    Tom Brady should have told these idiots he had no idea how the 2 PSI was missing, but it doesn’t make any difference because “I can throw a football through a tire at fifty yards with 8 PSI or 16 PSI” MIC DROP…

    Thank You Czabe, Im a Pats fan and everytime they succeed someone starts up a controversy, actually there is always controversy from the nfl. I don’t see that changing until Goodell gets canned and Sports writers stop doing their intership at the National Inquirer. OUT

    If it were such a big deal, seems the league would keep the balls in the control of officials after checking them, NOT give them back. New NFL jobs opening up in 2015 season, 2 at every game …. Ball Boy Monitor. What a joke.

    Normally I agree with Czabe, buty you all are missing the point. If there isn’t any benefit to doing it, they wouldn’t do it. It doesn’t matter if the score was 145-7. That is beside the point. They tried to gain an advantage before a ball was snapped by going outside of the “rules.” That is called cheating. You don’t think this is the first time?

    So if you ain’t cheatin’ you ain’t trying? It’s only cheating if you get caught?

    Well, Favre only fucked the Packers up for one of his two seasons with the Vikes. And, lest we not forget, his glorious, albeit completely foreseeable, pick to the Saints when they were in FG range of going to the Super Bowl.

    It was also pretty cold out there at game-time. When your hands and fingers get cold, you lose a lot of tactile sensation and fine motor movement. It would be very difficult to notice a small pressure difference. 2 pounds of pressure is only a 15% difference, and with benumbed senses it would likely not be enough of a difference to notice – especially when you are trying to concentrate on reading the defense and calling appropriate plays and such.
