We also found out that the teams used their own balls on offense after they had a chance to scuff them up to their quarterback's specifications. They still do hat after all of this came out.

What's next? Does the home team's groundskeepers loosen the turf in parts of the field, with the quarterback knowing to avoid taking plays into that area?

Deflate gate should have never been possible. The game would have more integrity if the quarterbacks/teams never touched the football until after the first kickoff, and both teams drew their balls from the same bag.

Did they do the same thing in college? Now I have to wonder about that, too! Did some quarterbacks get into the NFL because they used their own balls modified to their specifications so they could excel?

I feel cheated because I am a football fan.
the so called "deflategate" was a pile of rubbish designed to cast the patriots, and tom brady, in a bad light so goodell could "do" something about the patriots winning as much as they have recently.

it was also about goodell being a dictator instead of a proper commissioner.

Am I the only one that ever left his toys out in the yard over night when he was a kid? Anybody that did this will be able to tell you that nobody needed to deflate those balls for that minimal change in air pressure to occur, it happens naturally when the temperature changes. Good lord.

This was a witch hunt. NFL management lost many cool points. Owners and NFL management went after Brady for something so silly, while others who beat the crap out of women got the same punishment. Unless there was more to the story that we never find out. IDK but it was crazy.

The entire Brady/NFL thing is a mess, and the punishments never seem to be fair one way or the other for certain wrong-doings.

I will say this: women-beaters should be dealt with severely in ANY society; they shouldn't be allowed to continue to have a place in the NFL, and they should be totally removed from professional level football.

According to ESPN, it may have been a make up call:

It is impossible that there was 40+ games of illegal filming. Filming of signals is within the rules. They can and still do it today. "Spygate" was about one half, or one game's, filming... and he issue was location from where the filming was done (sidelines). That (filming from the sidelines) was made against the rules the previous offseason and the Patriots didn't comply with that for for the first half of the 2007 Jets game. That's it. That was the only against the rules violation they had relating to videotaping by the league.

That is just more smear campaign tactics by the league.

They weren't emails, they were texts (primarily). They were told over, in entirety, as requested. They also received them from the other party (the people being texted). This was noted in the report.
