Re: why does congress want to look into"spygate"?

bottom line for me is instead of holding hearings because a bunch of asshole rich players is
stupid.hold a hearing on how to stop homelessness,hold a hearing about how slow redtape is in critical situations are why people in our country at this moment are starving.sports is entertainment and needs to be kept in it's proper place.like i said it's bullshit that these life saving things are way below the importance of the government when it comes to pro sports!!!

Instead of posting here you should go read a book, take a walk, volunteer somewhere

And my point there is that obviously you don't just post here, just like Congress doesn't just discuss sports (which incidentally is a major business).

CapitolHearings.org

(and it's Facenda, not Fracenda)

Re: why does congress want to look into"spygate"?

Have you been working on that comeback for 3 months?

Have a nice break.

BTW, if you read SS's post carefully, you would see he wasn't attacking you - he was making the point that Congress does focus on things other than Spygate, just like you (and all of us) focus on things other than the Skins.

Re: why does congress want to look into"spygate"?

His issues with me seem to run deeper than that (judging by PMs I've gotten). Who knows why? Yeah I've locked a couple of his threads, but they were duplicates/old topics/wrong forums/dumb topics so someone was going to lock them.

Thats funny. I just noticed that the post before his was 2/18/08 and when I saw this thread I thought it was because of the new info and not just to attack another poster.

Why is Comcast in a big lawsuit with the NFL?

Its called profit margin. They make about 8 cents on every dollar they spend. So if they spent $1 for a gallon of gas in 2000 they made 8 cents now if they spend $2 they make .16 cents. Their profit margin has not changed.

Ok,so you honestly believe they only make 8 cents on the dollar for a gallon of gas?What do you believe is there profit on the rest of the barrel of oil?

NFL Network. I believe it's something like the NFL has alleged that Comcast moved the NFL Network to a less accessible digital tier after the NFL didn't give 8 games to Comcast's Versus channel and instead gave it to NFL Network.
