Friday (The case of the trashed hotel room) edition: Wha' Happened?

Posted by: Michael Rand under Professional football Updated: April 19, 2013 - 11:55 AM

We're a little late to the party on the story of the hotel room being trashed during the NFL Combine, but we don't care. It's terrific. It's disgusting. And here it is, Per ESPN.com:

A trashed hotel room at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis belonged to Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison, according to league sources. Recently, Yahoo! Sports reported that a room shared by two players was left in bad condition, but did not identify the occupants. It was learned this week, multiple sources told ESPN, that the room belonged to Hopkins and Harrison.

NFL sources also told ESPN they believe Harrison is not responsible for what happened to the room. His agent, Ed Wasielewski, also said Harrison was not involved. "My client completely denies having anything to do with the hotel incident," he said. Hopkins' agent, Hadley Engelhard, said of his client: "He had as much to do with anything in that room as you did." Hopkins told FOXSports.com on Thursday night that the room was fine when he checked out.

"Luckily, thank God, my agent got my flight booked early or it really would've been questionable if I did [it] or not," he said. "My agent got my flight booked early. He told me hurry up."

Urine and feces were found around the bathroom, toothpaste was left on the mirror and partially eaten food was on one of the beds, sources told ESPN. Neither player made any attempt to clean up the mess, according to witnesses, and neither player has taken responsibility for the room. But, the NFL community is now well aware of which players occupied it.

So it was their room. It was a mess. But they didn't do it.

Maybe it was Spinal Tap?
