    so does The NFL and Goodell put the fix in against the Pats, so he doesn’t have to face Brady and Kraft for the trophy presentation?

    Come on – the “defense” of Tom Brady and the “56 lies the NFL told” provided by an unbiased journalist from MA who covers the Patriots?! How is HE any more credible than the NFL?

    This article “52 lies” article laughable glances over a few things……does anyone really think those “deflator” nicknames were about losing weight?……when they first questioned the guy about using that bathroom with the balls en route; he said he used a urinal, but that bathroom had no urinal in it (did he just piss in the sink by mistake?)….That first press conference after it came out, Brady stood up there dumbfounded in front of the reporters before he could get his story straight….I could go on, but sorry for having a few doubts about a story written by a Boston coloumnist on this issue. I’m just gonna sit back and think Roger finally got one right.

    Sadly, you didn’t answer her question. Forget your anti-Goodell hysteria revived for a moment and come back to reality. Forget your viewpoint on whether the rule is stupid or not. That’s what the experts and scientists weighed in on, the absurdity of the rule and on that point I agree with you. But that is beside the point…it was the rule and the Pats were caught red-handed. Period.

    Did TB and the ball boys cheat? Without question. Did Brady obstruct the investigation knowingly and willfully? Without question. Not the move of an innocent man. All the rest is just noise to try to make Goodell look bad (newsflash, he doesn’t need help). And a win in SBLI doesn’t vindicate TB, it only means he won this year (dare I say, didn’t get caught?). May this be the last post about TBs balls!

      You show your ineptitude did they cheat “without a doubt” you need to read. Explain the 3/4 colts balls that were deflated. Brady never cheated he went under oath still the only one to do that. You wrong on his obstruction as well. Read the wells. ” Mr Brady cooperated fully” He was told by wells the cellphone wasn’t needed. They had the msgs printed and the other 2 guys phones. So if Brady sent them a msg they’d have it but as wells said we have no proof linking Brady to a scheme. The cell destroyed was a ploy after gooddonkey lost and had to change tactics. Hate if you want but Brady is class and the greatest QB in HX. Before you type check your facts.

      Did Brady cheat NO! If Brady had been cheating the NFL would have dragged out the stats from the following year showing that the weather had no effect on the footballs, that all that data was lost or ignored so the NFL had it wrong.

    4. 4.4


      The Panthers were caught tampering with their footballs two years ago. They paid the small fine that was collectively bargained. Deflategate was a witch hunt, plain and simple.

      Just another science guy

      While I appreciate your enthusiasm, I think it would benefit you to review all the facts. See, the things you say are not only just your opinion, but fail at many levels to grasp the full context of each claim. There’s a reason the NFL hasn’t released their findings, or punished the Steelers this year for having the same under inflated balls. Not trying to troll you, just really suggest you read the whole set of facts, preferably while suspending your bias.

      Wow, bud, you’ve got a lot of “without questions” in there on items that are anything but “without question”.

      You have a dated and time stamped photo of Brady or any of the ball boys letting air out of the balls? Are you a mindreader that lives inside Tommy Brady’s head and knows everything he knows and does and his reasons for doing so? Then your entire post is horseshit.

      This League couldn’t even prove demonstrably that the balls were or were not inflated to the minimum required pressure.

    Good christ*^^* really? On purpose or not, this is just stupid. My oldest son lives in Boston and I’d like nothing more than to hate the pats, but shit, they’re just that fucking good. Flat balls or not. This is dumb. Go pack Go!

    Jim o’c if you weren’t so lazy sitting up on your high horse of righteousness, you would have taken a couple of minutes and clicked on the link from Bruce Allen. After reading it you will realize everything you stated is a lie and realize that your just helpeing Goddell with his propoganda

    If he HAD cheated, don’t you think his performance since then would generally be at least slightly worse? Wouldn’t ALL of the balls been significantly lower than minimum? I believe he had the balls at the minimum and some of them naturally lost a smidgen during play. And I’m NOT a Pats fan.
