The Little Towel That's Changing the Way The World Plays


Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

The official website of this Gorilla Gold Grip Enhancer claims to be “THE LITTLE TOWEL THAT’S CHANGING THE WAY THE WORLD PLAYS.”

Norv Turner already admitted that he was not using stick-um, but he also did admit to using a towel:

“I might as well get to it right off the bat so you don’t have to bother with the questions.  Nobody from the San Diego Chargers used stickum in the game on Monday night against the Denver Broncos.  Nobody in this organization has used stickum in any game.  The question that has been asked by the league involves a towel that has been used by this organization for over 10 years.  It’s been used by a lot of teams in this league.  The towel is used to dry the balls, dry the gloves the players wear and their arms. The league is looking into the towel.  That’s about where we’re at.”

Could this Gorilla Gold, or something similar, be the towel that he is speaking of?

    WTF is the line judge doing looking for miscreant equipment? Maybe he was hoping he could see Novak’s equipment in another pee-bowing event…

      hahahahaha… trying to sneak a peek!

    Very informative. Why is this making news if it was a towel that everyone uses?

  • Pete Spinning

    So… is this stuff:
    A) used in pro football?
    B) legal in pro football?
    C) were the Chargers using it?
    .. in no particular order.

      From the description of the product, it would seem that it would be illegal to use. Norv says everyone is using some sort of towel and I wonder if this is what he is speaking of. If the towel was sticky and needs to be investigated, this fits the description. Norv also said golfers use it and this fits the description also.

    In this world of silicone gloves with extra grip I don’t see anybody ever using this stick-um stuff. I think its a load of BS that the NFL is unloading on the Chargers…

  • Nick Diaz

    If your going to ban this little towel, then ban cleats, helmets, hand talc and pads. they enhance the player’s performance (and keep the player safe DUH!). I saw a pic of Lester Hayes and he would COVER himself (dam near) with stickum. It is not the same stuff. I dont think the Chargers cheated. How do you cheat then lose? When you cheat, you are suppose to WIN.

    Doesnt its seem like the league is trying anything to make the chargers fail??!! ……maybe the N if L wants them in LA……..just saying though

    Gorilla Gold is even approved for pitchers to use on the mound in fastpitch by the NCAA, ASA, USSSA, ISC, and ISF. It doesn’t leave a residue on the ball.
