    Belichick announced today that he didn't know anything about the balls being deflated. The problem I have is he didn't say anything like he's going to try to get to the bottom of it. He was about as forthcoming as he usually is. I'd think that most General Managers would be all about finding the cheaters and punishing them.

    So, what do you think? Did he know and is lying or did he really not know?

    He may have, as they say on the cop shows, plausible deniability, which means he approved but didn't know about it.

    For the record, I'm not a Patriots fan or hater. I am a Seattle hater so I'm rooting for the Pats. As I said earlier, I'd be rooting for ISIS if they were playing Seattle.

    Sorry, somehow I made it so you can't tell who voted for what. I don't know what I did. I voted that gwartney is a lousy poll maker.

    Dude seems like a compulsive micromanager, bet nothing happens in that organization that he doesn't have some sort of input on.

    Coach of the Saints was found not to have been a direct part of putting bounties on players head and was given a year suspension. :dontknow:

    The spygate and deflategate don't bother me at all. Its an awful defense, but my guess is all teams do it - the Patriots just got caught and they are the best team in our era, thus the public will take anything against them and roll with it.

    I think Belichick is a great coach for coming up with a plan on Sunday and making adjustments at halftime - I don't think anybody could argue with that.

    I think he is an AWFUL GM - terrible at drafting - AWFUL

    I think he will go down as one of the best, but I also think he hitched his ride to Tom Brady and is along for the ride. Without Brady, he would be an average coach or defensive coordinator IMO

    none of this matters because, they never checked the air pressure or weights on Indy's twelve footballs.

    if they wanted to show a contrast, which would have made the point that the Pats balls were tampered with, they would have inspected and released the results on all 24 balls. this is nothing more than the media getting back at Belichick for punking them for 15 years.
