Colts fans planning on flying 'Deflategate' blimp over stadium vs Patriots

There were so many storylines that just couldn't stay out of the newspapers during the NFL off-season this year.

From LeSean McCoy's verbal jibe's at former head coach Chip Kelly to DeMarco Murray's switch from the Dallas Cowboys to the Philadelphia Eagles, there was a lot to talk about during the off-season.

One big story

While the draft arrivals and trades were eventful, it could be argued that the biggest story of the off-season was the Deflategate scandal.


Will the Colts be back on track in time to play the Patriots? Have your say by signing up now to become a GMS writer:

If you don't know the story by now then you've clearly been living under a rock for the past nine months.

The short version states that the New England Patriots purposefully deflated balls during last year's AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Even though Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady's four game suspension was eventually overturned, it was inevitable that he would not escape the jokes from opposing teams all season.

We will see the rematch between the Colts and Patriots in Indianapolis in week 6 and some plans from the Colts fans have emerged online.


This won't be the first time that the Patriots have come under aerial attack this year but this one may just be a bit more questionable than when the New York Jets did it.

The big flaw in this plan is that the Colts play in a dome at Lucas Oil Stadium so will need the roof to be open and if it isn't, it could be one big waste of money.

Even if the roof is open, the stadium remains quite enclosed so it will still be somewhat of a challenge for Brady to see the blimp from the field.

The Colts haven't started well this season despite their high expectations but by week six, they will need to be on top form if they're going to de-rail the Patriots.
