NFL Is Investigating The Patriots For Illegally Deflating Footballs Yesterday
How can a white, slow, 37-year old quarterback have a 65% completion percentage and a 100.6 QB rating? It’s pretty simple. #DEFLATEGATE.
WTHR’s Bob Kravitz is reporting the NFL is investigating whether the New England Patriots illegally deflated footballs during the team’s AFC Championship game against the Colts Sunday night. An NFL spokesman confirms to Newsday‘s Bob Glauber that the matter is under investigation. Deflated footballs are easier to throw and catch, especially in the stormy conditions that threatened the area. Officials caught USC illegally deflating footballs in 2012, and fined the school. Kravitz says officials took a ball out of play to weigh it, and that if the Patriots are found guilty of tampering with the balls they will lose draft picks—similar to the team’s punishment for 2007’s Spygate.
The Patriots spied on the Panthers’ practice before the 2003 Super Bowl and still only managed to win by 3, but their cheating techniques have been honed to perfection since then. Bill Belichick constantly wears a hoodie, and if the media has taught us anything, anybody who does that is untrustworthy. I guess what I’m saying here is fuck the Patriots.
