My biggest problem is that he cries out that Americans need more responsibility for their lives... Yet he blames everyone BUT himself for this... Give me a break.

I cannot say I'm surprised the NFL doesnt want him. Best case scenario about Rush -shes a shameless profiteer he exploits people fears (closet racism) and racial tensions with his relentless ad hominem attacks on black people. Worse Case Scenario, -he's a Klansman without the clown suit.

To give you all some prespective, when Marge Schott owned the Cincinatti Reds she literally self-destructed her own team with her racist comments and abrasive personality, now couple that with a league where 67% of the players in the NFL are black.

How does Rush Limbaugh expect his players to play well for him when he refers to NFL games as I quote: "a gang fight between the Bloods and Crip -without weapons". Thats an insult not only against black football players but against the NFL as well.

The NFL is MUCH better without him.

It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy .....

The NFL didn't need Mr. Windbag giving the players or owners a
[
bad name].

You know whats Funny, Limbaugh is still whining on the radio that he was excluded because of his conservative views.

But heres the thing, NFL ownership is a VERY exclusive club. Most of the owners are all White, very rich, and very politically conservative. Exactly the same cloth that Rush is cut from. So Rush's "I'm a victim" attitude are as per usual, baseless.

He was excluded because he would have brought nothing to the NFL but poor publicity and bad business. As his last stint as ESPN commentator proved, he is a shameless race-baiter who knows even less than I do about Football.

Then again, I would have loved to seen the reaction of the RAMS when he told them as owner to "take the bone out of their nose" or "the NFL resembles a gang fight between the Bloods and the Crips". They would have used his fat rear-end as a tackling dummy.

I'm not sure Rush doesn't have a right to be angry. In the last five years the NFL has reinstated a convicted felon (Vick) an accessory to murder (Ray Lewis) countless drug addicts (too many to list) but because he made 4-5 "off - color" comments, he can't play in their sandbox?? The NFL is going soft and will be old hat in the next 10-15 years if they don't change their ways. Almost all contact is gone from the sport (no hitting QB'S ever, don't hit a reciever until he tells you he's ready for it, etc.) and the excitement from year to year is dwindling. Then again I'm not a business Guru, I'm just some schmuck with an internet connection, what do I know?

Rush's comments have been far worse than off color and far too many than just a few.

A few listed here:
http://newsone.com/obama/top-10-racist-limbaugh-quotes/

Now when you figure that 67% of the NFL players are black, not to mention having both black AND liberal NFL fans (i.e customers) allowing a nasty individual like Rush into the NFL seems like a very unwise decision. The lesson of the day is that words can hurt, and as Rush found out his words had consequences.

The players (even many white players) didn't want him, many had said that they refused to play either for or against the RAMS if Rush was an owner.
The fans didn't want him (there was already talk of a NFL boycott), and remembering his short-lived stint on ESPN many in the NFL management didn't want him either. The players, the fans, and the management were against him.

So the other NFL owners saw this pretty clearly. Rush Limbaugh brings NOTHING to the NFL but problems they didnt have and didn't need. One Marge Schott was enough.

The TRULY frightening thing is, Nina, that there are a LOT of Republicans who agree with him... Republicans who listen to his show and say "YEAH!" to everything that spills out of that OxyContin abusing, arrogant, racist mouth.

People listen to Rush because he tells them exactly what they want to believe whether or not its actually true or not (and it usually isnt true, because the truth doesnt help Rush's ratings). The other reason they listen to Rush is because Limbaugh says the outrageous things that they are too cowardly to admit on their own.

Our constitution allows Rush to air his hateful views in Public, but there is nothing that requires us to be forced to listen to him while watching the NFL.

Rush won't be around forever. His Audience is White, Male, sub/rural, over 50 years old. Its 13 Million Listens, which while alot, is peanuts compared to the 300 Million population. Moreover, he is extremely unpopular outside of this demographic which is why he rarely comes out of his fortified mansion in Florida.
