Republicans/ conservatives will do nothing to retaliate.

Frankly, it is PAST time for conservatives to demand the same standard be applied to hypocrites like Sharpton and to demand the NFL makes such the hysterical leftist Keith Oblermann is removed from Sunday Night Football.

It's time to get as aggressive as left. You deal with bullies by hitting them back harder.

He must be able to sue for slander!!!!!!!

lThere would be no justice for Rush in the current courts. There is no justice for anyone against the racial juggernaut.

They players in the NFL and NBA hate whitey, but take their money....and vote for Democrats to steal whitey's earnings too.

SUCKERS! Is correct.

White men can't give up their football even for a patriot like Rush.

Telling. And explains why commies shit all over us daily, they know white men are scared of them.

You betcha. What are the odds?
Just saw on BOR, great lawsuit coming. Also read on MRC, Brent Bozell, none of the “journalists” did what asked, and the last line is “I hope they have good lawyers”
I hope he wins his own team!

He should buddy up with Al Davis...Davis may sell him part of the Raiders just to piss the league off.

As a Raider fan..yeah, yeah, I know....so don't go there....This would be great, the Raiders might learn how to be exceptional again.

Then again as long as Al is in charge were going to suck.

You are absolutely not a professor, which makes you a liar!

YOU claimed to have information but could not or would not provide a source.

YOU need “citation” explained to you, but it still seems that you still don’t understand it.

Should you ever produce work for a professor, know this, you will be expected to do your research, but you will also be required to source yourt research. Footnotes, endnotes, bibliography, the whole nine yards.

Don’t thank me. I’m pleased to educate you, even though I had asked to be educated as to your sources and came away disappointed.

Listening to ESPN radio today, commentator was saying Rush would be even less welcome in the NBA. So much for a color-blind society.

No surprise. It's not the players, nor the owners, nor the fans, driving this train. It's journalists.

And, if you think sports journalists are any different from their opposite numbers in the newsroom, you're sadly mistaken.

The entire "profession" is overrun with liberals -- who are only too happy to attack and destroy a conservative. Indeed, they believe it is their holy mission.

The entire "profession" set out to deny Limbaugh his legitimate desire, by any means necessary...and they used a bald-faced lie to do it.

What's worse, they're proud of what they did.

If Rush is smart he’ll take the money from the lawsuit and buy himself a nice private island somewhere. When the dollar falls to pennies, he’ll have a safe haven to run to. That’s what I would do if I had that kind of money.

Perhaps if certain NFL owners don’t want Rush in the ownership perhaps they don’t want conservatives as fans or viewers. I’d have to assume their advertisers are of the same mind. Perhaps conservative should boycott the NFL and their advertisers?

How dare you call ohioWFan a liar. Just like a typical liberal you make stuff up, can’t find, or choose to ignore, the facts and when it is pointed out to you, you call somebody a liar.

I can see what a waste of time you are. I think DU would be more to your liking, you’d fit in well.

LOL! Yes, I am a professor, and I assign research papers, and demand that they be adequately sourced, researched and cited. (I use the Turnitin program to check for plagiarism - ever heard of it? It's quite remarkable and makes one good at spotting phonies.)

Enough of this conversation. Your questions have been answered. You just refuse to learn.

Actually, I think he's kinda funny, beandog.

He's calling me a liar when I have a bunch of FRiends who know full well what I do for a living, and where, and I could summon them forth whenever I want.

He's digging himself into a very deep hole and looking very silly (and I agree with your assessment. He's no conservative).

I have been reading the threads about this all over the internet. It’s the same tripe.

Rush is “racist”.

Not one person has pointed to a specific verifiable racist comment he has ever made.

The big one with McNabb was simply his way of pointing out that the media is racist by looking at people based on skin color. He is color blind. It went way over their heads.

This needs to be put in a email to those negotiating the deal!!! I am not a NFL fan at all...never have been , so this doesn’t affect me...

HOWEVER I AM a big fan of Rush and his conservative views. He is a honest, forthright and decent man! If that is not good enough for the NFL then yes, no more $$$$ into the NFL period!!

I fully intend to boycott the NFL to whatever extent I can. If they are going to conflate conservatism with racism, they will try to do whatever they want to any conservative. Enough is enough. I didn’t come into this life needing professional football, and I certainly don’t need it now. It gives me several hours on Sunday when I can do something constructive. And I don’t have to help keep Keith Olbermann supported.

Fine we will agree to part.

But upon parting, I must point out three things. First, even a professor cannot demand that a research paper be cited. A research paper is only cited by those who read and use it as a source. No matter the imaginary power you feel that you wield over your imaginary studets, you cannot, “...assign research papers, and demand that they be adequately sourced, researched and cited.”

Second, you misspelled plagarism.

Third, I recognize plagarism the old fashioned way. I am familiar, and up to date with the subject matter.

Good night.

The fact that these drooling idiots think the Rams are in LA is a perfect demonstration of how little these “news media” people really know. Football fans are probably few and far between in that crowd.

I would like to see him go after Al, Jesse, NBC and CNN in that order. If he does nothing else force them to spend a ton of their own money defending their bogus statements about him. Both attorneys of Fox said he has a great case and today the damages were exposed.

Ummm..........you misspelled, plagiarism, son.

Oh.......and you misspelled "students" too. LOL!

And I'm sure that the student to whom I just had to give an F on his midterm progress report would love to be "imaginary," but unfortunately for him he's very real.

You, on the other hand, are a phony.

C’mon! The courts aren’t that bad - not yet. And since the slander is nationwide, Rush can forum shop.

Why is Rush Limbaugh's name along with Dave Checketss the only two mentioned as potential buyers in the entire group of buyers?

It is unfortunate that Limbaugh's name is known before the deal is sealed. It is even of greater injustice that a man cannot live freely in his own country and be able to do what other of his peers can do, just because of his profession and advocacy for conservative values.
