    Deflate-gate: Patriots Coach Says 'Climatic Conditions' May Have Under-Inflated Balls - ABC News

    Does he really think he can treat people like idiots and then expect them to root his team on?

    I'd love to see the Patriots get creamed.

    Yeah but the Colts football wasn't affected by his Bill Nye the science guy experiments. He came up with that theory only after those horrendous press conferences he and Tom Terrific held!

    If they cheated to get to the Super Bowl, then why do they still get to play?

    Forgive me. I know nothing about football.

    Actually, the only fact known: 11 of the 12 footballs were under deflated.
    People tend to make moral judgments based on emotion rather than objectivity.
    So, in short they are playing because there isn't any proof whatsoever Bill Belechick or Tom Brady cheated.
    However, The Seattle Seahawks were caught cheating this season, but they are playing in the Super bowl. In fact, this is the third time in three years The Seattle Seahawks have been fined for cheating. Seattle Seahawks were fined this season for cheating:
    In 2012, the Seahawks were disciplined by the NFL for violating the league’s rules governing contact in offseason practices.

    They were fined an undisclosed amount and stripped of two OTA practices for the violation, but that apparently didn’t stop them from crossing the league’s line again this year. When the Seahawks were punished in 2012, Carroll complained that it was unclear what constituted illegal contact during practices and the question has been raised by others during the last few off seasons as well.

    Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll have been collectively fined more than $300,000 for again violating the rule. Per Mortensen, Carroll was fined “at least” $100,000 and the Seahawks were fined more than $200,000. In addition, the team will lose two minicamp days during the 2015 offseason.

    Like all the rules stemming from the 2011 collective bargaining agreement, the rule barring contact in offseason practices was agreed to by both the NFLPA and the league. NFLPA president Eric Winston is now a member of the Seahawks, but was not with the team in the offseason.

    Here's a link explaining why the Seahawks were fined for cheating this year. (though again, this is a repeat offense) so Seahawks fined $300K for violating no-contact rules - NFL.com

    The Colts defender who intercepted the Brady pass knew immediately that the ball was under-inflated and reported it to the refs. Brady may not have deflated the balls himself, but it's inconceivable he didn't know they were under-inflated. In my book that makes him a cheater because he knowing used balls that were not regulation.

    Do I think this should keep them out of the Super Bowl? No! I believe they were clearly the better team. However, just as the Seahawks paid a price for cheating I believe the Pats need to be penalized, and I believe that penalty should be severe. Something along the order of the penalties they were assessed after 'Spygate'.
