Ok I missed the part about where Anderson gave figures.amarshal2 said:He said they were 13.0-13.1.
I agree it's a one-sided report.
I agree it wouldn't hold up in a court of law.
I agree there is far less than definitive proof that Brady knew they were deflating below 12.5.
And I agree the Pats probably intentionally deflated the footballs after the refs approved them.
Given the last one my general reaction is just a lot more muted than yours. I don't want 100% proof to suspend Greg Hardy so I can't ask for it here.
With respect to Hardy, we are talking about actual crimes HE committed. In the deflate issue, we are talking about what a couple of low level Pats employees did. So ok fire them and fine the team. But it's clear that Belichick knew nothing about it. And there's no evidence that Brady was really involved.
And if they punish the Pata at all, they damned well need to answer for the Carolina Panthers who were caught on tape tampering with ball inflation on the sideline during a game this year.
