    Default Richís Sources: Patriotsí Footballs Passed Referee Inspection Just Under Allowable PSI Level

    BOSTON (CBS) ó The footballs used by the New England Patriots in the first half of the AFC Championship were indeed under the NFLís allowable PSI , but according to 98.5 The Sports Hubís Toucher & Rich, those footballs passed a pregame inspection by officials.

    Sources told Rich that the Patriots submitted their 12 game footballs under-inflated prior to the game, but the league did not properly inspect them and approved them for the contest. Rich broke the news Tuesday morning on their broadcast from Radio Row in Arizona.

    One thing that has been reported this last week, as weíve been learning about how footballs are treated before a game is that before every game, a referee measured with a pressure gauge each football to see if the pressure in each one is between 12.5 and 13.5 PSI.

    But that apparently isnít always the case. As a matter of fact, from what Iíve been told, many times the refs donít test the pressure of each ball with a gauge at all. Sometimes refs hold the ball, squeeze it, briefly inspect it, then sign off on it. Next ball. Itís never been a problem before. This is apparently a well known fact in the NFL.

    Now according to my sources, The Patriots turned in their footballs to the ref at a pressure just below the allowable PSI.

    If itís a situation where the refs DID use a gauge, the refs would see the balls were under inflated, and inflate them to the proper size. But in this case, the balls were approved and given back to the Patriots under-inflated.

    Thus, the under-inflated balls. The Patriots, according to my sources, played with league approved deflated balls.

    Yes, I would agree. And if true the officials should be fired on the spot.

    However, the "source" and writer are suspect as they are from Boston...wonder which way they want it to turn out???

    Also, not 12 balls were under-inflated. 11 were under-inflated.

    One other point...if you had failed to check the balls psi before the game...and then were asked to check it for pressure during the game...do you think you might just go through the motions again just to cover yourself? I know I would. Why bring attention to a situation that would show you didn't do your job? Doesn't make sense.
    Football is all about synergy. Replace a poor player with a great player and watch the surrounding players suddenly seem vastly improved. When you aren't covering for someone else, you can do YOUR JOB better.

    Well Tom Brady stuck to his guns, and the League may make him sit four games at the very least for being disobedient. I hate Goodell, and I hate Brady, this whole thing is ridiculous.

    Nah I think that the moral of the story is that Roger Goodell is not GOD and cannot punish players willy nilly because eventually one of those players will have the resources to say "Nah. Fuck this."

    I hate Tom Brady, I think he's overrated as fuck... but there was simply a lack of critical evidence to vindicate his guilt and he knew it.

    I think it's hilarious. Goodell has had so much egg on his face. I think it's verging on a miracle he still has his position, then again I am terribly biased against the fuck hole.

    ohhh...no. The moral of the story is 1) use a truly independent arbitrator, 2) do not try the case in the media using low credibility people like Mortensen and 3) time to fire Goodell.

    The NFL is in FIFA territory and should be very embarrassed by the whole thing. This was a totally self inflicted wound on "the shield".

    I can believe that. Also added "drama" to the Super Bowl, even though the Pats stomped Indy.

    Default One quarter into the 2015 NFL season, the Patriots have already been accused of cheating

    http://www.sbnation.com/2015/9/10/93...tegate-spygate

    Tomlin, Steelers hear Patriots' radio broadcast in game headsets
    http://www.si.com/nfl/2015/09/10/pit...blems-patriots


    In May, Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby told ProFootballTalk.com that his on-field headset stopped working when his Cardinals played the Patriots in 2008, and he does not think it was an accident: “They gonna do what they gotta do to win. It’s just how they operate.”
