I don't know what Specter could be thinking?

The NFL isn't a monopoly, there is plenty of competition for the entertainment dollar. The league is just maximizing its revenue, who can argue with that?

If someone doesn't want to pay for these broadcasts, then don't. Watch something else on the other 200 TV stations, listen to radio programs, go out bowling, to a movie, to a bar.

He's thinking of setting up a precedent of Congressional intrusion into the NFL, so that when the inevitable doping scandal breaks, Congress can pull an MLB.

The NFL didn't try to stop the XFL or the World League or any of the other startups from going...

More or less they ignored them and focused on their product on the field.
