Several members of the Seattle Seahawks say the controversy surrounding the New England Patriots has no effect on their upcoming Super Bowl matchup.
The NFL is currently investigating the Patriots after reportedly finding all 12 of the game balls provided for the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts were under-inflated.
"If it's against the rules, it's against the rules. It's not going to have any effect on this game. You know nobody is going to get suspended, nothing is going to happen. They're going to play this game,” Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said during a press conference.
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson was mostly measured when asked about the controversy, but joked, saying as long as the ball has laces, he will be fine.
"I don't know anything about that, I honestly don't, so there's not much I can really comment on that," Wilson said. "You know, obviously they're a great team, so I don't think that has an issue probably, but I have no idea."
