Feds shut down sports streaming sites, by why now?

So news breaks today bout the big arrest of one web operator in Michigan running 16 illegal sports streaming websites. I agree this is illegal and it’s stealing. What I wonder is why just now, just before Superbowl XLVI.  It suggests that the feds are worried about Superbowl revenue, instead of the general legal issues at hand.

And last year we saw the same thing. Again just before the superbowl.

I agree with what the DOJ did, I just don’t like the timing. If the site is illegal shut it down, just don’t make it look like you’re taking your queues from private industry.
