I'm not trolling.....but I'm definitely busting balls....I figured it's appropriate based on the constant discussion of balls

I really don't think it's possible with that much coverage. Especially with the CBS cameras there.

They certainly wouldn't egret catching the Patriots doing something underhanded.

47 + 18 = 65 high def cameras


plus more I am sure with the all 22 and news companies.

some where in the back ground is an image of the ball boy, not an owner, tampering with the ball.

Not being watched, but it doesn't mean it isn't there on film. I don't think it's possible for someone to hide in plain sight with all the footballs, deflate them, and bring them back in, no. Sorry.

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.

If someone had a towel draped over a ball, deflating it underneath the towel, you could have a camera directly on him, and not notice. In reality, it would be the same towel drape, but he would be in the background, probably slightly blurred, as the camera focused on players or coaches. Cameras only see what the cameraman is looking for.

ok, you just think it's possible, it is possible. It is not a winnable argument because we have different opinion

What about security cameras? Where's the camera man?

I would love to see 11 instances of wiping a ball down with a towel with a suspicious 2-5 second pause, with the guy's hand covered by a towel.

So, how do they see the gauge under the towel to know they've hit the magic 11psi?

The balls are in a bag until put into play.

So yeah , how hard would it be to avoid opening that bag, fishing around for each ball individually , find the hole, insert the pin, take out just enough air to have it "deflated", and not be noticed ?

Pretty damn hard, in my opinion.

You seem to know an awful lot about how this could be done. Is that how Irsay smuggled his stash into the owners box?
