Read the texts here. Brady apparently complained about the balls and specifically how inflated they were.

The Hilarious, Brady-Bashing Texts Sent By The Pats' Ball-Deflators

Jastremski angrily says he's going to give him a balloon next time. Then they go on from there. These texts are very incriminating.

Deflate-Gate Report Reveals Salty Deflate-Gate Text Messages - NBC News

This is just ridiculous. Brady even gave McNally two autographed footballs and an autographed jersey, likely as payment for services rendered. The NFL report is far far too kind to them.

If it's true and they did deflate the ball, it's cheating. Cheating isn't winning. Never will be.
