Green eyed monster all over this thread.
The "Puffy Coat" theory!
We have entered "this could have been a Seinfeld episode" territory.
We have reached the pinnacle. I promise never to participate in these threads again. Thanks for the chuckle.
You don't have to believe that he's supposed to "deflate a puffy coat" to understand that the text was sent at an away game and also said "give somebody that jacket", and on live TV you can can see him holding a jacket at approximately the same time. I don't know what it was about, but it couldn't have been about deflating footballs.
No. It was about a "Puffy Coat"
There's a verb...deflate and then the words "and give somebody that jacket". Who the hell knows?
Maybe this. Inflatable jacket warms up with puffs of air or argon
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.
Exponent Boasts About Correct DeflateGate Conclusions In Bizarre New York Times Feature Story
You have a writer that hates the Patriots writing a fluff piece on the "science" firm that suspended Brady.
Hmm...maybe it's the pats fan I'm me or maybe the engineer or maybe just the plain fact of how about you ask the person that hates you most in the world to write something about you. Hmmm....total credible fluff piece.
No he didn't.
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.
Thank God science has finally brought the malfeasant Brady to justice.
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!!!
Exponent just got blown out of the water: Science says Patriots never tampered footballs
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.
Dude let it go WTF.
Take your own advice. Last week you were all over this.
I wonder what The Deflater thinks of that article?
...get over it...
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)
