Re: Report: NFL Probing NE for Deflating Balls

I think its propaganda to distract the Patriots more so Seattle can win then it is actually cheating, wouldnt surprise me none NE did deflate the balls, but I think its like the bounty gate ****, perfectly timed event when everyone knew the potential of the Saints going to the SB that season was shot down by Goodell, someone needs to see if Goodell is a Seattle fan, that team has certainly be babied by the NFL the last many years.

Lots of former players calling Tom out on it, that's for sure.

Of course Bellechick and Brady did this. The excuse that the temperature outside would cause the balls to deflate if every ball was under, funny how one ball didnt loose weight. Don't want punters and kickers using a flat ball. I think Jerome Bettis hit the nail on the head by saying deflating the balls benefitted the RBs nore as they would have a easier time gripping a softer ball.

Also, going with that excuse, wouldn't indys balls have been deflated as well?

Yeah, I'm starting to wonder why no one's questioning the ref's participation in this also ... they're handling the damn balls during the game & didn't notice anything amiss ... they call every other stupid infraction, correctly or not, how the heck did they miss deflated balls? Maybe they're part of the conspiracy ... wouldn't put it past 'em ... for all we know, the North Koreans might of had something to do with it in retaliation for our retaliation to their original cyber hack of Sony, .

I'm starting to get the feeling this just might be deeper than deflated balls, .
