Roger Goodell expects Ted Wells’s Deflategate report soon

Getty Images

It has been more than a month since Roger Goodell said that Ted Wells’s investigation into allegations that the Patriots used underinflated footballs while throttling the Colts in the AFC Championship game was nearing its end.

The time that’s passed since he last publicly commented on the end date of the investigation hasn’t done anything to shake Goodell’s belief that answers are around the corner. During an appearance with Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning on Tuesday, Goodell said that he thinks the results of the investigation will be released soon.

“What we’re trying to do is just make sure we’re thorough,” Goodell said. “The most important thing here is: Was there a violation of the rules? And if so, how did that occur? We have a responsibility to the 32 teams — not just to one team, to 32 teams — and our fans, and the general public here to make sure that things were done fairly. I think it’s hard because you want to make sure you have all the information. One of the things that he would be asked to look for: Was it just one game?”

Goodell wouldn’t say whether there was suspicion that the Patriots were using deflated balls in multiple games and there wasn’t comment on other issues that have been raised during the extended wait for Wells’s report, including questions about who from the league leaked information that incriminated the Patriots in the days after the issue first came to light. Should those answers take much longer to surface, Goodell might want to refrain from further predictions about how close Wells is to going public with his findings.

  1. If this was found to be a systemic process done by the Patriots, they should lose a minimum of 2 first round picks considering their history.

    If it’s found the Colts deflated the footballs, they should lose a minimum of 3 first round picks as well considering how completely shady that would be.

    This coming from a Colts fan

  2. Goodell is just destroying the evidence, and sweeping the mess under the rug………AGAIN
    After the draft is over, the report will come out detailing everything just the way Goodell wanted it to be detailed.
    He has a responsibility to the other 31 teams, and to the FANS, to stop the ONE team that habitually CHEATS. Give the Death Penalty to the only team that systematically, repeatedly and continually CHEATS year after year.

    ZERO legitimate championships.
    Asterisk trophies

  3. Goodell on Wells: One of the things that he would be asked to look for: Was it just one game?”

    ——–

    How could Wells possibly determine, with anything remote to certainty, what the inflation levels of game balls were historically when the refs never even check or record that information? What may come of this this are new protocols, and that’s good, but it does not take this long to determine that.

    The idea that this guy makes 44 million per year to produce these types of comments is insane.

  4. Violation of the rules??? Pretty sure I could figure that out in a weekend. How about a poorly executed plan to “take down” the Patriots by a NFL employee and former Jets executive? How about an employee stealing balls for charity to sell himself? If the NFL was only as popular as the NHL, these executives would have bankrupt it by now. Worse run corporation ever. All they have to do is not F it up and let it run itself and they can’t even do that???

  5. The process needs to be changed. I am aware that it was changed during the Superbowl, but teams should not be allowed to provide the footballs to be used.

  6. he’ll get the report as soon as its the absolute best time to announce the findings and sweep them under the rug as quickly as possible

  7. So Soon? That was fast. I know one thing for sure, Ted Wells is making a ton of money from the NFL by dragging out these investigations as long as possible.

  8. Have some footballs slightly under pressure is the equivalent to having to much pine tare on a bat. It J-walking. In short it’s low hanging fruit for the crybabies.

  9. How much time would local law enforcement need to investigate an incident where air was let out of someone’s tires? 100 days?

    This is going to be an NFL bombshell and they are waiting until after their marquee event ( the draft) to pass.

    One uncovered aspect of this fiasco is the role of Bob Kraft’s lawyers. They have a very strong legal case that their clients brand and reputation were unfairly tarnished by the actions of others. The only evidence they need is the numerous media accounts which portrayed the Patriots poorly.

    If I made the patently false public statement that McDonald’s uses less than 100% beef in their hamburgers, their lawyers would turn me into a 6ball McMuffin

    ————————————————————
    You think he’s trying to sweep it under thd rug by having it be the nations largest news story during the 2 weeks before the super bowl, and then making insinuations like “One of the things that he would be asked to look for: Was it just one game?”.

    The NFL has done everything possible to make this the biggest story they can for as long as they can, which is the opposite of “sweeping it under the rug”.

  11. As soon as the draft starts. They will try to bury it in the draft news. The report will say nothing of substance and make a few nonsense recommendations. The NFL just wants this to go away.

  12. Aaron Rodgers turns in his footballs over inflated because he knows the refs don’t measure them. Somehow that is never brought up by anybody nor is the New York times story where ball boys admitted the refs didn’t weigh the footballs and just felt them. Then again, when you can’t beat the Patriot’s on the field, you just find things to try to bring them down no matter how insignificant it is. Hate us cause you ain’t us.

  13. Colts fans shouldnt throw stoned from glass houses. You should be investigated for the suck for luck campaign, punping in fake crowd noise, and yes also filming opponents signals. Howard mudd was one of the pioneers to film defensive signals. Yes theee howard mudd who was a member of the colts organization for many years.

  14. You mean Aaron Rogers’ Packers or the Minnesota Vikings heating balls on the sidelines- those and the other 31 teams? Ex Jet employee Goodell needs to be fired

  15. Why don’t you do a topic about the Jets tampering to get Revis… That was blatently obvious & should have been brought to fruition a long time ago!!
    What is taking Roger so long to rule on such a straight forward violation that directly effected a team over a month ago… TED WELLS wasn’t needed for this so what’s the hold up!!! THIS DRAFT should be effected by that NOT next years!!!
    Woody & Roger (an ex-Jets employee) seem to be in bed together!! There is absolutely no reason for this to not have been resolved by this stage… Pressident has previously been established & handed down…

  16. HAHA where is all that confidence now #PatsNation the hammer is about to drop

    And with the Patriots winning…

    Fans have been blessed by not having to read something stupid out of Richard Sherman’s mouth every day.

    That in itself is quite a blessing…

  18. WHO CARES!!! The by GOD patsies, the darlings of the NFL will get nothing taken from them. Kraft bought the super bowl, he & Goodell are happy & best buddies so all will be well like it ALWAYS is with the patsies!!! Furthermore if the Colts would have showed up to play the AFC championship game there might be more to add, so it is all just B/S!!! Please Quit Goodell you suck!!!

  19. Everyone acts like the report is going to answer a bunch of questions. It won’t. It will be written in such as way as to exonerate basically everyone. It will fail to address multiple key points. It will neither vindicate nor exonerate the Patriots, Colts, refs, or anyone else. No real secrets will be revealed. No evidence of a conspiracy will be highlighted. The only serious details presented will emphasize the rigor of the NFL’s investigation into the science behind ball inflation. Yet, once it’s released, every NFL person questioned about the issue will refer it as if it provides all the answers anyone could want. This is how the NFL operates.

  20. Goodell is just destroying the evidence, and sweeping the mess under the rug………AGAIN
    After the draft is over, the report will come out detailing everything just the way Goodell wanted it to be detailed.
    He has a responsibility to the other 31 teams, and to the FANS, to stop the ONE team that habitually CHEATS. Give the Death Penalty to the only team that systematically, repeatedly and continually CHEATS year after year.

    ________________

    Come on now, don’t be so hard on the Colts…

  21. I’ve finally figured out why this must be taking so long. It’s obvious that Ted Wells is being paid by the hour.

  22. The league has nothing on the Pats, this was a failed frame job from Grigson/Kensil.

    11 of 12 balls were just a tick below the minimum PSI and the one Patriots ball in the Colts possession just so happened to be a full 2 pounds below the limit.

    If it sounds sketchy it’s because it is.

    Can’t wait for week 6, so the Patriots can crush Indy and their mouth breathing QB one more time.

    Last 4 Pats/Colts games, the Patriots are 4-0 while outscoring Indy 189-73.

    Mr. Kraft awaits his public apology Roger…

  23. CANNOT WAIT!

    All the crying all the haters are going to do about the WORLD CHAMPS being VINDICATED will be a complete joy to God’s chosen people–New England Patriots fans!!!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA HATERS

  24. I love all these jealous haters, you just can’t stand it because the Patriots are so successful but you know what?
    Patriots are the reigning Super Bowl Champions & we love it
    Please keep hating!

  25. Hey everyone. Why don’t you wait until the report comes out to make a judgement on the patriots? There are two camps here. One that believes the patriots are totally innocent and the other thinks they are cheaters. Well why don’t you decide that when you actually have evidence to back up your belief?

  27. Sorry haters. There will NEVER be asterisks on the Patriots Super Bowl wins. I know it’s hard to accept the fact that they can dominate in such fashion during the salary cap era. I’m sorry for your feelings of inadequacy that cause you to wish and hope for something to grab on to that will make your team look just a little bit better.

    Then again, why aren’t you all calling for asterisks for the Niners, the Falcons, and the Browns…you know, all those teams that were caught and/or admitted to cheating? Why aren’t you crowding onto their websites with “CHEATERS OMG DOCK DRAFT PIKCS!!!11!!!” Why didn’t those stories lead all the nightly newscasts? Why didn’t the friggin’ View talk about those scandals?

    Oh, that’s right, there’s no reason to be jealous of those teams. They haven’t dominated the league the last 15 years like the Patriots. So until you all go after those teams with the same fervor, excuse me for not thinking too highly of your opinions.

    What’s patently false about 11 of 12 footballs being under inflated?

    The worst part about the Patriots is that they won’t admit it even when they’re caught red handed e.g. spygate.

  29. “Ted wells looking into whether NE deflated balls more than 1 game. NE fans are getting nervous.”

    Lol shouldn’t this have been assumed the whole time? The whole point of the “investigation” was to see if there was a violation and obviously if there was they would look to see if it was an isolated incident. Nothing new here and the only people nervous are the trolls

    ———————————————————-My money is on the report findings doing nothing to disuade the opinions of either side once it’s all said and done with.

    My question is why aren’t there any Rodgers MVP being revoked comments? The answer is simple, he plays for a team other than New England. New England could get their Gatorade spiked with Ruffies by the opponent and we’d here that’s just gamesmanship but let’s hope we never find out the road lockroom doesn’t have a water softener at Gillette cause that’d be heinous.

  31. Wow, the delay is most likely related to an internal investigation in the NFL office as to a possible framing attempt and subsequent leaking of information prior to the Super Bowl.

    On a related note, what’s going on with the Jets tampering with Revis ??? This is really cut and dry, with the draft so close why is Goodell dragging his butt ?

    Just Saying

  32. What I didn’t hear and what he also needed to have said was, “Has this violation been committed by other teams?” (since other players have come forward to suggest everyone does this) and “Does the rule best reflect the realities of the game?” (since it seems most QBs want a psi outside the narrow range prescribed by the regulations).

    That’s exactly what any rational person who is interested in facts and the truth would do. Unfortunately, there is a whole raft of people out there who are not interested in facts or are incapable of applying logic to a situation and they have already made their decision on the Patriots so the facts to them are not relevant. They have applied the same approach to all other situations where it suits their purpose (whatever that may be) to conclude that the Patriots cheated rather than to admit the simple truth that the Patriots are just that good on the field.

  34. I’m just tired of the league making (or attempting to make) an example of the Patriots just because they’re the model of success at this time. Of course they’re going to be under major scrutiny from bitter rivals. It doesn’t mean they should “die for all our sins.”

  35. One fact is indisputable in this case: by allowing information to leak in the days after the AFCCG, while saying nothing official, the NFL allowed what was, at most, a speeding ticket type of infraction to become national news. That fact alone should signal the end of the Goodell era.

  36. What’s that you’re mumbling?

    “Take away the trophy. “Suspend cryBrady & Belicheat 1 year.”
    “ZERO legitimate championships.” “#Tainted” “****”

  37. Hater Nation…you all can go pound sand.

    The World Champion New England Patriots will be proven innocent. But that won’t stop the losers from spewing their jealous hate of the greatest organization in Football and all of pro sports history.

  38. I’m going with The Sharks of Vegas on this one…

    I think it’s going to look bad for the NFL Offices, The Colts, and possibly the Ravens.

  39. “What’s patently false about 11 of 12 footballs being under inflated?”

    ————————–

    We don’t know 11 of 12 were under inflated. The really early reports from unnamed sources suggested that and for a week we all reported on it and accepted it. But subsequent reports suggest only 1 of 12 was grossly under-inflated (the one the Colts took to their sideline) and that the others were either (a) 1 psi under or (b) “a tick” under (depending on who you believe). Either way, (a) or (b) are within the range that could be caused by temperature and moisture (as scientific but unofficial experiments later showed). (We have yet to see what the experiments commissioned by the league found).

    The confidence is only growing. Have you read the latest info from people who know? Pats did nothing wrong. Not intentional deflation, and the NFL knew it all along. They brought in Wells to figure out why the football became deflated. You’re going to find out this whoel investigation was about the ref selling balls on the side and the Colts (really Grigson) ham-fisting it because he’s a sore loser.

    What fantasy will you spin when this comes out and doesn’t fit your hater illogic? What conspiracy theories will you wring out of your brain in order to deny reality?

    This right here is going to be the fun stuff we Patriots fans are going to get to see shortly.

    I for one, can’t wait at all the laughs you’re going to give me.

  42. I love how the haters are already warming up the ‘swept under the rug’ and ‘Goodell in Kraft’s pocket’ excuses. Even they know what’s coming. The Patriots will be completely exonerated of any wrongdoing. Hopefully the results of this farce of an investigation will result in the NFL getting it’s own house in order.

  43. Oh Wells will have to find some ‘pound of baloney’ to keep LOSER football fans happy so they can feel better about there own team.
    You know FICKLE ROMANS.

    Next time Patriot are in super bowl. Patriot fans will have to hear more whining because there shoe laces where the wrong size. It keeps the

    Now, your statement is patently false.

    See, this is a good example of someone who doesnt really know what they are talking about. Belichick publicly apologized for Spygate and openly took the blame. All over a camera placed in the wrong spot. For one game.

  45. The NFL will most likely not release anything before the draft. They wont want to take away the spotlight from one of their big events of the year.

    Patriots owned up to Spygate immediately. What are you talking about?

  48. The Patriots cheating in the past won’t matter.
    If they are going to be punished it will come out after the draft. If they are cleared it will come out before the draft.

  49. Wow this article doesn’t look good for the Pats. Goodell didn’t really say anything to imply Colts were at any fault here. Not looking good for the Pats

  50. Poor poor Patriot haters.

    To think you actually believe your team is good enough to hang with the World Champions! 🙂

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  51. This is a classic witchhunt. There is an enormous appetite for proof of Patriots sins. Makes sense. The NFL is like 32 organized religions. If you don’t worship at the altar of the Patriots, you worship at 1 of 31 other altars, as Bill Nye pointed out so well when he added “Go Seahawks” to the end of his very narrow (and rather hooked-on-phonics level) experiment into the effects of weather on footballs.

    So the Patriots are in a bad spot. A bitter rival hoped to catch them in a vulnerable spot (even if those balls were under-inflated, we don’t yet know and may never know with certainty whether they were DELIBERATELY deflated). But the Colts were able to bring the issue out in the open, and of course it received national attention (and a great deal of yellow journalism) because everyone who roots for another team (and that’s got to be 31/32 of the fan base) wants to believe there’s something more at work here than the Patriots just being good enough to win 4 out of the last 14 Super Bowls.

  52. What I expect more than anything to come out of the report is a series of recommendations regarding the handling of game balls including recording the PSI prior to the game, at half time and at the end of the game.

    You know, actually coming up with regulations and procedures for dealing with the balls instead of the current trust us we did it routine.

  53. Goodell doesn’t know squat about the report or the timing of it and neither does anyone else outside of Ted Wells and his circle. The investigation into the Pats being framed ERRRRRR deflategate is completely independent. When Wells is ready with it we will know right away.

    Sorry Patriot haters if that’s not what you wanted to hear! 🙂

  54. Do you Patriot haters think Tom Brady will retire after the Pats three-peat? When (notice I said when not if) the Pats repeat in 2015 he’ll be asked but I think he’ll wait for the three-peat in 2016.

    Discuss.

  55. The Pats and Golden Boy are the darling of the NFL, and nothing will happen to them. Not while the Commish and owner of the Pats are buds.

How’d that work out? Yup the Patriots went on to win the Super Bowl…. remember that hoping & wishing it to be true doesn’t make it so ladies!!!
    I can’t wait for this report to come out & watch the crying & whines to begin…the pain of you tears & shouts of a cover up etc. etc,……should be fun to watch you all shake your fists at the sky & scream of injustice & after all is said & done you’ll finally come back to the realization that the Patriots will still rule you pitiful little world & will for years to come!!! &

    *************************************

    Hmmm, crying that “every team does it”(when that is not true), and then saying that it was “only a misinterpetation of the rules” does not quite seem like owning up immediately.

    Another weak attempt to minimalize the cheating

  58. Do you know how stupid you sound when implying that Goodell will or is even capable of “sweeping it under the rug”?
    The Wells report will be released in it’s entirety. Goodell isn’t going to have the lone copy and then sneak around deleting things from it. Bunch of tin foil hat wearing fools.
    Also, EVERY team has played with under inflated footballs in most cold weather games unless they inflate to 13.5 psi, and probably would have to have inflated at less than room temperature.
    Colts knew they were running a sting operation so obviously they prepared the footballs in the best way possible to maintain within that tight range of allowable psi.
    John Harbaugh knows about the cold making footballs flatter, he said as much. It’s my belief that Harbaugh started the whole thing knowing the Pats would likely not have regulation footballs by halftime. Grigson gladly jumped on board.
    What I wonder about is if the Colts gauged the intercepted football before turning it in. That could have deflated the football somewhat, then again when weasel Kensil tested.
    I only hope he was closely supervised when testing psi at halftime. The difference is so slight when looking at that psi gauge it can easily be misread.

  59. Pats fans automatically assume they are innocent & everyone else automatically assumes they are 100% guilty. I don’t know who to believe. They’re all lunatics.

  60. Refs, Pats or Colts….if those balls were under inflated than one or more parties are involved.

    I predict we all get the script that there was no definitive evidence that tampering occurred and we’ll be reading a list of changes to the protocol with regards to security of the football.

    Only hope is TMZ acquired video again and just waiting on the Goodell coverup to come out first.

  61. “Goodell doesn’t know squat about the report or the timing of it and neither does anyone else outside of Ted Wells and his circle. The investigation into the Pats being framed ERRRRRR deflategate is completely independent. When Wells is ready with it we will know right away.”

    So much wrong there… It’s amazing what homer bias will do to a person.

  62. Sometime soon = after the draft.

    They’ve probably had the results for some time now but don’t want to make waves. And speaking of, I live two blocks from “Draft Town” in Chicago. It’s annoying, NFL. New York can take this mess back next year.

  63. Goodell = worst leader in the free world. He is a walking conflict of interest. He has no values, no scruples, no personality, no feel for the game, and he has forgotten the fans make the NFL.

  64. “If it’s found the Colts deflated the footballs, they should lose a minimum of 3 first round picks as well considering how completely shady that would be.”

    And impossible. Thanks for your input.

  65. If this was a clear cut case of some ball boy doing this like everyone assumes, the investigation would have been over a long time ago. At this point, it seems like this is turning to some form of science with an investigation into leaks from the NFL office and the Colts, but who knows.

    What I do know is that the Pats beating the Seahawks and winning another Super Bowl is a huge bucket of water on this fire. Nothing will change the fact that the Pats are still the Greatest Dynasty of All-Time, especially now that we know #StickumGate taints the entire 49ers run with Rice.

  66. “Goodell doesn’t know squat about the report or the timing of it and neither does anyone else outside of Ted Wells and his circle. The investigation into the Pats being framed ERRRRRR deflategate is completely independent. When Wells is ready with it we will know right away.”

    ——

    Speak for yourself. 🙂 But go ahead and believe what you will. I would rather believe truth and facts.

  67. Believe me — you think you want the Patriots to be guilty here — but you really don’t. Think about what your greatest fantasy would mean. Imagine for a moment the evidence suggests the Patriots have been deflating balls since Belichick first installed Tom Brady as QB. Imagine the public puts an asterisk on every SB win much like it did to the record setting perforances of Mark McGuire and Barry Bonds. It would be bad enough to look back on those years and think we all wasted our times as consumers of sports entertainment, thinking what we were seeing on the field was an accurate representation of true greatness and ranking among competitors. That’s a sobering sentiment. But what’s even worse is thinking that what we’re seeing from any team going forward could be exposed as fraudulent some 2, 3, or 10 years down the road. That alone should remove all motivation to follow this sport.

  68. Should be interesting to see how they determine if balls were deflated in other games seeing as no pressure measurements were taken at halftime of other games. How exactly does THAT work? Do they just ask a bunch of bitter coaches and players who lost to the Pats if the balls were deflated and then take their word for it?

  69. This might be the most anticipated report to come out in league history.

    Pats fans are actually “pee in your pants” scared of another *taint.

    If the reports are true that he reinflated them himself of course.

  74. Its time to nail them once and for all. Hit them where it hurts, ban Belicheat for life and take away that trophy. As proven in the pasts they view losing picks as a good tradeoff to being caught cheating.

  75. Every troll here knows the truth…….they come here to spew hate cuz their team has sucked for so long, knowing if they spew garbage about the WORLD CHAMPS they might feel better!!! We know the deal, and don’t take your trolling tooo seriously. But we do love the fact that we root for THE GREATEST FOOTBALL ORGANIZATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL. THE FOUR TIME SUPER BOWL CHAMPS THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS. keep spewing your garbage as THE DRIVE4-5 BEGINS!!!!

  76. Oh, and if the Jets lose a draft pick it won’t be awarded to the Patriots. I’m not sure where people got that idea but it doesn’t work that way, the Jets will simply just lose a pick and that’s it.

    There is a lot of precedent for the Pats getting the Jets pick. It won’t be a good pick, but a 5-7 is almost a given based on history

  79. Here are the facts. Judge for yourself what they Mean.

    from years 2000-2006 before teams provided their own balls.

    Fumbles by Pats 171

    Fumbles by opp 170

    Brady’s QB Rating 88

    from years 2007- 2014 after teams starting providing their own balls.

    Fumbles by Pats 112

    Fumbles by opp 172

    Brady’s QB Rating 102

    Same coach and same QB yet night and day difference in fumbles and QB rating. They are just facts. Take them or leave them.

  80. Interesting what Goodell does not say. He did not mention the integrity of the process of what took place that day by all parties.

    The key question, according to Goodell: “Was there a violation of the rules? ”

    We know balls had less air in them than called for by the NFL Handbook but science has determined that is a natural occurrence given the temperature change. Goodell did not say they were looking at the whether the rule might need to be tweaked and an admission such a variable makes any definitive determination difficult.

    We know that the NFL office and the Colts broke protocol (i.e., the rules) bu running a sting instead of taking the matter to the head referee. Goodell’s comments could be construed to address these rule violations as well but he gives no direct indication Well’s is doing so other than to say he is being thorough.

    This really is looking like the NFL is trying to save face, searching for a smoking gun or some other finding for the NFL to hang their hat.

    What is absurd is that there is a rule for under-inflating a game ball and the penalty is a minor fine. History indicates that teams have fudged ball pressure for years. So, why wouldn’t there be a simple finding and an issuance of the fine called for in the handbook if a violation did occur? Alas, Goodell is all about form over substance. Only a fool lets an issue this small grown into such a big deal.

    When has Goodell and the NFL office in New York ever admitted that they screwed up?

    Oh, and if the Jets lose a draft pick it won’t be awarded to the Patriots. I’m not sure where people got that idea but it doesn’t work that way, the Jets will simply just lose a pick and that’s it.

    Some of the things I read in Coursons book about the Steelers are shocking and disgusting. To think that cheating can be so rampant in any NFL organization is repulsive to me as an intelligent football fan with integrity. The cheating even killed people. More Steelers have died young from heart and other steroid related ailments by far than any other team.

    So NO STEELER FAN… NOT everybody was doing it. Only your team was cheating. That’s it.

    Never mind draft picks…time to kick the Steelers out of the league permanently.

  82. “…One of the things that he would be asked to look for: Was it just one game?”
    —————————————

    Of course that’s a valid question, but considering the fact that the NFL – and the genius Inspector Kensil – took no measurements for the game in question when they knew beforehand that there was a possible issue, how in the world could they possibly determine whether there’d been any wrongdoing in the past?

    The Ravens piled on after-the-fact, and the Colts apparently felt that there was an issue in the earlier in-season game, but without actual…you know…”EVIDENCE”…what can Wells or anyone else possibly determine about what was or wasn’t done in earlier games?

    The refs inspect the balls before the games to make sure they’re within regulation, that’s all we know.

  83. Ok Patriot fans, let me explain the difference between what the Patriots are accused of and what Aaron Rodgers said. Rodgers said he likes overinflated balls and will have them overinflated before giving to the refs. He also said they always take some air out. What the Patiots are accused of is taking air out of the balls AFTER getting them back from the refs. If Rodgers had air put back in the balls after getting them back from the refs, that is cheating and would be the equivalent to what the Patriots are accused of.

    I have no idea if the Patriots did that and neither do any of you. Unless there is proof the refs checked the balls before and they were significantly less when rechecked, or if someone admits to taking air out, I don’t see how the Patriots could be punished.

    If the Colts did what some of you think (which I doubt), they should be severely punished, even more harshly than the Patriots if they did it.

  84. The Vikings and Panthers were caught on film illegally heating game balls during the game. ESPN wrote an article about it. Both teams were let off with just warnings. Why?

    That looks like a team that changed it’s fundamental approach to the game. They realized that Brady wasn’t just a “game manager” and took to the air far more than they did in Brady’s first 5 seasons (he never played in 2000).

    They also moved toward running backs who were short on the big play and long on holding onto the ball. Their running game became secondary to the pass, and the minute a RB fumbled he found himfelf on the bench. Do it more than a few times and he was cut.

    Defensively, they got weaker, but went with a “bend don’t break” approach… that meant allowing teams to have 10+ play drives, and hope that someone would make a play before they got in the end zone.

    As a result, they often lead the leauge in take-aways despite allowing tons of yards.

    BTW, this is all well documented. But you can blame the ball, if it makes you feel better.

  86. To those who put credence into the theory that the Patriots are being investigated for doing this in multiple games (Goodell, being the idiot he is, fed this farce) need to explain how Wells could come to such a determination? Maybe a seance?

    I would contend that if the NFL tries to say there was a pattern of misbehavior they will need to prove it factually and explain how it went unnoticed and uncorrected . The NFL is responsible for the game balls and they knowingly allow them to be “doctored” as part of the pregame ritual. Goodell needs to look in the mirror. The guy does not understand the term “immateriality”. If he was a game official there would be a penalty on every play. He is not fit to run the league.

  87. Hmmm, crying that “every team does it”(when that is not true), and then saying that it was “only a misinterpetation of the rules” does not quite seem like owning up immediately.

    Another weak attempt to minimalize the cheating

    ———————————————–

    Oh man. No one from the Patriots organization ever came out and said “other teams do it”. In fact, other head coaches spoke out saying that they had done it themselves(because it was legal prior to 2007) in the past. See Bill Cowher, Jack Del Rio, Jimmy Johnson etc.

  88. We superior fans of the World Champion New England Patriots eagerly await Mr. Wells’s report and can’t wait to see what he found.

    Just like MLB’s Mitchell report, it will easily be one of the most fascinating reads about pro sports “behind the curtain” in a long time.

  89. Goodell is stalling the release of the Wells report until after the draft. Period. He knows he gets booed annually and doesn’t want to create more animosity when the focus should be on the new players and not on how much NFL fans despise him and believe he is corrupt and inept.

  90. And another thing: they Added guys like Moss, Welker, Gronk, Hernandez and Eddleman after 2006. Brady never had receiving weapons like that his first 5 years.

    Of course his QB rating went up, and better offensive players are going to turn the ball over less.

  91. The NFL is responsible for the game balls and they knowingly allow them to be “doctored” as part of the pregame ritual. Goodell needs to look in the mirror. The guy does not understand the term “immateriality”. If he was a game official there would be a penalty on every play. He is not fit to run the league.

    —-
    The fact that a rogue “sting” actually happened on his watch… in theory allowing potentially illegal footballs to be played in a conference championship game in order to play gotcha with the Patriots…. this is reason enough to ask for his resignation along with Kensil’s.

    Won’t happen, sadly.

  92. The Pats are being investigated for multiple games. Grabbing at straws, but they’ve interviewed Mallett, Hoyer and Cassell. Guess that’s being thorough.

  93. This just in. Some people listen to country music and they play with real balls in Dallas. Not quite a “and your no Jack Kennedy” moment, but then Tony Romo is no Lloyd Bentsen and Tom Brady is no Dan Quayle (but he is the closest thing to Joe Montana we’ve had since Joe Montana).

  94. That’s real nice and merciful that he is waiting until after the draft. What a guy, that roger Goodell.

  95. Goodell is phony. He has repeatedly said that Well’s investigation is independent and that he hadn’t discuss the details with Wells. In this interview, he tries to sell the “What we’re trying to do is just make sure we’re thorough” bs to make himself a bastion of “integrity”.

    Well’s isn’t an independent investigator. He’s Goodell’s boy; well paid, intelligent, but still his boy whose job one is to make Goodell look good and cover Roger’s butt.

    There’s no Chinese Wall in this investigation other than the one Goodell is hiding behind.

  96. I’m glad the steelers get ten days rest to play the niners on 4 days with a cross country flight. Should be a gimme with a couple fortuitous calls and maybe Polamalu’s replacement can fill his shoe’s aptly by spearing Vernon Davis in the knees. Should be a great start to the fixed NFL season. Deflategate will be announced on a day when some other story line can swallow up the entire front page.

  97. If they have interviewed Mallett, Hoyer and Cassell they haven’t found anything of substance against the Pats because every one of these guys will say the balls were not intentionally deflated and they would need to discipline them as well if they found to the contrary.

  98. Sharp’s analysis of fumbling data aren’t ‘facts’. It is bad spin and cherry picking of data to fit Sharp’s agenda. It’s been blown up by several academic statisticians. You can make stats ‘prove ‘almost anything you want if you present them the right way.

  99. Temperature affects pressure. That much has been known since the 1700s. No, I’m not making that up. It isn’t a matter of opinion or some vague “atmospheric conditions” that works “sometimes”.

    So they’re holding the patriots to a special standard, that their footballs must not be affected by temperature? Brilliant stuff.

    This is so much like the movie “Idiocracy”, it’s scary. You have people not only ignorant but willfully, proudly so.

  100. Thursday night on the podium.

    “AND WITH THE NUMBER ONE PICK IN THE 2015 NFL DRAFT THE TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS SELECT….JAMEIS WINSTON, QUARTERBACK, FLORIDA STATE!!!!” (Goodell then whispers into mic over during the commotion) …”and by the way, Patriots are innocent.”

  101. The comment he made” was it just one game” implies the Patriots are guilty. We now have confirmation the Patriots cheated AGAIN just like that punk Mop Olynyk. Boston seems to have a cheating problem.

  102. truthfactory says:
    Apr 28, 2015 9:02 AM

    If this was found to be a systemic process done by the Patriots, they should lose a minimum of 2 first round picks considering their history.

    If it’s found the Colts deflated the footballs, they should lose a minimum of 3 first round picks as well considering how completely shady that would be.

    This coming from a Colts fan

    ———-

    If the evidence is there to support it either way then I agree that this is fair.

    However, I am not sure we’ll see that kind of evidence. Someone would have to admit to it under questioning to gain evidence of a systematic process as the balls are no longer available to test. Similarly, for the Colts to be caught, they would have to admit to it, as I don’t think there is clear evidence.

    I think a hand slap is coming, although Goodell’s comments may foreshadow that some evidence was found.

    Someone will have to fully admit it was standard practice and they will have to be credible.

    And I don’t mean standard practice to try and get lower inflated balls approved. That probably was standard practice. Rodgers tries to get over inflated balls approved. Same diff. The officals have a job to inflate them to the proper levels during inspection.

    I mean standard practice to tamper with them post inspection.

    That’s the only way the hammer is coming down.

    I agree with that… Goodell isn’t making those comments for no reason.

  107. 3 months and being thorough is equivalent to = Nothing happened!! This is a complete farce. If something happened they would have already came out with the report before the draft. You can’t look for something that isn’t there.

  108. I like the word that the article used to describe what the Pats were doing to the Colts in that game — they were “throttling” them.

    Words just as good and applicable could have been “destroying”, “hammering”, “dominating”, “crushing”, “blowing out”, “embarrassing”, or something similar along those lines.

    But “throttling” definitely works. 🙂

    Confidence in what?

    The Patriots fans are happy that their team won the Super Bowl and have confidence they will have a chance again, if that’s what you mean.

    There are no asterisks… there never will be. Check the record book yourself if you don’t believe me. They are in your mind.

    The 4 Super Bowls will stand forever.

    All that said, they might be guilty of deflating footballs. Just like Atlanta pumped in crowd noise and the Jets tampered. If they are punished or if they are not, the Patriots will just move on like they always do and there won’t be any asterisks in sight.

    Patriots fans are eagerly awaiting the Wells report just like everyone else is.

  110. I never said the hammer was coming down, l simply pointed out that the investigation was focused on multiple gms, since the 3 up QBs didn’t play for the Pats last yr. But, make no mistake, this isn’t a court of law. The NFL has already mandated they will make judgements on even 60/40 evidence. Probably just looking for patterns of behavior or preferences. If they find nothing, they look like fools.

  111. This involved more than one game and YES there will always be an asterisk next to this SB win and others they have won.You Pat’s fans may not agree,but it is a fact – Face it !! If they are guilty in deflategate,they will forever be known cheaters.

  112. If this was a “sting” operation by the Colts, as you Pats fans put it, then this was the sole act by Grigson. There’s 0% chance Pagano played any part in this. You don’t go through such a life-altering experience by having Cancer, and beat it, to then risk your integrity by making a petty attempt to “frame” the Pats. You can tell by the way he carries himself, and his reaction to the whole thing.

    But who knows what to think at this point, with so many different contradicting reports. It just sucks that both organizations are being tainted by fans pointing the finger at the other org before the outcome of the whole thing. And it also sucks that, whoever is at fault, (likely a very small tight group on either the Pats or Colts side) will ruin the reputation of the whole organization and not just themselves…

  113. As the biggest Patriots fan I think damage from Deflategate is already done. Fair or not, we have a history of shall I say bending the rules a little. Two things stick out to me when it comes to Deflategate

    1) TB12 is on the record admitting to liking under inflated footballs
    2) Our RBs have low fumble rates

    It’s hard for me get past these 2 facts and just dismiss Deflategate as a 100% frame up job. At this point we should only look forward to hopefully winning a SB without any taint or asterisks as our haters put it. We have a great organization here led by the greatest QB-coach combo in history. I don’t see why we can’t do it. Let’s go Pats nation.

  114. Pat’sfan4 : A Pat’s fan admitting all this is refreshing. Just because other fans don’t like their cheating and skirting the rules doesn’t mean we hate them at all as other Pat’s fans seem to think.If any team cheats,they should pay the price,yes even my Hawks.

    You are clearly not a Pats fan. Why would you assume the pats cheated until the report comes out? Most NFL QBs like under-inflated balls. And The Vikings have a lower fumble rate. Does that make them cheaters, too?

  116. patsfan4lifesbchamps: Troll much?

    1) Aaron Rodgers is on record saying he likes over-inflated footballs and regularly tries to get them past the refs. Which is stronger evidence? A preference, or a preference and an admission of an attempt to skirt the rules (i.e. cheat)?

    2) The fumble rate stat is crap. Disproved over and over. Look it up.

    There is nothing refreshing about giving in to hysteria and hyperbole.

  117. gacoltfan: question for you if the refs don’t take care out of Aaron Rodgers footballs is that cheating? Because he is playing with a over inflated ball

  118. Everyone is still confusing “inflation” with “pressure”

    There were NO under-inflated footballs.

    repeat,

    There were NO under-inflated footballs.

    There were footballs that were AT A LOWER PRESSURE that the person analyzing them expected.

    Why? Simply because that person did not know that air pressure drops as temperature drops.

    A football at 72 degrees and 12.5 psi with go down to 11.3 psi at 48 degrees, WITH NO DEFLATION (no air being taken out) WHATSOEVER.

    all day, every day, in our universe

  119. She’s not a NE fan and you, marian, are quite clueless (is that better?)

  120. Regardless of who did/didn’t do what …

    1. The NFL will again do what ever it takes to hide the truth. Just like with the spygate nonsense, there will be bits of truth but not the whole truth. We’ll again have more questions when the Wells report is issued and the NFL will again refuse further comment.

    2. Also, just as with the spygate nonsense, the NFL will really try to screw NE over again. When Kraft challenged the NFL, he ensured it.

    3. If the NFL was informed by IND before the game that something fishy might happen, why did the NFL take no action (no discussion, no warnings) in advance of the AFCCG to protect “the integrity of the game”???????????

    4. The NFL will disclose next to nothing about their misdeeds (complicity, stealing gameballs intended for charity, leaks to the media, etc.) in all of this.

    5. Transparency does not apply to the NFL. With the NFL, opaque is the new transparent.

    Rogers said “sometimes they catch it and other times they don’t”. He never said they always take some air out.

    Most likely to verify what Belichick said at the press conference regarding how the team prepares footballs.

    Completely expected.

  124. The Patriots were 100% busted when the refs remeasured the balls and all were low, 11/12 were at least 2 psi low. There are a lot of people suggesting that the balls being sold alters the findings, which it doesn’t. First, this isn’t a court of law so evidence doesn’t need to be preserved. The NFL (and any future arbitrator) can rely on the testimony of refs who tested the balls at halftime. Second, preserving the balls is impossible because air pressure decreases over time due to the porous membrane of the ball’s texture & that the balls could be altered by anyone who touches them after the fact. Simply, this is a 1 time event & it will be tough to prove habitual cheating (which we all know occurred) in the absence of a corroborating witness who was part of the process of preparing the balls. But, they are busted for the 1 time event. And, it isn’t far fetched to think that there would be someone who would tell the truth (unlike Brady & Belicheat). Keep in mind, these people work for & have allegiance to the organization, but their whole career could be destroyed if they are found to lie to investigators. Will everyone involved (which would likely be several people) take that risk? We’ll see…

  125. The Patriots were 100% busted when the refs remeasured the balls and all were low, 11/12 were at least 2 psi low.

    I stopped reading here. Patriots Hater really are desperate enough to believe anything that suits what they’d like to think….no matter how many times it’s been shown to be wrong. 🙂

  126. “I stopped reading here.”

    Was just about to say the same. Facts don’t matter to trolls like this guy. I doubt there’s ever been a team in Pro sports history that resides so deeply in the heads of haters quite like our Patriots.

    Keep fighting the good fight brother

  127. Why would I do that??
    Patriots are World Champions AGAIN!!!
    …..& I release you

  128. I doubt there’s ever been a team in Pro sports history that resides so deeply in the heads of haters quite like our Patriots.

    Closest would be the 90’s Bulls, maybe?

  129. I never have actually hated the Pat’s,just don’t like the fact that cheating seems to be a pattern with them,much like skirting the rules.Has nothing whatsoever to do with hatred.

  130. Think it’s funny that Pat’s fans actually believe that fans from 31 other teams hate the Pat’s.Guess it has nothing to do with their cheating and bending the rules – That would just be to close to the truth !!

  131. Actually we Pats fans know exactly why the Pats are not liked… They just keep on winning & are great year after year… Really not to hard to figure out, they do it consistently & fans of other teams have to point the finger elsewhere & blame them for their woes instead of holding their own organizations accountable for it’s failures….it’s just easier to do that…. Doesn’t make you right but hey if it helps you get rid of your frustration & sleep better then I say knock yourself out!!
    World Champions AGAIN!!!
    Looking good to repeat too!!!
    Go Pats
    Drive for 5!!!!!

  132. “…One of the things that he would be asked to look for: Was it just one game?”
    —————————————

    He’s talking about the NFL employee who stole balls and tried to substitute another…. How many games? How many balls?
    Busted!

  133. Here are the facts. Judge for yourself what they Mean.

    from years 2000-2006 before teams provided their own balls.

    Fumbles by Pats 171

    Fumbles by opp 170

    —–

    You got your facts wrong dude. You are looking at lost fumbles, not total fumbles. For total fumbles, from 2007-2014, the Atlanta Falcons were the best. From 2002-2010, Colts were the best on average (Manning’s years).
