Will they be punished? Probably not. Not as long as Robert Kraft and Goodell are still taking pictures (together) at their respective homes. I think he was just at Kraft’s house last week for the AFC Championship. Talk about conflict of interest. You know, as long as that happens, it won’t affect them at all. Nothing will.

Steven’s Take:
BOOM! Just like that, Super Bowl Week kicks off with a bang. The Seattle Seahawks arrived in Phoenix, AZ today in preparation ahead of Super Bowl XLIX. After the Seahawks were mum regarding “deflate-gate” all week, Sherman did not mess around. He took a shot all the way to the top by mentioning both a team owner and Commissioner Goodell.

Goodell curiously has been missing in action throughout this entire process and it is odd that the only word from the NFL has come from NFL head PR man, Greg Aiello. It appears Sherman and the Seahawks have noticed.
