Deflate-gate Report Out
Ted Wells independent investigation finally turned over to the NFL
After 243 (!!!) pages, it has been determined that the New England Patriots were believed to have deliberately deflated the footballs used in the AFC Championship Game
Based on the evidence developed in connection with the investigation and summarized in this Report, we have concluded that it is more probable than not that New England Patriots personnel participated in violations of the NFL Playing Rules and were involved in a deliberate attempt to circumvent those rules. In particular, we conclude that it is more probable than not that Jim McNally and John Jastremski participated in a deliberate plan to circumvent the rules by releasing air from Patriots game balls after the examination of the footballs by NFL game officials at the AFC Championship Game.
And remember Tom Brady’s defiance in a press conference claiming no knowledge?
We nevertheless believe, based on the totality of the evidence, that it is more probable than not that Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities of McNally and Jastremski involving the release of air from Patriots game balls.
