 rotfl   rotfl  . So the St. Louis Rams already suck. They have lost 14 straight games dating back to last year (I think). Could you imagine a guy like Limbaugh as a part owner? This story made my day.

I don't know much about football, but he talks about football all the time. He may actually be able to turn the team around. In a couple of seasons. Turning a team around does not always happen overnight. IMO, this is something he would be very good and smart at.

Rush got his start in sports broadcasting and is a huge sports fan. He's a big Steelers fan, but I'd rather see him run a football team then some amature who's just in it for the money like the spend happy clown in that owns the Redskins.

Thank you! Already the best post of the thread. This is just business, plain and simple. Best of luck to him if he can help turn that team around.

Given the abysmal ownership situation of the Rams, having Limbaugh or anyone who is actually genuinely interested in being a good NFL owner is a good thing. Besides,isn’t he from Missouri? So I guess that would bode well for keeping the team in STL. Forget politics, people. This could be a good stabilizing move for a franchise that is in disarray from the owner to the field.

And Checketts has stabilized the Blues ownership after several disastrous years on uncertainty with them. The Blues had made the playoffs EVERY YEAR OF THEIR EXISTENCE until key players like Pronger, et al, were scuttled due to the pending ownership change. They’re finally getting back on their feet.

Every city should be so lucky to find interested passionate responsible owners; on the surface it looks like a good thing for the Rams.

Yep, it would be nice if the Rams could turn it around with some responsible ownership. Just a few short years ago the won the Super Bowl, what has happened to them.

I am glad that me team (the Steelers) has had responsible ownership for decades and continue to do so.

Good Luck to the Rams.

You're welcome! Everyone knows I can not stand his opinions on politics, but I honestly think he would be a very good team owner. This has absolutly nothing to do with politics and right and left and all that. Can he own a team and run it well? Sure. Good luck to him, if he does it!

That's the beauty of the NFL system though, well, depending on how you view it. Teams that are good now might be bad a few years from now while the teams that are on the bottom can work their way up. It all has to do with the profit sharing system they use, which is very socialistic but works for the NFL. The way it works is when you buy NFL merchandise, the profit from that purchase is split evenly amongst all the teams. This prevents the situation that you have in baseball, where teams in smaller markets have a much more difficult time competing with teams like New York and Boston and paying the high salaries that the top players demand. In the NFL, however, a team may be on top one year but then another team has the ability to acquire great players.

Rush might just be one of the people who can help get this team some resources and turn the team around.

Personally, I wish that for once, an NFL team could be owned by a rich Black man (or woman - Oprah?) instead of another rich white guy. There is such miniscule ownership of major sports franchises by non-whites that it is appalling despite many sports franchises (except for hockey) are dominated by players who are non-white.

Rush knows he won't be on the radio forever (and the sooner he is off the better in my opinion) and may be looking at someplace to put his huge income from his radio career. There is no doubt he could be a very good owner, he does love sports and has some work experience in major league sports (KC MLB front office role for several years). I do wonder if some of his comments may be used against him in his applying to the NFL for approval to buy into a team. You also have the issue of the non-white players wanting to work for him, but then again the money is always green and would he be any different in his political and social views than all the other owners of major league sports.

Rush is a huge sports fan. He talks about the NFL a lot. For those of you who never listen to him and think the show is all politics all the time you are wrong. Rush also has mentioned his friendship with the NFL commissioner in the past. I would think he knows the ins and outs of the NFL fairly well.

Yes he is. Cape Girardeau to be exact. There is a statue of his grandfather at the court house. His family has been involved with Missouri Republicans sine the 1920s, maybe earlier.

I doubt it. Money is money and playing in the NFL is a big deal. The Lions still find players and they are horrible.

They are free to buy one if they want to. I don't know if Oprah is even into sports. If you aren't into the game you won't be a good owner.

Quoting LTBEWR (Reply 10):

Probably not, he is just a higher profile person.

I look forward to the Rams being part of the EIB radio network.

I wonder if part of it has to do with ego? Being in front of the camera/people could be more of an ego rush for some people than being behind the scenes. Or, I wonder if it could be that some blacks with money think they really can't do much as owners as opposed to those actually throwing and catching touchdowns or making the last minute jumper from outside the three-point line? Or, they just reach a point where they see owning a team as frivolous and would rather put their money into owning land and cars. Hmmmm. Interesting point.

I know and that is great, but I bring up the staying in the St. Louis thing because there has been speculation that if the team was sold it would move. With Rush having ties to Missouri it likely means he will be keeping the team in St. Louis.

I wasn't in St. Louis right after the moved, but three years later. It was kind of dead. You would still see St. Louis Cardinals stuff around, but it was off there was no team. The Redbirds were on local TV for a number of years after the move though. West County Lanes, a bowling alley, had a picture of Bill Bidwell on their mens room door for years. There was a lot of distaste for the Bidwells in St. Louis. Just as a word of trivia. The Falstaff Brewing Corporation played a big part in bringing the cards to St. Louis, from Chicago. Even their offices were just down the street from each other. Falstaff was the beer sponsor for Card games until 1975.

Actually, no. He IS a Steelers fan. He’s made that quite clear.

And players have their prerogative to say what they will, but they’ll follow the money. Cut the sanctimonious race-baiting bullcrap. There are owners that are FAR worse in what they do, who they are, and what they do with their dough.
