SpyGate Comes Up During Steroid Hearing
While testifying before the House subcommittee on commerce, trade and consumer protection today, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was asked about "SpyGate" by Rep. Vito J. Fossella (R-N.Y.).
Because the subject of the hearing was the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sports, Rep. Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.), the chairman of the subcommittee, told Goodell that he didn't have to answer.
Goodell said he wanted to answer, however, and told Fossella he thought the league had punished the New England Patriots swiftly and sufficiently for illegally videotaping the play signals of the New York Jets in the opening game of the season.
Goodell said nothing about the criticism of the league's investigation by Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) or the recent negotiations over an indemnification agreement so that league officials can interview former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh.
