  1. I have had this argument with one of my brothers...

    I have had this argument with one of my brothers once. I think any foul during the course of a game is cheating. The flag that is thrown is the penalty for cheating. There is a rule and the player...
  2. No, the rules state that the referees inspect the...

    No, the rules state that the referees inspect the balls two hours before. But, if at some point in the game (like this game) "a home team ball does not conform to specifications, or its supply is...
  3. I think even if the refs failed to properly...

    I think even if the refs failed to properly inspect the balls, it's still cheating because the pats are still playing with balls that are not regulation size. That's like me speeding on the highway...
  4. Let's say it isn't noticeable and the Pats...

    Let's say it isn't noticeable and the Pats screwed up preparing it. That's still breaking the rules because they do not have a ball that fits the rules. Though, I think it must be noticeable...
  5. This is highly unlikely. Why would someone try...

    This is highly unlikely. Why would someone try and sabotage a team during the afc championship? Especially when this team is his employer? If someone paid him off, again which I think is highly...
  6. Wouldn't releasing 1-2 PSI take 5-10 seconds? ...

    Wouldn't releasing 1-2 PSI take 5-10 seconds? It's not much air and I'm assuming someone had a pump needle and just released some air. I think the attendant is in the wrong wether he tampered or...
  7. Why didn't the attendant pee before picking up...

    Why didn't the attendant pee before picking up the balls. Seems inconvenient to have to bring 24 footballs with you into a bathroom. And there wasn't a toilet in the ref's locker room he could have...
  8. I don't buy the idea that the attendant went to...

    I don't buy the idea that the attendant went to take a leak after picking up the balls. Why not go before you pick up the balls? That seems like more of a hassle to pick up the balls (both team's...
  9. The rules state that the team must have...

    The rules state that the team must have regulation sized footballs for the duration for the game. If they don't then they can use the other team's footballs but it must then be reported to the...
  10. Both of you are misquoting me. Since you are...

    Both of you are misquoting me. Since you are quoting him, trying to undermine what I am saying. I said, that the fact that they had under-inflated balls is evidence enough for the Patriots to be...

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000462476/article/nfl-investigation-of-patriots-led-by-jeff-pash-ted-wells

    Like I said, the investigation will be looking for a smoking gun. They won't find...
  12. And I corrected myself, saying they brought...

    And I corrected myself, saying they brought proper game balls a couple of hours before the game. That has been clearly stated by the league. But, it is obvious someone tampered with the balls...
  13. No I do understand this fully. Patriot fans want...

    No I do understand this fully. Patriot fans want some lack of evidence to bail them out. The facts are that in order to comply with the rules, the Patriots needed to have regulation size game balls...
  14. Here is the evidence. The rules state that the...

    Here is the evidence. The rules state that the balls must be at a certain PSI. The Patriots did not have balls that were in within the size stated by the rules. Therefore, since they were unable...
  15. Why is that ridiculous? Does the NFL need...

    Why is that ridiculous? Does the NFL need evidence of someone tampering with the balls? No. The Patriots did not have balls that were regulation size. That's against the rules. Doesn't matter...
  16. If the league goes and says that there is no...

    If the league goes and says that there is no evidence that the Patriots tampered with the balls, it's a BS excuse. They should be punished regardless if there is evidence or not. They are...
  17. The temperature and weather condition argument is...

    The temperature and weather condition argument is stupid. That has nothing to do with this situation, people need to stop making excuses and just accept it for what it is. If people on a forum...
  18. Anyone hoping the Pats lose anything higher than...

    Anyone hoping the Pats lose anything higher than a 2nd round pick are going to be highly disappointed. No one is going to be suspended. The equipment manager will probably be blamed, he'll probably...
  19. Ok, I actually change my stance on this. I was...

    Ok, I actually change my stance on this. I was thinking that the NFL had to prove that the Patriots tampered with video evidence or someone coming forward in order for them to punish them. I think...
  20. A lot of people here are claiming there is a gray...

    A lot of people here are claiming there is a gray area. One even suggested that the Colts paid off the Pats ball boy to deflate the balls so the Pats would get caught cheating in this game, lose a...
  21. ^That's all sorts of incorrect. Read the latest...

    ^That's all sorts of incorrect. Read the latest article on NFL.com where Jackson states that the footballs were being removed from the game in the first half because they did not meet requirements...
  22. Come on now. 11 of their balls were deflated,...

    Come on now. 11 of their balls were deflated, they cheated. They can't prove it because they won't have anyone on film and no one will admit it. There is no evidence other than common sense, but...
  23. Jackson stated that the Patriots had to use a...

    Jackson stated that the Patriots had to use a Colt's ball toward the end of the first half because they had no balls they could use. So, yes the refs noticed and took action. Jackson picked the...
  24. I would leave now if I were you too since I just...

    I would leave now if I were you too since I just disproved your argument by simply suggesting that the investigation would have been over in an hour if it was something as simple as temperature. ...
  25. I read your previous posts and it's a joke. If...

    I read your previous posts and it's a joke. If the problem was this simple I think the investigation would have ended Monday morning. Get out of here with the temperature nonsense.
