Deflatgate controversy
The NFL's New England Patriots were accused of deflating the footballs for the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts to gain an advantage to win the game. Both the Patriots' head coach Bill Belichek and quarterback Tom Brady denied having known anything about the deflated footballs. An investigation has shown that the footballs were indeed deflated. The Patriots have been fined a million dollars and Brady has been suspended from starting in the first four games on the upcoming season.
