I love this response on the New England Patriots’ so-called ‘deflategate’ scandal from Raiders Head Coach Jack Del Rio. SB Nation:
I think there are some similarities in terms of an overreaction, from my standpoint. I think it was a little bit overdone, but that’s somebody else’s problem right now.
Everybody understands that quarterbacks all want to get the balls how they like them, and why not?. They throw these balls around, and one of the reasons the sport is so popular is the ability of guys like Peyton (Manning) and Brady to throw the ball the way they do.
It’s just an overreaction.
