Every day Deflategate falls apart a little bit more. I mean, we all knew it was bullshit from the beginning, but the lengths that the NFL has gone to keep this thing under wraps would even get Brenda Jenkins to start a slow clap. Yesterday was probably the biggest bombshell by far. Chris Mortenson took down his fictitious tweet that 11 of the 12 balls were over 2 pounds lighter than the allowed PSI. The NFLPA released all the testimony from the Wells investigation and it exonerated Brady fully.
But most damning of all was an email that was released yesterday that confirms that the entire thing was a 3-way sting orchestrated by the butthurt brotherhood of the Colts and Ravens, along with their yes men in the NFL executive offices. Ya see, the Ravens have denied that they tipped off the Colts about deflated balls since this whole shitshow started. But yet here is an email sent by Colts equipment manager Sean Sullivan to Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson, in which he explicitly states that the Ravens got in touch with the Colts about deflated balls before the AFC Championship:
The second sentence immediately proves that the Ravens were lying about not tipping off the Colts. It says so right there. First of all, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano used to be an assistant coach for the Ravens. Secondly, the Ravens had all the motive in the world to try to stick it to the Patriots because Tom Brady laughed when John Harbaugh was whining about “illegal formations” in the divisional round playoff game.
Most importantly though, it proves what we’ve always known about these two teams. The Colts are hilarious losers who knew they had no shot at beating us so they planned on coming up with excuses before the game even began. We know this because Ryan Grigson immediately took that email and forward it to Dave Giardi, a high ranking exec from the NFL:
What a whiny fucking loser this poopsmooch is. “We wanna make sure there’s a level playing field.” Newsflash – the playing field was far from level. That’s because you had a swiss cheese joke defense and we had the greatest team ever assembled. It’s just so funny that the day before one of the biggest games in Colts history, this is what their GM was worried about – PS fucking I.
You know who wasn’t at home worrying about things like PSI that don’t matter? Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. They were deciding what lube they were gonna use on your collection of lovable losers in blue and white jerseys.
This email basically sums up Ryan Grigson’s entire tenure as GM of the Colts. Back when they had Peyton Manning, what was their big weakness? Defense. But instead of building up a defense to TRY and stop Tom Brady, they wasted first round picks on chumps like Anthony Gonzalez and Joseph Addai.
So what does Grigson do? He tells Manning to take a season off so they can lose 13 games in a row on purpose and get the rights to draft Andrew Luck. And make no doubt about it – Andrew Luck is the only reason this was an 11-5 team instead of a 5-11 team.
But you can’t win without a defense. Grigson knows that, and that’s why he narced to the NFL before the AFC Championship. He did it to cover up for his own massive failures as a GM. After all, he could’ve drafted an impact defensive player in the first round of the 2014 draft that could’ve played some actual defense against the Brady machine. But unfortunately for him he traded away that draft pick for Trent fucking Richardson. Fail.
And the Ravens are a filthy, criminal organization full of liars. What’s really fucked up about this whole thing, is that the entire basis of the outrage against Tom Brady isn’t that he played with “deflated footballs.” Everyone agrees that PSI doesn’t matter.
Nope, the basis for the outrage is that Tom Brady lied. He wasn’t honest and forthright because he didn’t confess to a crime he had no knowledge of.
That’s the reason Brady got suspended four games. Roger Goodell took it personally because he had a hunch he was being lied to. But yet here we have undeniable proof that the Ravens lied to the NFL when they said they didn’t tip the Colts off about deflated balls. Where’s the four game suspension for John Harbaugh for not being up front about this? When are they gonna demand that he hand over his cell phone?
Here was what John Harbaugh said during the Super Bowl pregame show:
“It’s ridiculous, it never happened, I’ve been, I never made any call, nobody in our organization made any call. As a matter of fact, just to make sure I had all the facts, I called up Chuck Pagano and asked him, ‘Did anybody else in our organization tip you off about deflated footballs?’ and he said, ‘No way.’”
So let me get this straight Harbaugh called Pagano and asked him if someone from the Ravens had tipped off the Colts about deflated balls and Pagano said, “no.” Well then, case closed.
The best part is the Ravens are STILL denying they tipped off the Colts even after this damning, irrefutable emails have been released:
“I’ve been consistent from the beginning when asked about whether the Ravens tipped off the Colts about deflated footballs. I’ll say it again – we didn’t. We knew nothing about deflated footballs.”
I see he’s going with the Sonya Conner, “It wasn’t me” defense. Rock solid. The bottom line is, we all should’ve known better. I’m not generally a conspiracy theory guy, so I had a hard time believing an orchestrated scheme like this would actually happen in real life. But it did. And Tom Brady, the greatest player of all time, and a family man in a league full of women beaters, became the guy the NFL decided to go after. It’s fucking disgusting and I cannot WAIT to watch what Tom Brady does to the NFL this year. Anything less than a Super Bowl, no suspension for Brady, three first round draft picks, a full apology, and firing of Roger Goodell should be unacceptable.
