former CFL player cheating (deflate gate II)

by Access_Media » Wed Nov 09, 2016 12:38 pm

Making the rounds today that the Seahawks will be investigated for cheating. The accused is Jon Ryan punter of seahawks. Who was a punter for the Blue Bombers in Winnipeg.

Evidence is clear he is using a deflated ball. And who do the Seahawks play this Sunday night? The Patriots.

Carroll and Ryan could be suspended for more than 6 games which would be huge for the Seahawks if the NFL comes down middle of the season.

Can you at least post links to the stuff you're talking about?

This is the image you're referring to I assume, from Monday night.

That's just what a football looks like when kicked.

Also, kicking balls are handled by the NFL, so this is a non-story.

Tom Brady already knows that. Everyone knows that. Game balls are supplied by the home team, kicking balls are specially marked and delivered straight from the manufacturer.

This is totally different than the Brady issue.

no its not. the balls are used by the players prior to the game and are picked by the coaches and players. same as game balls for QB's.

The NFL could suspend him. its big talk everywhere.

I just showed you the rule. Kicking balls are not used by the players prior to the game. They're brand new footballs.

So you're saying that the footballs provided to the officials in a sealed box by the manufacturers are then given to the teams prior to the game to practice with, and could be tampered with while in the teams' possession? Interesting. I suppose the kickers have to practice with something in warm-up.

Twelve (12) new footballs, sealed in a special box and shipped by the manufacturer, will be opened in the officials’ locker room two hours prior to the starting time of the game. These balls are to be specially marked with the letter "k" and used exclusively for the kicking game.

He gets his "facts" from random bullshit on Facebook. This has been going around for days amongst people who think there's a vast conspiracy against the Patriots.

We seem to get those every now and then around here. Not sure if it's the same guy, or if we just draw in a lot of dumber than usual trolls.

Pretty much everything the OP posts qualifies for 3 so why is nothing done? This is a part of the reason I don't come here often anymore.

then it must not be big news if i didn't know about it. i mean it talked about on every single sports show yesterday and today.

even during the patriots press conference today.

then again. it took 3 weeks for the media to pick on tom brady after the colts made it known to the broadcast team during the coaches post game show.
