Some players have already stated publicly that they would refuse to play for a team in which Rush was a shareholder. Do the players have a right to decide who can own a team?
No, they are to be entertainers, that is the extent of their power!
Here's the deal: If you don't want someone specific to buy your team, don't put it up for sale. The players don't have a right as to who owns the team...They can however gripe about it and pull a Braylon Edwards or a Jeremy Shockey or a host of others until they get traded. But only marquee players can do this. The little guys would be smart to just keep their mouths shut, so long as they get paid.
No, but they can go play somewhere else or not at all. That would be a pretty stupid reason to walk away from a pro contract and I don't think any one of them would actually do so.
The Rams are awful, Rush Limbaugh is awful... it seems like a perfect match. But I think the players totally have the right to refuse to play for a Rush Limbaugh team. Nobody can force Ben Folds to play somewhere he doesn't want to... same with football players.
What do we care what bunch of NFL playing whiners got to say. I've heard enough whiners from pro-players to last a lifetime. I wish the rest of the planet got away with as much lame excuses as they do! They play football for a living...go out run the ball...catch the ball...drive it down the field...if you get hurt get back up again...Geez...what a bunch of whiners...look at how much they get paid...for crying pete's sake? What does it matter who they play for...I hope he buys them and sends the whiners packing!
Oh, God, please let him. It would be a scream. I'm sure he wouldn't lower himself to having a black quarterback.
....I was gonna offer my input but after this guy ^^^ I'll refrain.
Guess they could change the Hank Williams song to fit the new name of the Rams.
"Are you Ready for Some Limbaugh?"
I hope he buys them. Rams, you should have stayed in LA. now you're going to be owned by Limbaugh. LOL.
Why should a bunch of players get upset if Limbaugh buys the Rams? It's stupid to politicize everything.
Oh they say they will, but they'll still go wherever the money tree grows higher!
Looks like Rush will have to park his millions elsewhere
If the NFL doesn't, then they look closely at the life and past flaws of the other owners.
Rush is an entertainer which is exactly what fotball players are. At least Rush won't be speaking at the football games.
They need to look at the racist past of Al Sharpton, his "words" have actually resulted in someone dying!
Does it matter? He is the one leading the charge against Limbaugh, so why not check his racist words? Oh yeah, you don't care about liberals that stoke racism, my bad!
I'm sure he could be at least as successful as Marge Schott with at least 40% less blatant bigotry.
You could have just said "none"
edit: or tossed out some CFL team. no one's ever heard of them so they'd totally believe you.
It's up to the rest of the owners as far as letting Limbaugh be an owner. If they feel he will cost them money they won't approve him. The owners aren't going listen to anybody but themselves.
He already knows most of the other owners now. How many people work for a company that has a CEO or owner that they disagree with? They will play for whoever owns the team. It a way to keep the Rams in St.Louis, otherwise they are going to move most likely.

Should Rush Limbaugh be allowed to purchase the St. Louis Rams knowing that 66% of NFL players are African American and has made several racist comments directed towards this race?

All opinions respected. Who would win a debate between Obama and Limbaugh?

Limbaugh has gone too far with his latest attack on Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy: ""Before it's all over, it'll be called the Ted Kennedy Memorial Health Care bill". THIS IS A PERSONAL ATTACK. Rush, it's OK to disagree with someone's ideas, but this statement makes it sound like...

My dad listens to this clown only to mock him and I happen to catch this babbling idiot tell his listeners that he would pack up and move to Costa Rica (a country that has universal health care) if the Health Care Bill passed. Well it passed (although I agree that it needs some revisions and...
