The road to the Super Bowl has been paved with controversy for the New England Patriots. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick insist that they didn’t cheat by deflating footballs during the AFC Championship and it looks like some of their most famous fans, including Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Steven Tyler, believe them.
If you haven’t been following the Deflategate scandal, a video surfaced earlier this week showing a lockerroom employee taking a bunch of footballs into the bathroom before the AFC Championship game. We don’t know exactly what the employee did with those balls, but the Patriots look pretty guilty.
Still, Damon, Affleck, Tyler, and John Krasinski don’t think that we should be too hard on this locker room employee. After all, aren’t we all a little bit like the locker room guy?
On Jimmy Kimmel last night, some celebrity fans of the Patriots explained what really happened to the deflated balls.
Of course, not everyone believes that it was the “locker room guy’s” fault. Joe Montana said that the balls were clearly deflated because Tom Brady likes the football a certain way.
Montana said: “I mean, it’s easy to figure out who did it. I mean, did Tom do it? No, but Tom likes the balls that way, obviously, or you wouldn’t have 11 of them that way without him complaining because as a quarterback, you know how you like the balls.”
