Deflategate and what it teaches us about cheating

We have been talking about Deflategate all week. By now most people know the Patriots were caught with 11 deflated footballs and no one knew how they got that way. The thing that has been so interesting is watching people rationalize cheating. How many times have you heard a newscaster say “they would have won anyway”. So this was really no big deal. So would it have been a big deal if the score was closer? So rules only matter under certain circumstances? If that is true then why have rules? Last night the question was posed on Twitter “how do you explain Deflategate to children?” Some laughed off the question, but is it really funny? Are we really comfortable telling the next generation cheating is good as long as you don’t get caught. Share your thoughts.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick Know Everything about Football, but nothing about Deflategate

Bill Belichick is touted as being one of the best coaches in the NFL, and Tom Brady is regarded as one of the elite quarterbacks. Today we could call them the Know Nothing Brothers. Eleven out of twelve balls were deflated and neither of these two geniuses knew anything. When did they become so unaware? When this was first mentioned to Brady on Monday he laughed it off, but today he is at a press conference attempting to explain the unexplainable. So what will happen to this awesome twosome? Absolutely nothing. The NFL has fined Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch $20,000 for an inappropriate gesture but we haven’t heard anything about what the NFL will do to the Patriots for doing something that might have altered the game.

Bill Belichick Meets the Press and Says Absolutely Nothing

Bill Belichick speaks for about 14 minutes and he insists he had absolutely no knowledge concerning “Deflategate”. He says he knows nothing about he deflation of the balls. He says the NFL is investigating. This is much adieu about nothing. Yes, the Patriots broke the rules, but nothing is going to happen pre Super Bowl. This is the news story of the week.
