As a huge Colts fan, I will say that they could've played with beach balls, golf balls, volleyballs, or frisbees and gotten thumped. The Colts played like absolute S@$t from the kickoff. No sour grapes. We sucked and deserved to lose. NONETHELESS, 11 of 12 balls is damn sure no coincidence, and the fact that it wasn't a close game doesn't suddenly make this ok. It goes to the integrity of the game.Of course it doesn't, but it takes a lot more than one thing to cause a blowout.
Steve, I guess I wasn't clear enough. The Colts got embarrassed because they couldn't tackle anybody, and their WRs couldn't get open for the entire game. They sucked in every phase of the game. They deserved to lose and did lose based on these things. But that didn't make rigging the footballs to gain an advantage in bad weather acceptable just because it was a blowout. Because who picks the point differential where cheating is and isn't ok ?
My sour grapes are with my team for playing so lousy and embarrasing the city. And if the Colts got caught doing something this dumb, I'd be furious at them. It's dumb for any team to do, especially one that doesn't need an advantage anyway.
