I was reading this article from SI: Despite power being affirmed, Goodell loses again and noticed this quote:
"Locker room attendant Jim McNally, who called himself “the Deflator,” illegally took the balls into a bathroom before the 2015 AFC Championship Game, then denied taking them into the bathroom, then admitted he did but said he used the urinal. There is no urinal."

So was it a bathroom or not? Throughout all of the discussions on this, this is the first I've heard that McNally took the balls into some room other than a bathroom.

Where is this tidbit found? I thought I read the Wells Report pretty thoroughly. Did I miss it?

You're misreading, they're saying he waffled by saying he didnt go to the bathroom then said, Oh wait I did and used the urinal, but it was in a bath with no urinal.

Since Wells and the NFL refused to release the interview notes (because of integrity and transparency), we don't know how this Q&A went, only the NFL's summary of it. If it went like this:

McNally - "I stopped at the bathroom."
Wells - "And you used the urinal?"
M - "Yeah."
W - "Ah Hah! There is no urinal!"

On another point, how is it "illegal" to take the footballs to a bathroom? There's no rule that says can't be done, at least that I've seen. If you need to take a leak, your choices are to bring them with you, leave them unattended, or ask someone else to watch them (which would probably also be looked at as violation.)

Maybe he just took a stinky dump and was embarrassed to admit it.

As other said, it was a bathroom with a toilet and no urinal. But no one has answered why he would rush to let air out of the balls in 91 seconds rather than take 2-4 minutes to do it and do it right. He walked out with the balls in front of everyone. It wasn't like he had to rush to avoid suspicion.

Every simulation I have seen that proves he could have done it in the time he was actually in the bathroom would have required him to rush through the process and there was no need to do so.

Dude can go into the bathroom and deflate 12 balls in 91 seconds, but 2 officials (with more officials helping to coordinate) can only check the psi in 16 balls over the course of a 15 minute halftime. Yeah ok!!

Great point.

I just want to put a footnote on that.

According the Wells report he went in to the bathroom to release an average of........ 0.27 psi.

Because 0.27 psi makes a big ****ing difference.

I'm not sure how possible it is to let out just 0.27 of air pressure.

That urinal thing is so overplayed. Typical lawyer "gotcha" questioning. Ask 10 males that same question and I guarantee at least half of them would have said yes to the urinal question.


Why the hell would McNally rush to let air out of the balls? Because every idiot that did the scenario to prove it could be done were all rushing. There was no need for him to be rushing, he could have just acted like he was taking a crap.

Goddamn transgenders are ruining America.
I agree! I demand that those in authority address that matter before they even think about piddling crap such as terrorist infiltration, the economy, income inequity, immigration, school shootings, just to name a few. I mean, these goddam he/shes are the root cause of all of our problems.;)

Referring to human beings as "goddam he/shes"...good look on ya.

He also confessed to locking the door behind him. What a criminal. What kind of deviant locks the door behind him in a one person public bathroom? The two idiotic NY judges even referred to this suspicious behavior in their ruling. The movie Idiocracy has truly come to life.
