What happened? Cold weather can deflate a ball – did you know that? The Colts could have tampered with their balls is anybody investigating that? The refs approved the footballs before the game, then at halftime removed the deflated balls for inflated balls and the Patriots DID BETTER in the second half.
The point is, I don’t think this is as big a deal as it’s being made out to be so let’s see the best tweets of people having not just a discussion about it but a little fun too.
Chad Brown ‘no head coach checks balls’
No NFL head coach is checking footballs. Ever. It's between the QB and the equipment guys. #DeflateGate

Patriots corner Brandon Browner ‘Blount rushed for 3 TD’s’
For my 2cents Blount scored 3 rushing touchdowns. He could've carried a beach ball. Also doesn't hurt we only gave up 7 points #inflatethis

This tweeter believes it was CBS Analyst Phil Simms sucking the air out of balls:
