Patriots Balls: Deflate-Gate

Issue

The NFL investigation of New England Patriots continues to inflate after deflating footballs were found for Sunday night’s AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts. With the poor weather and heavy rain, the deflated balls would have been much easier for the Patriots to grip than the balls that were inflated to their required weight.

The New England Patriots could possibly be stripped of some draft picks, if found guilty. This would not be the first time the Patriots are in a negative situation, where success is surrounded by controversy, but not the type of distraction the team needs as the players prepare for Super Bowl XLIX with the Seattle Seahawks.
