    ASS.. He wont let this thing die.. Its a shame that its gotten this far, and had to be brought up during one of the best weeks when your team is in the super bowl.. I suggest all Pats fans, bombard him with letters emails and do what it takes to let him know, not just because we are Pats fans and he is making a mockery of the whole Patriots dynasty.. But he is trying to put football on the same stage with that joke baseball and Clemens.. He was near my neighborhood on Monday, but did not know about it .. Would have loved to give it to him personally what I feel.. He is a old fart that just wont give this up, even though Godell said to drop it..

    I believe I read that email from out of state (I guess it can track IP address location?) was being rejected. If that's not correct or there is a working address someone should post that here.

    Why should he drop it? It means potential votes from Steelers and Eagles fans should he dicide to put his corrupt old ass up for re-election.

    Re: Spector is a pompus....

    The thing is , and I haven't seen this mentioned explicitely in the media; but he's really calling Goodell a liar, and calling into question Goodell's ethics.

    If I was Goodell, I'd be absoletely pissed.
    Its one thing to call the Patriots cheaters for videotaping (although even thats overdoign it); its another thing to accuse the NFL Commissioner of being an immorral, unethical liar

    And of course, Spector is admitting to being an uneducated homer eagles fan. The patriots did nothing that was against the US law. They did something that was against the NFL rules starting last season. It was not against the rules against the eagles in the superbowl, and it was not against the law, so his whole reason for being angry has no justification.

    Which would put it out of the realm of his business to begin with.

    Re: Spector is a pompus....

    I see stories in the Globe and Herald headlined "Patriots Taping Since 2000, according to Specter." Nowhere in the stories does it say it wasn't against the rules. I guess I'm being naive to expect that the sports reporters for those papers would point that out.

    Re: Spector is a pompus....

    He was asked this and he said that this clearly falls into the category of theft of trade secrets, which is against federal law. laughed my a** off, out loud....seriously...had a picture in my head of federal agents running out on a baseball field during a game and cuffing a runner at second base for stealing the catcher signals

    Re: Spector is a pompus....

    If Specter actually said that, then he's even stupider than I thought. How can something that is acted out in an arena, surrounded by thousands of witnesses, taped by the organization, and broadcast to millions of viewers be 'secret' in any way?

    Not only that "competitive intelligence" is a real and huge practice around the world where corporations spy on their competitors all of the time! Yet I haven't seen one prosecuted publicly.

    Re: Spector is a pompus....

    If this senile, corrupt bastard decides to run for re-election in 2010 (when he will be 80 years old BTW), I say we start a fundraising drive for his primary and/or general election opponent.

    Re: Spector is a pompous...

    I've emailed Specter and Kennedy so far- Specter was probably a waste of time, because his comment form bounces your response if you're not from PA, and he's probably too crazy to listen to reason anyway.

    But I think if the NE senators get enough emails from their constituents, they might just listen. Everyone knows half the reason Specter's doing this is because he thinks he'll win the support of Eagles and Steelers fans who are still bitter about losing to the Pats. Well, there are plenty of us Pats fans, we're pretty f'ing pissed at this point, and we have 6 times as many senators as they do. So let's do something about this.

    Re: Spector is a pompous...

    supposedly he's not running for re-election, although I suppose that's always subject to change.
    most likely, he's doing this partly because he's a dick, and partly for his comcast masters.

    anyway, he can't do **** on his own.

    Re: Spector is a pompous...

    Those are probably the main reasons... but if he were just trying to screw the NFL, there's no reason to investigate only the Patriots. He could hurt the NFL far more by pulling a Mitchell report and trying to embarrass the entire league. So I firmly believe his feelings specifically towards the Pats have a lot to do with his actions.

    Re: Spector is a pompous...

    writing to him won't get you ****.

    the best you could do along those lines would be to write comcast telling them to **** off because you're getting a dish.

    Comcast is always calling trying to get me to switch to them. I absolutely RELISH those phone calls. They haven't called lately...I can't wait until they do.
