ESPN Trolls Patriots on Twitter prior to “Deflate Bowl”David Butler II - USA TODAY Sports

Another week, another troll job by a major sports network on social media, once again it appeared directed at the New England Patriots before their matchup with the Deflategate whistle-blower the Indianapolis Colts.

This Sunday morning the curious tweet below was posted on the ESPN NFL account to “pump” fans up for week six.

Get it?

Our own Steve Balestrieri has an explanation for the “comedic” tweet.

Former ESPN employee Bill Simmons also wasn’t afraid to voice his thoughts on the “reporting.”
