Very easy to have some balls set aside for Pats only. Pats ball boys would need to be in on it.

Oh. I thought the NFL had their own ball boys. Still the refs should've caught it. If not, it must not have been that big of a deal. At the end of the day, it's the defense's job to stop the offense. They didn't.

I guess it makes sense that each team wants to play with their own balls...

Here is a Yahoo report on it.

The league has guidelines on how much pressure the ball must have — between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds per square inch, weighing between 14 and 15 ounces. 

Kravitz says the fine could be a stiff one if the Patriots are found guilty.

There was a delay before the third-quarter-opening kickoff that might have included game officials investigating the balls the Patriots were using.

I remembering reading teams will soak the balls in water to break them in before a game.  Depending on the weather would factor on how much they got broken in.

It was kind of odd to me when Bellichik is using his tackle eligible shenanigans with a 21 point lead. It's almost Nixon-esque where he tries to gain an unneeded advantage.

Its not cheating to be smarter than other teams, use the rules against them, execute their plays better than anyone.

Like the spygate. Its just haterade. All teams have tape on each other. Mike Rucker once bragged that we killed mike Vick because we got their snap count.

You have a playbook and can make in game adjustments.

Only cowards and losers blame other people for their shortcomings and failures.

If you break the rules, it's cheating. In fact I'm pretty sure that's the very definition of cheating. Now go suck off brady.
