The coverage of the "Deflategate" scandal has been endless this week after the announcement that the NFL will uphold New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four game suspension. If you've turned on ESPN or any other sports network in the last 48 hours, it has been all deflategate, all the time. You're probably tired of it, and so is Washington State's outspoken head football coach Mike Leach, who made a very interesting comparison when discussing coverage of the story.

Leach makes an interesting conflation there between deflategate, the Kardashians, and the royal family. However, no one should be surprised that the NFL has managed to dominate headlines the entire football off-season with a story that should be fairly benign.
