    Issue is dealt with and we have never ever heard the words deflate-gate...

    Hard to believe this conversation never happened...
    The NFL has lost cases because they failed to do this exact thing. They lost BountyGate because of this and they lost the case where they knew about spiked supplements and never told the players and then tried to suspend players who took the supplements.

    That's bad business. Especially when the NFL has given the QBs carte blanche over the footballs for such a long time.

    So Goodell should have called them and said "We've heard you've been cheating, so don't cheat this game, cause the refs will be watching"

    Yea that's a good way to handle it.

    Basically yes...

    Instead of saying "we've heard you have been cheating", I would say
    "you've been accused of cheating so we will be watching things closely".
