Players Stand Up and Say 'No' to Limbaugh
The NFL Union and it's players are standing together and saying, 'NO' to Rush Limbaugh in his new bid to be owner or part owner of an NFL franchise. The franchise taking bids is the St. Louis Rams. Recently Al Sharpton and Jesse jackson have lent their opinions and their voices to making sure Rush Limbaugh is not an owner of any NFL.
The voice of conservative talk radio is known for comments like such....
Here are two quotes attributed to Limbaugh in a 2006 book, "101 People Who Are Really Screwing America," by Jack Huberman.
"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray (Dr. King's assassin). We miss you, James. Godspeed."
"Let's face it; we didn't have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: Slavery built the South. I'm not saying we should bring it back. I'm just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."
After making statements like such, now Rush Limbaugh wants to own an NFL team. The NFL is a league that is 40% African American. Some people say he should have the right to own whatever his money can buy, but the NFL owners are a club and Rush is not NFL ownership material. With all the good that is going on in the NFL as it is clearly the most popular sport in the country, giving ownership to Rush Limbaugh will defiantly put a pothole on a smooth street. The owners would have to agree that Rush will be bringing something to the table as an owner, but Commissioner Goodell, current players, former players, and even a fan like myself know he wouldn’t add anything, just taking away. Limbaugh would put a negative on the NFL and I wonder why Commissioner Goodell is taking so long to make the correct decision.
