The internet was invented for things like #Deflategate. Since reports surfaced Sunday about the Patriots deliberately deflating several footballs used in their 45-7 AFC Championship victory over the Colts, Twitter has been buzzing with potential punishment suggestions. We rounded up a few of the most creative ideas below.
(Also, according to CBS Philly, you can now make prop bets on potential punishments for Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Let the schadenfreude continue.)
The punishment for the Patriots should be to play the Super Bowl with super inflated balls, with the same bounciness as a racquetball.— GTOG Finesse (@GTOGFinesse) January 21, 2015
I think the Pats punishment should be decided exclusively by the people in the comments section of ESPN's website— wells fargo jokes (@rasputinmethod) January 21, 2015
The Patriots' punishment should be to watch the entire Pro Bowl.— Jim Rome (@jimrome) January 21, 2015
To make this fair, the NFL should have Eli follow Brady around for a full week before the SB.— victoria (@CountOnVic) January 21, 2015
best punishment for belichick?— neil mccauley (@the_blueprint) January 21, 2015
