As 500 days have come and gone since the first report of Deflategate came out in early January 2015, The New England Patriots and their fans have become consistently at odds with the “Worldwide Leader In Sports” at ESPN.
Whether it was apologizing for erronous reports, misleading tweets, or lengthy explanations about transparancy, the mistrust towards the journalism and professionalism at the network has never been higher in Patriot Nation where seemingly any innocent story about the team is magnified.
This past Wednesday, the latest “story” into the ever growing “troll the Patriots” category is courtesy of an ESPN article entitled “We Created 10 Logos For NFL Stars.” You might see where this is going.
For the majority of the article, its seemingly light humor that touches upon many professional athletes creating their own personal logos. Tom Brady has this real one for quite some time now but the controversial logo below is quite predictable, ESPN apparently could ‘t resist another chance to jab the Patriots.

Get It? See what they did there? Funny right?
Deflategate. 500 Days old. No new jokes in sight.
