    I don't know, nor do I really care. Olbermann is a giant blow hard, with very little intelligence. But this article I think exposes the hypocrisy at play here.

    You don't know huh?

    That's interesting.

    What's really funny about your link is that Jeff Poor's ADD kicked in and his summary paragraph had nothing to do with the title of his little blog.

    As far as I know Olberman does commentary for NBC and appears as a regular guest on the Dan Patrick show. The question would be if the NFL has any say on who NBC can or cannot use to do commentary for their games.

    What? You mean that Olbermann doesn't own a team and hasn't made racial remarks about the league?

    This isn't going to sit well.

    Look guys it's truth time !!! Limbaugh was not dumped because he is a supposed conservative he was bumped because he is and acts and says things as an A-hole !!! The crap that he said is percieved as racist. If it isn't then too bad it appaears racist. If Limbaugh cannot control himself and he brings crap down on hmself and the people he is associated with then he is poison for football.

    Limbaugh needs to realize that real life is not the same as a bullcrap radio talk show.

    That's it? Really? The only thing you seem to be able to come up with in rebuttal to the article is criticism on writing style? Ouch, that is tough.....

    Yep, true enough, but isn't ESPN a part of a network as well? That's right it is ABC, and although it is a different network, and presumably different standards when it comes to whom they will put on air in a logo'd jacket, I seem to recall that after the flap where Limbaugh told the truth about McNabb on air that pressure was brought to bear from the NFL on the network to oust him.

    Now NBC is certainly a different entity altogether, thats for sure. But, if you are saying that it is ok for someone as vile, and divisive as Keith Olbermann to rant endlessly on air to NFL's audiences, and have other owners out there in professional sports that have made far worse examples than has Limbaugh, then hypocrisy springs to mind.

    How about that girl from the Black eyed Peas that now owns part of the Dolphins? I guess she is ok because she shares a common view with the NFL? Really?

    pfft!

    Really? Does the NFL consult you for your opinion of people before allowing them to be a minority owner of a team? I suspect not.


    The crap that he said is percieved as racist. If it isn't then too bad it appaears racist.

    How so? That the NFL at the time was desirous of McNabb, one of the first black quarterbacks, be viewed as successful for the image appearance, over true talent? How's that racist?


    If Limbaugh cannot control himself and he brings crap down on hmself and the people he is associated with then he is poison for football.

    Who is Limbaugh associated with that poisons Football?


    Limbaugh needs to realize that real life is not the same as a bullcrap radio talk show.

    Your hatred for Limbaugh should be no yardstick as to what the man is able to purchase.

    There were 31 black QBs before McNabb in the NFL.
