Ok, I’m reading about New England and their “deflating” the football during the AFC conference championship game. People, especially major sports media like Mike and Mike filleted the Patriots for destroying Indianapolis while using partially inflated footballs. In fact, some Twitter handle they were touting was the #1 handle this morning. Indianapolis tried to get the balls to the officials so they could measure them. Rat Hall of Famers!
What we at BSP Central want to know is why this is a bigger deal than all the other stuff going on in the NFL:
Clay Matthews kill shot on Russell Wilson: Clay Matthews tried to end Russell Wilson’s game on a kill shot. The attempted game-ender was flagged for a blindside block. I didn’t know there was a penalty for such a thing.
Mike McCarthy isn’t fired. Neither is Dom Capers. We can’t understand why. As a team five minutes from the Super Bowl, with a first down, you expect to win. Green Bay had to come back down the field and score with only a few yyyyjust to send it into overtime.
Someone outside the local is damn glad the Patriots didn’t fill those footballs full of air
