On a night that his Patriots trounced the Colts 45-7 en route to the Super Bowl, we learn that Belichick and company may have been cheating yet again. Take a look at this Tweet from Bob Kravitz, a reporter from Indianapolis:
Breaking: A league source tells me the NFL is investigating the possibility the Patriots deflated footballs Sunday night. More to come.

Kravitz went on to state that if the NFL finds that the Patriots did, in fact, deflate footballs, they could lose draft picks.
Obviously this is not the reason for the loss. The Patriots outplayed the Colts in all aspects of the game. They whipped them. But, just the fact that Belichick may have cheated in some way is deplorable. He has a terrific football team, whether we want to admit it or not. His team is good, they don’t have to cheat. Yet they continue to cheat, with fairly little push back from the NFL.
This is why everyone hates the Patriots. This is the team that called out the Jets for tampering? Talk about hypocrisy…
