    Does ANYONE believe that BS sham press conference and the lies Tom Brady spouted about not being able to tell the difference between an inflated and a relatively deflated football? I don't play that often, and I CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE.

    Even Troy Aikman called Brady out.

    And who is hotter, Aikman or Brady?

    They say that Tom's started taking Cialis now, to help with his soft balls.

    Not really a football fan. But I find this whole situation funny and fascinating at the same time. icon_lol.gif

    Why didn't Brady have to be present in the hospital for his kids' birth ?

    Bill Belichek taped it for him.

    It seems likely that he cheated. (Or maybe he has just suffered from so many concussions that he doesn't know what happened either.)...icon_confused.gif

    I wonder if this will be resolved before the Superbowl, and what the resolution will be.

    Lol the referees put the ball in play at the beginning of the game and set the ball on the line of scrimmage every play. There is no proof of who did it or how it happened. This is a total b.s. story that is only such a big deal because they needed a big story around the superbowl. With all the thugs in the nfl people are really setting their sights on Tom Brady who is a good person and a great role model. Can obviously tell some of you have probably never touched a football in your life let alone any sports ball. A small amount of p.s.I. doesn't make a huge noticeable difference and Brady likes the balls at 12.5 which is a legal number. Doesn't matter how inflated or deflated the balls were patriots would have whooped ass regardless. They practice with balls in the worst possible condition in order to be ready for foul weather.

    This is tinged with racism....

    The big problem with the NFL is that its players have brain damage, which likely exacerbates any violent or troubling behavior.

    I just can't seem to get too excited by all this. I don't care for cheating in any game but this just seems pretty small, if it even happened deliberately. Aikman simply said that he can't imagine the ball boy doing this without the Quarterback's knowledge. Which may be reasonable but not necessarily true in this case. Plus it had no impact whatsoever on the game. Brady actually played much better in the second half after all the balls were at regulation pressure. Again, absolutely no impact on the game. I guess we'll find out in time but not until after the Superbowl. And I don't have a problem with the NFL deciding that it is irrelevant to the Colts game and thus the Superbowl so they backburnered the investigation during the run-up to not interfere with preparations. Sensible.

    Cold weather actually could cause deflation. It happens to my car tires regularly, after a cold night. But to lose 2 pounds of air-pressure that quickly makes me wonder. But I don't think it's highly significant, and wouldn't make that much difference anyway. I've always thought of Tom Brady as an honest guy, and a good sportsman. Now Bill Belichek......I'm not too sure about him, if he thought he could get away with it.

    I don't think anything will be resolved BEFORE the Super Bowl. By their rules this seems to be, if true, a more minor infraction (e.g., only a monetary penalty is in play, not revocation of the win).

    I too think there's some orchestrated hype for a S B storyline and narrative, which translates into $$$.

    Isn't that a contradictory statement? The pressure "doesn't make a huge noticeable difference" BUT "Brady likes the balls at 12.5"

    Not 13, the more common pressure in the middle of the legal range, but 12.5 psi, which is at the minimum. Apparently Brady must think there IS a difference, and he is indeed cognizant of pressure effects upon a ball in play of just .5 psi.

    Actually I didn't say anything about any specific race or people. The word thug could relate to somebody of any race. Are you trying to say only a certain race of people can produce thugs? I think you just said that because I made a good point. I played for 10 years and have post concussive syndrome and still own up to my own actions and am not a violent person unless need be haha.

    They are actually looking into an employee that handles the equipment and there is some good evidence pointing to him. There is however, no evidence that says Brady knew anything about it and he actually performed better in the second half when the balls were at regulation.

    Yeah, something about this locker room attendant disappearing with a number of the balls after their pre-game inspection. His actions, until he went behind a closed door, being caught on a surveillance camera.

    If true, what business did he have taking the balls away and out of sight, when they were ready for play? That itself may have violated NFL rules, by invalidating the inspection protocols.

    If he's the one who deflated them (and we know they were in fact under-inflated after the initial inspection), who gave him those orders? A locker room attendant (I've also read his job described as Asst. Equipment Handler) doesn't take it upon himself to do that, without being instructed by a higher-up, or perhaps the quarterback.

    Sorry, but the Pats got caught red-handed. Whether Brady played better in the second half than the first, when the balls were at correct pressure, proves little. There are too many other variables in the game that would account for a better second half. The question is whether Brady or the management THOUGHT deflation would give him an illegal advantage, in violation of the game rules.

    Brady is the MAN/Hotter!

    He lied!!

    However, it's the NFL fault. Why? They need to have the Referees manage his balls and not allow him to touch his balls!! LOL
    Drama unfolds here in Phoenix this weekend. Cocktails by the pool anyone???

    I'm with the group of people that think this is just a grab for attention from the media to get hyped up for the Super Bowl.

    Also Brady, when he doesn't have a mullet, is hotter.

    And I hope the Seahawks win on Sunday.
