Default Deflategate?

I don't believe Tom Brady. Those good looks and dimpled chin can only get you so far.

Complete non issue IMO. Pats are hated, whatever, I get it. Every team in the league does not give two shits what their QB does with the ball - overinflated/underinflated. Brady told Harbaugh to read the rule rule book, and Harbaugh got pissed, and alerted the Colts that Brady's balls may be on the low side. There was never any issue leading up to the game as some reports have stated. Does anybody really think that the league said something and the Pats ignored it, come on. If they had any proof whatsoever that someone deflated the balls, Brady would have never said what he said, especially after the Spygate nonsense. These refs handle the balls all the time during games and never have an issue. And spare me with this integrity of the game BS…

They checked the balls at halftime and fixed them, then the Patriots came out and put a beat down on Indy so is it really an issue? Really, I couldn't care less about the Pat's although Tom's husband is pretty hot.

Whole thing just reaffirms what a joke the NFL is. Seriously, why does each QB get to choose the ball he uses? Refs should show up and give them the damn ball to throw around and tell them to stop acting like sissies.

I will say that the fact that the league had not talked to Brady as of that press conference was the only thing that surprised me.

I could really care less about Brady's balls. Maybe they were a bit on the low side, but we all know that temperature can play a large part in whether the balls are high or low. and if he had done a better job of keeping his balls out of the hands of the wrong guys, this wouldn't even be an issue

It's easy for a person who has convinced himself he doesn't cheat to say he's not cheating. My issue was that the answers were very lawyerish, with lots of wiggle room.

'I didn't alter the balls' [...just told so and so exactly how I like them...]

etc,

In addition, the Mortenson report was never confirmed by the league, so it's just speculation that the balls were underinflated by 2 p.s.i. The league has been very silent on the issue after that initial leak.

Not that I care one iota, and I'm from mass. The best thing about the superbowl will be the empty slopes around here!

It was funny listening to BB talk about Brady's balls until he caught himself and switched to footballs, lol
