Report: NFL investigation into deflate-gate centers in on Patriots attendant
Breaking news: sources tell @FOXSports the NFL has zeroed in on a locker room attendant w Patriots who allegedly took balls from officials locker room to another area on way to field. Sources say they have interviewed him and additionally have video. Still gauging if any wrong doing occurred with him but he is strong person of interest.
So both Bill Belichick and Tom Brady with a straight face profess not to know anything about deflated footballs and now out of the blue …a locker room attendant is a person of interest. Sounds like Belichick and Brady have a fall in place. The question is on whose orders did the attendant act on? It doesn’t seem likely that he did this on his own knowing that if caught there would be a fallout especially since this saga broke after the AFC Championship game. By the way, this deflating the footablls apparently was going on earlier in the season, the Colts reported it to the league back in November against the Patriots. So this isn’t a one time happening there is a pattern going on here and chance are the locker room attendant didn’t act alone, whether he was told by Belichick or Brady directly or through someone else …he is going to be the fall guy left holding the bag.
Let’s not forget that Belichick has gone on record as saying he felt “100 percent confident” that his team did not break any NFL rules.
