The ideal gas law applies to every football (thus, Defategate was a lie, plus they won the AFC Championship and the Super Bowl after the accusations), the Tuck Rule was the correctly applied rule at the time, and they didn't win any Super Bowls from when the rules about videotaping your opponent changed to when they were punished for "Spygate."
I don't have definitive proof that either Seattle or Atlanta weren't paid off, though. Philly didn't get that memo, it seems.
