#DeflateGateMay Super Bowl Sunday: Heaping Helpings of Hypocrisy

Deflategate report suggests Patriots personnel ‘likely’ deflated footballs-Boston Globe
The Sociopathic Business Model™ correctly asserted that the NFL was aware of the Patriots involvement of deflating balls during the AFC Championship; and, by allowing the Patriots to participate in and win the Super Bowl the NFL has encouraged, replicated and rewarded unethical behavior. This is enough evidence for the NFL to force accountability from the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell by immediately terminating him and forcing accountability from the Patriots by revoking their Super Bowl Championship.
Investigator Ted Wells says in his report for the NFL on Deflategate that “it is more probable than not” that Patriots personnel deliberately deflated the team’s footballs in the AFC Championship game and that quarterback Tom Brady was aware of it.
Wells released his report on Wednesday. Wells said two Patriots personnel – officials locker room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski – likely “participated in a deliberate effort to release air from Patriots game balls.”
Corruption starts at the top and Jim McNally and John Jastremski likely did not act on their own and were threatened and intimidated into carrying out a plan that started much higher up on the pay grade than theirs. They didn’t stand to benefit millions or billions like Goodell and Patriots coach Bill Belicheck, player Tom Brady and owner Robert Craft all of whom should be banned for life from the NFL.

The NFL-All accomplices eventually become victims
The New England Patriot’s win over the Seattle Seahawks at Super Bowl XLIX is a hollow victory and doesn’t vindicate the Patriot’s from wrong-doing regarding #DeflateGate it only reinforces that the NFL pathologically encourages, replicates and rewards unethical & or illegal behavior.
Inconsistent & Contradictory Language to Actions-As if enough hasn’t been written about #DeflateGate but for anyone who throws a football for a living (ahem-New England Patriot’s Quarterback Tom Brady) to not notice it was easier to grip the ball during Indianapolis Colts game is not believable in that it became noticeable to the Colts (who also throw & catch balls for a living) following an interception during the game. Further inconsistency revealed only the New England Patriot’s balls were underinflated (11 of the team’s 12).
Right now Tom Brady’s denial of knowledge the balls were underinflated makes him an accomplice to the NFL. (Not to mention a really bad actor-he could barely keep from smurking during the press conference). And making him MVP (during an active NFL investigation-ha!) demonstrates an accomplice is rewarded for possible unethical behavior. Why wouldn’t the NFL hold off on naming an MVP until the investigation was complete? Oh wait we know the answer to that one, don’t we?
The only thing the NFL is consistent about is their pathological unethical & or illegal behavior that’s encouraged, replicated and rewarded. Anytime an organization does their own “investigation” (#BridgeGate) it’s designed as a manipulation of the facts to place blame on the victims, to not take accountability and demonstrates the refusal to be challenged by not allowing an ethical investigation not controlled by the organization in question to take place. The NFL’s investigation (if ever mentioned again) will of course find no wrong-doing which is not the same as innocent.
Expecting Tom Brady or the New England Patriots to take accountability for unethical & or possible illegal behavior is not likely considering the NFL does not take accountability for their unethical & illegal behavior. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had the deflated balls to comment during a press conference that the NFL had a “tough year,” which again is inconsistent & contradictory. Goodell did not recognize the unethical & or illegal actions of the NFL created victims Janay Palmer Rice and that the “tough year,” on this page is known as forced accountability. (Fortunately the NFL PR team didn’t allow him to use the word “haters”).
Goodell’s pity me press conference didn’t go over well with the media or fans and resulted in his not granting NBC an interview prior to the Super Bowl. And again for more inconsistent & contradictory language to action Goodell has pubically stated that Seattle Seahawk’s Marshawn Lynch has an obligation to speak to the fans and media and threatened to impose a fine. Marshawn Lynch was an NFL accomplice and now he’s becoming a victim under the NFL’s inconsistent & contradictory management style of Roger Goodell.
In the absence of Goodell NBC trotted out President Obama for an interview who when asked about #DeflateGate mentioned a little known fact that each team is responsible for bringing their own balls to the game which is inconsistent & contradictory:
“Here’s what I know. The Patriots were going to beat the Colts regardless of what the footballs looked like. The one thing I did not realize and I’ll bet most fans didn’t is that each team prepares its own footballs and brings ‘em to the game. I don’t think there’s any other sport like that, so I’m assuming one of the things the NFL’s going to be doing, just to avoid any of these controversies, is figuring out how the officials are in charge of the footballs from start to finish.”
What’s next? Each team gets to select a few superfans to ref the games? Now if only we could get the President to use that same logic, fact based evidence and problem solving ability for the well-being of the Country-we might get somewhere.
