The entire DeflateGate report from Ted Wells has been released and it is 243 pages long and appears to be mostly bullshit.
There are a lot of vague accusations in there, like when it says Patriots "probably" intentionally deflated balls and Brady was "generally aware." Yea, okay. Just like how we know, as a society, that there is "probably" alien life somewhere in the Universe and we are "generally aware" of them.
It also says that is was "unlikely that an equipment assistant and a locker room attendant would deflate game balls without Tom Brady's knowledge and approval." So, they are just assuming Brady ordered these guys to cheat and was aware of it? What a friggin lazy investigation.
The report ends with, "based on the evidence developed in connection with the investigation and summarized in this Report, we have concluded that it is more probable than not that New England Patriots personnel participated in violations of the NFL Playing Rules and were involved in a deliberate attempt to circumvent those rules."
Wow, what a half assed accusation. And what a friggin waste of 103 days. So basically, there is no definitive evidence that Tom Brady or Bill Belichick or anyone in the organization ordered balls to be deflated below regulation. Good job, Mr. Commission.
What sucks is the national headlines will read, "Tom Brady Probably Knew About Deflated Balls" and all the Patriots haters will think he ordered them to be deflated under regulation. Fuck em.
