OK, but why would a contestant in the Miss America contest be asked about Tom Brady and his role in Deflategate? And why would the judges inexplicably decide to give the crown to Miss Georgia, Betty Cantrell, after giving this rambling answer:

Did he cheat? Um, that’s a really good question! I’m not sure. I think I’d have to be there to see the ball, and feel it to make sure it was deflated or not deflated. But if there was question there, then yes, I think he cheated. If there were any question to be had, I think that he definitely cheated, and he should’ve been suspended for that. That’s not fair.

Is Roger Goodell running the Miss America pageant now?

I understand that the runner-up was not as decisive in her indictment of Bill Belichick for Spygate.
