    What was that he said about quarterback?


    And many of the games do look like crips vs bloods.

His comment was that McNabb was overrated because people wanted to see a black quaterback excel. I mean, is any criticism of black people considered racist? I think the real racists in this story are Shartpon and Jackson.

    Limbaugh shouldn't lose this bid because some people construe his statements as racist. He should be judged by the merits the NFL puts forward for bids on team ownership and nothing more. Some people just want to punish the guy for who he is.
    He sure did say that he wasn't good! I know, I remember it well. He said (though I paraphrase) that he was highly overrated an that he only got publicity because of his colour. Limbaugh deserved to get fired from that job.

    Here's the video:

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    YouTube - Rush Limbaugh 2003 Comments on Donovan McNabb



    He was commenting on what he percieved as racism of the NFL, he made no comment that his blackness made him no good.

Doubly so when coming from the same people that said how Mike Vick has a RIGHT to play in the NFL again regardless of potential impact it would have on the leagues image.

    Also, lets be fair if you're going to throw out quotes and give context or full things. Rush was not simply criticizing McNabb. He was stating that he was overrated due to a media who desired to have a black quarterback hoisted up as one of the best in the league. At the time, McNabb was generally overrated, if for no other reason than his inability to stay on the field healthy ever. Additionally, go back and watch the entire coverage leading up to the Superbowl with the Colts and the Bears and tell me there's not an over arching sense in the media of needing to push iconic african american figures in the sport. If I didn't know better I'd have figured Tony Dungy's team won the super bowl becasue of the civil rights movement rather than the fact that Dungy is a great coach. Controversial comment? Yes. Inappropriate? Based on what they wanted him on the show for, probably. Racist and off base comment? No, not racist, and a legitiamte argument to what he was saying could definitely be made.

    The "Bloods and Crips" one I'd need to go back and look at, but if my memory serves me of the last time this came up it was a tongue in cheek sarcastic (in Limbaugh's way) comment responding to a story put out that there were a great number of cases of gang signs and colors being brandished on the football field. But that latter part is never actually brought up, because then it may give a bit of context and insight into him possibly joking around a bit rather than just sounding like he's going "black men hitting each other...oh, I know, gangs, bloods and crips".
    I make no claims regarding what he said, only reporting what I heard from a few players this weekend. Far as I am concerned, it's a business, and unless Rush would be bad for business, if he has the best bid, he should get the team.

    Re: Sharpton, Jackson Attack Limbaugh's Rams Bid

    I can't view youtube at work.

    Does he say Donovan is very overrated, or does he say he's not very good?

    Cause there was a time people were making him out to be a top 3 QB in the league and I'd definitely agree with the overrated label then

    Sorry to say this, I don't think he's been that good from the get-go," Limbaugh said. "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. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

    Yes, that's right. And he was a dumbass to say it. McNabb got accolades because of his own merit, not because of his colour. Overrated??? No freakin way. Look at what he had accomplished before those comments.

    He starts off by saying, "I don't think he's been that good from the get-go."

    What a moron.

    Rush was right about Donovan McNabb. - By Allen Barra - Slate Magazine





    Also, I will look for the article, but later on, McNabb, actually inadvertantly agrees with Rush.
