9 hours 15 min ago

His bulging, exposed arms carried an energy-shot-size bottle of something called deer antler velvet. Once in New Orleans, he held an informal news conference to discuss his relationship with Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and exactly what deer antlers had to do with the NFL star’s torn triceps. Ross became an unlikely star of the moment two days before the Baltimore Ravens played the San Francisco 49ers two years ago in the Super Bowl, a spectacle that has become so extravagant that it tests our society’s ability to separate news from sideshow.Read full article >>

How the NFL, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and other QBs created DeflateGate

Sat, 01/24/2015 - 11:31am
The DeflateGate controversy ripped back the curtain on a little rule change that has come roaring back from 2006.It didn’t make enormous headlines when Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and the league’s other marquee quarterbacks lobbied hard for a rule-book tweak that would allow each offense to supply its own footballs. Brady, Manning and the rest of the NFL’s QBs were at the top of their game, TV ratings were skyrocketing, offensive records were falling — why not change a rule if that’s what the marquee stars wanted, even if they’d still be marquee stars without a change? Women were flocking to the game, fantasy leagues were thriving and the league was only too happy to enable its modern golden age of quarterbacks with that change, along with others limiting defenses that have helped keep QBs at the top of their game over the last nine seasons.Read full article >>

How to think about DeflateGate, a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma

Fri, 01/23/2015 - 5:05pm

Is Tom Brady really innocent? His social media presence made him seem so squeaky clean! Or what about Bill Belichick? How could he possibly have no idea how 11 of the team’s 12 game-day footballs came to be under-inflated by two pounds of air per square inch? This is a story about air in footballs, yet it is as seemingly mysterious as “Serial,” the viral podcast that meticulously dissected a first-degree murder case. Although the subjects are vastly different, the main questions that run through your mind are the same: What exactly is going on here and who is responsible?Read full article >>
