Hmmmm......... sounds like the classic non-denial denial to me. Gorilla Gold, an Idaho-based company, makes the product. It features a wax-based tackifying element designed to improve a player's grip without residue rubbing off onto a ball. Patrick Dugan, president of Gorilla Gold, would not say, as other sources have, that Manning has used his towel on the football field at times over his career. Some football players are known to have come across the product via other sports, such as golf or tennis. “We believe that Peyton Manning has been introduced to the product," Dugan said. "...We know that we have shipped specifically to certain elite quarterbacks in the league. I don't want to name names, but we know that we have, and we know the names are household, and we know they've played in the biggest games that are to be played.” Fox said his team doesn't use the towels and that he was unaware they existed until they were brought to his attention during last month's game. Asked if Manning said anything to him after the towels got banned, Fox was toweled out. "I think we've addressed the towels," Fox said. "I haven't given the towels a second thought. All I know is the league says you can't use them, so we don't."
