Rush Limbaugh: Rams Future Owner?

October 10, 2009

Rush Limbaugh rams forward in his attempt to acquire the St. Louis Rams. The only problem is it seems as if nobody wants him there. Get the rest of the scoop here.

Rush Limbaugh, along with a hand full of other investors is trying to purchase the St. Louis Rams. If all goes as planned for the ultra conservative radio host, his bidding group will first be approved by the current owners of the team, and then again by at least 24 of the 32 people who own the National Football League.

This move comes even though it seems like African American football players don’t want to see the man who is known for being an advocate of conservatism anywhere near the NFL or its teams.

N.Y. Jets players Mathias Kiwanuka and Bart Scott both said that they would never consider playing for a team owned by the two time best selling author. In one statement, Kiwanuka went as far as saying that:

“I can’t respect him as a man.”

RL first found himself in scalding hot water back in 2003 when he had to resign from ESPN after accusing the media of being “very desirous that a black quarterback do well”. That statement was a shot at Donovan McNabb, suggesting he was over hyped as a QB.

McNabb finally had his chance to fire back at a recent press conference, in which he said he “wont be in St. Louis anytime soon” if the deal goes through.

With all of his opponents, the question is now, is Limbaugh going to end up loosing yards on this rush?

    I just love when people (loudly) reveal how ignorant they are. I wonder if Kiwanuka or Scott has ever listened to one word Limbaugh has ever spoken. Or rather, it appears that they have listened to what other people say he says. And not only have they formed (an uninformed) opinion about Limbaugh based on what they heard he says, but they have now stated that they would refuse multi-million dollar paychecks based on those ignorant and uninformed opinions. I wonder if either one of these people can point to one thing Limbaugh has ever said that offends them so. How about it, Kiwanuka and Scott? Please enlighten us with the basis of your opinions – and don’t tell us that you heard he is a racist. That doesn’t fly.

    One thing is certain, Rush is no loser and the Rams under his ownership will win. Employees who don’t agree with everything the boss says can always look elsewhere for a paycheck.

    The league and the other owners will never approve Limbaugh as an owner. He brings too much negative baggage.
    He has a long, public record of racist comments, and he would scare away some percentage of players and fans.
    And that’s bad for football.

    Before I accuse you of being ignorant, look at this website and you will see why he’s offensive. They have actual soundbites;

    Limbaugh is a bigot and a racist and has no business in the NFL, and, yes I have heard it.

    I’d love to see Limbaugh step on to an NFL field and say those things to his team. He’d be laid out unconscious within a couple of seconds.

    I don’t blame the players for saying they won’t play for the man. He’s a bigot and has never even tried to hide it. I’m white and if Rush Limbaugh owned the only grocery store within 500 miles of my home, I would sooner starve first.

    Speaking of (loudly) making “ignorant” statements, why do you ASSUME Kiwanuka or
    Scott are not politically active and have a valid opinion based on their own judgement of his commentary? It’s as if you’re saying they don’t drive to work every morning, drive back home, and listen to talk radio like many of us.

    Who’s displaying ignorance here? They know why they feel that way, and you don’t, yet you feel inclined to judge them. You make conservatives look bad with your prejudice. I’m a conservative and even I think he’s an idiot.

    Dave Says:

    Baron, I am a conservative and I don’t think he is an idiot and according to CPAC most conservatives don’t. You are entitled to your opinion, however, I believe that Mandy is probably correct in her assumption as has been shown historically to be correct. There may be a mistake but historically not. She does not make conservatives look bad, it is her opinion, just like liberals have theirs, it’s a great country.

    Baron Says:


    The point I was making wasn’t whether or not he’s an idiot (though I’m sure many would like to argue that one), it is that she stated that those football players where making ignorant statements….without knowing herself whether or not they where indeed ignorant statements.

    She made an ignorant statement by making an assumption about people she doesn’t know. What “history” are you referring to? The history of football players not knowing politics???? I’d love to see that data backing that conclusion (as I grab my stomach laughing). I’d say that was a “jump” to a conclusion, er, ignorant statement if ever there was one.

    The NFL has happily accepted back a man that beat, tortured, electrocuted, and drowned dogs to death.

    Maybe Limbaugh’s detractors should actually listen to a full show before they label him one way or the other. 95% of his statements are taken completely out of context.
