NFL zeroed in on locker room attendant

Recommended Posts

I got this from PFT.

Per Glazer, the league has interviewed a Patriots locker room attendant who allegedly took footballs from the officials locker room after they had been inspected and approved “to another area on way to field” before the start of the game

Co-Commissioner Kraft found his fall man. I'm sure he'll get a nice severance package.

Well of course they are. This has always been the most reasonable explanation of what happened. Some ball boy let the air out of the balls.  Now, the question is, did he just act alone for reasons that are hard to explain, or was he told to do it.  If true, it really makes the science lesson on saturday even more hilarious.

He's probably just a fanboy that rubbed the balls so hard out of excitement that Brady had touched them that the PSI lowered. Man this post sounds inappropriate though.

i'm sure the fall guy isn't going to be hurting too much! New Rolex and a SB ring maybe?

Of course he was told to do it.

I don't think the league will care if it's a lone employee or not. Brady won't get Justice, but Billy B. and the team will. Brady will have to answer how he didn't know, for the rest of his career.

This could be the smoking gun? Depends on how much Kraft will pay him to say he did it on his own. It will have to be a pretty good amount because TMZ would pay a huge price to have the smoking gun.

Of course he was. I know he was.

 

But i don't have a ton of faith that the league will see it that way

Just how it was all drawn up to plan. Blame it on the ball boy and the team won't take a significant hit. Cheaters.

Now that the weather excuse is out of the way, it's pretty much fact that the Patriots cheated.

According to Fox Sports, he has been interviewed, and additionally have video. The last line in Glazer's tweet is funny, :"Still gauging if any wrong doing occured with him, but he is a strong person of interest." You have to like the word gauge !

Let's assume that this dude flips and tell the truth, that he was told to deflate the balls by Belichick, they surely lose a 1st round pick right?

Belichick would be suspended indefinately, and have to take counseling.

If that happens, they should lose a lot more than a first round pick. But yes, to start, let's take that first rounder...

You know looking back over this whole fiasco, something that seems huge now; Irsay saying he was "confident" in the NFL investigation. He knew way before we did.

IF it is true their penalty should dwarf that of bountygate.

Given:

Being repeat offenders

Covering this up, especially with those jokes of press conferences they've had

you know it's pretty sad that Irsay received almost a harsher penalty for his incident than the Pats did for Spygate---none of them were ever suspended.

Wait a second here... No one has mentioned the most amazing thing about Superman's video!

SKIP BAYLESS (The biggest Patriot fan on ESPN) COMPLETELY THREW BELICHICK UNDER THE BUS!

He accused him of cheating vs the Rams in the 2001 Super Bowl, cheating vs the Panthers in the 2003 Super Bowl, Spygate, Deflategate, gaming the injury report, and jamming headset signals.

That's what I love about Irsay. Dude hates the Patriots just as much as we do. He (maybe) set up a whole investigation that forever ruins their legacies and is a huge distraction in the two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl.

Nah, I think Bountygate was worse. But even without the repeat offender angle, and without the sloppy denials, this is way more serious than just a first rounder. Especially when there's a bunch of circumstantial evidence suggesting that this has happened in more than just one game.

The people in Boston are trying to blame Irsay, Pagano, Harbaugh, Ravens, Colts, etc. I guess it was all Mangini and the Jets, and Warner and Faulk with the Rams, the last time. It's everyone but the two amigos !

Honestly. Does anyone really think something will come of this? The NFL handed down a slap on the wrist and destroyed all the evidence the last time. Even if they take away basically a 2nd rd pick since its so late...the Pats will draft a future pro bowl lineman later anyways. We are talking perhaps the most popular franchise in the NFL for the last decade....almost Cowboy beloved. If people think something will come for this I hope they are prepared for what we will see in a couple weeks. They aren't getting anyone to admit wrong doing and this will get swept under the rug.

He will take the fall, just like Watergate.  According to the man, he will be the one who had the idea and the only one involved in doing it..  BB and Brady knew nothing about it.

I don't suspect that anything will come of it.  The equipment guy will be fired and that will be it.  He'll take the blame for all.

We've heard that the ball boy will be sent away to Sicily like Michael Corleone.

If that guy flips, he better move out of New England right away.
