as far as I know this is not true

From what i read/listen, each team is given 12 brand new balls that they practice with on game day. 2 hrs before the start they give the balls to the ref and ball boys so they can test them. Afterwards, the balls are safe guarded until game start. In the past, football was played with brand new balls but players started to complain about the ball being difficult to throw, catch, carry, kiss, etc.

Football, baby! I might watch the super bowl to watch Katy Perry's boobies!

How is it not true. There is one set of balls for play (12) and the 12 back ups. The balls come in and out of each sideline. It would be impossible for them to have home team balls and visitor team balls. If a ball gets thrown out of bounds on one sideline is somebody taking that and running around the stadium to deliver it to the other sideline? Of course not.

Actually this is not true. Each team supplies there own 12 balls. They're used for their own offensive plays and there are another set of 12 for the kickers. Also,the weather was in the 50's that night which wouldn't affect the pressure. Same as when your tire pressure goes down in your car during cold spells in the winter,never happens in warmer weather.

Only if he plays with an over inflated ball. But if you read his quote he says that the refs always deflate the balls prior to the game. So no, no rules violation.

Just watched Sportscenter and they reported that Indy was suspicious back in the November game with the Pats. So maybe Jackson didn't "notice" the underinflation when he intercepted the ball. But they might have been waiting for their chance to inspect a ball and that was their first opportunity.

If this is true then the game against the Ravens is really in question.

With regards to the refs not noticing during play that the balls were underinflated, one possibility could be that Goodell doesn't want the refs to bring something like this to attention if nobody (opposing team) is questioning it. It would be far better for Goodell and the league to just let it fly under the radar as long as everybody is cool with it. But once a team brings it into question the league has no choice but to look into the matter.

The Refs needs to inspect those ballz....check for lumps, irregularities, make the ballz cough, etc.
