Dear Robert Kraft …

You recently had the audacity to demand an apology from the NFL. You said, and I quote, “If the [NFL] investigation is not able to definitively determine that our organization tampered with the air pressure in the footballs, I would expect and hope that the league would apologize to our entire team and, in particular, coach Belichick and Tom Brady for what they have had to endure this past week.” You got it backwards, dude. It is you — and not the NFL — who owes the fans, especially the New England fans, an apology. Eleven out of 12 footballs is strong probabilistic proof or prima facie evidence of foul play, especially given your team’s history of cheating and rule-bending, and to paraphrase Carl Sagan, the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. The issue here is what penalty your team should receive; not whether there should be any penalty. Lastly, just because you are rich and used to getting your way, doesn’t mean you are right. In fact, you are wrong. You and your sorry organization should be ashamed of yourselves.

Sincerely,

Prior Probability
