Spokesperson: The NFL Has No Policy On Urination

NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello told New York's Daily News the league has no policy regarding players urinating on the sidelines, an issue that drew headlines Sunday as CBS cameras caught Chargers kicker Nick Novak relieving himself late in San Diego's loss to the Denver Broncos.

When this occurs, the player has been shielded from public view and there have been no issues with it [...] If a player goes to the locker room, he may not be available when his team is counting on him to be on the field.


Novak told the San Diego Union-Tribune he usually pees "two-three times a game" and that most players heed nature's call during games.

If true, it's a surprise ever-present TV cameras don't catch players in their time of need more often.
