Mind you, I'm no fan of Rush Limbaugh, my conservatism aside...  But, this cold shoulder the NFL is giving him in relation to his bid to buy the Rams seems really lame...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Irsay 'couldn't consider' voting for Rush as owner
CBS SportsLine.com NFL News (13.10.2009 15:25)
Rush Limbaugh's bid to buy the St. Louis Rams ran into opposition within the NFL on Tuesday. Colts owner Jim Irsay vowed to vote against him and commissioner Roger Goodell said the conservative commentator's 'divisive' comments would not be tolerated from any NFL insider.

 
Goodell casts doubt on Limbaugh bid
United Press International: Sports (13.10.2009 15:33)
BOSTON, Miss., Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Rush Limbaugh's "divisive comments" may put him out of the running as owner of the St. Louis Rams, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday.

Well, this problem resolved itself...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Controversial Limbaugh dropped from group seeking to buy Rams
NFL.com (14.10.2009 19:08)
Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has been dropped from a group that's seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams.

 
Don't get me wrong (in my post right above)...  I understand how his comments about Donovan McNabb made while he was working at ESPN make this a sticky situation for the NFL.  But, make no mistakes...  That is because he was wrong.  If he were right, then all of this would be just more proof in the pudding of what a bunch of impotent self-loathers we are becoming in America!
