    Well...sadly I actually missed it by a day. But yeah, by now everyone but people who hate the Patriots and most of the leadership of the NFL has admitted that absolutely no tampering happened.

    This video of an MIT Professor (who is an Eagles fan) proves that absolutely nothing happened (states his reputation as a scientist and professor on it):


    Anyone have fond memories of this whole "scandal" and stuff?

    Couldn't believe it was a year at first, but I guess all the big stuff didn't end until just before the beginning of this season so yeah.

    My post is totally pointless.

    That's not this thread. You're looking for a thread to come out in the early fall of 2017 as the 10 year anniversary.

    Huh? I quite clearly stated the rules at the beginning about this thread being the 1 year anniversary for deflategate, and asked if anyone had anything else to say about it.

    You were the one who changed the topic and then got upset about not being on topic.

    you said "and stuff"

    who gets to decide what "and stuff" means? when I hear deflategate, I think spygate.

    anyway, you guys are still better than philadelphia fans :hug:

    the only thing that still annoys me is that people (well, the media) still attach "-gate" to controversies like this

    it almost makes me wish Nixon got away with it

    Is this place even going to exist by then?
    We'd probably be better off.

    I just can't believe we're going to have to relive it in March/April when it goes to a Second Circuit Court of Appeals. And by the same token, how on Earth Roger Goodell still has his job after this bullshit fiasco.... If I cost my company close to $10 million dollars, and absolutely nothing positive, I'd be fired...

    Honestly, it drives me nuts that anyone still thinks there was any tampering going on. Any other team, and we stopped talking about this January 21st, 2015. Still waiting for Goodell's apology to the Patriots and handing back the draft picks he unrightfully stole.

    Do not curse us with such nonsensical ideas! If @Apollo has anything to do with it, we'll be like recovering alcoholics in an AA meeting.

    Wikipedia claims people call it "Ballghazi" which I think is just fabulous.

    I have never once referred to it, nor heard it referred to as... Ballghazi...

    Aside.... who thinks the NFL is going to release all the PSI information they've been taking this year the week leading up to the Super Bowl, like is currently being reported (as they "might")!?

    I think it should be called Tom Brady and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Commissioner.

    Didn't he, though? Didn't he?

    Wait, no, he didn't! Well, now I don't know what to believe anymore...

    Nixon wasn't a crook. When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal.

    yeah, you're right, for instance, [president you didn't like] did all sorts of shady stuff but got away with it, I never thought [president you did like] was like that though
