Senators Criticize NFL for Favoring Network
A group of U.S. senators sent NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
a letter Tuesday expressing continued concern over what they consider
the exclusionary nature of showing select games on the NFL Network. The letter, obtained by The New York Times, was signed by 13 senators,
including Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont and the chairman of
the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Arlen Specter, a Republican from Pennsylvania who has criticized Goodell on numerous issues, including the New England Patriots’ spying case.
