if someone got caught smuggling in an alcoholic beverage ... we were told simply, "it doesn't happen."

Seems a bit misguided considering most of their employees are ex felons. so what is a bit of alcohol after they win hardly anything damagaing or incriminating!

Just My Opinion    

Not the right image for the league? Too late for that, don't ya think? Look at your almost nude cheerleaders.
Now there is news out that a mag wants them for a "tasteful" but not all the way nude shots in their mag.
Did they do this type of thing back in the 60's too?

So, I guess the "right image" is a bunch of gun toting thugs making it rain in strip clubs.

No booze, but crack, weed , hookers etc...that's ok. The NFL has turned into a circus freak show .

The Broncos will have plenty to drink when they get home. The Shehawks will need to drink after the game tho.
