Last month Cedar Posts wrote about Chief Monroe's bozo idea of having on the clock CMPD officers participate in a Frisbee Football tournament.
A week later we reported that the tournament had been scraped. Last week WFAE's Greg Collard posted the following very interesting footnote and discourse with CMPD's Rob Tufano:
Still waiting for a Frisbee football answer
Earlier this month, WFAE reported on the number of injuries CMPD officers have suffered in the department’s Ultimate Frisbee football tournament. The department proceeded with the tournament even through the city’s risk manager advised against it because the city would be liable for injuries.
A few days after our story aired, a blog called Cedar Posts and Barbwire Fences reported that CMPD canceled Frisbee football, but didn’t name its source(s). (See CP's Note Below.)
We’ve tried to find out for ourselves. The championship game was scheduled for Jan. 18th (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day). CMPD public affairs officer Rob Tufano told WFAE the game was canceled. That seemed odd because it was a nice, reasonably warm day.
The rest of Greg's entry and the really good stuff is here.
Note: Cedar Posts is often unable to name names as most CMPD employees understandably fear for their jobs. Also in many cases tips come to via an anonymous email. We protect our sources however, we will in the future adhere to the long standing tradition of using phrases like "unnamed sources" or "a source close to" or "spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the subject" to identify sources we are unable to name.
