    Sharpton, Jackson Attack Limbaugh's Rams Bid

    Sharpton, Jackson Attack Limbaugh's Rams Bid - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com

    The Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson attacked the bid by Rush Limbaugh to buy the St. Louis Rams on Monday, saying the conservative radio host's track record on race should exclude him from owning an NFL team.
    Anyone else feel this is just another case of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson making a stir just to get more publicity?

    Wow...now I want Rush's team to win the bid. Sharpton and Jackson are amongst the most racist bastards out there.

    Limbaugh is obviously a racist.

    It's not just them, as alot of NFL players are pissed at some of his comments(one quarterback only got the job because he was black, and NFL games look like "the Crips vs the Bloods"), but it is still much ado about nothing. If Rush has the money and makes the best bid, why shouldn't he own a football team?

    It's highly likely that Rush's application is going too be denied because of his racist statements and it should be. But this is only going to stoke his fire and he is going to use it as ammo because he was picked on by the mean ol black establishment and that is what he will scream to his wacko base.

    I heard about this story yesterday. I'm not fond of Rush, but looking at all the other obnoxious NFL owners, he would fit right in. I don't like this type of public vendetta. This should be a free and open marketplace, even for big-mouth radio personalities.

    What racist comment? The McNabb thing was true at the time. People were talking all about that. He didn't say McNabb wasn't good, or didn't deserve to be in the NFL, or that he got his position because of his race. 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.

    I for one wouldn't take my kid or any other kid to see a game that is being played by a team that is owned by a loudmouthed racist.
