Boy, is this some rich stuff. I don’t know if you recall, but a week ago everyone was reporting that sources at the NFL may release the PSI levels collected throughout the season during Super Bowl week, as if it was some attempt to rattle the cage of the Patriots. Now that it’s Super Bowl week and, unfortunately, the Patriots aren’t there, these numbers don’t exist. They were never collected. It wasn’t a research study to see if they completely screwed up the AFC Championship and besmirched a hero’s good name, it was just spot checks.
The NFL had no reason whatsoever to keep that information and compare it to what happened on January 18, 2015. The night which will cause them to go to court next month and defend a yearlong witch hunt. Why would any of that data be pertinent? What could finding out if balls regularly change pressure when used in different climates possibly tell you? Nothing at all. That’s why the NFL simply checked PSI levels, wrote them down, then put them in a paper shredder like all trustworthy companies do.
