"The discovery of deflated footballs being used by the New England Patriots was not totally a case of circumstance. Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson stated that he informed the NFL several days before the AFC Championship that he thought the Patriots might be doctoring their footballs.
It was originally reported that the Colts discovered a tampered football after Colts linebackerD'Qwell Jackson intercepted Tom Brady in the second quarter of the game. Jackson hoped to keep the game ball as a souvenir, but it quickly became more important than that, as word systematically came to Grigson that the ball was under-inflated. Grigson then alerted the league office and set the whole scandal into motion.
Grigson explained that he alerted the league to his suspicions in an attempt to level the playing field. Of course, this proved to be a fruitless endeavor, as the Patriots coasted to a dominant win, 45-7."
I wonder if college teams are as predictable as the NFL. Seems like the people in Vegas might find this interesting info too.
I apologize for the source but Michael Rosenberg is out looking for malfeasance again. Hopefully this time he didn't just make shit up, but he (allegedly) tracked the number of arrests by NFL team. There were, at least to me, some surprises (Broncos, Colts on the high side, Patriots and Dolphins on the low side).
Edit: the author is actually not that Mike Rosenberg (NTMR)
