Residing amongst the lower echelon of the NFL’s with of success challenged teams, the St. Louis Rams have been a team in desperate need of positive spotlight.
Unfortunately for Rams supporters, fate seems to only be throwing more of the same their way, as more negativity has surfaced to plunge the team into more of a funk than it has already been in.
Compliments of “Racist” Rush Limbaugh, the once glorious Rams are facing an inglorious looking future, with the ridiculous redneck rascal possibly ascending the one of America’s legendary positions of power by becoming an NFL team owner.
With solid backing by those residing on the lunatic fringe right-wing, fox news watching end of the spectrum, the move seems to have gained steam with some in middle America while hitting a snag with the National Football League’s most vital ingredient, the players.
Several of the leagues Black players are speaking out against the possibility of Limbaugh owning any NFL franchise with all outright saying that they would never suit up for the bigot due to his beliefs.
“I am not going to draw a conclusion form a person off of one comment, but when it is time after time after time and there’s a consistent pattern of disrespect and just a complete misunderstanding of an entire culture that I am a part of, I can’t respect him as a man,” remarked Mathias Kiwanuka of the New York Giants on the possibility of playing for Limbaugh.
A former analyst for ESPN, the pugnacious pill-popper was fired by the network after making racially charged comments about Philly QB Donovan McNabb in 2003, expressing that he felt that the media was “very desirous that a black quarterback do well.”
Bart Scott of the Jets has probably been the most vocal of the potential buy.
“A lot of us too it (the McNabb comment) as more of a racial-type thing…I know I wouldn’t want to play for him. He’s a jerk. He’s an A$$…He could pay me whatever he wanted, I wouldn’t play for him. I wouldn’t play for Rush Limbaugh. My principles are greater and I can’t be bought.”
Partnering with Dave Checketts, owner of the National Hockey League’s St. Louis Blues, Limbaugh is still in the early stages of negotiations for the team. If a decision to sell the team is reached, one bidding group will be chosen for consideration, with that group at the mercy of the NFL’s 32 owners after being chosen. 24 of them must vote in favor of the group in order for them to become franchise owners.
Limbaugh is adamant in his non-support of President Obama and any progressive movement, saying on several occasions that he hopes the President “fails.” As a starry-eyed young American, I hope this particular business endeavor meets the same end that he has wished on our President.
Complete and utter failure. . .
