Pity Tom Brady: Zero wins and two losses in Superbowls, and three disqualifications as a result of the Bellichick video-taping of opponent’s playbooks from those opponents’ very own sidelines (a Patriot employee on the wrong side of the field in order to cheat!), and now, as Tom prepares for his sixth Superbowl appearance (maybe he’ll finally win one?), he and his team stand accused of using footballs that were intentionally two pounds under-weight in the victory over the Colts.
Dan Wetzel of Yahoo News shows that this latest Patriots cheating is no minor offense:
Eleven footballs the New England Patriots brought to Sunday’s AFC championship game have now been determined by the NFL to be under-inflated – by 2 full pounds – according to ESPN, which cited the preliminary findings of a league investigation.
The home team in an NFL game is required to provide 12 footballs (plus 12 backups). Yet almost all of them came in at the same, illegal level, 2 pounds lighter? The ball is supposed to be inflated to between 12.5 pounds and 13.5 pounds per square inch, so 16 percent below the legal minimum.
That’s not a little. Not the number of under-inflated balls, not the amount they are under-inflated. <Yahoo Sports, link>
So the Patriots stacked the deck — AGAIN — in their own favor via rule breaking in order to win a football game. Brady and Bellichick are so desperate to win that they can’t help but cheat, cementing for all time their status as con-artists.
And so I must now reveal again the sorry state of Tom Brady’s soul — weighed down by the Fraudulent Rings from three stolen Superbowls — Tom Brady Baggins.
The rings are so heavy now…
Truth and justice and winning fair-and-square have been eclipsed by the power of the Rings…the stolen rings….that Tom Brady Baggins must return to Mount Doom so that his soul may be cleansed and so that he may yet win a True Ring.
This year is already lost, Tom Baggins — whoops, you did it again.
