    Not sure if this was previously posted, if so I apologize in advance.

    http://tikiandtierney.radio.cbsspor...st-the-patriots-that-have-doctored-footballs/



    "We never anticipated that a club might have a needle on the sidelines and take air out of the football or have a pump and put more in. We didn’t really talk about that and didn’t think about that. But obviously when you hear the conversation, it’s not just the Patriots alone that have doctored up the footballs or manipulated the footballs during the game. But in the end, I guess I might still ask the great question: How big of a deal is it?”

    Duh, Pereira. Does he have proof Brady doctored balls, even though it isn't a big deal?

    Should be "not only the Colts have doctored footballs."

    Well it a shame that the pats are the only ones getting caught doing this.

    In the whole history of the NFL, we have actual evidence of exactly one team sticking a needle into a football during the period of time covered by Rule 2. Exactly ONE team.

    That one team is...?

    Their penalty is...?

    Someone has to be first. Now all teams will be punished if they are suspected or caught.

    Kraft did the right thing by not fighting this but makes you wonder if the main reason was because there was more evidence against the pats.

    Only team I think Wells can truly say are "doing this" would be the Colts who altered balls approved by the refs before the AFCCG.

    guys, you are fighting a battle long lost. Kraft essentially admitted to cheating. it's over. the fights over. we lost.

    don't get your blood presures up. Just draft some guys to your fantasy team and root for your new favorite team(You fantasy team)

    And they probably won't do it again after what happened to the pats. Yes teams doctor the balls but the nfl is not going to start an investigation for all past offenses but going forward they will.

    Colts can do whatever they want. League has never punished them since the Polian era.

    This sounds like something Pereira could have said during the 103 day investigation. Nice of him to speak up now, when it's too late.

    Until he has proof they altered balls he shouldn't presume it, even if other teams have done so.

    If you go by the severity of the punishment, it is the worst crime committed in NFL history.

    There is one, and only one, team that was found to have tampered with the footballs in the AFCCG and didn't deny it. That team is the Indianapolis Colts.

    Can anyone tell me what the Colts penalties were? How many draft picks did they lose? How many ball boys were indefinitely suspended? How much coke money is Irsay losing over this?

    Really i am so tired of Pats fans assume there is more evidence that the Pats actually cheated. In my mind this takes more unfounded suspicions then a Jets fan simply believing the bogus report. Let me see if i truly understand what you are saying.
    Okay Roger the Dodger says to Wells, look guys we are going to pay you oh 5 or 10 mil but we really don't want to prove anything just you know dummy it up with a good first page and leave a lot of room to create doubt because we don't have any desire to prove anything, got it.
    Please the report has nothing, NOTHING AND YOU THINK MAYBE THEY HAD SOMETHING REAL AND JUST LEFT IT OUT IN CASE MAYBE THEY MIGHT NEED IT AT A LATER DATE. WOW!!!

    Actually it's not a shame because it was totally planned and premeditated well in advance of this.
