Add "Squealer" to the list of Brady's sins: Internet streaming sites seized by Feds

The Federal Government has swooped in and seized several domain names used to stream professional sports over the internet, including such sites as: Firstrowsports.tv, Firstrowsports.com and Soccertvlive.net.

An AP Wire story posted on WTOP.com (http://www.wtop.com/?nid=351&sid=2732316) leads off with:

NEW YORK (AP) - With the Super Bowl days away, federal authorities announced a crackdown Thursday on websites that stream unauthorized broadcasts of sports events just hours after New England quarterback Tom Brady told reporters in Indianapolis that he watched last year's game on an illegal site. (emphasis added)

Brady is quoted later in the article as saying: "Last year I was rehabbing my foot in Costa Rica, watching the game on an illegal Super Bowl website. And now I'm actually playing in the game. So, it's pretty cool," Brady said.

Its a stretch of the imagination to think the Feds acted in response to Brady's comments, but given his inflated sense of self-importance, one has to wonder why he would even mention using an "illegal" website in the first place; to seem "cool, hip, and cutting edge"?

Now that it seems many at Steeler Nation will no longer have internet access to watch their favorite team, we have one more reason (as if we needed any more), to hate Brady. Go Giants!
