With just over a minute remaining in Monday night’s frigid Eagles-Raiders game, ESPN cut to a montage of photos of Oakland long snapper Jon Condo and the charitable work he’s done with veterans during his career. The telecast then cut to a live shot of Condo on the Raiders sideline aside punter Marquette King, awaiting for a potential game-winning field goal try. Condo could be seen warming up a football next to a heater while the two looked around suspiciously.

With the fallout over the regulation of the back from ‘deflate-gate’, fans, many of which were Patriots fans, understandly, called on the league to investigate the matter.
According to ProFootbalkTalk, the Raiders may be in the clear on any punishment from the league if the balls were solely being used for warming up and not for live action.
