What I don't get. Sure the deflated ball will make it easier for gripping but when a deflated ball is thrown in the air, a properly INFLATED ball, (like car tires = better gas mileage) should have better aerodynamics. One can throw it and it should go a further distance in the air verse a deflated ball. Should it not?

The deflated ball had to be both a help and a hindrance.

Not when you've practiced, built team chemistry, and have grown accustomed to playing with a deflated ball. Receivers can catch better, RBs have a better grip, defenses aren't used to it. Cheating all around. Belie heck should be incarcerated to the NFL jail

From what I've read Kraft really didn't have any recourse to fight the penalties imposed on the team. And in the end, it probably costs them nothing if not makes them money. If Brady's 4-game suspension holds up, it's without pay, thus the Pats save salary money, more than the $1mil fine.

You saying "....and it appears the Patriots enjoy this more than others" means to me you believe others do the cheating thing too. That in itself is more to my point, that the issue isn't with one team, but with the NFL and how it runs its business.

The NFL is getting a free pass here, and most fans don't care because they have what their blood thirstiness wants, someone in a noose, so they feel like they've won. I'll still take what you probably call those tainted 4 Superbowls and let you believe anything you want. I doubt ANY cheating any team does would ever make a difference with them winning a Superbowl or not, and maybe even but one game a year, maybe. And I think crowd noise is a much bigger cheat than PSI's because it effects the entire field of play, but since a sucky team did it no one cared (and they didn't win anyways).

When players are suspended, the teams don't save money. The lost salary goes to the league, who puts in a charitable fund.

I think the witches in Salem got better legal chances than the Pats with Goodell.
