Specter questions Patriots success
After meeting with a former Patriots employee who helped the team spy on opponents, Senator Arlen Specter on Wednesday described the team's illicit videotaping tactics as more systematic and deliberate than what the NFL has acknowledged publicly. said the former employee, Matt Walsh, described elaborate measures by the Patriots to conceal their filming of opponents' signals. Walsh also explained how the Patriots' coaching staff gleaned strategic information from members of the team's video crew who had watched the Rams' walk-through practice before the 2002 Super Bowl. He also identified more games and opponents that were filmed by the Patriots and detailed the advantages the team gained in later games. Specter, a longtime Eagles fan, has battled with the NFL on several issues over the years. This time, with his continued criticism of the league's investigation into the Patriots, he is raising questions about the legitimacy of the Patriots' accomplishments -- which include three Super Bowl titles this decade, one against the Eagles, and an 18-0 record last season before a loss to the Giants in the Super Bowl.
Now call me stupid or ignorant, but isnt there alot more important stuff for Arlen Specter and the government to be worrying about than if the New England Patriots cheated or not??? Maybe.. Idon know.. A war in Iraq, Oil prices out of control, or economy is in the toilet, I think those should be looked at first before this. It amazes me that we keep oting this guy into office and he is waiting our time, money and resources on this non issue!!! I mena come on we have all cheated on something at one time in our lives like Im guilty at hording some extra money while playing Monopoly but it doesnt call for a full government panel to see if I was punished or not. This goes along with Baseball and Congresses involvement in the steriod trials. Enough is enough!!!! Government, you concentrate on government issues that efect me and my well being and economic stability and NOTHING ELSE!!! Football and Baseball Comissioners handle your discipline fairly and justly and do your jobs.
PS I will gladly accept the Baseball and Football comissioners job if you want you sports saved!!!
