Congress is worried about cheaters. Look how they feel about steroids.

 

Ball deflators should be inquisitioned by Congress, too.

 

Wait for it, it will probably happen

 

I think the govt got involved with baseball was because anabolic steroid use without a prescription is illegal.  That becomes DEA turf, but they'll probably only go after dealers or well-known athletic figures, not the muscleman at your local gym.  In Barry Bond's case, the govt was pursing BALCO (https://en.wikipedia...ry_Co-operative) as an illegal supplier, and got in trouble for perjury in his testimony against them.

 

While deflating footballs is certainly unethical and against league rules, I don't think it's breaking any criminal laws.  Now if it was discovered that Deflategate was linked to sports fixing, then you bet Congress would get involved.

See..now that makes sense. They were softening the ball up, so Hillary can catch it.

I agree with that sentiment, but how far do we go?

 

> we go all the way to ensure cheaters never win

 

 

Do we take away the records and the wins of teams who had guys on steroids? Ones who purposely injured players? Ones who filmed the other team's workouts?

 

> yes! it's a teams responsibility to ensure no cheating occurs. where do you draw the line at cheating? I say stop ALL of it.

 

 

What do we do about those guys though? Ray Lewis was not convicted of murder, but there is a lot of evidence that he was at the very least, involved in a cover up.

 

> you let the law decide, not the NFL

 

 

What about Michael Vick?

 

> he's a scumbag and should have been kicked out of the league for life. where do you draw the line? 

 

What about morals clauses?

 

> these players are roll models for our youth, they should all have morals clauses and if they break them they get fired, you know, just like any other job you'd get fired at if you didn't do as you were supposed to.

Wow, I like it. Seems just about right. Still can't believe that individual teams were able to control the footballs. Bizarre. Were the locker room guys fired?? Hope he doesn't try to appeal.

A punishment that is more than a slap on the wrist and it's the Patriots and Tom Brady.  Goodell got it right for a change

That's a big one!

 

Brady probably will appeal, but he's busted and tarnished in the eyes of the fans.

 

I'm more of a Peyton Manning guy. That guy has integrity.

Slap on the wrist; what about Kraft the owner, and Belechik the head coach...nothing. The NFL Commissioner is good friends with Kraft. The Saints coach was suspended for a whole season for his infraction.

Kraft was fined $1 Million bucks and coach Belichick lost 2 draft picks...I think they all got punished properly.

Take one football and fill it to 12.5 PSI (league minimum)

 

Take another one and fill to 11.5 PSI

 

Now see if you can actually tell the difference.  I did, and honestly can hardly tell.

 

Agree, this is much ado about nothing...  People just want something to write about.

To the quarterbacks, it makes a huge difference. It was also noticed by a defensive back who had made an interception.

 

Aaron Rogers says that he likes them a little higher than the max because of his hand-size and grip pressure.

 

Brady likes them softer because of his smaller hand size it makes them easier to grip.

 

There have allegations or suggestions that lots of teams have tried and gotten away with custom inflating.

 

They could solve the problem by either a) Don't let teams supply their own balls and/or b) get rid of the rule. Let them inflate to whatever they like. It will only affect that one team.

Heck they should just start tossing around a bean filled hackey sack. Make them start using their fine motor skills when catching.
