Rush Limbaugh Vs. The NFL

i was eating my lunch today and happened to catch a piece of Hardball wit Chris Matthews. today they were talking about Rush Limbaugh becoming a silent (HA!) partner with the St. Louis Rams. that would be a lot of money that he is putting into a team that, quite honestly, sucks. im attaching the segment here. give me your opinion on the matter. is it a good idea? why? why not?

I think this is a non issue. Sure, Rush has a lousy reputation regarding his comments on Donovan McNabb and other issues he's crapped on. He's a loud-mouth and a far-right conservative. But you can look up and down the list of owners of the the NFL and I would guess they have just as many behavior traits that some of us find difficult to swallow. Rush just has a bigger microphone and doesn't know when to shut his trap.

I don't think owning an NFL team is about political viewpoints. It's about winning and making money (not necessarily in that order).

Rush has proven to be a good businessman. I don't know what kind of NFL owner he'd be. It's a business that looks at the bottom line just as much as a radio network or a fruit stand.

Steven (Stephen?) Smith wants the Black players to stand up and make a statement if Rush buys the team. That's not going to happen. I don't think players are as connected to their owners as much as we think.

Rush is trying to buy 60 percent of the team. I don't know how much that kind of ownership will allow him to control the day-to-day operations of that team.

I say let him get his share and see what happens. This is turning into a big witch hunt. We've got better things to spend our time with. Giving Rush more press is just a bad idea.

i agree that giving rush more press isnt a good thing. but i see where some league reps would be iffy about the situation...especially roger goodell.

you dont want a know protagonist diverting attention away from the product of the game.

i think that this story will not be going away anytime soon.
