A Yahoo story FROM DECEMBER 1st

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The NFL is reminding teams they're not allowed to use artificial means to keep footballs warmer and softer during games.

Fox's broadcast of the Carolina-Minnesota game on Sunday showed a clip of an unidentified sideline attendant holding two balls in front of one of the heaters teams use on cold days. The temperature at kickoff for the game was 12 degrees.

Vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said on NFL Network on Monday that once the league noticed, both the Panthers and Vikings were warned of the rule against using a heater on the football to make it easier to handle during a game. Blandino also said the league will remind all teams that the practice is not allowed.
Where was the outrage?? Oh, that's right, Carolina and Minnesota suck so no one cares.

I'm posting a link to this SI article only to provide others with a good laugh.

It is complete tin foil material that borders on journalistic libel. The comments (nearly 400) are almost universal in condemning the "author". This is the most priceless section:

On one end of Gillette Stadium is a lighthouse, the stadiumís signature architectural feature. But if you sit behind the opposite end zone and look at the lighthouse, you will notice something else: An enormous television beyond the lighthouse, in the parking lot.

Officially, this allows people in the parking lot to watch TV. Is it a coincidence that you can see that TV from the Patriotsí sideline, but not from the opposing sideline, making it easier for the Patriots to watch replays and decide whether to throw the challenge flag?

Someone may have already mentioned this, I didn't read the whole thread...

But someone should ask Felger if he thinks it's possible to have a deflated football and then have it re-inflate?

Yeah. The Pats sideline also has a hidden real-life pause button, to make up for that 7 second delay while they watch TV hundreds of yards away.

Mass sterilization should START with that asshat.

I tell my youngest to ignore people that try and bring him down or demean him in any way.

I'm going to do the same with this situation. People have nothing better to do than accuse the Pats of this?

:shrug_n:

My response from now on will be "Embrace the Stupid" and nothing more. It's getting hilarious.

The NFL has released AFCCG tape of the Patriots' ball boys:

In my 4 years there my worst offense was a moved thread, and other than that never had any run ins with any mods, have been nothing but a staunch Patriot supporter, and regular member of the board. All of a sudden today out of the blue I got banned, because my opinion differed from the majority on this topic and the topic of Spygate, labeled a troll, and banned.

The reason I feel this is worth writing about is because I just don't want to invest time in another community if a dissent on opinion is enough to get you labeled a troll, irrelevant of your history, time etc, and banned without question.

To make a long story short, I guess my mindset is all NFL teams cheat in one way or another, and I don't believe we are an exception so I wouldn't be surprised if this was true. I am of the opinion that we might be capable of cheating, that I believe Spygate to have been cheating by definition, and I personally take the bad with the good, and it doesn't prevent me from being a Patriot supporter and fan.

Is that difference of opinion accepted here or is that reason to be banned?

This idiot was just on WEEI and Minehan called him a liar who is using fake sources to make up these rumors and these comments were most likely tongue in cheek comments that he ran with.

Also not one rumor has a quotation around it saying League source, this is a total hack job and he was made to look completely foolish. If you can get the audio it is worth the listen.

Here's a great article refuting each lie/innuendo, one at a time.

<header class="header"> Patriots win hurts Super Bowl ticket prices

</header>

Super Bowl tickets are cheaper than they were last year. You can thank the Patriots for that.
<section class="yom-mod " id="mediacontentrelatedstory" data-ylk="mid:mediacontentrelatedstory;mpos:1;elm:hdln;elmt:ct;cat:Related Stories;rspns:nav;t1:a3;t2:lst-ct;itc:0;sec:lst-ct;">

</section>


On average, tickets were selling for $2,879 on Monday, according to SeatGeek, a search engine that tracks online sales.


That's down 20% compared to the same day last year. And it's actually 18% cheaper than what Super Bowl tickets were selling for on Saturday, before Sunday's games decided the match-up: New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.
The price drop is mostly due to "Patriots Super Bowl Fatigue," said Connor Gregoire at SeatGeek.


The team has reached the Super Bowl six times in the last 14 years. Some New England fans may have gotten used to watching their team play from their living rooms. Others might not want to shell out the big bucks to go in person, again, especially when this year's game is being played across the country in Arizona.


"As the Patriots started to pull away during the game on Sunday, that's when the price drop started to accelerate," Gregoire said.
The cheapest ticket sold on Sunday cost about $1,600.






Patriots fans deflate SB prices :devil:
