Deflated balls... how stupid can it get. Yes, I'm pretty confident at least one ball was less than full, otherwise this investigation wouldn't have been launched, but as a d-bag move? Nah, you have the refs handling the ball constantly, you have professional players handling it all the time. They would know long before it would impede their ability to catch, that it was not at correct levels. It is their job to know the ball inside and out. European Football players can pretty much tell you instantly if a ball isn't at the correct pressure, I would be surprised if an American Football player couldn't do the same. And with that many refs on the field... I would say this should be renamed into "Ballsgate" as NE would have balls the size of New England and an overinflated
(honhonhon) opinion about their of ability to hide it.
Just to be clear, NE should be punished as this is in fact a serious issue, and even incompetence in this shouldn't be allowed. But compared to the old school 'opponent's ball in the freezer' this is peanuts.
