Jon Stewart takes on NFL over Deflategate, Marshawn Lynch
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart looked at the NFL controversies that have marked the run up to Super Bowl XLIX on Thursday's episode, taking on the Patriots' explanations for Deflategate, and the league's handling of Marshawn Lynch.
Stewart mocks coach Bill Belichick's faulty science from his first press conference on the under-inflated footballs before being joined by the shows resident sports expert, John Hodgman, who shows his love for Tom Brady with his football mallet.
The host then turns his ire towards the NFL's threats to fine Marshawn Lynch, echoing Richard Sherman's call for the commissioner to be more accountable to the media if he is going to fine his player upwards of $500,000 for not doing the same.
