    I'll respond to YOU, since YOU'RE actually having a conversation

    In this case can you honestly say its "No one but Limbuagh's" fault that he isn't part of the group trying to own the team now?

    In today's environment, I see the information coming out as inevitable. Further, the information could have come out about almost any one else and it would not have mattered. So yeah, the reason Limbaugh was a problem was because of the things Limbaugh says, which he is entirely responsible for.

    To put it another way, if it was me as a part of the bid instead of Rush, there would be no controversy, simply because I have not made a career being controversial. The difference between us is why he is being dropped from the group, and that difference is his choice.

    I read Limbaugh's account of it, and I'm still mystified. They thought it would create a PR nightmare, but wanted to go along with it anyway. Limbaugh claims he continued to ask about their support, and they were fine with it still. Then finally, they want him to pull himself out (Limbaugh says no, you have to remove me yourself), due to the controversy.

    How could they not see this coming? Furthermore, Limbaugh is still trying to garner sympathy about it, which is what a good political radio host would do, but honestly, if you are a controversial person in politics (or in any other field), a lot of your new ventures in arenas not entirely political (or in whatever field it is you are involved) will make you take a lot of heat-so I do not have sympathy for him.

    But he's not in a new venture he has been involved with the Pro Sport stuff since his early days in Radio.

    Beside the NFL really doesn't have any grounds to stand on here when they start throwing around the so-called image problem.

    Just go and read this website,

    Its not his venture in to sports that is new. It is this new venture into sports after firmly establishing himself as a hate monger where the problems came into play.

    I find it very inspiring to know that even today that money doesn't always win out over ethics.

    What's most amusing at this point is Limbaugh's over the top self-pity. It would be nice to see Limbaugh be a man for once in his pathetic life and actually take responsibility for the things he's said, but I won't count on that happening.

    What things would those be? So far, no one has been able to prove any of these accusations to be true. What about th responsibility of those persons to back up their public statements?

    This view is perhaps the most succint I have seen from the non-dittohead perspective ~
