And so it continues.
Less than a day after Bill Belichick offered his explanation of the team’s scientific investigation and study of Deflategate, a scientific expert has come forward and accused the Patriots coach of being flat out ignorant.
Bill Nye, a mechanical engineer who worked at Boeing before becoming TV’s ‘Bill Nye The Science Guy,’ was a guest on Sunday’s “Good Morning America,” claiming Belichick’s explanation “doesn’t make any sense.”
LEDYARD, Conn. ‘ The Red Sox tried something new this offseason, and the Red Sox players didn’t seem to mind it at all.
Hundreds of fans poured into Foxwoods Resort and Casino for the Sox’ first-ever Winter Weekend to participate in a variety of activities and events. One of the byproducts of the festivities was the opportunity for the majority of the Red Sox roster to gather together prior to heading to Fort Myers for the first official reporting date, Feb. 20.
Here are some of the takeaways from the player availability:

FOXBORO — This was a Bill Belichick no one had ever seen before.
The coach with over 40 years of coaching experience rarely ever gets as fired up and passionate about something as he did Saturday afternoon in an impromptu press conference to put an end to the Deflategate story this week — at least for the time being.
It was in that 25 or so minute press conference that he went off course a bit and discussed this year’s team and how hard they work when referencing the footballs the team uses in practice, as they are often messed with (ie. pouring water on them) to prepare the team for the toughest of playing conditions.
“Anyone who has seen us practice knows that we make it harder, not easier, to handle the football,” Belichick said. “Our players train in conditions that a lot of people would recommend that we not drive in....
FOXBORO — Bill Belichick spoke Saturday afternoon for over 23 minutes on the Deflategate situation, maintaining the team didn’t do anything wrong and followed “every rule to the letter” after conducting an internal investigation.
Here is his partial opening statement:
“I want to take this opportunity to share this information. I’ve spent a significant amount of time this past week learning what I could learn, more than I could ever imagine to tell you the truth about ladders, air gauges, stitching, pressure, game day ball preparation, rub downs, so forth.
“I’m trying to be as helpful as I can here with everything I have learned. Having coached for 40 years in the National Football League, played for several years, growing up in a football family,...
All players were present for the session, which was held in sweats and shells.
It’s worth mentioning rookie center Bryan Stork appeared to be moving well and had a brace and sleeve on his injured knee. He was listed as questionable for the game on the injury report, which came out on Friday night. It was the third straight day he practiced.
The team will hold one more practice (Sunday) before departing for Arizona on Monday.
