    "Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Tuesday he has seen enough of the NFL's investigation of fake crowd noise at Atlanta's home games to acknowledge wrongdoing.The NFL is trying to determine if the Falcons pumped artificial crowd noise into the Georgia Dome during huddles for home games the past two years. Apparently, the answer is yes."

    "The NFL is expected to issue the results of its investigation in the next few weeks. "We cooperated fully" with the investigation, Blank said. "We certainly support the integrity of the league, the integrity of fair competition and the integrity of the shield," he said. "We are not happy about it."

    Well, it sure didn't work.

    But you do get suspicous at why anyone would cheer for the Falcons.

    The Pats won, so now there is a need to deflect from that fact they are habitual cheaters.

    Goodell is the Wizard of Oz. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN RUNNING THE OUT OF CONTROL OFF FIELD VIOLENT NFL. Just look at the practice of rock hard winter balls being deflated a bit and the Falcons and whoever else. :snicker:

    They've been cheating Cleveland for years, but that's not breaking the rules.

    And he'll keep his $40 million a year job as long as he keeps sucking off the owners (especially Kraft).

    zackly and Ted Wells will come back reporting that the investigation could not "definitively" ascertain culpability and then cloud the issue by making a bunch of needless ball safety recommendations. Just like Goodell is paying him to do.

    Are any of you football fans getting sick of this? I don't mean the "cheating" I mean this crazy GOTCHA bullshit of the past few years. You got morons who couldn't name the QB and coach of their local teams all up in arms about something the NFL is doing. A real fan having a real complaint is fine but these fly by jackoffs bitching about FOOTBALL while having no idea about what the taxes on their paychecks mean annoy me greatly.

    Off soapbox....thank you.

    I think all this "cheating" crap is BS, as it's gone on for decades in the NFL and every other sport. Spying, deflating cold footballs, pumped in noise, etc. Goodell is trying to fool people. He's horrible and he loves deflect. Always has.

    The Giants used to raise and lower the fire doors, the Raiders to cut the headphones of the opposite team, the Steeler fans used to pull the fire alarms all night in the other teams hotel, the Pats in one game ran a damn snow plow onto the field before a field goal attempt....shit goes down.

    It is not the real football fan that bothers me if they bitch about this. It is the asshole people who know NOTHING about the game but pick something with the NFL as their big cause to be upset about. It is safe and costs them nothing.

    The Falcons cheating almost paid off with an NFC South title to go along with their losing record.

    I'm surprised that Arthur Blank didn't fire hipster GM Thomas Dimitroff along with Mike Smith, although at least new coach Quinn will have final say over the roster.
