Deflate Gate is Sending the Wrong Message to Kids - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 1/22/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

Wish I could say that I am shocked by deflategate and that the Patriots would pull a stunt like this, but I’m not surprised at all. Remember, the video tape controversy of 2007? Eleven of 12 footballs were deflated according to reports and other teams have raised concerns about New England, but as you see, the NFL hasn’t done anything to stop it. This entire controversy is sending the wrong message to kids. It’s telling them that you shouldn’t practice good sportsmanship, and instead cheat until you are caught, and then don’t worry because you won’t really be held responsible and you’ll end up playing in the championship. Bad message and example from the New England Patriots and the NFL. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
