Let me start by saying that I do not in any way, shape, or form give a flying crap about professional football. I think that every Fall Friday night all across America, thousands of kids put more blood, sweat, and tears into highschool football games than those overpaid thugs ever will. Something funny happens when you get paid a ridiculous amount to do something that comes easily to you – you become arrogant and complacent. Yep, that pretty much sums up the National Football League.
So everyone has heard by now that the horrible, white, “racist”, conservative Rush Limbaugh was part of a group that was trying to buy the St. Louis Rams. Rush was dropped from this group by the Dave Checketts, who was heading the bid. But why?
NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, cited this reason: “divisive comments are not what the NFL is all about.” And this, “I’ve said many times before, we’re all held to a high standard here. I would not want to see those comments coming from people who are in a responsible position in the NFL — absolutely not.”
Sooo, let me see if I’ve got all this straight. You can be convicted of running a dog-fighting ring on your property. That’s perfectly okay. We’ll still let you play in the NFL. You may be dropped by your old team, but obviously the Philadelphia Eagles will pick you up. But you absolutely cannot, under any circumstances, be an outspoken conservative. We will make up lies about you to prove that you are an evil racist. We are about 100% sure that you are viewing the NFL as a Plantation. (WHAT???)
I’m from the Charlotte area of North Carolina. Back when we had both the Charlotte Hornets and the Carolina Panthers residing in Charlotte, those players were always in the news getting DUI’s, getting into fights, etc. I think the crime rate rose exponentially with the addition of each new team. First you had Rae Carruth who was charged with murder for having someone kill his pregnant girlfriend. Just last year, Dwayne Jarrett- a Panther’s wide receiver – was arrested for DWI. Back when Kerry Collins was still with the Panthers, he was also arrested for drunk driving and also used a racial slur (starts with an n) against a teammate. Interestingly enough, Collins is still in the NFL playing for the Tennessee Titans.
My point is, the NFL is not a bridge club. It is not a tea party. It is not the cub scouts. These players, owners, coaches are not saints by any stretch of the imagination. For this establishment to look down its nose at Rush, as if he would soil their spotless reputation, is ridiculous. Once again, liberals have made up lies about someone because they have no other recourse. They have no real case against him. They hate him because he exposes them for their evil, anti-American ways. And once again, if you do not believe the liberal Socialist hogwash that is coming out of Washington, you are a racist. And you are just waiting for the first opportunity to buy a plantation.
Just some food for thought: One liberal interviewed after the G20 summit stated, “Please tell me why ANYONE would need to make more than $200,000 a year?” The NFL should probably stick with Rush. I don’t think he would favor capping their salaries.
