Even if someone in the Colts did tell Kravitz this, how is telling a reporter factual information reason for discipline? Is Reiss positing that if Kravitz never broke the story the NFL was investigating the Pats that no one would have broken it?

If it's factual information and there's nothing wrong with telling it to a reporter, why keep your name anonymous?

And you must have missed the media shitstorm the Patriots and their fans endured because of that leak. It wasn't a "nothing is for sure yet, but some of the balls may not have been in accordance with NFL standards" type of leak/story. It was a conviction of guilt by everyone, shit stirring from Indiacrapolis, a question of integrity and character, all this while nobody really knew anything that was going on. The "unnamed sources" and their leaks (whether they're true or false) were a huge driving force in the Patriots witchhunt. If the Colts were some of those sources, it should be grounds for discipline.

Believe it or not, lots of companies have policies about who can communicate what to the media, about things related to the company, (and the policies make no distinction about whether the information you provide is true, or not).

Seems a lot of the "facts" are "fictitious".
