INDIANAPOLIS — The NFL pretended it took football inflation extremely seriously when it launched its DeflateGate investigation.
It turns out that’s far from the truth as more details about the NFL’s process have come pouring out in recent days. NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino even admitted before the Super Bowl that officials don’t log the footballs’ PSI before games.
That might change next season. St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher anticipates the NFL Competition Committee, in which he’s a key member, will look into the procedures surrounding football inflation before games.
“Every year, we have Wilson come in, and we discuss balls and gauges and discuss that,” Fisher said Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine. “But I would submit that we probably wouldn’t have any discussions until everything has been resolved at the league office.”
It’s unclear when the Wells investigation into DeflateGate will conclude and be released to the public. The NFL Spring Meeting takes place in late March.
