Why should RUSH throw in with a bunch of spineless wusses? He is lucky.

He will find a much better sports team investment in one of the Redder States, less risk, and much better returns.

The only positive in all of this is many have drawn lines that can’t be taken back.

It’s time for football fans to realize it’s not just about the game. Our freedoms are under attack.

“the Raiders and Lions are still the competition for the “worst in the league” trophy.”

You haven’t seen any Browns games, have you?

I have not been to any sports event or watched even one game on TV for 35 years now. I’ve spent my time over the last three decades quietly boycotting the world and feeding my head with conservative idealogy. I think it was a better investment of my time!

I can say, the Lions are already much better than last year, and Stafford will be a good QB. I think they win 5 games this year, which isn’t bad, considering how awful they were last year, they hung in there with Pittsburgh, and that was with Culpepper at QB. I think they had a shot to win had Stafford been in there.

It’s the first time in 2 seasons the Lions are scoring in groups of 7 instead of 3!

Oh, and 3-13, look for 5 next year.

There are a few stories posted on here, some indicate that Checketts has decided to drop Rush, others that he ‘knows he has to’ drop Rush. It’ll be good to hear the real story.

I am SURE we will hear tomorrow on his show .. OR I bet he could have Sean or Greta bring him on their shows tonight if he really wants to ramp it up. Greta, especially, is a big football fan (and one of Green Bay’s owners, IIRC); Rush has been on her show recently and she would jump at the chance of a repeat.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell addressed Limbaugh’s potential involvement in the league and said “divisive comments are not what the NFL is all about.”

Good, Commissioner. Then tell CNN and MSNBC to stop making them up out of whole cloth.

I think the NFL needs more black and gay owners and less music&movie celebrities.

What a disgusting bunch of elites.

I hope Favre lift the Vikings curse ,

Then we both can retire from the NFL once and for all.

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.

None of which would have much relevance to a suit as near as I can determine. Discovery of those items would seem to be quite a task.

I know. Me too. Colts fan here, I’m sick about their owner opening his mouth, but liberals stuck with the team when Dungy was offending them with his comments about how his Superbowl win was not just a victory for black coaches but Christian coaches.

I hope Rush sues the proper individuals that need to be sued.
Rush isn’t going to stop being a Steelers fan, so why should I stop being a Colts fan?

I think the better legal theories would be a tortious interference with contractual relations or interference with prospective business advantage. Easier to get around the public figure issues associated with a defamation/slander theory.

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.

Now that's the quote of the day.

Heck, that quote sounds more like the dems on Capitol Hill.

I have a feeling that Rush isn’t agonizing over this as much
as we are. He has many interests to keep him busy!

It would have been fun to own a team...but he’s got a life
and doesn’t NEED it to make him happy.

Maybe there's still some way Rush can participate (invest through a trust or, by incorporating?).

Regardless, I can only hope the Post-Dispatch has to do something about their racist S.O.B. columnist, Bryan Burwell (right). He and the rest of his ilk can go pound sand.
