On Thursday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said that he felt “shocked” when he was told about the claims of the Patriots using deflated footballs after officials inspected them prior to the title game of the AFC on Sunday. Pay per head services can see how problematic this “deflate-gate” is proving to be, and would really like to see how things will play out.
The news conference held by Belichick, that lasted 11 minutes, was all about “deflate-gate”, and NFL fans don’t find this the least bit surprising, considering the controversy involving the deflated footballs. The coach said that his team is completely cooperating with the investigation held by the league, and until Monday morning they did not know anything about this issue.
“I was shocked to learn of the footballs on Monday. I had no knowledge until Monday morning,” said the coach.
The league discovered that 11 out of the 12 footballs used by the Patriots were inflated well below what is required by the NFL, as reported by sources, and fans everywhere following the NFL are still surprised by the news
“In my entire coaching career, I have never talked to any player or staff member about football air pressure,” the coach said, and now many fans simply don’t know what to think.
Belichick said that due to controversy of the team using deflated balls, his players will begin practicing with footballs that are overinflated.
“No further comment on NFL investigation, and I’ve told you all I know from my perspective on the subject,” said the coach, repeating quite a few times, “I’ve told you everything I know.”
Under the rules of the NFL, once the footballs have been approved they cannot be modified in any way. In the case that someone is found violating league rules and trying to alter the footballs, the person can be issued a fine of $25,000 and could be punished even more, and many fans hope that this never happens.
Fans following the Patriots and the NFL would like to see what the outcome of the league’s investigation will be, as they know that this turned out to be a very serious matter. Developments will be very closely monitored by pay per head services. Hopefully everything will run as smoothly as possible and the Patriots will fully cooperate so this problem can be completely resolved.
