Ramblin Gambler Posted January 21, 2015 Share Posted January 21, 2015 Just read the same report, as BMC stated. Maybe I have to much faith in the team,but wouldn't the Colts have had the same advantaged, as the Patriots? No for 2 reasons. First, the balls are separate. There are patriot balls, and there are colts balls. Whichever team is on offense should have it's ball out there. Second, not all QBs like under-inflated balls. They're saying Brady said in an interview in 2011 that he likes less pressure in his balls. Some of the QB announcers are saying it comes down to hand size. Guys with big hands prefer more inflation. Now retired QBs are coming out talking about how they would pay off the ball boys. I think Brad Johnson said he paid the ball boy $7500 in a superbowl to either tamper with his balls, or make sure they weren't tampered with. I can't remember which. He said it was to make sure they weren't slick. I think i heard in the past that game balls were allowed to be broken in, but the kicking balls were not. The ball boys are not NFL employees, by the way. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
