Re: Patriots' Tom Brady suspended 4 games

I still think it's too bad the NFL has never measured another team's ball pressures during a halftime on a consistent basis to give us a benchmark. After all the hub-bub, I finally see some actual data put out on the actual ball pressures.

One of the biggest mysteries that surrounded the "Deflategate" investigation was just how deflated the footballs used by the Patriots during the AFC Championship game were when measured at halftime.

An initial report from Chris Mortensen of ESPN said 11 of the 12 game balls "were inflated significantly below the NFL's requirements." He added that the "footballs were inflated 2 pounds per square inch below what's required by NFL regulations." Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network later contradicted that report saying, "One was about two pounds under. Several were about a pound under, and several more were just a tick below 12.5 PSI."

Now we know the real answer.

According to the NFL's report, during the pre-game inspection, most of the Patriots' footballs were found to be at 12.5 PSI, the minimum allowed by the NFL. Two tested below 12.5 and were raised by game officials up to the 12.5 level. All of the 11 game balls were remeasured twice at halftime by separate officials.

Of the 11 footballs, seven were found to be between 1.0 and 2.0 PSI below the 12.5 minimum on both measurements. Two other footballs were found to be more than 1.0 PSI below the minimum on one measurement and between 0.5 and 1.0 PSI below on the second measurement. The two remaining footballs had PSI levels less than 1.0 below on both measurements.

Only one football (No. 7) measured above 12.0 PSI and that was on just one of the measurements.

That could change as appeals are underway as TB could get it dwindled down to two games. By now and week 1.

Re: Patriots' Tom Brady suspended 4 games

Living in New England it is alive on the airways and every view point from around the world is pouring in,

But one struck me as the most logical reason not to hand over his phone records

Can you just imagine the personal text between Gisele? What little personal secrets does she have for firing up here man before the game and what possible rewards awaited him getting to the super bowl.

If a guys texts to his mother is in the report then could you just imagine what a stir Toms and Gisele text would have caused.

Oh that would have been leaked in a heart beat. Infiltrator gate porn spin offs or ever 100 Shade of Grey would be hitting the theaters next Christmas based on these texts.

See there in lies the issue. they wanted them all not just texts related to the case. that my friends requires a warrant. I have read the report and there is no way they could get a warrant in any court of law with the weak case they had. Unless they bought the judge

On the topic of balls. why did the NFL include all the Pats Balls and just include 4 Colts balls? Did they get kicked in the head and stop testing colts balls? Or is it they tested all them all and found that only 4 supported their case and the other 8 damaged it?

This report is a reject from a swiss cheese factory. way too may holes and mice droppings to even be considered valid.

Roger is going to be made a fool of again and drag the league through the mud. add in the vets for money commercial profiteering and there is and never has been a bigger disgrace to NFL than this weasel.

Operative phrase there, my friend, operative phrase, ... great point on why TB didn't hand over the texts ... in that situation, I wouldn't have either and would have required them to obtain a warrant, #shrug.

I didn't realize they only used 4 Colt balls in comparison, WTF? How is that considered a legitimate control group to conduct a comparison on?

None of this (or any of the other "investigations") Goodell has conducted would stand up in a normal court of law. Good thing the NFL is a private institution, RG is king and he can render justice as he sees fit, .

If Brady takes Vilma's advice, this is indeed gonna' get ugly for the NFL ... again, .

Good. Welcome to the club of Goodell striking a pinata. Even if he completely misses, it's counted as a direct hit with a samurai sword.
