Football: About those deflated balls

So if you’ve watched any TV news program lately there’s the ‘scandal’ that the New England Patriots who beat the Colts to get the nod for the Super Bowl was using underinflated footballs.

Now I’m not a football fan per se. But logic is the game I like – so two things came out of this:

1) Didn’t both teams use the SAME ball? So any advantage gained by using an under inflated ball would accrue to both teams, not just the Pats.

2) Who bitched? I think the Colts probably bitched. Because all indications are officials checked the balls before the game and they passed with flying colors. So this says to me that they’re trying to tarnish the reputation of the Patriots. For what reason I’m unsure but something smells rotten.
