Specter needs something to link himself to because he seems to need the attention. After his time as senator he probably wants to write a book and needs some fodder for the pages, but this is ridiculous. He has spent all his time focusing on the NFL, while gas prices are climbing at a steady pace, we still have troops overseas and we have a presidential campaign that has been building and building and is charging toward November.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There are a lot of other things Senator Specter could be and should be doing with his time. Every company has flaws, no one is perfect. The government stepped in on the steroids in baseball issue because it seemed that MLB Commissioner Bud Selig was content with the way the game was and that nothing was going to be done about the issue. Goodell in every instance has shown that he is a no-nonsense commissioner and that anyone who does anything in anyway to embarrass or shame the NFL or its image will be punished.
Specter needs to return to his desk, drop the sports pages in the trash and get focused on issues that affect the American public every day. Let Goodell handle the NFL issues.
