Default Senator wants Answers from NFL

This is hilarious. Senator Arlen Specter sends a letter to Commisioner asking why tapes were destroyed that the Patriots turned over. That is not the funny part it is the letter he sent to Commissioner Goodell.

Quote:
With the New England Patriots about to playthe Philadelphia Eagles again, as they did in the SuperBowl in January 2005, I would appreciateyour advising me what your investigation showed, if anything, on the Patriots' stealing Eagles' signals during that Superbowlgame.
If a senator is going to ask questions you would at least think he would get the question right. How in the hell does he not know who is in the damn Superbowl.

*ahem*... I'm sure he was referring to Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005 - Jacksonville, Florida... Eagles v. Patriots....

Okay.. then the actual letter was probably written a few weeks back when they met in the regular season (Pats won 31-28) - and is just now being reported by the media...

What's funny is a Congressman worried about the integrity of a sports league. I would think he'd be more concerned with the lack of integrity amongst his own peers.

I'd hope he would be more concerned with the CIA's missing footage from the American concentration camp interrogations.

Goodell should be suspended for an entire season. At week 10 the NFL should review his progress. If he keeps his nose clean he might be able to get reinstated.

I believe Sen. Arlen Specter had a brain tumor removed some time ago. Might explain how things are worded.

For the legal experts amongst us, what jurisdiction does a senator have over a professional football game any way?

What they have over the NFL and MLB is that both have Anti-trust exemptions and that has a lot of pull.

It is troubling that the Commissioner felt the need to destroy evidence on behalf of the Patriots.
