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.
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.

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.
