I finally breathed a sigh of relief yesterday when the various ESPN talking heads confidently said that Spygate was pretty much over.

Unfortunately, Arlen Specter doesn't feel that way and he's willing to spend our hard-earned tax dollars to get (I shit you not) an INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION!

ESPN - Specter criticizes NFL, wants independent Spygate investigation

    WASHINGTON -- Sen. Arlen Specter wants an independent investigation of the New England Patriots' taping of opposing coaches' signals similar to the Mitchell report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball.

    Specter again criticized the NFL's handling of the investigation during a news conference Wednesday.

1. This pretty much ensures that Spygate will become the STORY THAT NEVER DIES!

2. To the people of Pennsylvania: Arlen Specter is up for re-election in 2010. I'm just saying...

3. I've asked this once and I'll keep asking it again and again. What is the POINT of this? There's a freakin' war and a fledgling ecomony happening before our eyes and our time and tax dollars are about to be wasted on finding out if the New England Patriots cheated. What a load of crap.

We already know they cheated and lied about it.

My problem is more that the penalty wasn't enough.

I thought the penalty was fair, I don't know what people want? It's becoming the most uninteresting story in sports.

Hey maybe there's more pressing matters the government should be dealing with other than the fucking NFL.

The only thing the latest information has confirmed is what most of us knew already: Mike Martz is stupid. If a bunch of people are wandering around the building the day before the Super Bowl, don't show anything.

Please make this go away ... I'm not a Patriots fan by any means, but they paid their fine, lost their draft pick, etc. Let's move on to more important things.

Specter's just pissed because he's an Eagles fan.

It's either that, or there's speculation he's causing a nuisance to the NFL on behalf of PA based Comcast, who are annoyed they can't carry Sunday Ticket and have NFL Network issues. - luchablog

If it's because of that, it's yet ANOTHER reason for me to absolutely loathe Comcast.

Becoming?! Have I missed something *more* mind numbing??

Everyone involved in this looks like more of an ass the longer it goes on.

Roger Goodell has flip flopped from pissed off hard line enforcer, to laissez-faire as it suited him.

The Pats piss me off for their press release filled with moral indignation after it came out that Walsh had no tape of the Rams' walkthrough. How dare anyone accuse them of lying about their cheating?!

Arlen Specter and Matt Walsh? Well they looked like asses from the outset.

The Pats SHOULD have just said the whole taping signals thing was just an excuse to get the footage of the cheerleaders, and this whole thing could have been forgiven and forgotten months ago.

The Grey Cup has been BC's to win or lose since about mid-season. It's been a disappointing season in the CFL, starting with the sudden dissipation of the Renegades weeks before the season started.
