NFL investigation of DEFLATE-GATE just got real!  ESPN says 11 of the 12 balls given to the Patriots for Sunday's game were under-inflated by TWO pounds-per-square-inch less than is required by NFL regulations.  The NFL still hasn't commented on whether it'll punish the team.  Sources close to the investigation say that the NFL is "disappointed."  A slightly deflated ball in cold and rainy weather is much easier to throw and catch.  Thus, giving the Patriots an unfair advantage in the AFC Championship against the Indianapolis Colts.

This isn't the first high profile cheating scandal the Patriots have been involved in.  Back in 2007 the New England Patriots were caught filming New York Jets' practices.  They were fined $500,000 and lost a first round draft pick.

Aside from the deflated ball jokes.  The funniest part of this entire "scandal" to me is the video below.  Before I posted this video my vine had a total of 7,000 views.  This vine alone has almost 10,000 views in less than 48 hours.
