If it doesn't matter, then why are you commenting on it and trying to hijack the topic?

For the OP, I"heard" on the radio that 11 of the 12 game balls were under-inflated. The announcers mentioned that the penalty for deliberately doing that is a $25K fine, payable by the team. The announcers then mentioned that $25K is pretty cheap if it gets you into a Superbowl.

I don't know if the Patriots (or anybody else) deflated the balls to cheat or not. The fact that NE scored 20 more points after the under-inflation was discovered would seem to indicate not. It could be something as simple (or stupid) as a pressure gauge was giving improper readings or some bozo didn't know what the proper inflation pressure was. It could also be that somebody wanted to cheat. Hopefully the investigation figures that out and then lets all of us know.

Now, if NE cheated, I don't think they should be in the Superbowl.
