SUMMARY: During the December 4, 2016 regular season game between the New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers, Giants cornerback Eli Apple recovered two Steelers' turnovers and noticed that the Steelers seemed to be playing with deflated footballs. Upon testing by the Giants' on their sideline (an act which is expressly against the rules ), both footballs were found to be below the magical and sacrosanct lower limit of PSI. According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk , one ball measured PSI and the other PSI. Unlike their posturing two years ago, the league quickly came out with this statement which passively admitted that cold temperatures will lower the air pressure in footballs: "The officiating game ball procedures were followed and there were no chain of command issues. All footballs were in compliance and no formal complaint was filed by the Giants with our office."
All of the comments on this article make very valid points. However, the commentators are vastly overestimating the willingness of the average White American to “kick the habit” of professional sports. There will be some outrage at the disrespectful behavior by these overpaid savages, but in a year or two this will be acceptable as “expression of free speech” and attendance will rebound. At this point in time, even a black athlete killing a White athlete on live TV wouldn’t change the situation after the initial furor died down with the assistance of the mainstream media. It is utterly disgusting, but true.
