Here is the basic problem. Not enough people complained when Congress decided to stick it's nose in the business of major league sports with its steroid hearings, and its threats against the leagues to add government regulation. I can't find a post were I specifically condemned the hearings though I've been against them from the start, and I did ask this question. Now members of Congress want to do more with major league sports. Sen. Arlin Specter wants to bring the situation between the Eagles and T.O. in front of the anti-trust committee:
I guess the good Senator doesn't care that T.O. is an arrogant prick who deserved exactly what he got. Apparently he's forgotten that T.O. is under contract and that its the Eagles right not to release him under that extremely generous contract. I guess it doesn't matter that the majority of football watching Americans agree with what happened. Does Specter even care that the Eagles and T.O. went in front of a neutral arbitrator who decided completely with the Eagles? Apparently none of that is enough. Somehow Specter has decided that somewhere in this document, it gives him the right to overrule a contract dispute that was fairly decided within the terms of that contract. Remind me again, which article talks about the NFL? Article X? Or maybe it's the 4th and Goal Amendment. So how much did T.O. donate to your reelection campaign anyway?
