A 10-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky is winning over football fans across the nation after winning his school’s science fair by investigating whether or not five-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady is a cheater. Ace Davis decided to utilize the scientific method to explore whether or not “under-inflated footballs provide a competitive advantage in a game.”
Ace went all-out with his project, as he featured a plethora of charts and graphs that showed his research into the controversial Deflategate. The Millcreek Elementary student concluded that Tom Brady had, in fact, cheated, writing that, “The Patriots were found guilty of doctoring football [sic], thus losing $1,000,000 and future draft picks. Tom Brady is indeed a cheater.”
Despite being perhaps the greatest quarterback to ever play, Brady and the entire Patriots organization have become divisive figures for fans due to their infuriating combination of winning all the time and seeming to bend the rules to get any sort of competitive advantage. In 2007, it was discovered that the team had someone filming from an unauthorized location during their matchup against the New York Jets.
But their most famous instance of alleged cheating is certainly Deflategate, as the team was accused of deflating footballs during the first half of their victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship. Brady was suspended for four games by the NFL and the Patriots were fined a million dollars and required to forfeit multiple draft picks, including a first-round pick in the 2016 draft.
Hater level: 100.***UPDATE: He won the science fair and is moving on to district. ????#ellen #ellendegeneres #theellenshow #viral #ellenshow #tonightshow #kimmel #jimmykimmel #thankful #jimmykimmellive
When asked about his motivation, the science prodigy admitted that he was hoping to use science to prove that the Patriots quarterback had broken the rules.
“I hate Tom Brady,” Ace told nfldraftdiamonds.com. “He’s been accused of cheating before. I want him to be caught.”
It’s safe to say that pretty much everyone outside of New England shares Ace’s anti-Patriot sentiment and will be rooting for him to win his district science fair as well.
