Senator Specter Says T.O. Is Being Blacklisted
By KYW's Tony Romeo Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Arlen Specter says he is looking into the Terrell Owens situation, saying the former Eagles receiver is being "blacklisted" from football.
Senator Specter, like fellow Philadelphian Governor Ed Rendell, is a huge Eagles fan. As to the impact Terrell Owens has had on the Eagles season, Specter says hes "madder than hell."
But, he says, Owens has not committed a crime, and that the punishment being imposed on Owens is "vindictive" and "inappropriate."
"And I believe a man or a woman has a right to undertake his profession, or his sport, or his activities. And I believe that they blacklisted him from football."
During a news conference in Harrisburg, Specter also commented on reports about allegations of tampering against Cowboys owner Jerry Jones because of comments jones made about Owens and reports that the league had told teams not to contact Owens.
That, Specter says, may constitute restraint of trade and a possible anti-trust violation.
Er, comment should read "stabbing Republicans in the back"...
Specter is playing to his liberal base!
No wonder they couldn't spend time on Alito hearings - they're so busy with this important stuff...
I like the concept...can we blacklist Specter?
The same guy who pushed back hearings on the Supreme Court nominee because there "just wasn't time". Great.
Yeah, funny he has time to get involved in the NFL, but his schedule is too busy to hold hearings for SCOTUS, for which we pay him. Does the NFL pay him for his advice?
Specter and Owens have a lot in common when it comes to teamwork. Just wish it was just as easy to bench Specter.
FU Arlen. Mind your damn business and keep your stinking rotten government out of private business. Keep your bloated, money sucking government out of personal lives. If Owens were being put in blocks he may have jurisdiction. That jag Owens is being paid and that's all TO is really about. Go away Arlen or just switch parties and be done with it.
Oh, so now it's Spectator, is it?
This is surprising, because Specter rarely flies against public opinion, and the public is not with Owens on this, it's with the Eagles.
I think it demonstrates how clueless Specter is, on many levels.
Careful Arlen! Your politics are sometimes puzzling to us, but getting involved in the TO-saga -- to the detriment of the Eagles -- we won't forgive.
Actually, I always vote against Arlen, but I enjoy dissing a Rhino...
So let me get this straight. The Judiciary committe was too busy to take on the Alito nomination before the holidays, but Spectre has time to straighten out things between TO and the Eagles? hmm....?
Sorry Senator Spector, TO is under contract. He is being paid by your home town team. They do not feel having him on their active roster is in their best interest.
It may come as a surprise to you as a Senator, THAT IS THEIR DECISION NOT YOURS.
Every once in a while Sen. Specter takes on a legal client. Perhaps he's trolling for a high-profile case here?
Specter probably thinks Terrell Owens is the U.S. sprinter who won those gold medals at the 1936 Olympic in Berlin, and that the Eagles could face an age discrimination lawsuit for benching him.
Hey Arlen baby, How about concentrating on your duties as the Judiciary Chairman rather than a football team's internal affairs.
Like, maybe, conducting a hearing for the NEXT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE when you find the time! Idiot.
