This is not going away anytime soon.

Good thing the balls were deflated so they could grip the interceptions. If they dropped them, it might have been a rout. :coffee:

Who was the "insider"? Had to be Polian, right?

What's even weirder is why is that stuff from the Colts being leaked to ESPN? I would assume they would simply have brought it to the attention of the refs in Nov. if that were the case, and they would have handled it.

But that was an away game, the pats wouldn't have any control over the balls in that situation?

I see what you did there, or not.

The QBS have their own balls now, regardless of home/away. It's the Peypey Brady rule. ROFL

Somewhere, someone is preparing some kind of cheating allegation for a post-Super Bowl XLIX world where the Patriots earn their fourth ring.

There's no way Peyton has his own balls.

It can't and as some genius in another forum pointed out earlier today, this has NEVER happened in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo, Seattle, Green Bay, Chicago, Denver...or any cold weather environment. So, we should all be thankful that we got to witness history yesterday...:dith:

Meh..it is. BTW this hack Kravitz is Irsay close.

Now there are reports that the ball was over inflated. It's a mixed up lie and attention getting that will be put to rest by the NFL soon IMO

All game balls are weighted have to be approved by the refs. Since they get to touch them.after ever play. You dont think there noticed if the balls were deflated.

BTW, I want to be clear, I am in no way saying I am even saying this is an issue. It isn't to me, my team got flat out out played. Frankly, I didn't expect my team to win (it would have been nice). I am just one of these people who if I hear a theory, I do like to think it out out loud (like air pressure differences).
