Deflategate is never over.
Patriots fans may never completely forgive ESPN for starting Deflategate, and that was made clear recently.
When one Patriots fan took a video of Rob Gronkowski drinking a beer and then spiking it, ESPN came calling. Unfortunately for them, the call wasn't answered. The worldwide leader in sports wanted to use the video to run on air but soon learned it wouldn't be easy.
