Dave Checketts did the right thing by getting conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh out of his group who is planning to purchase the St. Louis Rams which was announced on Wednesday.

Kudos also go out to the NFL and NFLPA's brass in
Let's face it, had this group been successful in purchasing the Rams or any NFL team for that matter, I think it would have set the standard of racial advancement backwards by about a half a century.

I wonder which African-American players (or any other minority) would want to play for the Rams? Especially not a black quarterback, considering the statement that Limbaugh made on ESPN's weekly nationally live televised NFL pregame show with regards to black quarterbacks back in 2003.

He was forced to resign from ESPN after making this statement regarding Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb: "I think what we have had here a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous to see that a black quarterback do well."

I have to admit it, I was floored at home when I actually heard Limbaugh make that statement on live television.

It would definitely hurt the Rams with their minority fan base in low attendance and merchandise sales. I would like to know how the Rooney Rule would work out in St. Louis - that should be very interesting.

According to radio transcripts posted on Limbaugh's website from 2007, he said: "The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."

With that being said, for Limbaugh to blame both the media and the Obama Administration for his misfourtunes is beyond laughable.

But yet, he is still a fan of the NFL.......really? Just as noted ESPN analyst Tom Jackson would say, COME ON, MAN!!!!
