BOSTON (AP) - Rush Limbaugh's bid to buy the St. Louis Rams ran into opposition within the NFL on Tuesday. Colts owner Jim Irsay vowed to vote against him, and commissioner Roger Goodell said the conservative commentator's "divisive" comments would not be tolerated from any NFL insider.
"I, myself, couldn't even consider voting for him," Irsay said at an owners meetings. "When there are comments that have been made that are inappropriate, incendiary and insensitive ... our words do damage, and it's something that we don't need."

Sounds like Rush may not be able to buy a team.
He, we and the NFL will survive.
Careful Mr. Irsay. You can afford to be sued.
These people are complete Idiots. No one has done more for the NFL viewership than Rush and he give them a lot of air time on his show.
MORONS ONE AND ALL!
by the way
I hope Rush sues that PANTIES off the idiots who falsely reported info.
Aren’t all the players in these negotiations in under a non disclosure agreement?
I could just as easily watch college football and boycott the NFL based on how they treat conservatives.
If you watch NFL football on NBC, you have to listen to Olbermann. Olbermann is good for the NFL and Rush is not... sick.

I suggest they produce the tape of the comments.
I bet the “comments” he is referring to are the lies.

Good point about Olbermann but he isn’t an owner. I certainly support a boycott of NBC.
Jim Irsay went on to say that “and my lovely Honduran houseboy Marco said he also thinks its a good idea to keep Limbaugh out of the NFL”.
No shock here - Irsay’s a big lib...I may contact the Colts office and express my displeasure.
Well, we’ve discovered that Irsay is a smack off.
What a surprise.
Stay classy, Irsay.
Any word on when he is going to petition the NFL to force Al Davis to sell the Raiders?
