    I'm not a football fan and don't waste my time watching games. But, I did see that the team has been accused of cheating.....again. Something about deflated balls? :laughing:

    Sounds as if the team has a checkered history. :popcorn2:

    That it even happened proves that it won't stop it again. This is the Pat's second known rules violation

    Well.....the coach has come forward and denied knowing anything about under-inflated balls.

    I'm no football expert by any means, nor have I ever claimed to be one, but my money is on Brady. He's the one who has stated previously that he likes under-inflated balls. :laugh:

    didn't watch the game, and correct me if i'm wrong, but didn't the opposing team grab the ball at least a couple of times?

    I'm watching the FOX News interview right now with Brady. He's acting like a 16 yr.old kid. He doesn't know anything about under-inflated balls, doesn't know any difference between an under-inflated ball and one that is properly inflated, and doesn't know what difference they'd make anyways.

    He's just basically saying he throws balls. Hard to imagine how someone so clueless can earn so much frigging money. :dizzy:

    not many of them guys are highly educated.

    most got passing grades based solely on their ability to play the game.

    besides, deny every thing. people can accuse, but with out facts, there's no proof.

    In regards to the Patriots, I heard one guy say that the team either cheats a lot and gets caught very little, or they cheat very little and get accused a lot. :innocent:

    Brady don't care, if he deflated balls he'll get fined some pocket change, then go bang his super model wife and still play in the Super Bowl.

    They claim the balls were warm when they were inflated and lost some pressure when they were put out in the cold air

    It's probably just me and my weird sense of accountability.

    I'd like to see the Patriots banned from playing in the Super Bowl. :drinkingcoffee:

    2 pounds! Ha ha ha! 20% of pressure? Ha ha ha ha! They flunked physics, that's for sure. Or no, they got all the answers to the exams ahead of time. Yah, that's the way they edumacate college footballers these days. And they graduate with a 1.3 GPA average... D+.

    I agree, but it will not happen. Too much money (corruption/mob/syndicate) in New England.

    I can see someone showing up on Shark Tank with a new invention.

    A football warmer.........or cooler........depending on your hardness preference. :dancing:
