"Early reports suggested Indianapolis alerted the league of the issue after a second-quarter interception by D'Qwell Jackson, who gave a Patriots football to a Colts equipment man who, in turn, noticed a problem. Jackson has since told NFL.com he noticed nothing wrong. There's been no word from the equipment guy. Of course, that scenario could have happened and the NFL still could've been waiting for halftime to check the footballs. They aren't mutually exclusive."But it sounds like the NFL made that story up to cover itself. I wouldn't put it past Goodell to have ordered the balls deflated himself. That guy's a narcissistic freak.
"In the end is this going to be bigger than just a doctored football and will it be Roger Goodell, not Tom Brady, answering the most uncomfortable of allegations?"I hope so.
Kraft goes on the offensive.
"Patriots owner Robert Kraft made a surprise appearance at the team's opening news conference of Super Bowl XLIX on Monday, saying the NFL owed them an apology if its investigation over deflated footballs doesn't uncover wrongdoing."Good for him for putting the spotlight back on Goodell.
