While many fans want the Patriots to be disqualified from the Super Bowl after they were accused of deflating game balls, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that there are ‘no findings of wrong doing.’
The New England Patriots are under a lot of scrutiny after they were accused of cheating in the AFC championship game, leading to many wanting the team to be disqualified from the Super Bowl. But is there really any evidence from the accusation? Here’s what we know.
New England Patriots ‘Deflate-Gate’: No Evidence Team Broke The Rules
The Patriots are being accused of deflating 11 of 12 balls in the Jan. 18 game, but does the NFL have enough proof the Patriots are in the wrong?
“The NFL has no findings against the Patriots of wrong doing because the refs never properly examined the balls correctly in the first place,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “And they never imagined it to get this crazy and out of hand but they want to make a statement of no wrong doing by Monday after the Pro Bowl. They want the focus to be all about the Super Bowl!”
The situation has sure seemed to get out of hand, especially because there was an eerily similar situation of another alleged cheating by the Patriots.
“A few years ago the Patriots were accused of taping the St. Louis Rams before the Super Bowl, and that was found not to be true, this deflated balls issue is looking to be a similar situation because the NFL has found nothing wrong with the Patriots preparation during the game,” our source continues. Seems odd, doesn’t it?
Tom Brady Reveals He Had Nothing To Do With Deflated Balls
“I didn’t alter the ball in any way,” Tom said to the press. ““I have a process that I go through where before the game I go through and pick the balls that I want to use. When I pick those balls out, at that point, to me they’re perfect. I don’t want anyone touching the balls after that, I don’t want anyone rubbing them.”
This is the game that led them to the Super Bowl, so many are of course jumping on this as a wrong doing of the Patriots to get ahead.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think the Patriots should be disqualified, or is there not enough evidence to accuse them of such? Sound off below!
