Arlen Specter is a Stupid Piece of Crap

Frankly, I'd rather have Terrell Owens himself as a Senator than this sanctiminuous busybody, who thinks Owens was treated "unfairly" by the Philadelphia Eagles and National Football League, and thinks there may have been a violation of antitrust law. Even though:

Arbitrator Richard Bloch said last week the team's actions were supported by the labor agreement between the league and the NFL Players Association.

"The arbitrator's decision is consistent with our collective bargaining agreement, and it simply enforced the terms of the player's contract," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said.

Some legal experts disagreed with Specter's view.

"To have an antitrust violation, you have to have a contract or conspiracy in restraint of trade," said Robert McCormick, a law professor at Michigan State University.

Matthew J. Mitten, director of the National Sports Law Institute at Marquette University, said, "We're in the labor arena, not antitrust."
