Jet Fan RI Posted February 1, 2015 Share Posted February 1, 2015 no read the pdf in the link. it is too much to cut and paste During testing, twelve brand new footballs were inflated to 12.5 PSI in a 75 degree Fahrenheit room. This was to imitate the indoor conditions where the referees would have tested the footballs 2 hours and 15 minutes before kickoff. The footballs were then moved to a 50 degree Fahrenheit environment to simulate the temperatures that were experienced throughout the game. In addition, the footballs were dampened to replicate the rainy conditions. OK. The timing here is wrong. The refs get the balls 2+ hours before gametime. But the balls aren't brought out to the field until a few minutes before gametime.. See MMQB Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
