My big issue with this entire mess it why would you ask for a gauge you can buy a nice digital one for $25.00 at sports authority and not have to worry about 2 different ones.

Putting the balls under the authority of any team after it has been checked is not very bright.

But it does not change that 2 team members were suspended by the team for this. If they were innocent Kraft would not have suspended them.

Steelers of the 70s, 49ers of the 80s, Cowboys of the 90s, NY Yankees of forever

I do not recall any issues with the Steelers of the 70's rice admitted to cheating so I will give you 49er Cowboys did not need to cheat as Americas team the officials gave them breaks on calls. Yankees cheating? as in Pine tar Brett? I will give you Pine tar Pinella but I have not heard of them tapping opponents or deflating baseballs.

No no no! You're bringing that up far too early in the season. Proper context would have been the weasel excuse later after game temperatures failed to exactly match up.

Because there are posters who enjoy pot stirring and baiting people into relentless, never ending arguments for their own amusement.

It stuns me that such a simple thing as making sure footballs are inflated to the proper amount and properly handled until kickoff is so difficult for the league to set up and follow. Measure them, sign off on them and secure them until kickoff.

Something that we can agree on.


But if any posters wishes to pot stir (to alleviate some boredom)I can change my opinion. laugh

they should just fill the balls with expanding foam and they will never have to worry about pressure again ... kinda like "run flat" tires smile

better yet, just have a set number of footballs and both teams use the same ones...no changing out after every play, no changing for a special ones to kick off, for field goals, etc. Here's the balls we're using today, get over it.

seems to work in all other sports

Breast implants, now that's something that a team may be caught inflating, but never deflating.
