In response to JulianIncredelman's comment: So, folks, the game is almost upon us and guess what I did this week to help our D prep for the Seahawks offense? I ran the read option plays against the more »

Ravens are the worst. Second worst are Denver's current uniforms (old orange ones were not too bad). A more distant third worst but still bad being the Titans. Titans uniforms are pretty much just more »

Doyle has openly admitted that he hates the Patriots. Admitted that he hates Belichick. It is personal with him. He has no more credibility than any garden variety internet troll from Indiana.

Great piece. I would recommend it to anyone. Too bad that critics aren't interested in facts. It's way easier just to confirm their biases.

Been saying this the whole damn time. They didn't use a gauge because a psi here or there does not matter. The refs signed off on them because they were good enough. The balls were playable, period more »

I ran the same simulation. Entered the bathroom at 12:08:15, came back out at 12:09:54. That is a 1 minute, 39 second spread... 99 seconds. That is not rushing around. Longish pee, average to belo more »

Refs did not use a gauge to check pressure. I'd bet on it. I'm sure a few use a gauge here and there but I'm saying pretty much every ref, especially the vets who have inspected thousands, just chec more »

Sounds bad at first but there is a finite period of time between ball inspection and the game. i'm sure all angles were covered and if there was any video evidence of wrongdoing as it relates to the more »

The tide will never completely turn. The Pats could be proven completely not guilty of any wrongdoing but that's not as interesting so if the truth gets reported by the few outlets that think it wort more »

This is that I've figured all long. Teams hand the footballs to the officials for inspection before the game. Refs check them out to make sure there are no major problems. Laces, spin it to make su more »

I would like to see them work out a way to get Gronkowski matched up on that corner who said he wasn't that good.

Anyone see the movie Nightcrawler? It's decent. Anyway, it isn't based on anything in particular but it's kind of a slam against the journalistic standards of today. God only knows what the media m more »

Remember this: Every other team may violate rules and do it worse. That doesn't matter because no one cares about their indescretions. It's all about the Pats because Patriots stories have legs. M more »

I agree. I got a speeding ticket when I was 19. Figured that one minor slip up meant I was a bad apple and just gave up on life from that point on.
Posted 01/21/2015 11:06:00 EST
Of course they can feel the difference. It isn't strange. The officials didn't view it as an issue. This was akin to doing 60 mph in a 55 mph zone, or jaywalking. Technically against the law but m more »

From what I understand, the standard punishment for this is a $25k fine. Peanuts in the NFL world. I agree with your overarching point.

My sources tell me that Tom Cruise is an alien and that the Kennedy assassination was a suicide. I should get a twitter account and become a real, live journalist like Mike Freeman. We have the same more »

The NFL will waterboard a confession out of the ball boys if necessary. It could be another Gitmo. The NFL is not bound by the rules of the Geneva Convention.
Posted 01/21/2015 09:19:59 EST
I find it hard to believe that the officials could not tell that the balls were underinflated, especially if 11 of their 12 balls were. They are handling these footballs all the time. I'm a cyclist more »

You forgot, it also implies that there's a double standard. No one cares what anyone except the Patriots does. Doesn't matter if every QB in the history of football played with a ball outside of reg more »

So after a blowout loss, a drug addicted booze bag owner who's never seen the field and with a history of bad decision making says the Pats violated an obscure rule with no actual evidence, and the me more »

No one is perfect, but Look at the Colts' last two games. Gomer's ego wouldn't allow him to do what Brady did. Brady does what it takes to win. If that means leaning on the run game for lesser stat more »

This says two things. One being that having that kind of imbalance is not really a formula for success. The other being that if there is one guy great enough and capable of making it happen it's Brady more »
