Your thoughts on Limbaugh and the NFL?

Roger Goodell basically put his foot down yesterday at the NFL owners meeting in Boston saying Limbaugh has pretty much no chance of owning any team in the NFL.

PFT had a pretty funny article regarding the situation Limbaugh's reaction.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...about-exiting/

Quote:

After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell dropped a very strong hint regarding the league's ultimate position on whether radio host Rush Limbaugh will be welcomed into the ownership club, we thought that Limbaugh might decide to simply declare victory and retreat.

He didn't. And he says he won't.

On Wednesday, in the first segment of his daily show, Limbaugh said that he's "not even thinking of exiting" the process of attempting to purchase the controlling interest in the Rams along with Dave Checketts, owner of the St. Louis Blues.

And Limbaugh focused his frustration with the opposition to his ownership on the notion that liberals don't want to see successful conservatives occupy mainstream positions, ignoring this quote that Goodell offered on Tuesday: "We're all held to a high standard here and divisive comments are not what the NFL's all about. I would not want to see those kind of comments from people who are in a responsible position in the NFL, no. Absolutely not."

Limbaugh specifically targeted Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and those in the media who rely on Sharpton and Jackson as authorities in matters of this nature.

Regardless of whether Limbaugh is right or wrong in this regard, the point is that the guy who runs the NFL has made it fairly clear that Rush isn't welcome.

The challenge for Limbaugh moving forward will be to use the opposition to his efforts as a sword against the likes of Sharpton, Jackson, and the media without framing the issue as a question of whether it makes good business sense for the NFL to embrace a prominent and polarizing political figure into the ranks of ownership. While he might persuade many on the former point (included plenty of those not in his usual base), any suggestion from Limbaugh that the NFL doesn't have the right to make decisions based on the potential alienation of a large chunk of the fan base contradicts Limbaugh's core views regarding the manner in which American businesses should be permitted to do their business.

And that's what this ultimately is about. The league must decide whether it wants to do business with Limbaugh, just like it would have to decide whether to do business with Sharpton, if he wanted to buy a piece of a team.

But Limbaugh surely will never directly characterize the issue in that fashion.

That won't keep him from periodically throwing darts at the NFL, as he did when pointing out that Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas now owns part of the Dolphins -- and then playing a portion of the lyrics she sings in the song My Humps.

Still, the NFL has the right to embrace Fergie and reject Limbaugh, if the NFL so chooses. And any effort by Limbaugh to challenge the disparate treatment arising from the application of business judgment is not the product of conservative thought.

It's a concept that typically is pushed by liberals.
Hypocrisy is hilarious. So is trying to put the blame on liberals, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson as if they have anything to do with this.

This should not even be on the news, but they need us all to focus on limbaugh and John and Kate right now while they pass some more shit we don't want or need.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

Indeed.

Jackson was horribly misquoting Limbaugh yesterday as saying he was looking at the upside of slavery as there was no crime on the streets at night and the dude that shot Rev Martin Luther King Jr should receive a medal.

I'll be curious to see if there are any. I'm not sure on what grounds you can file a lawsuit, but Jerry Jones is much shadier cocksucker than Rush and he's the NFL's angel, so I guess that has to account for something.

Oh, I gotcha. Good point, too.

Goddell is in charge of a business that evidently has the right to approve Fergie owning a team but denies Rush Limbaugh the same privilege.

Sign of the times of another big business being stuck in the times of Hope and Change.

I do have to wonder why someone as polarizing as Rush would want to buy an NFL team to begin with. You've gotta think he's immediately eliminating a decent amount of the teams fans. What team does he want to buy? I haven't been following this closely.



No comment on the rest.

the way the NFL is structured as a private organization, that gives them the right to decide who is in and who is out.

Civil. Plus all the media outlets that are regurgitating a story that has been chased down to an angry blogger, never to actual real events.

Money has nothing to do with it you fool. Rush Limbaugh is trying to take ownership of a team in a league where 70% of the athletes are black. He's made it pretty fucking obvious over the years that he's racist, and if he were to become owner or even part owner, the league would lose a lot of fans. And there are even players on the Rams that have come out and said they refuse to play for the Rams if he has any involvement with the team.

It's a business decision. It doesn't have shit to do with money. It would be terrible for the NFL's PR.

PS: The owner of the Colts (a WHITE guy) said he would vote Limbaugh down if it comes to that.

Show the racism. Just because one individual doesn't believe in deep throating blacks because of something that happened 2 centuries ago doesn't qualify them as a racist.

Brent,

He's a minority partner in a group that wants to buy the Rams (home state team), plus the dude is a huge sports fan, used to work for the Royals and has been an avid Steelers fan since the 70's.

Since that enterprise is in agreement with the league that they have to maintain a personal conduct policy, and that Rush has voided himself of that entirely. The teams may be controlled by an owner, but they have standards to meet in order to remain in the NFL.

Here's a couple about the NFL itself:

"I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL,'' Limbaugh said. "The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They're interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well ... McNabb got a lot of the credit for the performance of the team that he really didn't deserve.''

Says he gets credit because he's black. That's racist.

"Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."

Racist.

"They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?"

Racist.

"Barack the Magic Negro"

Racist.

For starters, you should really try to keep the name calling to a minimum when you're statements are so erroneous. The Duke Lacrosse team and hundreds of others haven't had the money or brass tacks to deal with Jackson and Sharpton, but I believe they've just bit off more than they can chew. If you know the NFL's players are 70% black, then surely Limbaugh has that information as well. If he was indeed racist, why in the fuck would he want to invest in a bunch of black folk?!?

Bullshit!
The first point is social commentary. And pretty damn accurate, even Tom Jackson and Michael Irvin agreed until they were told to shut up. Mcnabb was over (and can still be considered 'is') overrated. The point is, he was accurate in the way he pointed out and discussed race. He wasn't being racist by making an observation.

Had he said "Mcnabb will never be a good quarterback because he's a nigger and niggers cause crime" THAT would have been racist.

Point 2. Racially accurate. It may be a little sensitive and penetrate that soft, guilty, white skin of yours, but I present to you Pacman Jones.

12% of the population is a statement based on numbers, where is it racist?

Barack the magic negro, again, may tap your thin skin, but it's not racist and you're portraying it out of context.

And seriously, the way Obama is treated as a savior and redeemer he walks around like a magic negro.


On a side note, I bet you'd shit your pants if you saw true racism.

Liberals college ideology is to rid the world of free thinkers and throw create sheeples to populate the masses.

Hahah so angsty.

Maybe you should choose a better college then. I'm about to finish my degree and I haven't seen any of this "liberal ideology" you speak of so much.

Says he gets credit because he's black. That's racist.
That's not racist at all, he is point out that the media is pushing a black achievement in the NFL. Turns out they do that for the president too. It is factually accurate, no matter how anybody likes it.

Racist.
So where is the racist part of that quote. Does it say he is singling out a specific race? I think not.

Would love to hear the context on these two, but I can't make much of an argument here.

Really? Because you spew it just like they taught you to.

It's so funny watching you find talking points , but not actually understanding what racism really is. Hilarious...... let's see some more illustrations of racism from you. I'm begging you , spell it out for us how Rush is racist.

79 K5 blazer, 6" lift 38x15" tires d44/12b lockers and chromoly axles ,6.2L GM diesel - Waste Vegetable Oil conversion - cross over steering,14"SAW nitrogen shocks, beefed shackles, shackle flip, winch/ bumpers, diff covers.

94 CBR 600 naked, handbraked, -1 +3 sprockets, one wheel operation mod

That is the dangerous and racist part of liberals. They automatically (without thought) assume the race based on word.

They categorize people into races and groups far more than conservatives do.

That is because you think it is normal. It is rampant.

If you can ever find it, take a look at a movie called "Indoctrinate U". It is about the liberal bias in colleges, as experienced by the students and the teachers themselves, from all sides of the "isle". I can't vouch for who made it or anything like that, but it is interesting to say the least.

I'm sure not "every" college is like that, but I would be willing to bet a significant number of them are.

Where do you go to school btw?

I think what pisses people off the most is that Rush is good at what he does and makes millions doing it. Hell the man makes over 30 million a year so he must be doing something right. I personally think Al Sharpton and the leftist media have gone to far this time and have finally pissed Rush off. He's going to make this battle personal and is going to fight fire with fire. Al Sharpton is only around because people are affraid of him labeling them or their organization as being racist. Rush is the only one that has the balls to finally call a spade a spade and called Al Sharpton's bluff.

Some estimates say he's worth right around a billion ($985M or so). Of course he's going to have haters.

And here is the outrageous view of a black man on the situation...

Dan Rooney (Steelers) is our amabassador to Ireland and publicly supported Obama during the election. If he can own a team then Rush should also be able to own one.

Maybe you should have chosen a better college that could have taught you how to state an opinion using a more effective word than "Hahah" as your opener. All your statement above indicates is that mentally you are still but a boy.

Rush had no part in the creation of the of the idiom or its origin/intent.

The man's an egomaniac and a narcissist, but not a racist.

The left loves to try to paint him as such but there's no truth to it.
