    Latest information--a locker room attendant for the officials--hired by Kraft and an employee for a decade--behaved unusually in the colts playoff game.

    He came out on the field (not normal), tried to hand a K-ball to an official to introduce into regular game play (not allowed, and again far from normal).

    And the other revelation--that this unusual behavior was passed up the line to the NFL VP of game operations--who then visited the locker room at half time and checked all the balls, finding 11 of 12 deflated. This (along with some rebuttals from Colts players themselves) seems to deflate the charge by pats fans that the whole controversy was contrived by the Colts.

    The attendant is so far refusing to talk to reporters about the incident or his behavior at the game.

    So the NFL is still trying to dig deep to help them stop looking like fools... again!

    They don't believe that in Massachusetts. Not to insult our wonderful members in that wonderful state in our wonderful union.

    We Massholes are pretty wonderful, that's for sure.

    But some of us are prepared to believe it...if it turns out to be true.

    And now it comes out that the ball in question was given to the locker room attendant by an NFL official on the field. Looks like ESPN didn't wait long enough to get their facts straight.

    ESPN is basically retracting their earlier story because there is video of the attendant being handed the ball and then walking over to give the ball to the ref. Non-story!

    "A source told Schefter that the man in charge of collecting balls for charity has been fired by the league for selling the footballs meant for charity for a profit over a period of time."

    League official, what a douchebag.

    Yep. Seems like there's a lot of hearsay, not a lot of facts.

    Whomever is leaking these things during the investigation should be fired in a loud and public manner. Regardless of the outcome, this inaccurate drip drip is a disgrace.

    The NFL's so called investigation has been a Damn joke since the onset. Of All of the purported "facts" that have been leaked, it turns out nine of them have been true, or grossly inaccurate. 11 of 12 balls....by 2 or more psi...nope. It turns out it was just one, which may or may not have been been a k ball, which may or may not have have been put in place by a ref stealing balls to sell on the side, which may or may not have been one of the refs who may or may not have "pencil whipped" the task of measuring the balls before the game.

    The whole thing is a farce, and NOT ONE single shred of credible evidence, or witness' have come forward.

    Even more of a farce are the people still in the witch hunt who can't smell the ******** because their butt hurt over the Patriots regularly cleaning their teams clock. Sad really.

    Lastly maybe an outside source should take a look at the spygate stuff. The NFL has really blown all it's credibility the past with the past few "investigations". Goodell's style of dropping the hammer hard may have concealed the fact that his organization can't conduct a fact finding mission at all.

    Looks like the Pats are going to be owed a lot of apologies they probably won't get. So they'll take it out on everyone by just beating them again...

    Wrong. League employee was pilfering game balls and selling them on the side, got found out and was trying to cover his tracks. Kraft employee not involved or doing anything wrong. No relation to deflation either.
