Default How will DeflateGate affect the Super Bowl

Ok let's talk Super Bowl. It's only one week away.

What a nightmare this DeflateGate is for the NFL. And to add insult to injury Aaron Hernandez trial looks to be starting on Tues. What timing! fe

How is this going to affect Super Bowl day.

What changes will be made for game day? Are the footballs going to be guarded? Will the players still be allowed to scuff up their own balls this week? Should they be allowed too?

What about reffing? Are we going to see more calls against the Pats now? You have to know that a Patriots Super Bowl now would be an absolute PR NIGHTMARE! How far would the league go to ensure a SeaHaggs wiin now?

How about gambling? I'm not a big gambler so I haven't watched what's going on in Vegas? Will there be a drastic shift in Vegas with betters now assuming that the Hawks will now win because of what's going on.

Will there be any last min. advertising surprises on Super Sunday. Any last min. TV commercial changes to take advantage of DeflateGate or is it a third rail topic or simply not enough time.

What deflated ball celebration will we see from the Hawks?

Will viewership go down or up do to this. I know that a lot of people here say they won't watch it now, but I find it hard to believe that most will care about any of this once kick-off. It's practically an American Holiday.

The Pats are going to set a record for drops because they aren't used to playing with properly inflated balls (although I would bet that they are practicing with over inflated balls for 2 weeks).

Was wondering if there would be any commercials about it myself. Probably too late.

I used to think that too, but it's a nice shorthand for scandal.


"The Patriots Under Inflated Football Scandal" Or "Deflategate"

Note to advertisers. I WILL PROBABLY BUY ANY PRODUCT THAT REFERENCES DEFLATEGATE. Especially if it adds in some Spygate/other Pats cheating.

I'm eagerly awaiting a scandal surrounding an actual gate, so we can call it "Gategate".

Don't care, not gonna watch.

However, not to be a douchbag, but I hope the Seahawks crush. I am kinda of a fan of Wilson and Sherman these days, after the Broncos are done of course.

Looking forward to 3 hours of commercials, hope the game doesn't interfere too much with them.

If Dodge, Ford, etc come out with a commercial and can somehow make a joke about tire inflation or something of the like, I will trade in my Chevy immediately and purchase one of their trucks.

This is sort of interesting. The average star rating of superbowl starters out of high school - seattle's guys are 2.4 new england 2.3

NE left tackle Nate Solder was a 3 for Colorado. He was a tight end then.

I'm sure the announcers won't mention it more than a couple ... dozen times ... each.
