NFL Changes Church Policy
(Yes I'd say this is political).
The NFL will now allow religious organizations to broadcast the Super Bowl publicly with any size TV or projection screen. Florio makes an interesting point that the league may be trying to buy some goodwill with Congress in advance of upcoming investigations.
The move is the most concrete evidence to date of the apparent discomfort that the league currently is feeling in the face of arguably unprecedented interest by Congress in its activities. Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) has been stirring up trouble over Spygate, and Senator Patrck Leahy (D-Vt.) authorized last week the expenditure of funds by the Senate Judiciary Committee for further investigation of the manner in which the league handled materials surrendered by the Patriots in September 2007, and regarding recent allegations of cheating at Super Bowl XXXVI.

Supposedly Specter was going to author a bill forcing hte NFL's hands on this. Seems Specter is just busting the NFL's balls every which way he can.
