Specter's interest in Spygate

An interesting tidbit for those of us wondering why Senator Arlen Specter doesn't have anything better to do than go after the New England Patriots. Specter apparently has "close ties" to Philly-based Comcast, who's in the middle of a dispute with the NFL over the terms of its broadcasting of the NFL Network. Of course having to deal with an independent investigation would make life more difficult for the NFL. Weird to think of a strategist like Bill Belichick, of all people, being a pawn in a fight between the NFL and Comcast, but that's what the connection suggests.

Another good summary of the Comcast/Specter/NFL story.


  1. Does this have anything to do with SPETRE (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion)?

  2. specter should shut the fuck up, and i think im saying that unbiasedly. this isnt worth his time. and, i think the increased probing of all things in this modern information age has led only to more unsavory events being uncovered, not more unsavory events happening. why, when people think of the 'good old days,' do they just think of the good? guys cheated like shit back then too i bet. who feels me here?
