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?
