Oh I definately agree with you that a football show is not all encompassing. I was merely sharing a viewpoint. The drug allegation (if true) is indeed a large concern. However, when the allegations of clintoons drug habits & known association with Dan Lassiter,etc, surfaced naturally it was not news. I think Rush will do & be just fine however this plays out. He has things to say & there are a lot of folks that want to listen. Why would his drug problem (if true) stop him? After all, how many athletes have had drug/alcohol problems and continued on in their career? I wouldn't expect a double standard to apply here! The left has been "gunning" for Rush for quite awhile, & have seized on this to try to destroy him. When a "lefty" gets caught it is an affliction, a medical problem, a disease, something requiring "treatment," It will indeed get interesting to say the least!

I agree that these prescription drug allegations (if proven true) would not necessarily kill Rush's career, but they could. It really depends on how he handles it. Don't want to speculate too much on how he should handle it at this point because there may be no truth at all in these allegations. But a no-nonsense straightforward explanation of what happened would be best. Coming straight on the matter would make those who are trying to capitalize on it look like jerks. Being wishy-washy and trying to avoid the issue will only fuel the flames and start angering his own fans.
