re: Breaking news: Non-referee entered refs locker room and took game balls - ashy larry
[quote]A dubious explanation that has been debunked. [/quote] no it hasn't. It has been backed up by more scientists than the 2 i've seen 'debunk' it: BIll Nye and NDT. Bill nye offered no explanation other than to say belichick's explanation didn't make sense as he cheered on the Seahawks. An...

re: Bob Kraft demands apology from league... WTF - ashy larry
[quote]Tweet by NDT yesterday: For the Patriots to blame a change in temperature for 15% lower pressures, the balls must have been inflated with 125 degree air. [/quote] I saw that. I like NDT, and I'm curious how he came up with that number when several other scientists disagree with him. Some...

[quote]Those guys proved a ball drops 2 PSI when temp goes from 80 to 40. Awesome [/quote] That isn't what they all said. And we don't know if the balls were were actually 2psi below. And if so, we don't know how many of them were 2 psi. There is a lot of conflicting information on the amount...

[quote]Why didn't it affect the Colts' footballs? [/quote] Who says it didn't? All we know is the the colts balls were within acceptable range before and after the game. No one said the PSI didn't drop at all. Do you know the final PSI of the colts balls? Do you know the the temp in the r...

re: Bob Kraft demands apology from league... WTF - ashy larry
[quote]Well they've done a pretty decent job of making themselves look guilty, most specifically with Belichick and his ridiculous "scientfic" explanations. I guess people have already forgotten about that. [/quote] Some people don't think it is that ridiculous: - Michael J. Naughton, chairman o...

re: SIAP: Deflategate is not about Brady and the receivers. It's about TO's (Link) - ashy larry
[quote]Doesn't look good that Brady was the main proponent of wanting to use his own balls for each game. [/quote] It only looks that way to someone that made up their mind before hearing any facts. Prior to the rule change, the home team supplied the game balls. So half of the games every QB ...

[quote]I would imagine most teams played with maxed out psi. [/quote] And you would most likely be wrong. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms brought up the fact that Aaron Rodgers likes the football inflated to the max or beyond b/c it is uncommon. Quote from Simms who spent 14 years in the NFL as a QB, ...

Green Bay plays with over-inflated (or at least maxed out at 13.5 psi) balls and is the 6th best in the league according to that graph. If under inflated balls are an advantage, why isn't green bay fumbling more? ...
