FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DeflateGate.com has launched, offering sports fans a social network that far transcends the features available in traditional online sports forums. Covering numerous professional and college sports, DeflateGate.com, which is free to join, enables members to create posts and leave comments, invite friends to join site, create personal avatars, build fan pages and more.
"If you're a sports fan, you want to be immersed in sports talk and the total sports environment when you're online. Cat videos are nice, but you know what, you don't care, right?" said Isang Inokon, founder of DeflateGate.com. "That's the idea for DeflateGate.com. It's sports – your favorite sports only – all the time, battling it out with your buddies or strangers who love and hate your sports teams."
Deflategate is for people who love sports. With its name inspired by the notorious "Deflategate" scandal that was brought to life in last year's playoffs, DeflateGate.com's mission is to go beyond the basics of sports forums.
