Limbaugh’s Words Won’t Deter League From Selling the Rams to Him

Bloomberg reports that words with the NFL will have no bearing on Rush Limbaugh’s possible future in buying the Rams:

Rush Limbaugh’s future as a National Football League owner will be determined by his wallet, not his words. Big bucks trump flaming bombast, especially in this economic climate. The conservative talk-radio personality, a Missouri native and short-lived ESPN football analyst, is part of an investor group that wants to buy a controlling stake in the St. Louis Rams. … Limbaugh during his radio show once said the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips, referring to rival street gangs. … There have been some whoppers, all right. And none of it will mean a thing when owners gather to decide whether Limbaugh should own the Rams. Limbaugh, who reaches about 20 million listeners and is syndicated on about 600 radio stations, last year signed an eight-year, $400 million contract with Clear Channel Communications Inc.

    It was amazing how Rush’s 1 comment was so misinterpreted and blown out of proportion. He simply stated on ESPN that he felt that that the press over-hyped Donovan McNabb’s abilities because he was black…in essence implying that the press was guilty of reverse-racism… It wasn’t a racial slur anymore than saying that people like Robert Redford because he’s good looking (not necessarily because he’s a good actor). Now if he had stated that someone was a bad QB or coach because they were black, or that a white guy couldn’t jump because he was white, THEN you’d be getting racist. Actually, Rush’s comment somewhat was in defense of McNabb…that everyone’s expectations about McNabb were overblown by the press so that everyone was disappointed when he was unspectacular, creating unnecessary hatred towards McNabb. Rush never said that McNabb was a bad QB, only that McNabb’s talent was overstated by the press. I’m sure that if the discussion had continued, instead of silence that followed when Rush said “black” (OMG), that Rush would have acknowledged that McNabb was a good QB (just not as good as the press made him out to be).
    Ironically, Rush lost his commentator gig, and has been unjustifiably vilified all because of this one honest comment, talk about a lynching…
