Rush Limbaugh Wants His Very Own Football Team, Faces Opposition

| Filed under: ZportzPolitik

wenn2243650rush.jpg

Conservative hoo-ha Rush Limbaugh has placed a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams, which has sent liberal members of the NFL and Democrats into a tizzy!

According to reports, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the NFL will not stand for Limbaugh's "divisive comments… [which] are not what the NFL is all about."

Diss!

Over on Capitol Hill, Democratic Texas rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is leading a campaign against the conservative talk show host, hoping to convince the NFL that Limbaugh is the wrong man for the job.

In case you forgot, Limbaugh quietly left ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown in 2003 because he stated on-air that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was "overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed."

Is this the kind of guy who should own a football team?????

We think not!

    If he has the money and a passion for sports he should go for it!



  2. 2

    He should buy the Lions, they're acclimated to delusional management.



  3. 3

    This story is like a week old you fucking idiot!



  4. 4

    Rush is the man! He is self made and he only believes in freedom. He is passionate about football, and he would be an outstanding owner. Best of luck Rush!!!



  5. 5

    This guy is the biggest fucking retard imbecile on the face of the Earth. I hope nobody negotiates with this idiot. Talk about a bigot, liar and moron….this guy has cornered the market on all 3!



  6. 6

    Rush is so lame. He acts like he is king of the world…but he is on AM radio for goodness sakes! AM RADIO! Who listens to AM radio? He might be the biggest fish in that pond, but it is a veeeeeeery tiiiiiiiiiny pond. He was a racist when he was on ESPN, and he is still a racist today.



  7. 7

    I am appalled that anyone would think they are entitled to tell someone they do not deserved to buy an NFL team. Jesse Jackson, Sheila Jackson Lee, and Al Sharpton (among other racists) have no right. I don't care if Limbaugh is the racist person in the universe, no one has the right to impede on his purchase of an NFL team. So ridiculous.



  8. 8

    Now that he spoke out about what a douche-nozzle you are, you will start bringing out everything about him and twisting it into your typical Perez-bullshit. I am so not looking forward to two months of constant posts about this guy.



  9. 9

    He is not racist at all. People are lying about his comments or taking them out of context. He may criticize people who happen to be black but he also criticizes people who happen to be white. Martin Luther King Jr dreamed of a day when people could be judged on character and not by the color of their skins. He did not dream of a day where individual black people could not be judged at all.



  10. 10

    Well said,LadyGuinivere Rush is the man! He is self made and he only believes in freedom. He is passionate about football, and he would be an outstanding owner. Best of luck Rush!!!



  11. 11

    He now wants to buy a football team after all the mean and cruel things he has said about minorities and just people in general. Hes got some nerve. He is a hypocrite and Karma is a bitch and Its coming back to him!~!!!!!!!



  12. 12

    Yeah - OLD STORY. Not interesting to anyone. You are just scraping for something to rag on him about, Mary



  13. 13

    Right on I hope Rush gets to buy them without "GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION"which seems to be the story of the day, week, month, year, Its Not Obama's czars jobs to regulate the NFL!!!!!! aren't you people tire of all the government yet?



  14. 14

    this doesn't make any sense. rush can do as he pleases. the only people who say that he is a bigot are close-minded liberals. the comment about mcnabb is true, he was highly publicized because he a black quarterback. there are two or three in the whole league, and he is good. so why not talk about a black man, it only elevates their position and gives them attention where it has been lacking for centuries. why dont all these people listen to his show, oh wait you dont you go off of others opinions. so sad..



  15. 15

    Perez,
    You're slacking. This story has been around awhile.



  16. 16

    It is the same thing everytime with these race baiting bigots like al sharpton, jessie jackson and shelia lee. The haves and have nots. Unless they receive some sort of bribe or handout there will always be those who are against something. McNabb was/is overrated. He sucks. Perez should stick to the only balls he knows about…and stay out of football.



  17. 17

    Actually, just like Obama, McNabb back in his hayday was overrated and very hyped up by the the media (and unlike Obama is proving to be, has lived up to the hype). What he said about McNabb isn't necessarily bad and shouldn't prevent him from purchasing the team. I really don't see how Rush is a hypercrit for wanting to buy a football team… and yes, he is on AM radio, but he still has one of the highest ratings in all of radio. Congress should really focus on real issues and stop worrying about who wants to buy what team.

    This story is so old it is already in a nursing home. Owning an NFL team is a privilege and not a right. Having enough cash (with a partner) is not reason enough to be able to buy a team. NFL ownership is more like a private club than a democracy. He would have to win approval. Perez I am not sure it is fair to characterize "Members of the NFL" as liberal or Democrats (two distinctly different things BTW). They are resisting Rush due to past racist comments. One in particular was comparing two teams/lines of NFL players facing off as reminding him of the crips and bloods. I personally can never forgive him for saying Micheal J. Fox exaggerated his Parkinson's symptoms by faking shaking etc. before Congress. Keep up the radio show but let go of that NFL dream Rush



  19. 19

    Why cant he own a team?? Idiots, if he has the money he should own the fking team. Who's the real racist here, i think the morons that are trying to keep him out. Thats who> Go Rush Go. I f you want aracist out of the NFL, fire AL Davis



  20. 20

    what a fukwad. I hope he gets hit by a truck on his way to a meeting with the NFL. I guess this racist asshole think black people aren't good enough…but they're good enough to make his fat, ugly, racist, ass money. I guess having an NFL team is one way to OWN a bunch of black men. asshole.



  21. 21

    Mario keep your noses out of sports, you barely know anything about entertainment. It's all about the $$ if you don't want to play for him don't. That's if you even consider the Rams a football team. Plus other than saying that the media wanted McNabb to suceed, all the supposed quotes are fabricated. As Rush said play the recordings or show the transcript!! He's going for apologies and $$$ in his up comeing law suits



  22. 22

    I personally love Rush. He is not a racist, he is simply an American who says what he thinks. HELLO…freedom of speech, which if we didn't have this site would cease to exist.



  23. 23

    Chandler sya "who listens to AM radio",,,, oh i dunno, ummmm about 30 million people a day. You fktard. There is NO BIGGER RACIST than Obama and that silverback wife of his



  24. 24

    He is a douchebag, and THAT is the funniest picture I have seen in a long time.



  25. 25

    The only capacity he could serve in the NFL is as a tackling dummy!



  26. 26

    Pills Limbaugh is a big fat cun*t.



  27. 27

    Oh and by the way AP076, the NFL does look like 2 fking gangs. Rush just says what we all think but we dont have the forum to say it. NFL NBA what a bunch of thugs!!!!!



  28. 28

    he didnt say the n-word he stated an opinioun,some poeople are just way too sensitive about bullshit !

  29. LEAH. says – reply to this


    29

    wtf? if he wants to buy it and they want to sell it to him, that's all that matters! who is sheila jackson lee to be sticking her nose in it? Yep, now that he said something bad about you you're just going to try and dig crap up on him, regardless of how old and uninteresting it is.



  30. 30

    Re: Lucky Lucy – Horsecrap. Go to Media Matters' website and see the long list of racially insensitive remarks he's made over the years. They've compiled a boatload of them. He's the second coming of Marge Schott, and the NFL can see this.



  31. 31

    …Let's ask Daddy Government. He can tell us what's right and wrong– he can tell that silly, private citizen that he can't buy that team because of his opinions… Jeez, what has this world come to????? If the guy has enough money, assuming that a share of the team is for sale, he has a right to buy it– no ifs, ands, or buts about it.

    Not that it's at all related to the legalities of private citizens purchasing property (yes, a footballl team counts as property), but McNabb is definitely overrated. He was somewhat impressive a couple years into his role as a quarterback, and he's been useless for quite a few years now. His butt-buddy connection with Reid has ruined the team, and now all the Eagles are is hype. I don't think McNabb is bad because he's black, but I do think it's possible that there was some reverse-discrimination going on. We've had many non-Black second-and-third string quarterbacks play that really are great, but never ever get more than a couple chances to play. What's more likely, though, is that Reid loves McNabb's butthole and, thus, can't get rid of the failing quarterback.



  32. 32

    it will be the first time an owner has to take a piss test instead of the players.



  33. 33

    Sheila Jackson Lee?!?!?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    She is one of the biggest retards on the planet and a complete embarrassment of an elected official. She's the one who took a cell phone call during a town hall meeting because she's so f*ing clueless she had no idea how to answer the citizens' questions.
    And there's nothing wrong with Rush's comment about the media wanting to see Donovan McNabb succeed because he's a black QB. The media fawned all over Obama and failed to ask him any tough questions during his campaign because they wanted to see a completely inexperienced black man (well, half black man) succeed in his bid to be president.



  34. 34

    Awe Rush, that's not what they meant when they asked you to help the African American Community…..sheesh!



  35. 35

    YOUR MONEY DOES NOT SPOIL JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN BE AN ASSHOLE. IF HE CAN AFFORD IT, GO FOR IT. BESIDES, HE AGREES WITH THE REST OF CIVILIZED SOCIETY THAT MICHAEL VIC SHOULD BE PUT TO REST.



  36. 36

    RUSH LIMBAUGH = ABONINATION
    .
    Hey maybe it's Buck?



  37. 37

    I thought America was the land of opportunity and freedom. Since when does one's personal views restrict them from owning a football team? That would be like shutting this site down because people don't agree with your agendas douchebag. Or does personal freedoms only count when it supports your own cause? And you're way late on this story, you suck.



  38. 38

    Re: hater141414 – You call other people racist while calling Mrs. Obama a "silverback"? You just showed your hand, fool. You are clearly even more of a racist than Rush is! And not to mention your "30 million" number is WAAAAY off. It is more like 2 million per day.



  39. 39

    if you dont think this fat peice of clogged artery is a complete racist you would be the delusional one

    i dont think they could stop him but i would be mad to if i had to work for this fat disgusting fuck i hope the bitch overdose

    It's not goign to happen, you know why, because there will be an uprise. Yet, i'm interested in seeing how the black players who make up most of the league acccept being on his team. you think there is racial outpouring now, Rush will ruin Football. He doesn't want to own a team, he is trying to push bottons as normal. You idiots who think otherwise, are just freaking idiots. I would call them slaves. I say go for it Rush, it's time black men did something better with their lives.



  46. 46

    Rush is a bigot and people try to make excuse on why he's not. Too many racial oops for him not to be. Fvck his money he divides instead of strengthen.

    Rush has a thing for deep seated sexual attraction to black guys. t’s called NegrophileRush, publically heterosexual has been eerily focused on black men for a long time. I mean, I know racism, but can’t he throw some women in his “racial” rants every once in awhile?

    In 2003, Limbaugh worked briefly on ESPN's NFL pregame show. He resigned after saying Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb(notes) was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed. He has also compared the NFL to a gang of crips and bloods without the guns. I can imagine Rush jacking off his notes for the next to relive that deep seated frustration in his soul.

    The ones who love you the most generally try to hate you the most. And everybody knows that Lynching was just a frustrated homosexual act.

    When Barack Obama came into office Rush lost weight. He suddenly needed to make himself pretty. When asked by a MSNB reporter if he would go have a beer with the President, he couldn’t say yes quicker. But he needed to backtrack. He said the President had a really nice voice. Aww, I wonder what he does late at night cracked out on pain killers listening to the 2009 President Inauguration speech.

    Now he wants to own a football team. He has taken his fantasy to an entire different level. I can imagine when he made that decision watching Snoop Dogg in “Airplane.”

    Re: ktheg8 – really? You don't know much about football then. Mcnabb went to the championship 4 times in a row & a Superbowl. He has broken a lot of records. Do you watch other games in the nfl or just your team? Just LAST YEAR he took philly to the championship game. Granted he hasn't won the big one but you obviously don't know how hard that is to achieve. His stats speak for themselves. Reggie bush was overrated for a while if you want to get into overrated players. Please name these good third string quarterbacks you speak of lol there is a reason they are 3rd string. I can't stand people who act like they know all about sports when they don't know a thing. Study up on espn or something then come back with a legitimate argument.

    I feel like there is no room to be a racist in a sport that has a diverse lineup. I feel just like if he would have said something homophobic they wouldn't let that gO. I feel it is 2009 and it is time to boarden our way of thinking. I'm sure if he was able to buy the team some of the team players and other teams would have a huge problem with this.

    Re: LCFB

    I don't hate the government, and I never said I did. Just because I'm against big government doesn't make me an anarchist. And you're insult means nothing to me– besides the fact that you stereotyped me, which clearly marks you as ignorant and thus baseless for any statement–if my beliefs warrant my banishment, then let's just burn the Constitution right now, because that's what I believe in.

    Ahhhh… I love someone who actually has a good counter argument!!! You have no idea how awesome that is. Thank you. I'd like it without insults, because I think we're both intelligent enough to hold our own without it, but no big
    Well, I was an Eagles fan for 22 years until the beginning of last year's season. I cried when we lost the Superbowl– I didn't always dislike McNabb. And I agree with you– as a quarterback, McNabb has won a lot of championships and games. However, time after time, we've lost at the last second… we've started games playing AMAZINGLY only to lose complete control by the end… and, of course, the lovely sacks that always seem to pop up. One thing that always stuck with me was how McNabb ran such great plays in the beginning– even doing the Hail Mary, all the way– and how awesome he was then. McNabb never runs anymore– it seems after being injured so many times, he's afraid to bite the bullet and go after the goal like he used to be able to. McNabb is overrated because he takes us to the championship and leaves us at the gate.
    As for the other quarterbacks, my favorite is probably Koy Detmer. There is also AJ Feeley and Jeff Garcia. But let me be clear– these guys aren't even close to McNabb, talent-wise. If McNabb gave a damn and tried, he'd be a great player… but he doesn't, and that's the problem.



  56. 56

    sheila is effin stupid! god damn! so what if rush wants to buy the rams… damn people this country is messed up worry about that not about rush wanting to buy the rams you effin idiots

  60. 60

    and when does partial ownership in a sports team become political??? oh only when the dripping, uber liberals bitch and moan and make it so.
    so before they throw up the race card, they better take a deeper look into comments made by black sportscasters about black sports players.



  61. 61

    Seriously, the NFL is full of gangsters and felons - and they don't want Rush? His money is green and the statement that got him fired was simply speaking truth to power - speaking something everyone knew but didn't have the balls to say. We'll see how many overpaid babies walk away from the millions if Rush buys the team…..



  62. 62

    Umm we think YES gay boy. Rush Limbaugh is fantastic and should own any team he wants. It is true that the media only pushed McNabb because they wanted a black quarterback to do well. This is true. The sports media is nothing more then left wing liberals who do nothing but hate. If it's ok for the big eared idiot in the White House to talk his crap against White people and be president it's ok for Rush to own any team he wants. Re: piunti64

    This just in from C N N. Rush has been dropped from the ownership group that is bidding to buy the Rams. His involvement "has become a distraction and complication in their bid". I guess freedom of speech when used as hate speech can come back to bite you in your fat ass, Rush.

    …fat fuck



  67. 67

    I used to listen to his show and while I stopped because it got redundant and boring I never heard him say anything racist. If he has the money to buy a team it would be unfair to say he can't because of his political leanings. Its funny but there is no group more intolerant of other peoples beliefs then the left.



  68. 68

    I, Borg



  69. 69

    The Rams already suck they don't need his big mouth making things any worse than they already are.



  70. 70

    If he has the money, he has every right to buy a team. Who cares about football anyhow. It is nothing but a mindless and violent sport.



  71. 71

    I love how they say Rush will give the NFL a bad image….Um, hello NFL…..I have two words for you…….Michael Vick!!!!!



  72. 72

    Please explain the NFL's logic…….Rush, bad…….Michael Vick, good? Um….Okay?



  73. 73

    First of all I live in St. Louis and I have been hearing about this for about two weeks. You are really late on the posts…. and just because he dissed a black quarter back or dislikes obama doesnt make him a racist. As a St. Louisan, I hate to see the rams sucking like they have for the past years and I think he could really do a good job in jump starting them back to victory. You are only bashing him because he said a few "mean" but true things about you. go cry to your mom perez



  74. 74

    No way should the league give him the green light.
    There are few things I hold sacred, but the NFL is one of them.
    Without going into details, this would seriously be bad for the league.
    The NFL won't allow it, I don't think we have anything to worry about. I hope.
    I looooove the NFL. Rush, stick to what your know- bashing liberals (which I'm all for), and leave one of my favorite things on this planet alone.



  75. 75

    HAHA YES! T-M-Z just reported he's out. It's official-
    "Ever since word got out that the conservative mouthpiece was interested in the team, several people lashed out against it — including the owner of the Indianapolis Colts, the head of the NFL Player's Association and even Al Sharpton."
    *
    HELL YEAH, the Player's Association didn't disappoint. Watch Sharpton try to take credit, oh well, who cares, LONG LIVE THE NFL



  76. 76

    He's such an ugly fat fuck. I hope somebody shoves a football through his shit-caked asshole.



  77. 77

    This guy….aka….jabba the hut…… is nothing but a fat, homophobic, racist drug addict who is worshiped by the white trash losers of this country. Maybe instead of buying a team, he should run some laps around a stadium!



  78. 78

    CNN is wrong, the statements that they are claiming that Rush made on air, are false. And this supposed news network refuses to show any type of proof that Rush ever made the statements! That is not news that is defemation! I hope he sues the pants off of CNN, they deserve it!

    Many NFL players are thugs and gangstas and are "above the law" if they're ever charged with anything. Since when is the NFL political? Rush is a great American who daily speaks out to 20 million listeners about our American personal freedoms and liberties, which liberal Democrats are taking away.



  82. 82

    WHAT COUNTRY IS THIS? HIS COMMENTS WEREN'T RACIAL HE WAS STATING A FACT…..MAYBE HE SHOULD PEE ON A 13 YEAR OLD LIKE R. KELLY ….SO MANY LOSERS…SO LITTLE TIME

    It's his business what he does and buys.



  84. 84

    Why doesn't Rush & his followers leave the United Sates of America????

    Buy an island & live you shit!!



  85. 85

    Anyone that says Rush is a racist doesn't actually listen to his show…they only listen to the snippits that the liberal media takes out of context! Just because he doesn't have the same point of view as a majority of African Americans and calls people out on their bullshit regardless of the color of their skin DOESN't make him racist!



  86. 86

    As Judy Tenuta once said, somebody should hollow Rush out and use his immense body for a homeless shelter. That way he would have a purpose.
