Scandal with the New England Patriots, said 12 11 balls they used their 2015 AFC Championship game win against the Indianapolis Colts in the NFL well below the requirements of the calculation. Soccer science says that inclement weather may consist of about two pounds of deflated footballs. But there were players in the past that he wanted to take advantage of the air the ball intentionally manipulate your air pressure.

Why the Patriots want to inflated football? In theory, it made the balls easier for quarterback Tom Brady to host and team receivers to catch a game in rain conditions. In the team's many successful passes in the game, he could have worked in a big believer in the Patriots. As American football tradition, the team always use their own sets, soccer balls, when they're on offense, so the air ball would not be helped by their opponents, the Indianapolis Colts.

And Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Brady denied any involvement. But if the allegations are true, it would put at risk of severe punishment for the Patriots-perhaps as well as penalties and lost the project picks. And taking into account previous cases of cheating the team, he could further Tarnish their legacy, even if they win the Super Bowl XLIX.
