But the charge is that he was defamed specifically on the ‘racial comments’ issue. General character regarding divorce or use of prescription drugs aren’t germane to that. “Character” is a relative term, he would be proving a specific lie versus financial loss due to that lie.
In other words, you said I said X, because of that, I lost YY dollars, X was a lie, therefore you are responsible for the loss of YY dollars. Character opinions don’t matter, the case relies on if X was a lie, was there a loss, and was this done with malicious intent.
Character opinions are mostly just stuff seen in movies, they are more difficult to use in real life.
RE the LA Rams:
“My team. That son of a bitch got my team (the LA Rams).”
“What kind of pressure did he use, Milt?”
“Well, I asked for 64 million, and he said OK.”
From: Heaven Can Wait
“”””I say we all boycott the NFL for starters.”””””
But I already bought 200lbs of chicken wings.
I have been a sports fan for years; however, I gave up baseball during strikes and the fact that the games are boring (time between pitches, throws to first, etc.). I gave up basketball since the games are all played in the last 2 minutes by thugs. Football will be harder but I am prepared to give it up. Maybe I will spend more time at church and on the internet where my time is productive.
You are slow if you think that is the route it would go.
Abd the Cleveland Rams before that, IIRC....
Spanos is big time Republican.
They dont want whitey anymore!
Then whitey shouldn’t pick up the tab anymore.
Spineless, gutless white men (Checketts and co.) bend over again.
Spanos reportedly has Alzheimer’s.
They must have been wearing some of those horrible 50th anniversary throwback uniforms.
People seem to forget that there is an extremely limited number of people with the cash to make this type of investment AND the desire to do so.
I did not know this. My sister has been to their house several times. I am surprised she has not mentioned it. Too busy raising six kids, I guess.
The left would be drooling all over themselves to get Rush under oath in discovery. Rush does not want to go under oath to answer questions about Oxycontin, Viagra, marriages, divorces and draft deferment and anything else that they could use as a smear.
And how are such questions germain and relevant discovery? The slander and libel are about racism.
These are the oldest NFL owners. I wonder how many would have coted for Rush?
Ralph Wilson - 1918 - Buffalo Bills
Virginia McCaskey 1923 - Chicago Bears
Bud Adams - 1923 TN Titans
Alex Spanos - 1923 SD Chargers
William Clay Ford, Sr. 1925 - Detoit Lions
Tom Benson - 1927 - NO Saints
Malcolm Glazer -1928 - TB Bucs
Al Davis - 1929 Raiders
The NFL gives “second chances” only to thugs, murderers, rapists, drunks, druggies, felons, dog killers, and steroid junkies...but a conservative talk show host who wants to use his own money to buy a team that is the worst in the league? No.
“See? I Told You So”
Al Davis would have been held hostage by MoveOn to make sure he voted no.
When entertainers try to influence politics and I go to their movies, or performances, I am in effect making a campaign contribution since the only reason they have a public voice is because they are famous and they are only famous because they have an audience. If they have no audience they will have no money to throw around and no “voice” either. This seems to be about the last bit of power we have, to shrug at these people. They can’t (yet) make us buy tickets.
How is Rush owning the Rams any different than Herb Kohl owing the Bucks?
that’s what I think too.
And why would he have to answer any questions regarding any of those things? They have nothing to do with the case. You can’t just ask any questions you want during trial.
Goodell is a candyass.
(And it ain't Shinola.)
“Boycott the NFL...”
Ah, sorry loyalties run only so deep.
It would be fitting (and ironic) if Checketts can’t find additional funds, and the team ends up moving back to the Los Angeles area with a new stadium.
Beyond sickening .. and I’m very chagrined at Jane
Skinner’s husband, NFL Commish Roger Goodell, who
I had thought was a man of reason and backbone.
And so much for a partner like Checketts .. good
that Rush learned now that he’s a spineless wuss.

No Rush: Limbaugh Out Of Rams Bid
The PC and thought PO-lice run the world.
Marxism in action! What can anyone really say; its what you do about it that counts.
Always found Julie Christie extraordinarily beautiful...
Rush start your own league!!!!
Cleveland Rams (1937-1942, 1944-1945)
Roger Goodell addressed Limbaughs potential involvement in the league and said divisive comments are not what the NFL is all about.
Hey, Roger. You ever heard of T.O.???
>>> I am sure Marc Levin would do this Pro Bono with Landmark Legal. <<<
That would be a great plan

Let us hope he does something about this, otherwise his call to action for conservatives becomes a bit thin.
Michael Vick can be a quarterback in the NFL. That’s fine. Rush can’t own a team because of something he didn’t even SAY?
I’d say he has a lawsuit - reverse racism. I guarantee you that IF he were black, they wouldn’t be concerned as much about the color of his money.
Remember when PC was just kind of funny and irritating? PC HERE? Communism HERE? Funny that since then we’ve broken the rat stranglehold on congress, lost it back, and now the vandals have taken the walls.
I am sent them an email too. told them I am done with watching games, purchasing merchandise, going to games, and following teams.
I will not bow down to Al Sharpton and Keith Olbermann types.
wait for it....if no other group shows up with deep enough pockets that is willing to keep the team in St. Louis, you’ll have BLACK DEMOCRAT GOVERNMENT LEADERS from St. Louis and East St. Louis begging Rush to get back in.
Race baiting is one thing. Mortgage payments on an empty dome are something else again.
Who knows if Checketts told Rush before he publicly spoke.
I can’t get interested in games in this day and age. I get so disgusted with politics that I try, but it just puts me to sleep now. It’s just “on” when I try, I don’t get into it.
“the vandals have taken the walls.”
No, the vandals stole the handles!
With all due respect... the Raiders and Lions are still the competition for the “worst in the league” trophy...
