You would think that with Superbowl 49 coming up soon, that all of the talk in the football world would be on the upcoming game, but instead we have Inflategate- the news story about a team that might have lowered the air pressure of the footballs used in the AFC Championship game. While this is a topic of discussion that might have an impact on the National Football League in the future, it doesn’t have much to do with the biggest event in the football year. Let’s look at why Inflategate has taken center stage.
Reasons Why People Care More about Inflategate and the Superbowl
- If you aren’t from New England, you probably don’t have an investment in New England winning yet another Superbowl.
- Inflategate could change how football works in the future.
- The Superbowl will probably be over after the first quarter.
Questions I have about Inflategate:
- If they change the PSI to help the players on one team, won’t the other team have the exact same advantage?
- Who decided what PSI to use?
- How long ago was it?
- Is it time for a change anyway?
- Does anyone really care?
I don’t know if I’ll actually watch the Superbowl this year, but at this point, I can’t avoid the controversy. I might as well sit back and enjoy it as much as I can.
