The whole piece is great, but I especially like this:
Belichick on Saturday gave what felt like a college power lecture on preparation of footballs and what he thinks happened, going on in pretty surprising detail about their amateur scientist experiments. Then, everyone just said he was a liar. That’s where we are with this. I’ve covered sports for a long time and don’t recall a mass overreaction to a story quite like this.
The whole story has been ridiculous from the start, but at least now people are coming to that realization.
