NFL investigating if Patriots deflated footballs: report - NY Daily News

The Patriots may have deflated their footballs to make it easier to throw and catch. If true, the Patriots will lose draft picks.

Here we go.....fact or fiction this is going to pick up steam like a son of a gun today overshadowing the win over the Colts.

Unfortunately in a lot of fans eyes the Pats are always guilty until proven innocent.

I believe the refs took a ball out of play after a kick return and before the ball was put into play......the announcers said it was because they had not removed the kick return ball from play! I believe this was when the ball was in the Pats possession. The announcers at the same time mentioned scuffed ball versus slick ball.

That might have been the time the article mentions a ball was taken out of play by the refs

Kinda beside the point here... But does anybody else recall a time where the balls being stained red like they were yesterday?

I was watching the pregame and halftimes shows and I guess Bradshaw was tossing a ball around with fans and his hands were BRIGHT red.

Dont remember seeing anything like that ever before.

Saw Bradshaw hands also and the balls that were in play looked stained as you said.........not sure if it meant anything but I was wondering myself why they stained so easy

Noticed the coloring on the players hands and jerseys to.

High definition television and the phenomenal camera technology of today definitely makes watching the game so much like being up close and personal with the game.

DeMarco Murray had a red stain from the football on his jersey in every game this year, at least every game the Cowboys wore white so, the red stain has been there all year.

Reading the article, it appeared that if the balls were deflated neither team had an advantage because they used the same balls. Unless somehow they got the deflated balls into play only when the Patriots had the ball. In most cases I would say, much ado about nothing but this is the Patriots and they are not immune from crossing the line..
