Aaron Rodgers Likes To Tamper With Footballs, Too

We have now reached the point in the New England Patriots' Ballghazi scandal where Patriots fans can start claiming that the team didn't do anything that every other team in the NFL isn't also doing.

The defense enters the above video into evidence. Here we have CBS broadcasters Jim Nantz and Phil Simms casually recounting their pregame conversation with Aaron Rodgers before his Week 13 matchup with the Patriots. According to Simms, Rodgers admitted to them that he likes to over-inflate game balls. "I like to push the limits of how much air we can put in the football, even go over what they allow you to do," is what Simms recalls Rodgers telling them.


I think it's pretty obvious that what we need now are Congressional hearings. Cheaters are brazenly disgracing the game of football right under our noses, and we need some answers! Who has ever actively participated in the over- or under-inflating of footballs? Is Rodgers a single actor, or did he have the support of a cell? Whose money is behind the New England Patriots, anyway? At what temperature can jet fuel melt a steel beam?

Where are the video tapes? We need video tapes!
