Good job Dave!!!
It has been reported that 11 out of 12 Patriot footballs were “significantly” under inflated in the AFC Championship game when The Patriots “defeated” the Colts.
This is significant for many reasons. It is league rules that the balls be inflated between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds per square inch and weigh between 14 and 15 ounces. All the balls on both teams were inspected and approved before the game.
Then it started raining in Foxborough, hard.
D’Qwell Jackson of the Colts intercepted a pass from Brady and noticed that the ball didn’t feel right so he reported it to his coach. After investigation the NFL found that 11 of 12 Patriot footballs were severely under inflated due to league standards. The interesting part about all this is that the balls passed pre game inspection so it is obvious that they were deflated afterwards.
Now, I know what some Pats fans will say, “the weather effects the balls”, which is 100% true. But Answer me this, why didn’t it effect the Colts balls that drastically?
If any of you have ever played football or even threw passes in the rain then you know that a deflated ball offers more grip for the QB and it is also easier to catch for the receivers.
My questions are, if a LB can notice that a football is under inflated after touching it once, then why didn’t Brady notice it? He handles footballs every day of his life. He does not have to practice tackling, running, catching, kicking, or blocking. I thinks it is fair to say that he knows what a properly inflated ball feels like, so why didn’t he notice it? My opinion is that he knew the balls were deflated and simply didn’t care because he knew it was giving him and the Patriots an advantage. After the whole substitution scandal where Baltimore was stating the Patriots were being “deceitful” with their subbing patterns, Brady was on record saying “Hey Ravens, why don’t you study the rule book?”
Well Tommy Boy, looks like you need to brush up on it as well because you had absolutely no clue the balls were altered right??!
11 out of 12 balls people!!! OBVIOUS CHEATING!!
I am going to assume that Mr. Kraft had no prior knowledge of this. So if I were him I would feel ashamed, appalled, shocked, mad and down right embarrassed.
You couple this with “spy gate” and it brings a whole new light on the New England Patriots. What else have they been doing that they just haven’t been caught for?
If I were the NFL commissioner, I would make a huge example out of Belichick and ban him from coaching much like he did Ray Rice until he won a grievance, I would disqualify them from the SB and let the Colts play in it, strip them of their 1st, 2nd, & 3rd round draft picks for the next 2 years, I would fine Robert Kraft, not like that would hurt because the man is loaded but I would still do it. I would also do another investigation into who had knowledge of the deflated balls because I guarantee you that at least Brady, Belichick, & Edelman knew about it.
At the very least I hope all these shenanigans keep Brady and Belichick out of the Hall Of Fame. There is no room for that on the football field or in Canton, Ohio.
Way to keep it classy New England, Way to keep it classy once again…
