With the impending Super Bowl this Sunday there has been MUCH debate on whether or not the New England Patriots cheated by taking air out of their footballs, making them easier to grasp for some of the players, during the AFC championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. This debate has summarily been dubbed Deflate-Gate.
There has been so much speculation as to what may or may not have happened with the balls that day. Did the Patriots cheat (have they cheated before?)? Would the momentum of the Colts team been stronger had things gone differently? Was the integrity of the game affected? What, if anything, is going to come of this situation should it be proved that the balls were altered? What does this say about the NFL as a whole? With each question that arises there are so many more that can be asked. With all of the “what if’s” and “but, what about’s” this could go on for a long time.
As True Blue Colts fans, we here at Hallett say enough is enough! Despite all of the various opinions and the different angles that this story can be looked at the bottom line is everyone needs to let it go. Let the NFL conduct whatever investigation they have left to conduct and may outcome be as appropriate as it can be. After all folks, it is just a game!
