Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is the latest coach to share his view on the deflate-gate scandal that is threatening to ruin the build-up to the Super Bowl. The Patriots are accused of deflating 11 of 12 balls they gave to officials during their AFC title win over the Colts. However, Zimmer believes the quality of the balls did not affect the blowout win. Across to baseball, and Washington Nationals have finalized a deal with Max Scherzer. The 30-year-old superstar pitcher will earn 210 million dollars over the course of his seven-year contract. Basketball now, and the NBA is making the All Star Weekend's Rising Stars Challenge into a battle between America and the rest of the world. And finally in the NHL, Chicago Blackhawks edged out Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on the road last night.
