Last week Senator Arlen Spector suggested the federal government should force the Eagles to start Terrell Owens. He suggested that Congressional hearings should be held on the Eagle's starting lineup.
Apparently he didn't realize that football is already regulated, by the House of Representatives. They plan to look into how the much maligned Bowl Championship Series (BCS) selects teams to play in college bowls.
A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee, charged with regulating America's sports industry, announced Friday it will conduct a hearing on the BCS next week, after this season's bowl match-ups are determined.Regular readers of this site know that I'm no fan of the BCS system, but Congressional interference is not the answer.
