VIII. Conclusions Regarding the Game Balls Used
by the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game
Based on the evidence developed in connection with the investigation and
summarized in this Report, we have concluded that it is more probable than not that New
England Patriots personnel participated in violations of the NFL Playing Rules and were
involved in a deliberate attempt to circumvent those rules. In particular, we conclude that it ismore probable than not that Jim McNally and John Jastremski participated in a deliberate plan to

circumvent the rules by releasing air from Patriots game balls after the examination of the
footballs by NFL game officials at the AFC Championship Game. We believe that McNally and
Jastremski were aware that the inflation level of the Patriots game balls following pre-game
inspection by the game officials would be approximately 12.5 psi and planned for McNally to
deflate the balls below that level following the pre-game inspection using a needle provided by
Jastremski. Based on the evidence, we also have concluded that it is more probable than not that
Tom Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities of McNally and
Jastremski involving the release of air from Patriots game balls.

73
We do not believe that the evidence establishes that any other Patriots personnel
participated in or had knowledge of the violation of the Playing Rules or the deliberate effort to
circumvent the rules described above. In particular, we do not believe there was any wrongdoing
or knowledge of wrongdoing by Patriots ownership, Head Coach Belichick or any other Patriots
coach in the matters investigated. We also do not believe there was any wrongdoing or
knowledge of wrongdoing by Patriots Head Equipment Manager Dave Schoenfeld.

Wells finds it very likely Brady knew what was going on, but Bill and the Org clean.

Uh oh for Tom.

Doubt there's anything solid enough for punishment.

 

I haven't read the report, obviously. Just skipped to the conclusion, where Wells says he finds it likely Tom Brady knew about it. The same Tom Brady that spit out the line about "sour grapes" or whatever when he was asked. Depending on the evidence Wells cites, there might be some punishment pending for Brady. That's up to Goodell.

I think Brady should be suspended at least through our game with NE.

:D

Yeah but that would be no fun when we beat them.

All kinds of text messages from the named Pats ball handlers suggesting that Brady was dissatisfied with the balls and was particular about the way he wanted them. One of the guys calls himself "the deflator." They say they want some gifts from Brady.

 

Oh boy.

There's pics of Brady giving the guy stuff after the Ravens game. It's not just wanting, it's getting.

The halftime measurements of the Patriots game balls were recorded as follows:

Patriots Ball Blakeman Prioleau

1 11.50 11.80

2 10.85 11.20

3 11.15 11.50

4 10.70 11.00

5 11.10 11.45

6 11.60 11.95

7 11.85 12.30

8 11.10 11.55

9 10.95 11.35

10 10.50 10.90

11 10.90 11.35

 

 

Colts Ball Blakeman Prioleau

1 12.70 12.35

2 12.75 12.30

3 12.50 12.95

4 12.55 12.15

 

 

The media reports that everyone was saying were untrue are looking pretty true. All the Pats balls were under-inflated.

I don't think the Patriots needed the air to come out of the ball to beat the Colts but it is a shame that it happened that way. Now the air is out of their high flying balloons, too bad.

I guess the reports weren't sour grapes from CP, RG and etc.

I would be shocked if the Patriots do not get docked their entire 2016 draft picks to say the least.

    • Already said, but just to repeat:   He will count $18.4m against the the 2019 cap, and $6.4m against the 2020 cap. Nothing after that.    I get why they're not making an issue of the roster bonus. I don't like the precedent that it sets, but this is a rare situation. And when superstars retire and get asked to pay back bonus money, it usually goes poorly (like Calvin Johnson). So clean break, and it keeps good relations between the team and the player moving forward. 
    • Probably not but he's who we have now.  It's up to Brissett and the coaching staff to prove that they can be productive.  I have a sneaking suspicion, no evidence mind you, that Reich and Co prefer Kelly but hes got to serve his suspension. Its Jacoby's job to loose and hes got my full support, if not my full confidence.  Bottom line is Luck is gone.  Fans will move on after week 1 and the organization has already done so.  Given the circumstances i think we're in the best hand we could be.  Nothing to do now but see how it plays out.  Love Luck, grateful for the past 7 years, but hes moved on.  One day is all it's taken me to follow suit.  He's gone fans,  Colts play with the QB's they have not the one they want just like '17.  We all get to see what they're made of.  Go Colts.    
    • We can’t we’re all to busy complaining so there can be no production what so ever! I just discovered gifs a few days ago if you all can’t tell!
    • Exactly. It was dark, but I knew we were set with Andrew Luck. Our team is as good(not considering QB) as it has been in a long time. However, I do not want to be the Bengals. They consistently were are a tad bit above average, yet never could win a playoff game as the competition became to great.    Here's to hoping Brissett is the man!! 
    • The signed a waiver rather than request he return it
