I don't think anyone was "protesting". More so talking about how ridiculous it is. I'm no fan of Republicans but I can careless if Rush bought a football team so long as it ain't the Skins. Let him have fun driving it into the ground.

Rush will never change, he is stuck in his own fat idiotic extremely right winged thinking. What I am shocked and find disturbing is the fact he has made enough money over the years to actually make a serious run to buying an NFL team. Seriously, that many people in America tune into him and make him this rich. Maybe he made a lot of money in stocks or something, if not I am disappointed because he the troll under the bridge to a unified future.

NO he got a 400 million dollar contract!! Guess there are a lot of racist idiotic biggots in the world.

Yeah and african americans aren't the only ones that commit crimes in the NFL. You would be amazed if you only knew. Just because they report on the more popular players than tend to be black. Doesn't mean that there aren't players of other races doing drugs, selling drugs, and beating their wives. The media loves to tear down african american players. Some of them deserve to be punished but they are often made an example of.

Was Al Sharpton trying to buy a team? Some people ae so racist and retarded (and dont even know it). A political affiliation should not be treated like your rooting for a sports team that has no affect on your life. This country was f'd before Obama took it over. You are probably one of the idiots that voted for Bush again after he stole the first election. You probably are a closet racist. Where have you been the past 8 yrs. I am gald the owners stood up and cancelled Rush. Its refreshing to see that people stand up for something besides making money. Unless they stood up because this could affect their money. Either way. Bye Rush. You fat pill-popping racist, gyrating bowl of rancid jelly!! Karma is a byotch!!

I don't think firstdown said anything about african-american or non african-american.

I'm glad that Rush is not part of the bidding team anymore. I suspect it's for reasons beyond his comments though

Re: Sources: Checketts to drop Limbaugh

Rush is the man...have any of you bashing him, actually listened to him? He is far from racist...

Have any of you actually heard him ever say anything racist or are you just trusting what you hear from the media?

Why did you assume he was talking about black players?

Re: Sources: Checketts to drop Limbaugh

you guys should actually listen to rush, instead of just listening to the comments the media takes out of context.

No, you're right. I was thinking to myself that black players came to mind when I read, "involved in murders." I think it was implied, though it wasn't explicitly stated.

No biggie, I don't think first meant anything by it.

I have no problem with Rush owning an NFL team. That's his prerogative. But I also think that if a person has a perception of being racist, fair or not, chances are they have a history of saying or doing things that may warrant that label.

I will admit though there is a fine line between being inflamatory and being racist.

It's wise if they want their bid to be taken seriously, that's all I'm saying.
