Patriots Deflategate

Is it me or because i play paintball i can understand how simple the psi can change from hot to cold more so than NFL officials? The NFL rulebook says the balls have to be filled and checked in 70'F environment (locker room). So say theyre filed to the 12.5 psi inside then they come into 45'F weather and sit there and cool off. Wouldnt it be common sense to say the psi will drop a little (1-2psi). How else would 11 out of 12 footballs have this issue unless we have uncovered a conspiracy theory that rivals the jfk assassination.

Pats would have won either way, I don't get why everyone's making such a huge deal out of this.

Simple economics. Buying cheap footballs that won't hold air rather than spend the money on good equipment.

One of the guys in my office found a article going through the actual math (Ideal Gas Law) showing that the balls can and would go down at least .4 psi just due to the weather.

It dosen't matter what rule they broke (if they actually broke it), it's the principle.

Think about our "layer" rule in paintball. Lets say you play in a league that only allows one layer underneath your jersey. If you wear a wife-beater as an extra layer underneath your t-shirt, is that "extra layer" really going to make a difference whether or not you get a bounce off the chest? Probably not, but by wearing that wife-beater, you are breaking the "number of layers allowed" rule, and if caught you should be penalized.
