The Ted Wells Report has been filed, and it concludes that Tom Brady probably knew that the Patriots' footballs were being toyed with (LINK). This is not surprising in the least, and it doesn't bother me. The NFL needs to have a standard for their footballs, and a rule needs to be enforced or else the rule shouldn't exist. On the other hand, I just don't really care because almost everybody does it. I don't think it's fair to suspend him for it, so hand him and/or the Patriots a fine and move along. These are the little things I don't care about when guys like Leonard Little, Josh Brent, and Donte Stallworth are allowed to make millions of dollars in your league after they kill people on the roads.
I'll be honest - as a coach, I like to throw around a slightly deflated ball in practice. I don't check the pressure, but a fully inflated ball is a little harder to grip and control. But the deflation reaches a point where it becomes counterproductive, and no quarterback wants to throw around a floppy football. Tom Brady plays good football, so if the NFL needs to relax its parameters a little to include some slightly "deflated" balls, then I'm okay with it.
Hit the jump for a few good looking ladies.
