Falcons Owner Admits Cheating
After two weeks of full on DeflateGate hysteria, another NFL team has been caught up in a cheating scandal. The Atlanta Falcons' owner, Arthur Blank, as essentially admitted that his team illegally piped in artificial crowd noise during his team's home games.
"I think what we've done in 2013 and 2014 was wrong," Blank said. "Anything that affects the competitive balance and fairness on the field, we're opposed to, as a league, as a club and as an owner."
The 72-year-old Blank isn't Tom Brady, and the Falcons aren't the Patriots, so very little fuss will be kicked up in the wake of this scandal, but if we're going to criticize New England for their air pressure, we should certainly criticize Atlanta for trying to synthesize the home field advantage we've seen win games.
