NEW YORK, NY- Whoever said “cheaters never prosper” never met Bill Belichick or the New England Patriots.
As the NFL’s investigation continues, the sports world is “busting the Patriots balls” about under-inflated balls. Here’s why. Balls used in an NFL game are supposed to be pumped up between 12 ½ to 13 ½ lbs.
Vice President Joe Biden has said he likes “soft balls” and that’s fine because he’s not playing in the National Football League. The Patriots are and the NFL has reportedly found 11 of their 12 balls were 2 lbs. lighter. This means it was easier for Tom Brady to throw and his receivers to catch.
This isn't the first time whey've been caught as pointed out in a South Park episode, “This is Bill Belichick, coach of the New England Patriots. He’s won 3 Super Bowls. How? He cheated. He even got caught cheating and nobody cared. Bill Bellichick proved that in America it’s okay to cheat as long as you cheat your way to the top.”
Cheating is un-"patriot"-ic and “Deflate Gate” is taking some of the air out of the Patriots’ victory but it won’t keep them out of the Super Bowl. "If you cheat and fail, you’re a cheater. If you cheat and succeed, you’re savvy," are more painfully wise words from South Park.
No doubt the NFL has the Patriots balls but you’d need a crystal ball to know what they’ll do next.
As for the Super Bowl, here’s a “ballsy” idea to level the playing field; let Belichick and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll cheat, and make it the most entertaining Super Bowl ever. At least it’d be a fair ball game.
