BOSTON (CBS) – Bob Kravitz of WTHR in Indianapolis, the man who broke the DeflateGate story following the AFC Championship game, joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich Wednesday morning.

And with the report that 11 of the 12 footballs used by the Patriots Sunday night were under-inflated, Kravitz believes New England should come down hard on the head coach.

Below is a series of tweets Kravitz fired off last night:

Kravitz didn’t back down Wednesday morning on T&R.

“We’re talking about integrity of the game issues, we’re talking about a level playing field and we’re talking about a recidivist here. We’re talking about somebody who’s done this twice,” Kravitz said about Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.

“Whatever you think about Spygate, the NFL thought it was serious enough to take away a draft choice and fine Belichick $500,000 and the team $250,000. If I was an owner that’s not the way I would want to be represented, unless of course winning means everything at all costs and you’re a Machiavellian.”

Kravitz adds that he’d feel the same way if the script was flipped and Chuck Pagano was accused of wrongdoing, and while he’s not holding his breath for a Belichick firing, he believes a Super Bowl suspension is just.

“At the very least I believe [NFL commissioner] Roger Goodell should suspend [Belichick] for the Super Bowl game. I think this is a very serious accusation, if in fact Bill called the code red. I have a very hard time believing that a ball boy or ball girl would unilaterally deflate footballs before the biggest game of the season. It seems to me it came from the top of the food chain. I think they need to take serious action, whether it be [Patriots owner] Bob Kraft or Roger Goodell.”
