Yes, it may be time to wrap up Deflategate before there's rioting in the streets. But this is pretty funny ... a guy outside the Manhattan court where the Tom Brady hearing was taking place today got on camera during a live segment with ESPN's Sal Paolantonio and Andrew Brandt, brandishing his "Chris Mortensen Lies" sign.
He also yelled "Mortensen is a liar!" before being ushered away.
Why is "Mortensen a liar"? Interesting story. When the NFL leaked information about the number of deflated footballs in the Patriots' game with the Colts, they did it through Mortensen. But when it turned out that the number was, excuse me, inflated, neither Mortensen or the league subsequently corrected the info.
Furthermore, Mortensen says that the Patriots called him to apologize about criticizing his reporting. But Jonathan Kraft, son of Patriots principal owner Robert Kraft, said on 98.5 Radio in Boston that the Patriots haven't apologized to anyone.
