Just heard Aikman on NFL channel, now praising TB and BB. What a flip-flopping hypocrite!

This isn't just about hating the Pats, it's about hating Boston, aka TitleTown! Our embarrassment of riches in the last decade and a half is the envy of every city and every sports fan in America. Dea more »

I would be shocked if there is any type of apology from the league. They'll merely say they conducted a thorough investigation as required, found no evidence to confirm exactly how the balls got defla more »

So, what about the balls for this SB? Will the Pats be allowed to keep their dozen at 12.5psi? And if they're measured at halftime and found to have dropped to 12.4, will the game immediately be forfe more »

Simple solution. All Patriots players must wear 5-lb ankle weights on both feet to negate the obvious unfair advantage of being better at football.

Think about it: 12 balls for each team, plus the 12 backup balls, plus I think it's 8 balls for kicking plays (which the refs DO control at all times, because clearly they think psi DOES matter for ki more »

Wasn't comparing roids to this, but only following the "absurd" logic of the thread, which seems to include all kinds of team and individual violations. So I think we're in agreement.

Um, how about every NFL team which ever had any player who took steroids? (Insert deflated balls joke here...)
Posted 01/21/2015 12:03:47 EST
I can see how an under-inflated ball might help a bit in catching and holding on to the ball. So why would one out of twelve NOT be under-inflated? My fear here is that IF the Pats did indeed tamper w more »

MLB channel says Cubs are making last-minute grab at David Ross, trying to steal Lester's favorite catcher to cement their position.

Knowing that we still need two top-level SP's, it's nice to have so many quality players to use as trade bait. Ironically, it could also weaken our position bargaining against certain teams. Any poten more »

Why was Lester still pitching in the 8th,closing in on 100 pitches? It's not like he had a shutout going. Why not bring in a fresh arm when it was 7-3 and they had all the momentum? Felt like Grady Li more »
