It’s almost as if the NFL doesn’t care about PSI or the integrity of the game.

If you missed it this weekend, another NFL team that is NOT the Patriots was accused of playing with underinflated balls. The New York Giants alleged that during last week’s game with the Pittsburgh Steelers they measured two balls, both of which were below the allowed PSI level.
Giants tested 2 footballs they questioned PSI levels vs Steelers and then alerted league office they were deflated. Please noooooooooo!!!!!

ESPN immediately tweeted out a false report about 11 of 12 balls being over 2 PSI below the allowable amount. The NFL immediately dropped everything they were doing to investigate this thoroughly, since we all know they are VERY concerned about the PSI level of game balls. It’s literally the most important issue in football. They hired Ted Wells to run up a $20 million legal bill and write a long report about how the Steelers were generally aware that they were cheating. They demanded that Ben Roethlesberger hand over his cell phone so they could go through it and see
all the chicks he raped if they could interpret any vague texts as evidence that he orchestrated the whole thing. No doubt we can expect a multi-game suspension, a long and drawn out court case, and the loss of several draft picks for the Steelers.
LOL. Just kidding. It’s already over:

Translation – it’s not the Patriots so we don’t have time to give a shit. Also, we haven’t had any major scandals involving players beating their wives in a few weeks, so we’re not looking to cover anything up with a false flag about the most hated team in the league. It’s almost as if they realize that science causing balls to become slightly deflated. Except for the Patriots. Science doesn’t matter when you’re investigating the Patriots.
So yea, if you missed this happening yesterday, it’s because the league swept it under the rug. And rightfully so, because no one has ever cared about PSI. It’s not something that has ever had any effect on a football game. Ever. More importantly the ideal gas law naturally makes anything filled with air deflate the longer it is exposed to cold air. This was never about “integrity.” It was about Roger Goodell trying to get people to stop talking about the Ray Rice video, coupled with his jealousy of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
Of course if the league actually stood for anything or cared about “cheating” then they’d take this seriously. After all, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin cheated in front of millions of people during a playoff game against the Ravens.
He’s got a history of cheating. His team wins Super Bowls. His team won the game easily. Sound familiar? Oh yea, it’s the same rationale that people used to justify the most ridiculous miscarriage of justice in American history, when they wasted all this time investigating the PSI level of balls in a 45-7 blowout.
We anxiously await hearing from Indianapolis butthurts like Bobby Kravitz and Gregg Doyel about how their conference rival kept the Colts from winning more Super Bowls.
