I'll be very interested in hearing what this guy Walsh has to say once the squeeze gets put on him. Stay tuned, Belliprick and Kraft will get run out of the league by the time this is over.

I stand by my opinion that this is not the Feds business, but I wouldn't shed a tear if that happened.

I don't think they should have stuck thier nose in baseball/steroids either, but in this instance I'll make an exception.lol

IMO the patsies have been cheating for years and filming defensive signals is just the tip of the iceberg

This has very little to do with Specter being interested in investigating Spygate and everything to so with Specter squeezing the NFL on behalf of a corporate master. Seems as if I am not the only one who sees Comcast as a prime mover in Specter's sudden interest in Spygate.

Roger Goodell, responding to a question about the NFL's troubles in getting its network placed on broader cable tiers, declined to say whether Sen. Arlen Specter's ties to Comcast might be linked to his comments in the New York Times urging the NFL to be more transparent in its handling of the Spygate incident. "I'm not addressing that point," he said.

IMO if Sunday Ticket was opened up to Comcast the NFL would have no more problems with Specter.

The relationahip of Specter & Comcast reminds me of that between Nevada Senator Pat Geary & Michael Corleone in Godfather Part II

Everybody always has an angle.

Although I think that it is strange that the tapes were destroyed.

GO Arlen! Senator Specter is a fighter - always has been. When he smells , out comes the enema.

I agree - this is just the tip of the iceberg. Should be very interesting . . . .

Kudo's to "One for the Toe" on the pristine bullet reference.

Any Kennedy assassination buffs out there will know that Specter was pretty much the architect and biggest cheerleader of the bogus "single bullet theory".

It doesn't even matter if you buy into the conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy's death. Specter made the conclusion fit the preferred explanation, and not the other way around. His whole career was based on that sell out.

Show me a politician whose career isn't based on selling out.

I knew someone would eventually blow the whistle on this.

......snicker.............I can't wait. I'm so tired of hearing the "everybody does it" excuse.

Honestly,

I don't understand this "He is backing corporate interests" stuff.

If the/a company is a senators' area of representation, then the senator represents to company to the govt. as well... because the company is NOTHING BUT THE PEOPLE WHO OWN AND WORK THERE.

I just don't get the "No, not the corporation" mentality.

Has Paul Tagliabue taken a job anywhere else yet?
Maybe he needs to come back and show Roger how to take care of
business.
