Let’s assume that the New England Patriots inflated their footballs to the absolute minimum pressure allowed in an interior room where the temperature was 70 to 75 degrees farenheit. Then the game was played at 49 to 51 degrees. The pressure naturally will drop inside the footballs purely due to the difference in temperature.
I am amazed that not one of our illustrious sportswriters and/or commentators all over the country had the minimum knowledge of basic science needed to make this obvious connection. Maybe I should not be amazed.
I fear they were too busy trying to make news and find scandal. If it turns out the Patriots are proved to be in the wrong, I will gladly admit my mistake.
