    1. The four Colts balls tested each measured w ithin the 12.5 to 13.5 psi range permitted under the Playing Rules on at least one of th e gauges used for the tests .

      Why test only four and use only one needle? Time?

    2. During the first half of the game, a question was raised by the Colts con cerning the inflat ion level of the footballs being used by the Patriots.

      This has proven to be inaccurate. The Colts informed the NFL prior to the game. http://www.businessinsider.com/new-england-patriots-deflategate-balls-indianapolis-colts-2015-5

      Further, the Colts players have denied they raised concerns. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/12213533/dqwell-jackson-indianapolis-colts-says-one-noticed-ball-was-inflated

      Who then raised the issue during the first half of the game?

      Also, Goodell has claimed he was "personally" unaware of the Colts complaint before the game.
