Just when you thought that the DeflateGate saga might be dying down and thankfully coming to an end, it jumps back into the spotlight.

Tom Brady has been having his appeal hearing over the four game suspension handed down by the National Football League, and yet again that has kicked up conversation over one of the worst controversies ever.

This time it is Emmanuel Sanders speaking out on the Patriots' transgressions, with the Denver Broncos wide receiver venting his frustrations.

Angry Sanders

According to a report from 9News, Sanders was speaking at the  Ed McCaffrey Annual Football Camp in Colorado where he said that he thought the Patriots should not be Super Bowl Champions because they cheated.

“I’m kind of mad,” Sanders said. “I don’t think that they should be the Super Bowl champion this year. . . . You aren’t supposed to cheat."

Sanders went on to say that it is unfair to other players who work hard and grind every day of the year, that they can keep everything above board but are beaten by a team who were found to be cheating.

"Cheating is not good, especially when you’ve got guys who are working their butts off for 365 days out of the year and one person cheats –- whether it helps them win the Super Bowl or not, they still cheated and shouldn’t be a champion," the receiver added.

More Probable Than Not

An NFL-ordered investigation determined Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was "more probable than not" aware of the illicit deflating practices by two New England employees, who were fired by the Patriots, in the AFC Championship game against the Colts.

The Patriots beat the Colts and went on to face the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl, winning thanks to an incredible interception from young corner Malcolm Butler.
