In Topic: RG3 Blames Poor Performance from last year on Ankle Injury

Today, 12:09 PM

didn't read the link. Is he complaining about an injury that occurred at the end of the 2012 season for his 2014 performance? Don't really care about Bob except to make fun of the Redskins fans at work.

So I look for it to come out at some point that they put warm air in the balls at 12.5 PSI.  There is no rule saying the PSI has to be there at a certain temperature, or what temperature the air inflating them was. 


Ref checks, balls check out, then they cool off,...boom 10.5 PSI.  Everyone still pissed off, but no rule broken technically and therefore not guilty--  


Thats smart just like the crazy formations or running around an endzone to run a clock out. No rule against it. 


I don't this comparison is the same. The eligible vs non-eligible declaration is gamesmanship. Completely legal. I could see the rules committee rule on this tactic (maybe allow defensive substitutions even if the offense did not, but the offense did have players change declaration before allowing the snap to occur) No hurry up offense if players are changing declarations while staying on the field. Dunno.


In your example of filling up with hot air at the minimum PSI violates the rule even if this specific process is not spelled out. You know that the ball would lose quite a bit PSI to go below the minimum during the course of the game. If the balls had just been .5 PSI lower to 12 PSI total using room temp air, then this story would be dead. You'd still have detractors out there, but to use a loophole because the rule didn't spell out every single possibility is still a violation.

Been watching The Fall, the Netflix series with Gilliam Anderson. Great cerebral show, well-acted and deep characters. Enjoying it.


Better than I expected.


Watched Broadchurch as well, similar to the Killing in structure.

It's a teaser, so I can't form an opinion quite yet.
