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.
