Sounds all too easy to pull of, in retrospect, and no cameras are ever aimed at any ball boys.

Stop making sense....that doesn't fly here

You guys are making something out of the Rogers story that ain't there.

Rogers said he likes them overinflated.

You're missing the part that he's complaining because he doesn't get them.

no it was reported he would over inflate and sometimes the air was let out

47 NFL films camera, 18 TV camera and countless others filming the fame on their phones and I bet each and every one of those countless people are looking for a ball being inflated to sell to TMZ


total BS and your BC prof is a colts fan and wrong.

I'll agree that it could happen.
But I'd like to know why Harbaugh can be on an NFL Films televised clip screaming about how the Steelers chain gang moved the ball to be more fortuitous for them...and it's nothing.
The Brad Johnson thing happened under Tags, who understood the concept of gamesmanship as a separate issue from something that actually was big enough to affect the competitive balance (Capgate,Broncos).

Cut the bullshit and answer the question goofy. Where the hell is there to hide in an AFCCG with cameras and microphones for NFL films and the game AND for film study are literally pointing at the field throughout the entire game? Are you arguing that the ball boy grabbed all 11 balls at once and brought them inside, deflated them, and brought them back out (or one at a time, not the point)? Or that someone snuck into the referee's locker room and deflated the balls and climbed back out through the ventilation system?

Tell me of an occasion when the ball handler was on film being watched. ...just admit that it's possible

Is it also true that the balls are supposed to checked a second time, during the half-time break? I heard that, but not sure it is accurate.

Nope.

Every decision over the last 15+ years has been for INCREASED scoring. What better manner to increase scoring than having the ball feel right in the QBs hand?

Maybe leave it up to each team as to how many PSIs of air gets into their respective balls.
Within certain parameters of course. No, Not between their legs :) but between lets say, 9PSI and 14 Psi. Or something like this.

I think you're more on track, though I think the inflation requirements won't vary that greatly.

I think the NFL has to step up for ownership of this in their finding statement. Upon further investigation the league did not realize how varied and often the manipulation of the game ball for the offense has been and continues to be. The Competition Committee will address this in the off season and further guidelines will be established if need be. As for the SB, we'll strictly follow the letter of the law as it's written now. Clearly 1 team is under the microscope in this current investigation, but it is a league wide issue as more and more information has and continues to come to light.
