#Deflategate may be just another NFL ploy to co-opt our attention in the two week layoff before the Super Bowl, but it just so happens to be pretty successful. After all, the hype machine that accompanies the week before the big game is in full swing, and we’re still talking about it. Given the general Patriots hate and the scientific explanations that have emerged, it’s no surprise that a Change.org petition emerged that takes aim at keeping Tom Brady and co. out of the Super Bowl. Still, you might not have expected it to come from Baltimore.
As WBAL first reported, the author of the petition is Scott Latshaw, a financial advisor with Latshaw Wealth Management. The petition calls for NFL officials to replay the AFC Championship. That helps Latshaw’s Ravens because it would put the Ravens in the game against the Colts instead of the Pats.
The petition is already at 50,000 signatures, and Latshaw told WBAL that CBS is setting up a debate between a Boston sports writer and him.
“We know something’s wrong. We know some cheating’s going on and we need the facts,” Latshaw told WBAL.
