Patriots Swing First, Launch Anti-Wells Report Website
In an incredible move, the Patriots are fighting back against the Wells Report with a website aimed at debunking the report's conclusions. Here's the opening line:
The conclusions of the Wells Report are, at best, incomplete, incorrect and lack context. The Report dismisses the scientific explanation for the natural loss of psi of the Patriots footballs by inexplicably rejecting the Referee’s recollection of what gauge he used in his pregame inspection. Texts acknowledged to be attempts at humor and exaggeration are nevertheless interpreted as a plot to improperly deflate footballs, even though none of them refer to any such plot. There is no evidence that Tom Brady preferred footballs that were lower than 12.5 psi and no evidence anyone even thought that he did. All the extensive evidence which contradicts how the texts are interpreted by the investigators is simply dismissed as “not plausible.” Inconsistencies in logic and evidence are ignored.
The website even disputes the report's scientific conclusions with a rebuttal from Nobel Laureate Roderick MacKinnon.
This is fascinating and a must read! The Patriots will not back down. A prime example of how this organization operates. They will not be intimidated; they will not be wrongly accused.
Your move NFL.
