Rush Limbaugh likes to talk. And Rush will always speak his mind. And maybe that is what will keep him from becoming part owner in the NFL Rams football franchise.
The Rosenbloom family is putting the St. Louis Rams up for sale and Limbaugh is part of a group that has expressed interest in buying the pro football team. But comments Limbaugh has made in the past seem to have caught up with the conservative talk show host, and one of the NFL owners has already come out to say he would not vote for ownership for Limbaugh.
Jim Irsay of the Indianapolis Colts said recently “I, myself, couldn’t even consider voting for him,” Irsay said at the owners meetings. “When there are comments that have been made that are inappropriate, incendiary and insensitive … our words do damage, and it’s something that we don’t need.”
Some of the comments Rush has made include, “The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.” and in regards to Donovan McMahon, “I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well.”
Rush Limbaugh has his image to uphold and the NFL has theirs, and the outspoken Limbaugh may be too much for the NFL owners to handle, so look for a rejection for Rush on this one.
