08:05 AM ET 01.16 | The scene is one out of Hollywood. [Todd Haley] didn't know who else might be listening. Looking up toward the ceiling, he darted into a back hallway before hesitating. Then he turned around, going back through a door and stopping again. Haley suspected that many rooms at the team facility were bugged so that team administrators could monitor employees' conversations. Stopping finally in a conference room, Haley said he believed his personal cellphone, a line he used before being hired by the Chiefs in 2009, had been tampered with. Paranoid? ... "The level of paranoia was probably the highest that I had ever seen it anywhere," another former high-ranking staffer said.

What could Haley possibly think he's accomplishing by putting out such unsubstantiated comments?

That he wants to move on?

If his players weren't listening to him, what makes him think that his bosses thought he would say anything worth listening to?

Just because you're paranoid it doesn't mean that they ain't out to get you.
