The New York Daily News can’t stop, won’t stop with the ball jokes.
The tabloid went after Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots on Tuesday, dedicating its cover to the “DeflateGate” controversy that has been all that anyone can talk about in the days following the Pats’ 45-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. But the Daily News isn’t done calling the Pats a bunch of cheaters yet.
ESPN reported late Tuesday night that 11 of the 12 game balls the Patriots used in their rout of the Colts were under-inflated by 2 pounds of square inch each, giving the Daily News yet another excuse to throw a picture of Bill Belichick front and center.
