    They said nothing in that article. The guy was saying we took everything into account but didn't even know when the balls were tested. Also Brady destroyed his phone because that's his privacy...they did hand over the requested logs to the NFL just not his phone which probably has some very interesting stuff.

    Do you think it refers to balls?

    Let's see how intelligent you are. What is the context there?

    Apparently, this schmo, the guy making $8.75 an hour on Sundays, a 35 year old who thinks adolescent humor is funny, is such a mastermind that he withstood 4 separate 6 hour sessions of questions from ex-FBI officials, and they didn't trip him up even once!!! Amazing.

    Violet Beauregard comes to mind.

    I'm actually asking seriously. What the hell could that tweet be about? I'm just offering up one possible reading. I could be wrong. What else? And somehow these geniuses came out of a room of ex-FBI guys working for Wells after many hours and 4 separate meetings, and we don't even know anything about their explanations for the texts, etc. You're telling me the NFL didn't find a smoking gun there? What a waste of money.

    I dont want to hear or think about it anymore. Im satisfied with the "puffy coat". In 50 years it will have a similar connotation as "grassy knoll"

    You do want to hear and think about it. Obviously you do.

    God this is going to be an incredible 30 for 30 like 1.5 years after Brady retires. They might make it into an OJ-esque mini-series. There's so many angles: the incident itself and the game context, the media leaks, the wrong tweet that began the frenzy, the backstage staff thrust into the spotlight, Boston's provincialism, the Kraft vs. Goodell angle, Goodell and the CBA, the debates among physicists, the "routine" cell phone destruction, the labor law and union impacts, Ted Wells and his technicolor dream report, Pats' cheating history and Belichick's reputation, the courtroom analysis, judges disagreements and interpretations, Garoppolo's debut during the suspension and his contract implications, oh and Tom Brady's legacy.

    The idea that the Boston office wasn't consulted for fear of bias of Patriots fans is berserk in the extreme.

    They don't trust their own scientists because of bias!!!!!!!!

    As scientists, they should want every data point scrutinized and contested.

    Never mind the very idea that scientists who favor the Patriots might be biased but that those who hate the Patriots are not!!!

    What amount of nefarious deflation actually occurred? I believe it’s zero.
    ...
    Despite the recent statement from the scientific consulting firm Exponent defending its investigation, I am 100% convinced that there was no illegal deflation
    .

    But wait, this guy is an MIT Mech Eng professor. MIT is in Boston. Therefore he must be biased. QED.

    There's a lot of actual science in this article. I don't think the mob is interested in that.

    Philadelphia Eagles fan. Obviously, MIT likes to hire faculty raised outside of Massachusetts.

    All over what? Deflate gate? I haven't given a crap about it in ages, let me know when I was all over it because I must have been extremely hammered. (not to say that didn't happen)

    Good point. I thought you were masquerading as Deepster. Note: I didn't start this thread last week.

    Well, read the first post. I was tagged and pinged. But at least everyone can see now that some people don't like facts and science or even truth. The last link proves that.

    Yeah, sorry 'bout that @upstater . I confess to a total "dump and run" with this thread, with the sole purpose of instigating what transpired. I knew I had a busy day ahead of me that day and would be unable to respond, and I didn't even read the article before posting it. I simply saw that it was the featured article in my NYT app and knew from the headline and subtitle that it would piss you off and annoy you to no end.

    And, sadly, that prospect made me eager with anticipation of returning later that day to open this thread like a present under the tree on Christmas morning.

    Your bump today was a bonus reminder of that, so thanks.

    Hahaha. And we all knew that. But it's the nature of the boneyard to NOT be above those things, so of course we all respectively jump right in.

    If all political discussions don't end with 'both candidates stink', someone hasn't been using their brains this year.

    I'm an educator. As long as I can teach you guys basic facts about science, and well basic facts about facts, I am happy to do so. You may want to regift to sons and daughters.
