Lisa McCaffrey shared “a bit insider info” in regards to the San Francisco 49ers’ fire alarm debacle, when players were woken up abruptly by a false alarm at their Las Vegas hotel Thursday morning.
Lisa — the mother of 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, who’s preparing to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 2024 on Sunday — explained why she believed it was “an inside job” on the team hotel.
The 49ers and the Chiefs are staying at hotels on the outskirts of Sin City before the Big Game is played in Las Vegas for the primary time on Feb. 11.
“A bit of insider info, they did have the alarm pulled at 6 a.m. on the hotel,” Lisa said in the course of the latest installment of her and Ashley Adamson’s “Your Mom” podcast, which was filmed live from radio row Thursday at Super Bowl 2024.
“100% [it was an inside job] because there was no emergency supposedly … [it went off] for 25 minutes,” Lisa said.
“Who do you’re thinking that did it? Should we name names?” Adamson asked, to which Lisa replied: “I don’t know … Their hotel is big-time lockdown, so I don’t think it was a fan infiltrating. I bet it was perhaps an worker from Kansas City.”
That’s when Adamson joked: “We’re going to get the worker list at every hotel and convey them on the podcast.”
Lisa quipped: “Actually that’s form of a great idea. Where are the Chiefs staying? I’m kidding, I’d never… Kudos to them, that’s smart.”
Adamson chimed in, “I bet it was one in every of the mothers,” and Lisa replied: “Good for her, she’s smart.”
The engineers on the hotel said it was a false alarm and that no person was forced to evacuate, in accordance with ESPN.
Later that night, Lisa and her family, together with McCaffrey’s fiancée Olivia Culpo attended NFL Honors, where the All-Pro running back was named AP Offensive Player of the 12 months.
McCaffrey was also suspicious of the situation.
“I believe there’s no way it’s random,” he said Thursday during players’ final meeting with the media before Sunday’s game. “It’s a part of it. It’s just more wood thrown on the fireplace.”
Star defensive end Nick Bosa agreed with McCaffrey, but explained this wasn’t the primary time something of the type has gone on before the Super Bowl.
“I’m sure any person did it,” Bosa said. “It form of jogged my memory of Philly once they had this construction occurring outside. It was early within the morning they usually were like demolishing a bridge right outside of our hotel. We haven’t had the most effective luck. But no excuses.”
Lisa’s comments got here after she made headlines last week talking in regards to the pricey suites at Super Bowl 58 and noting that the McCaffrey family can’t afford a personal box.
When Culpo tried to buy a set, McCaffrey put a stop to it and said he won’t have his family members pay to look at him play.
The 49ers have handled quite a few things while preparing for Super Bowl 2024.
The 49ers weren’t pleased with the sphere conditions of the practice fields at UNLV this week, and explained that the surface — which is sod laid over a synthetic surface, per ESPN — is softer than standard.
Super Bowl 2024 kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.
