As for the Spygate thing, the Broncos were caught and penalized for doing the exact same thing 3 years later. No big deal was made of it and I only know because it was against the 49ers (my team). -JayT
So they got caught and were penalized. What's the point?
No question it's bigger cause it's the Pats.
This has gotten out of control from the beginning. But when Brady comes out and says he doesn't know or doesn't care about what the football is inflated to, people know it's a blatant lie. Just made it worse. Kraft sticking up for lies doesn't change much.
Also the punishment wasn't made by Goodell, it was Troy Vincent. Though Goodell could have overruled.
