Nevada’s two Senators are involving themselves in the NFL’s investigation known a ‘deflategate.’ Evidently, sports now fall within the realm of national politics.
Senator Dean Heller is calling on league officials to punish those he labeled ‘cheaters.”
“As the Senator from the only state where sports betting is legal, it is imperative the integrity of the game never be questioned,” Heller complained.
The NFL also drew the anger of Nevada’s senior Senator, Harry Reid.
“I can’t believe the National Football League, with the billions of dollars it makes, couldn’t at least determine how much air should be in a football,” Reid said.
Meanwhile, Patriot’s QB Tom Brady poked fun at the two Senator’s: “This isn’t ISIS, no one’s dying.”
However, ISIS/ISIL did behead Haruna Yukawa of Japan after that country refused to pay a $200 million ransom, for him and Kenji Goto. The terror group is now demanding the release of a would-be suicide bomber being held in Jordon for Goto’s freedom.
Now back to what really doesn’t matter…
Following the 45-7 rout of the Baltimore Colts during the AFC Championship game, someone accused New England of deflating their footballs. The Pat’s deny the charge and the NFL continues to investigate.
