Nader and Jackson join the TO fray

Double Technical updates us on the Terrell Owens saga, now that Ralph Nader and Jesse Jackson have weighed in. Nader frames the issue as one of consumer protection, arguing that fans are being ripped off by not being permitted to see TO play. And since Jackson referred to Owens's four-game suspension (possibly paid, possibly unpaid) and subsequent paid six-game sitdown as a "one-year" ban, he's just showing off his math skills. That might also explain where all of PUSH's money went. When we have troops dying in Iraq, White House aides run amok and big oil company executives aren't sworn in before testifying before the Senate because poor little Ted Stevens of Alaska won't allow it, aren't there bigger fish to fry?

And now US Sen. Arlen Specter is getting involved. On WIP-AM this morning, Specter said he'd look carefully at whether the Eagles' suspension (unpaid and paid) of TO was an illegal restraint of trade. Don't these guys have anything better to do? And as for Dallas owner Jerry Jones tampering with TO? Nope.
