Have you read the report? or is your hatred blinding you? The NFL knew about that whole thing and set it up so that the balls were tested. Did you read the text messages? They also said that they were gonna pump them up like "watermelons" and "rugby balls". The trainers have to inflate/deflate the balls and then give them to the refs. The refs then check them and fill them up to the regulation level. Also funny how walt anderson says he doesn't remember what psi they were or what gauge he used. Also that mort report of 11 of 12 footballs being down 2 psi was completely wrong as stated in the report.
I've seen all the info there is to see. They were underinflating balls. The NFL isn't out to get the Patriots or Tom Brady in any way, shape, or form. Was the NFL out to get the Patriots after the tuck rule in 2001? Why would they be? Goodell is buddies with Robert Kraft. Tom Brady is one of the biggest money makers in the league. The attempts to hide and play ignorant are even more signs pointing that you did something wrong, whether you admit it or not.
I don't have blind hatred of anything. I can't stand their team or their fans or that entire area of the country, but I wouldn't be mad at them if they weren't always in the news for doing something that is against the rules.
The worst part of it is they didn't need to do any of this. Brady played great with regular balls after halftime against Indy, and he was surgical against the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. It's the principal of it. The deliberate attempts, over and over again through the years, of the Patriots team and coaching staff to attempt to skirt the rules, to be bigger than the game.
