    The moral of the story in a league that strives for parity is don't be too successful for too long a period of time. The fans of the other 31 fan bases don't like you, the media, often based in those...

    Kraft had no options other than to keep being angry and spinning his wheels. Goodell isn't going to reduce the penalty, Kraft can't sue the league and the owners weren't about to be part of an...

    Wow. Goodell plans to be both a witness and the judge? This whole thing has officially entered the twilight zone.

    Agreed. I'm not going to say Brady knew nothing about it - he likely did - but "probably" and "generally aware" hardly constitute hard evidence. Difficult to punish him without anything concrete....

    The Miami and Met trades were AA's make or break moves and an awful lot went wrong for him. Romero and Morrow both tanked, Johnson got injured and never materialized into anything, Hutch and Drabek...

    I understand the sentiment but Revis is a big reason any of them got rings.

    It's funny, and maybe it was the potential of it being a "one and done" contract, but Revis always felt like a rental...

    What he signed for wasn't ridiculous all things considered so I've got to believe the Pats offer was competitive. Mu guess is he simply wanted to return to New York. It's disappointing but, on the...

    Sticky: Revis is really going to have to want to stay...

    Revis is really going to have to want to stay with the Pats because I suspect someone - the Jets? - will make an offer that will be very hard to refuse.

    The NFL has no way of knowing with any degree of certainty that copies of those tapes weren't/aren't circulating somewhere. If they destroyed them because they revealed something damning, they'd look...

    The Revis situation is going to be difficult. The Pats will need a decision soon from him on any offer they make because how they go forward in the off season is dependent to a large extent on what...

    I remember when Montana was nearing the end of his career and people were just starting to suggest he might be the GOAT, Unitas/Starr/Staubach supporters saw it as nonsense or heresy. Once players...

    I read somewhere that in the BB/Brady era the Patriots have AVERAGED 12.4 wins a season. That means as the AFC #1 seed they had a below average regular season. Every other team in the league has...

    Seriously? We're doing this again? Manning is an incredible QB and is top five easily but they don't play to see who can amass the most yards during the regular season. They're important and a gauge...

    It's more than a dent. If the psi of each ball isn't logged and/or independently verified there is no way of knowing the starting psi of each ball. If this is the case then the readings they got at...

    Actually, your speeding analogy is flawed. Unless the rule book states that teams must present their footballs for inspection by the referees already at 12.5/13.5 psi then the league, not the...

    1st Bolded. Of course that's a common theme. Patriots fans don't want them to be guilty and that will color their perceptions. Just as those who dislike the Patriots want them to be guilty and that...

    I have no idea if the Pats cheated and neither do you. There is a lot of hysteria, conjecture and shaping the leaks, rumors and gossip to fit one's personal agenda but the people doing the...

    Who gets to decide it's "statistically next to impossible"? Sports is full of people and teams doing things that are above and beyond. In the entire history of the NFL only one team has ever gone...

    There are advantages to a slightly under inflated ball but they are miniscule. A tiny bit better control and a tiny bit better grip. The key word being tiny. There are also miniscule disadvantages,...

    The Patriots - or any other team - have no responsibility for making sure the balls they submit to the refs are between 12.5 and 13.5 if the rules state that the refs are to check the balls before...

    Actually, I love watching everyone get red faced over the Patriots. Tearing them down and denigrating them has become something of an industry ( I know, I know, because they're cheaters or Pat fans...

    I think the Patriots are guilty on some level but the level of vitriol aimed at them, particularly by the media, has been over the top. The lynch mob mentality I have seen this week makes me want to...

    Can we ratchet down the hysteria a notch or two. On both sides. Belichick could pull out a gun and shoot somebody and we Pats fans could find a way to make it self defense. And the Pat haters -...

    I'll say. Balls can lose air for a variety of reasons or be defective. All we know is that a ball - not "balls" plural - is in question and, understandably, the reason will be investigated. That's a...
