    (02-25) 23:50 PST Indianapolis - -- Kansas City's 23-20 overtime loss in Oakland on Nov. 7 was a hard one for the Chiefs to leave behind. Oakland police confirmed Friday that the Chiefs' buses were detained for nearly three hours after the game after a baggie containing a white powder was found in a Transportation Security Administration screening area at the Oakland Coliseum.

    Although Chiefs coaches and players maintain that the bag was already on the ground near the bus and "appeared stepped on," a TSA agent said she saw it fall out of a player's jacket pocket before the screening process.

    The TSA checks visiting teams out after NFL games on the east side of the stadium so that they can drive right to their airline gate.

    Once the TSA agent reported the baggie - full of what was suspected to be cocaine - to her supervisor, the Oakland Police Department was called in.

    "The TSA agent then walked down the aisle of the bus and ID'd the player," Coliseum assistant general manager Ron Little said. "He denied having the packet or even a jacket."

    Oakland police questioned the player at length before determining that the powder was a nutritional supplement and not cocaine. No arrests were made.

    "I have never seen anything like it in my 10 years doing this," Little said.

    And while some conspiracy theorists might think the Raiders had a hand in keeping the Chiefs at the stadium, Oakland Police Deputy Chief Jeffrey Israel said that isn't possible.

    "There were no Raider players or officials anywhere around that area," Israel said. "The only people there were Chiefs and TSA agents."

    The Chiefs are going to be a top team in the AFC. They were last season.

    They have a good crew of young players.

    Matt Cassell is a hell of a QB and he can put himself on the top list of QBs I think.
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!
