    So when will Bilichick get his one year suspension from the NFL? How many infractions does it take to finally succumb to a punishment that he will remember?

    Yeah, I'm sure that's the reason the Colts lost 45-7

    I'm not, but I'll still call out BS and excuses when I see them. Was rooting hard for either the Ravens or Colts to send them packing, but I can't see any rational reason for people to say that they didn't win those games or deserve to be in the SB.

    I'd prolly agree that they need to levy progressively larger fines for repeat/unremorseful offenders like the Patriots, but no one should be saying that they shouldn't be in the SB

    This ball thing is definitely an NFL conspiracy to create narrative for the Superbowl.

    WTF Patriots :facepalm: I mean come on man... They make it so hard to root for them.

    Also, fuck NFL for leaking this shit before officially releasing the results.

    Testing the court of public opinion. They've fucked up so many punishments it makes sense

    Reading through this, I cannot find anything about the balls used by the Colts. Anyone see something on this?

    Each team brings their own balls.

    Lol, NE fans keep asking about the colts balls. They are also blaming the change in temperature.

    I like the prediction that Goodell, Kraft, BB will pin this on some hapless ball boy.

    It's a fair qustion and one that should logically be asked. If the same thing happened with the Colts, either both teams did something shady or there's another explanation. It's only a story if only NE's balls were different and there is evidence of wrongdoing.

    I think they should institute a rule where each member of each team is responsible for feeling the other team's balls and carefully cupping them to judge size, weight and other important characteristics

    The colts complained about the balls during two different games. The pats didn't call into question the colts balls. Why would they need to check something with no complaints.

    Person A is accused of rape. Why wasn't the victim investigated as well for raping person A. Get the fuck outta here.

    Who is saying they shouldn't play in the SB? Finish the season, for the sake of a PR nightmare and then bring judgement.

    My comment above was specifically stating that bilichik should receive a suspension rather than a petty fine. He needs a punishment that will distance him from the game, which will induce pain, regret, and hopefully a memory worth not repeating again. Repeat offenders require stiffer punishment the next go around.

    Good luck getting into the Hall of Fame coach...

    What made you think that I was referring to you in any way? My conversation with Neo started with my comment that the Colts lost so badly that the ball air pressure had no bearing on the outcome. I was calling BS on all the people who seem to be suggesting otherwise
