    Forget about homlessness, forget about genocide, or the war in Iraq, or orphans. Who cares that the environment is going down the tubes?

    Kerry chooses a legit cause worthy of his time. Never mind that people could just buy Directv. It's pretty sad that the government has to intervene on this.

    It is what it is. The NFL is a corporation that has a product to sell. They don't have to let people watch their game's for free. If they want to be greedy, they can.

    The Government regulates businesses. The NFL is a business. The fact that the NFL has an antitrust exemption means that if the NFL abuses that power that it IS the govt's business.

    true, it's not like Bill Gates has ever dominated a market or Walmart has ever controlled a market also.

    the fact is people are mad because it inconveniences them. they don't want to go to a bar or restauarant or buy direct tv.

    homelessness doesn't bother people until it's in your neighborhood or you become homeless.

    Kerry should do something legit like increase recycling or get rid of tolls. Can't believe he took up this cause for a few votes.

    our world will be a better place to live and work if our government really pays attention to our concerns.

    I hope Kerry will write a letter to SS office or unemployment office for us when we need help. Do you believe that Kerry actually worries about our football game when he and other don't care about our healthcare and wages.?

    what's up with Kenedy nowday.? If he writes a letter to NFL commission, i'm sure this football coverage will be resolved quickly. Kerry and Kenedy need to team up.

    The NFL has a special EXEMPTION from the law. Wal-Mart and Microsoft don't. Wal-Mart dominates markets but is not alleged to do anything illegal. It's just good at what it does I guess.

    It's a red herring to bring up other companies. The NFL has a special exemption. It agrees to do certain things for that.

    Kerry pursuing this doesn't mean he isn't persuing "recycling" or whatever. Tolls?

    What you're doing is making a false dichotomy. He either pursues this or pursues other things. He can do both.

    And yeah, "solve homelesssness". He'll pass a law, creating a 'program' that will do just that. So simple! Why don't you run for senate?

    This should be no surprise to anybody that follows the corruption in the MA congressional delegation. Who is the 4th largest contributor to Kerry's 2008 re-election campaign ? Time Warner, who owns dozens of cable companies:

    They were the #5 single largest contributor to Kerry in the 2004 election:

    No flipping here .... at least when Kerry's bought, he stays bought.

    Asking a New England politician to not come out against Pats fans missing an important game is like telling Brady he can't hit Moss even though Moss is standing alone in the end zone. Because its too easy. He has to do the sporting thing and force one into Gaffney even though he's triple covered.

    Congressmen and Senators do an enormous amount of work that never gets noticed. They have to go after easy ones like this one just to be noticed.
