DEFLATE GATE

I haven’t paid all that much attention to the NFL’s DeflateGate scandal. I listen to reports about it just about every day on Fox News and I read the headlines about it on the Drudge Report; but I don’t spend hardly any time dwelling on them. Even so, it’s difficult to avoid the controversy. I took my car in for a safety inspection and while I was waiting I had to listen to a shouting match between another customer and the man behind the counter over whether Tom Brady deflated the 12 balls or not.

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m not a football fan. I watch the Redskins play when they are 10 and 0, and I usually watch the Super Bowl, mostly for the commercials. Not sure how much longer that will be necessary because all the Super Bowl commercials now are available on the internet before the game. No doubt, however, that this Super Bowl will be among the most watched ever. I’m not sure what fans expect to see other than a good football game; but I have an idea how to put this entire matter to bed once and for all. Before the start of the game the chief referee should take the game ball used by the Patriots, place it on the 50-yard line and execute it. He should take a pistol and shoot the ball . After all, it’s the ball itself that is the culprit, isn’t it. It allowed someone to deflate it, or it got some bad air and couldn’t keep it down. Once they carry the dead ball off the playing field, the game could proceed and we can all forget about this silliness and worry about more important things like terrorism, Iran’s nuclear ambitions and Russia’s bad manners.

    Nobody ever mentioned that the referee takes the ball and places it in front of the center and puts the ball into play. It is the responsibility of the referee to claim that the ball is legal to put in play. The referee is paid by the NFL. Why wasn’t this ever mentioned ?
