    Fan Sets Up Patriots GoFundMe Page to Pay the Team’s Deflategate Fine. Really.

    As if this whole Deflategate/Wells Report nonsense wasn’t already absurd enough, last night a New England Patriots fan set up a Patriots GoFundMe page seeking to raise $1 million in order to pay the team’s fine. And yes, it’s totally serious. “We obviously know we won’t reach One Million Dollars,” the campaign description says. “However […]

    Agent Blasts Tom Brady Suspension, Says Appeal Is Coming

    Well here’s a shocker. NFL superagent Don Yee has released an official statement blasting the Tom Brady suspension and vowing to appeal the “ridiculous” punishment handed out to his client. Yee says the outcome of the Wells investigation was “pre-determined” and the suspension “ridiculous.” Then he goes on the offensive and starts attacking the NFL […]

    Tom Brady Suspended, Patriots Fined For DelafteGate

    Barring an appeal (which wouldn’t surprise me one bit), it appears as though the books have finally been closed on the DeflateGate investigation, with the findings resulting in a loss of money and picks for the Patriots, and Tom Brady suspended. We’ll start with Brady, who was determined to have likely been “at least generally aware” […]

    Jameis Winston Rape Case: No. 1 Draft Pick Files Lawsuit Against Accuser

    The Jameis Winston rape case took an unexpected turn on Monday. In April, just two weeks before the 2015 NFL Draft, Erica Kinsman, the woman who accused Winston of raping her back in 2012, filed a civil lawsuit against Winston alleging rape, assault, false imprisonment, and emotional distress. Now, the top pick in the NFL […]

    Jags First-Round Pick Dante Fowler Tears ACL, Out for Season (Video)

    Rough news for Jacksonville fans, and for Dante Fowler. The #3 overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft blew out his ACL in the first hour of mini-camp, slipping on the turf. He’s out for the season and looking at a ten month rehab schedule. That’s really rough. Fortunately, Dante Fowler has been projecting an insanely […]

    Jon Stewart Puts Deflategate in Perspective, of Course (Video)

    There are a few crusaders in the media (television, mostly) who will lift our collective heads up from whatever scandal we’re absorbed in, and slap us across the face. One of those guys is Jon Stewart, and one of those scandals is Deflategate. So it’s no surprise that he went on an eight-minute tear about […]

    Gronk on Wells Report: You Can Deflate Deez Nuts! (Video)

    Earlier I claimed that the text message exchange between Jim NcNally and John Jastremski was the best thing to come from the Wells Report, which was released earlier today. It still is, but this comment on the report from Rob Gronkowski, which he released via Bleacher Report’s Uninterrupted, is a close second: As Gronk mentions […]

    DeflateGate: Pats Employees Blast Tom Brady In Hilarious Text Exchange

    The Wells Report was finally released earlier today and as it turns out, two New England Patriots employees were responsible for deflating the balls being used by the Pats’ offense during their AFC Championship victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

    Wells Report Released: Pats Employees Likely Deflated Balls

    Remember DeflateGate?  You probably forgot about the accusations levied against the New England Patriots for delfating footballs during their AFC Championship Game around a week or two after they won the Super Bowl in early February.  But President Obama was kind enough to remind us all about it during the Pats’ visit to the White […]
