“Deflategate:” Patriots release online rebuttal to NFL report on football air pressure controversy
(CNN) — A lawyer for New England Patriots has released an extensive online rebuttal to this month’s NFL-commissioned report on the football air-pressure controversy known as “Deflategate.”
The rebuttal by lawyer Daniel L. Goldberg asserts, among other things, that the NFL’s report inappropriately dismissed scientific explanations as to why Patriots’ footballs would have naturally lost air during the January 18 AFC title game; that the report mistakes Patriots’ employees’ attempts at humor in text messages as references to a plot to deflate footballs; and that there’s no evidence that quarterback Tom Brady preferred footballs that were inflated lower than 12.5 pounds per square inch.
