    I think this speaks volumes about Specter's true motives behind all of this.

    Good to see his Hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    Bye Bye, Arlen.

    Wow! I am shocked! With the overwhelming support he had in the Senate, he is just going to drop it like that? He is going to leave all the Senators who put their careers on the line to publically support him out to dry?

    Everyone knew it would only be a matter of time that Specter dropped the whole thing. I figured he would just pushing off actions on Spygate indefinitely until the media and public totally forgot.

    As for his next pet project of publically financed stadiums, I wish him luck there. I don't see him getting very far since it is a state issue, not a federal one. As far as I know, no team has gotten federal money to build a stadium. Businesses get state money all the time (or at least tax breaks) to build property in their state.

    Well, he's not a Sixers fan and Comcast has no beef with the NBA. I don't see the hypocrisy. He is all for the integrity of the game when his own personal interests are threatened. I see him being very consistent.

    "I've taken it as far as I can" ... ha, ha! Translation: "No one will listen to me!"

    "Not Interested" in allegations that a ref threw a playoff game? What a total a-hole! Are you kidding me Arlen?

    As for his latest fascination: Public financing of stadiums... I don't know what his angle is, but I guarantee there is some money to be made for old Arlen if that is what he has now chose to focus on. Either that or someone who has already contributed large sums of money has something to gain by this. No way this moron is doing it for the public good.

    The old fart seriously needs to focus on something more meaningful.... he is looking more and more pathetic every day.

    ESPN and the NYT will have to break out the black bunting and conduct a day of mourning for their spygate ratings saver. Arlen is slinking away like a beaten dog - should take Tomase with him on his next quest. Good luck poking sticks at Jerry Jones, Jim Irsay, The Mara's/Johnson and Stienbrenners of the world and their state of the art taxpayer funded venues... He'd have better luck and more broadbased support in a quest to take Stern down over NBA officiating scandals, but I guess he'd rather mindlessly tilt at personal windmills. Gonna waste more tax dollars either way though, and at the end of the day that's all it's ever about for this clown. He's not interested in really accomplishing anything other than getting the national media to pay attention to him. John could be his press secretary.

    BTW his sudden stadium interest is likely rooted in the fact that Philly's NFC arch rivals are due to open theirs in 2009 and the revenue they generate will further threaten his beloved Iggles never ending quest for that elusive Lombardi... And we all know there has to be an underlying conspiratorial reason Philly can just never win one beyond choking QB's and incompetent clock management...

    Isn't it funny how much press Spygate received compared to the press the NBA's received even though their allegations are far more horrible? Agenda anyone?

    I am embarrassed to say that he is from my state. His perfidy knows no bounds.

    Now all we need is the posters on this forum to shut up about it, and we're in the clear. ;)

    LOL - it's just about over. The fact that he freaked out about the stupid camera but isn't interested in proven, admitted fixing of NBA games speaks volumes. And while I agree that stadiums shouldn't be publicly financed, that financing is always (I believe always, certainly most of the time) voted on by the people.

    Good riddance Arlen. You only made things worse for everyone and made yourself look like a total maroon.

    The espn headline and story was fairly mild in comparison to the column in today's Philadelphia Weekly titled Arlen Specter says fandom alone is fueling his NFL investigation.

    The article goes on: "The most dangerous place in D.C. is between a politician and a camera. And yet in the case of Spygate, Specter stands alone. Is he a prophet of the next great sports scandal or a mule for Comcast, with balloons of bandwidth in his belly?"

    I said this a long time ago, Sports History is not going to be kind to Arlen Specter.

    Wouldnt you think this would be the end of this Senators career?

    I have always though about this when he started his personal vendetta against the Patriots that he was putting his career on the line if nothing comes out of this.....and now that nothing has come from it....he's done....finished...
