“Deflate gate” has us questioning if the Patriots can make it to the Super Bowl without cheating? They’re good enough, but they never let that get in the way of breaking a few rules to gain an advantage. “Spy gate” is 7 years in the past, another scandal that led to the Patriots being known for a legacy of cheating. Players of teams that lost the big game to them will always question the legality of their game plan and the air that it holds.
On the other side of the field we have the running back that’s fined for everything. Lynch makes clear what’s worth paying a fine for. He would rather show up and make a complete ass out of himself, repeating one word or phrase in response to all questions rather than take a fine for not speaking to media. Yet he’ll take a fine every time, just to grab his junk on the field. With retirement right around the corner, maybe he’s being careful how he spends his money.
Why does the media always chase after Lynch, when there is a Seahawks corner who is never at a loss for words? Sherman wants us all to know that Brady is not the clean-cut good guy every one sees. Sherman says he trash talked Brady after their last meeting in 2012, because Brady started it. Brady claimed he had no idea Sherman was talking trash, but thought he was congratulating him on a good game. He might need to step it up a notch, if he expects Brady to notice him this Sunday.
With constant media buzz that rarely varies, you may find it hard to believe Super Bowl XLIX has been declared a “No Drone Zone.” This theme is spelled out on the field and up in the lights. We know who the message is really for. Bill Belichick must know it’s cheating to film the other team with a drone, and being in a “no drone zone” he'd better have another trick up his sleeve.
