In the latest turn of events in the ongoing DeflateGate saga, the New England Patriots have requested that the NFL reinstate the two employees who were at the center of the ball deflation scandal, per the Associated Press.

The two alleged ball deflators, equipment assistant John Jastremski and officials locker room attendant Jim McNally, were suspended by the Patriots following the investigation into whether Tom Brady was involved in the purported scheme to use improperly inflated footballs during the AFC title game last season.
Outside of punters or kickers there are really only two positions where we’ll ever see a Rugby League player make an impact: PR/KR and Running Back. That’s it. We’ll never see a prop become a linebacker, or a winger play wide receiver. Body types are too different, and the speed of the NFL would blind players with Jarryd Hayne’s size. The former Parramatta Eels’ fullback was an anomaly.
A player who never looked like he belonged in the NRL. A man who made things look too easy. Hayne’s size wasn’t unheard of in league, but that frame being able to produce his speed was. There were times he looked like he was playing a different sport than everyone else on the field — it turns out he was.
The kicker to all this is an ethereal concept that can’t be quantified in seconds or bench press reps, it’s vision — and something Hayne has in spades. His style in league was free-form improved jazz as he danced around defenders and showed patience in waiting for a hole to open. He was a master of creating something out of nothing, and then used his speed to explode through gaps.
