Your guide to today's frenzy of 'Deflategate' coverage

The Ted Wells "Deflategate" report was released Wednesday, and needles(s) to say, it's pretty damning.

It doesn't look great for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

To get you caught up, here's a roundup of the frenzy of coverage this afternoon and evening (the red, bold part is the link. We don't think you're stupid... just being thorough.):
- It was "more probable than not" that the Patriots manipulated footballs during the AFC Championship game, and that Brady was "at least generally aware." 
- Text messages between two Patriots staffers are at the epicenter of the findings in the investigation. 
- Owner Robert Kraft issued a statement, and he's "disappointed." 
- Coach Bill Belichick was exonerated from any blame.
- And at least the kicking balls were OK.

- The Patriots aren't getting much sympathy from a national media standpoint. 
 -Brady's dad is kind of pissed. But not at Tom.
- And of course, Rob Gronkowski gave his take... by flexing.
So what now? Well, commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL is looking into discipline for what transpired. Stay tuned.
