NFL Football: Is Deflate-Gate A National Disaster?

I grew up playing sports, and I like sports generally. I once wrote that the main difference between ballet and football was the fact that the outcomes for football games or matches were stochastic and described by probabilities, whereas the outcomes for ballet performances were not.

Imagine placing a wager on whether the Nutcracker or the Mouse King would win their battle!

The business of intentionally and illegally under-inflation of balls for a New England Patriots play-off game is not a national disaster.....

However, the mentality and behavior that has led to this corruption of sports is!

Imagine the Mouse King dropping his sword, and then pulling out a semi-automatic gun or an anti-tank rocket launcher!
