Limbaugh issue: Hypocrisy abounds in the NFL

[This post includes political, social and Dolphins commentary. If you have a problem with any of those don't bother reading it.]

Pulling his shorts up to his waist and then motioning over to a couple of waiting reporters who wanted to interview him in the Dolphins locker room Wednesday, nose tackle Jason Ferguson used the N-word.

He was talking either to a teammate or one of the reporters who is black, but that didn't matter because the word seemingly floated away -- clearly heard but ignored because, in an NFL locker room, that word is uttered by players practically every day.

Sometimes the N-word is said in jest. Sometimes it is said in anger or rage. Sometimes it is blasted through boom boxes playing rap music. Sometimes it is clustered with taunts about another player's mother or wife or, in extreme vengeance-filled moments, another player's boyfriend.

And this is the NFL Roger Goodell wants to protect from Rush Limbaugh comments?

Limbaugh will not be part of the group trying to buy the St. Louis Rams, it was announced Wednesday. Pressure from inside and outside the NFL doomed Limbaugh's attempt to own the team, meaning a group of people decided a game played on a lined field has to draw one more line to keep Limbaugh out.

Funny how folks that once marched against exclusion, such as Jesse Jackson, will call for exclusion when it suits them. Interesting how Al Sharpton is appalled at Limbaugh's divisiveness but gives himself a free pass when he says things like, "white folks was living in caves while we was building empires." 

The hypocrisy on this issue is everywhere. It is rampant. It is sickening.

The same commissioner that is allowing dog-killer Michael Vick to play in the NFL doesn't want Limbaugh to vie for an ownership stake because, "We're all held to a high standard here and divisive comments are not what the NFL's all about," Goodell said earlier this week. "I would not want to see those kind of comments from people who are in a responsible position in the NFL, no. Absolutely not."

So the league allows dog-killers, wife-beaters, strip club addicts, girlfriend-batterers, drug addicts, drunk drivers, and coaches who allegedly bust up other coaches, but the commish is worried about divisive quotes?

About those quotes: The same news media that is "reporting" what Limbaugh has said in the past is filled with people who loathe Limbaugh because they don't agree with his view of the world. Those "journalists" have been trotting out two quotes from Jack Huberman's 2006 book, "101 People Who Are Really Screwing America."

The first and most damning of those, quotes Limbaugh as saying, "Let's face it, we didn't have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: Slavery built the South. I'm not saying we should bring it back. I'm just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."

That quote appeared on CNN's Rick Sanchez show. It appeared in a column written on Foxsports.com. It appeared all over the Internet.

And not one "journalist" who used it can verify its validity. Not one 'journalist" who broadcast the quote actually heard Limbaugh say it. Not one actually heard a tape recording of Limbaugh saying it. Meanwhile, on one of his shows this week, Limbaugh said he's never uttered those words.

Somebody produce the tape or retract the quote!

And, yes, the second quote does not make this space because it is equally unsubstantiated and unverifiable.

Another thing the "journalists" reporting this story haven't told you: Huberman, the man they are using as their source, has penned other books, including The Bush-Haters Handbook and The GOP-Haters Handbook. So, of course, it's not like Huberman has an agenda or anything dark like that.

I am part of the media. I have friends in the media. Most of those friends lean left. They know, and now you know, I lean right. That's not the point. The point is the media has an agenda. And my agenda is to expose the hypocrisy on this issue.

I saw that hypocrisy at work in the Miami locker room Wednesday.

Several reporters were going around the locker room asking players their opinions of Limbaugh and the possibility he might own an NFL team

This is how one interview went:

Reporter: "What's your take on Rush Limbaugh and the Rams?"

Running back Ronnnie Brown scissors closed his index finger and thumb and zips them across his mouth to signify his lips are sealed. And after a pause Brown then says... 

"I don't know, I mean, I guess it's good in a way that he's interested in wanting to be the owner of an NFL team. At the same time, who's to say. I don't know."

That, of course, is not the answer the reporter wants. It sounds almost pro-Limbaugh. So ...

Reporter: "Well some guys would say they would never play for a team that he has ownership stake in. You think that's a legitimate statement?"

Of course anyone would answer that is a legitimate statement. It's an opinion from another player so how is Brown supposed to say it is not legitimate? The question is leading and practically begs agreement with the dump-Limbaugh agenda.

And despite this, Brown refuses to go in that direction.

"Obviously, they're entitled to their own opinion," he responds. "For me, I'm not going to say that. I don't know. You never know. You could be sitting here jobless and depending on what kind of situation you're in and you don't have any money coming in, it's hard to turn down a job like this."

Greg Camarillo is Hispanic. So not only is he a minority in American society, he's among the smallest of minorities in a league that is approximately 65 percent black, 30 percent white and approximately 5 percent everybody else.

So what does Camarillo think of Limbaugh's attempt to enter the league before news of his exclusion is announced?

"Ya'll trying to make me political real quick," he says to reporters with a grin. "I don't have too much to say about that. We'll let the business handlers handle their business. But, I mean, the man has said controversial things in the past. Things that bring up the issue of race. The NFL is obviously a diverse work place. You have to be pretty sensitive to everybody's beats. You can't alienate any group. That being said, we leave the business to the business people and trust the NFL and NFLPA handle it properly."

Camarillo is much too trusting.

The NFL Players Association, the union representing the players, encouraged its players to speak out on the Limbaugh matter. According to this ESPN report, NFL Players executive director DeMaurice Smith wrote an e-mail to the union's executive committee on the subject.

"I've spoken to the Commissioner and I understand that this ownership consideration is in the early stages," Smith wrote. "But sport in America is at its best when it unifies, gives all of us reason to cheer, and when it transcends. Our sport does exactly that when it overcomes division and rejects discrimination and hatred."

Agreed. The NFL is best when it transcends things such as polictics. So why is Smith getting all political? The NFL is best when it overcomes division. So why doesn't Smith admit he, himself, is divisive when he mentions discrimination without citing a tangible, verifiable example?

It is called double-speak.

This, meanwhile, is not double-speak, but fact: Smith served in President Clinton's Administration as Counsel to then Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder in the US Department of Justice. Holder is now in President Barak Obama's Attorney General. Both Clinton and Obama are Democrats.

Smith has contributed $6,850 to political campaigns since 2004 -- all to Democrat Party candidates. Smith made his largest contribution in 2008 when he contributed $2,300 to President Obama's campaign. Limbaugh, in case you are not aware, is one of President Obama's most ardent and high-profile critics.

So is Smith transcending his differences with Limbaugh? Or is Smith using his position as a union boss to further his personal political beliefs and bring down an opposing point of view?

Smith's e-mail rejects discrimination. Well, is it not discriminatory in America to want to exclude someone from a business venture simply because one does not agree with that person's politics?

Yes. Or no. Please answer.

And back to the "journalists" for a second: Did you read anywhere what Smith's political leanings actually are in all those stories you read where he rips Limbaugh's attempt at ownership? Or were those facts left out?

Think!

Now Limbaugh is not a pristine individual. He's been divorced three times -- some NFL people have been divorced just as often. In 2003 he admitted being addicted to prescription pain killers -- Brett Favre once admitted to the same. He often appears on Fox News Channel championing conservative views -- as does Goodell's wife, Jane Skinner, who is an anchor and commentator on the channel and the daughter of a former White House Chief of staff under the elder President Bush.

So what makes Limbaugh so villainously different?

Limbaugh is polarizing in a country that, guess what, is polarized. But he is no more, and probably less, of a racist than the two men leading the charge against his ownership bid -- Sharpton, who infamously offended Mormons last year and Jackson, who once referred to Jews as "Hymies."

Limbaugh has addressed race issues in forums that "journalists" can actually confirm.

Limbaugh resigned from ESPN in 2003 for stirring a racial controversy when he basically said Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was getting preferential treatment from the media because he is black.

"I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL," Limbaugh said on air. "The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well, There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

Stupid, yes. Unsophisticated in its general assumptions, yes.

But racist?

The NFL better clean up all the N-words floating around its locker rooms before anyone makes that leap.

What a typical Conservative whiner. "Look, if the NFL had determined that the drug addicted sex tourist would have had a positive impact on the the league’s bottom line, Goodell and Checketts would’ve happily welcomed him into the club. They decided he would not, so he wasn’t. That’s all there is too it."

Killer I ask you other night, you born in US. You never answer me. Now you asking fool

F off overseas d bag. Mando has some guts

My point earlier was that by declaring how you lean will cloud people's judgement about who you are. Some people on here commented that now that thye know you lean left they are disgusted. I guess it is something we could do without.

lol nice comeback shaggy, does someone need to change their diapey??

OverseasFan are you even American? Overseas were are you at and were are you from ?

Posted by: KillerDolphins | October 15, 2009 at 01:39 PM

Why does that matter? I thought America's job was to spread democracy to those who want it or not want it. Free speech isn't just for Americans you know. The people spoke out and they dropped the racist. For some reason that upsets Mando. Where was he when they spoke out about the Williams Sisters on Darlington's BS board.

Overseas fan you are RIGHT ON about the Vikes. Armando blows. Fire him.

shaggy and littlehey5 are both butt buddies and go go rot in he||

Shaggy is a tremendous moron. He should be on Fox News with all the other rambling idiots out there that speak before they think.

Posted by: Dat RoRo Kid | October 15, 2009 at 01:42 PM


You dolt, you are doomed to fail in life. You probably don't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. Liberals like you are to be laughed at.

I love Armando's reporting and it disgusts me when you all pick on him. Do not make me hurt you all losers

"shaggy and littlehey5 are both butt buddies and go go rot in he||"

cute, want to respond to anything I've actually brought to the table or are you too stupid to understand the issue?

Shaggy stop it you are making us look bad you idiot.

awesome Im here for 2 hours and I get a stalker

Darot kid and overseas are two cool cats here.
Two wuss boys are littlehey5 and shaggy

I saw littlehey5 at a KKK meeting last week. I know cause I was there.

look, someone is namejacking me hardcore, I guess Im just too smart for you mouthbreathers.

shaggy is a dumbass and mando
should be ashamed for letting emotion cloud his writing. THIS IS MY FINAL POST ON THIS BLOG.

Little, you are doing a good job on your own. Don't lump me in with you.

Well said Armando, thank you for having the courage to post this.

OverseasFan you sound like the same type of individual that wants everyone off the air that doesn't agree with you... You are a sad biased person who is a danger to the American way of life that my family members and so many others Americans family members have died to give us all so many FREEDOMS

Roy courage??? Should he get a purple heart or Nobel Peace prize?

Mando,
Keep putting your opinions in the blog its a free country for you to write what you want, those that dont like what you write dont read it. Obama is half white hes not even a full black man, but white america voted him in so i guess america is racist.


why oh WHY can't fat millionaire drug addicts who piss off half the country do whatever they want with no consequences?? rush limbaugh is rosa parks ghandi and nelson mandela all rolled into one! go back to France ya socialists!

Killer you no speak. I call you out

The part I find amusing, is that everyone who would defend Limbaugh in this or in ANYTHING, is a Republican. Simple as that. Seriously, I wish we could re-do this whole situation, only make it Howard Stern or some other personality from "the other side," just to prove my point. I don't mean have it happen again after this, I mean, literally rewind time and make everything the same, make all the comments and quotes the same, only change it from Rush Limbaugh to someone completely on the other side of the political fence. And you would see that all of a sudden, Armando's tune would either be the exact opposite, OR he would have nothing to say at all.

I have come to find that to a conservative mindset, it essentially doesn't matter what the issue at hand is, it doesn't matter how clear it is that one way is better for everyone than the other, they will blindly fight on the side with their fellow Republicans, and won't even take notice of anything else. Common sense and logic go out the window, suddenly judge of character plays no part whatsoever, and they stubbornly stick to their guns all in the name-sake of Republicans.

I'm not going to say there are no Democrats who follow that train of thought, of course there are. But I have found that the Democratic "side" is not comprised of only political standpoints, but also largely made up of people who are genuinely trying to make things better for everyone, for now and for the future, of people who simply want to do what is fair and makes the most sense in the long run. In fact, like me, this side is made up of people who don't even want to call themselves a "Democrat" necessarily, we just have no choice but to pick the side that is closest to what we believe.

For instance, most everyone I know who voted for Obama weren't voting for "their political side," (unlike every single McCain vote I spoke to), they were voting for what appeared to be someone who would actually try, who would honestly put effort into making a change that benefits all of us, no matter who you are, who would at least attempt to do what is in our best interests. We were judging character.
And in judging Limbaugh's character, (yes I've listened to his biased and one-sided show) it is clear that whether or not he said those "quotes" he is still a hypocritical person, someone who sees nothing wrong with lying. And you know what else, I don't need proof to "know" he said those comments, because just from listening to him I would venture to guess that he says much, much worse off the air to his rich, white friends.

I'm just saying, if I was Superman and could fly around the earth to rewind time, and then somehow change Rush Limbaugh to Howard Stern, I PROMISE you that Mando would have nothing to say, and if he did, he'd be on the opposite side of the argument. I realize that this can't happen to prove my point, and therefore if Mando actually reads this comment he will most likely respond with some "intelligent points" to make it seem like I'm wrong and way off from the truth. And because he's good at writing, he'll spin it around all in a sentence or two, making me seem like I'm arbitrarily making up these so-called "habits" of Republicans.

(...but whatever, I mean really, no one is reading this comment posted way down here, let alone Mando, so at this point I'm just rambling for the fun of it.)

shaggy isn't smart enough to win an argument on his own, so he reverts to the tactics of a child, it'd be funny if it weren't so sad

The NFL that allows a team to be called the REDSKINS has no validity in determining values.

The other should let Rush become part owner. Eventually he would put his foot in his mouth.

Seriously? People are calling names, trying to piss on each others shoes, over Armando expressing his opinion on HIS blog were "no subject is taboo"? I want pretend to be blog police but seriously? Armando is the best insider source for Dolphins news that I know of and for this reason I will continue to come back. I wouldn't hold a mans political views agianst him, everyone has the right to be wrong. Don't have me go on a tangent about the inadequaces of a 2 party system. Lean left, stumble over to the right doesn't matter, it's when you quit thinking for yourself that you start to lose a right to a point of view.

Mando, very well done. Props to you my friend.

Armando

Hypocrites aren't we all!

Your wrong when about this country being poloraized and having Rush as a owner is completley divisive and this and any news that states his name is only serving to help promote this idiot. Funny how Rushes view claims hes not polorizing America but Obama is? Right...
Last night, Conservative talk show host/ringmaster Rush Limbaugh told Jay Leno that he is not a polarizing figure and that everyone who listens to him agrees with him. Riiiiiight
His evidence for his claim was to state, "Obama is polarizing . . . look how divided the country is right now."
"But what Rush doesn't seem to understand is that the country really isn't that polarized, especially on health care reform -- a new poll today states that 65% of Americans want a public option and only 26% oppose it."

Funny but the N word as you referred to it is something that is wrong when said by people other than Blacks. But ok when said by a black person and after over 100 years of slavery they can and do reserve that right. And I dont care one way or another, but heres the thing Ignorance leads to fear which leads to hatred, and polorization. Now you can say its what you believe in or thats my political view but in reality most people are feed garbage from perople just like Rush and they crave it more and more. Because for one they can't think for themselves and two Rush's party is all about creating fear and drawing a line as us versus them. Thats devisive.
Rally around that never!

Littlehey It thought you were gone. You troubkle maker

Maxx,
The democratic party should change their name to the socialist,communist party cause their ruining this country and if you dont see it you
just look at the job losses and health reform issues they are socialist beliefs.

Mark,

Look, you've got to ask yourself this:

If the NFL did this for business purposes, what part of the business are they worried about?

It can't be ticket sales or public image. If that were the case then they wouldn't allow murderers, and animal killers to play in the league.

The difference between Rush and everyone else is this:

the congressional black caucus and the democrat party wouldn't go after the league for allowing criminals to play. But they would go after the league if Rush Limbaugh were allowed to be an owner.

Remember, the congress has threatened to take away the NFL's antitrust benefits in the past for much lesser offenses. The league has been under the pressure of antitrust legislation for decades.

So applying this Limbaugh issue to antitrust legislation would be very easy to do.

I don't blame the league for this. The commissioner has to do what is best for the league. And the last thing he needs is to put the antitrust exemptions in danger. That is worth more to the league than anything else.

The sad thing is that at one time Washington DC was the murder capital of the US. The Washington Bullets had no problems changing their name to the Washington Wizards because people complained. I feel for Native Americans who are offended by this. It is ironic that the majority of players are African American and have no complaints of this racial slur used as a team name.

NFL=Hypocrites

MC,
nope not a purple heart, but just an atta boy for voicing an opinion that was sure to get more than its fair share of criticism. that's all. Great Post Armando.

Dolphins4life and Maxx those were probably as well put as anyone could have, certainly better than me. You both should get 5 star ratings for your comments. Keep plowing the hard row and you'll reap what you sow.

Mando,

Like most companies, NFL policy is dictated by the almighty dollar. The level of forgiveness and number of second chances will always be proportional to a player's talent level and ability to make his team money. If that player can no longer perform then he will be let go in the name of upholding the league's "wholesome image".

I have little sympathy for Rush in this matter. Americans want to be entertained. Rush, Hannity, Maher, Moore, Olberman, and the rest are all entertainers. They can take any subject and present in such a way that will polarize and divide people. It's their job, it makes them a lot of money, and they do it well. Most people do not have the time or patience necessary to study an issue in detail before they decide what their position is. It is much easier to listen to a persuasive argument that affirms your general beliefs. LIke his other peers, Rush knows this and uses it to his advantage.

I have no doubt that these entertainers don't believe the majority of what they say. They certainly believe a good portion of what they espouse, but are forced to ramp up the level of rhetoric in order to generate strong emotions from their audience. I find it ironic that Rush is now a victim of the capitalistic society that he so vigorously defends. He has alienated a large portion of society. The NFL recognizes this and chooses not to allow him in because they feel it will hurt them financially. Hypocritical? Absolutely.

That said, I still have a difficult time feeling any sort of remorse for Rush losing this fight. What he does hurts America. It divides us and forces those who choose to listen to pick a side. It's sad that it takes an epic disaster on the level of 9/11 to make us realize that we are all brothers and sisters who share a common bond and wish the best for each other.

Mark,

If you don't think antitrust is an issue then look at this article from Sept. 29 of this year. The NFL is facing a huge hurdle and they need help from the Dems on this antitrust issue.

FTC, Department of Justice oppose NFL in antitrust case
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/09/25/ftc-department-of-justice-oppose-nfl-in-antitrust-case/

Antitrust is everything when it comes to the NFL. And the Dems control the legislation.

Why doesn't Rush try to be a good republican and buy a baseball team like his boy GW?

Because he want to make news and feed his constituency more crap.

This is POLARIZING because all of you are POLARIZABLE.

The media has figured out that we are addicted to PAIN.

There are three ways to succeed in life-

1) Accomplish something (as have many in history who have been oppressed)

2) Insult, Riducule, Undermine someone with your opinions, comments, gossip etc. Put them on blast.

3) Wait for a handout (entitlement)

Oprah-Tiger-Artie Moreno (LA Angels owner)-, Dan Snyder-Matsui Hideki-Gene Simmons-Ellen Digeneres-Ray Charles-

What do they all have? If you all pointed it out- (REASONS TO MAKE EXCUSES AND FAIL)

They chose to be LUCKY (let me clear my throat)
chose to focus on what they could do. Because of this they have achieved SUCCESS.

Mando and all of you. I celebrate that we still live in a place where we can have different views base on our own experiences in life. Hopefully as we evolve as a society we could learn to embrace some of the crazy steroetypes and differences.

I saw Chad Henne offer his hand to I think Chris Jenkins the other night when he was down in the game. He actually helped the guy up. We are all being fed this hate. I admit I partake too.

On this blog I can't see your skin or beliefs other than Dolphin fan or not.

Have a kick ass day!
Go PHins!

Tommya, So I quess what your trying to say is this is a prime example of the man keeping a brother down? That's funny, I don't care who you are, that's funny.

Mondo it is good to see that at least one media writters has not sold out to the unions that always pay to put the Dems in office. Rush made comments about McNaib that were offeensive to many people but the truth often hurts. What he said may not have been PC but it was factually correct at that point in McNabs career. Rush is being blackballed by people who have real race issues. Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, and Obama have made a living off of racial tensions. They are race baiters who need the issue to stay alive in order to gain personal wealth.

The real truth to all these posts is that everybody has the right to express their opinion no matter who agrees or disagrees,we need to get past the race issue and move on to the bigger picture, the moral fibre of this country is being torn down piece by piece by wealthy eletist who put these leaders in power and work for their agenda to enslave us to debt in this country wake up america.

DRG with the smackdown, now we're breaking out the PHD's, all you GED's better get to the back of the bus it's about to get deep.

I don't know if Limbaugh is racist or not. What I do know is that he will say and do anything to self-promote himself. Rush cannot step over a line with his commentary because to him there is no line of decency. I could care less if he wants to buy the Rams or not. But just as it is Limbaugh's right to be fat ass pompous jerk it is everyone's right to call him for what he is: A big fat pompous jerk who loves controversy and self promotion...

Wow, great piece Armando. Who knew ? I agree with everything you said here. I've had to stop listening to WQAM because of the remarks that are made there by Joe Rose, Big O,Goldie and NY Sid. It's funny how liberals like Jay Leno will trash white people with, Redneck this, and white trash that, so he can appeal to the 12% black population. Rush has the same rights as anyone else. And the people at WQAM are fools if they don't think the NFL doesn't promote black quarterbacks, coaches and owners.What will happen is the NFL will have the same problems that the NBA has now when it comes to race.

I am not a limbaugh supporter but I support this piece and feel something should be done about all these so-called impartial "journalists" that couldn't be more partial!!!

You somehow forgot this quote from Rush in 2007 "Look, let me put it to you this way: The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."

I'm glad that your political view has been and continues to be the minority. Stick with the subject you claim to know.

Phin4Life,

You really think Jay Leno is making fun of white people so that 12% of the population will laugh? You don't think white people laugh at redneck jokes? Jeff Foxworthy MADE HIS CAREER by making fun of rednecks and just guessing here, I'd have to say his audience is at least 95% white. Larry the Cable guy's persona is a redneck and his audience is hugely white and they love him. I think your Jay Leno reference falls way short of your intended point.

The ignorance by you Mando and most of these posters is dumbfounding. Yes...this is America and people have a right to speak their mind, but that works both ways. I have as much right to speak my mind against Rush as he does to spew his garbage. If you are a polarizing figure and offend enough people, there will be real world consequences. Bottom line -- it was a business decision by his own group and Rush was bad for business.

Mark,

Yep, that's essentially what I'm saying. Laugh if you want, but this is serious.

ignorance for your eyes only .
WE SHOULD MAKE LOVE NOT FIGHTING .
WE SHOULD MEATBALL SUBS.

Dear Nitemare, FLPD, Shaggy, Phins19 and especially Armando:

Please use the link below to check out some of Rush's "controversial comments" pertaining to a wilder conspiracy theory than 9-11 being an inside job.

Sorry folks, Rush's own opinions damn him here. Not doctored, not taken out of context, but purely out of his mouth.

You can ignore the comments from the two gentleman (if you are intelligent enough to realize that I only aim to show you what you asked for; i.e. proof that Rush has made racist comments). Please, feel free to listen to Limbaugh's own words to prove his candidacy for dunce of the decade.

Again, I don't care for what he says (though thank you Case Man for the props), however, No one has also answered the other question: If you had a choice in hiring or including this man in your OWN PERSONAL AFFAIRS/BUSINESS would you?

If you were an NFL owner, would you let this man into your fold? Yes his right hand man is black, but that doesn't mean Rush doesn't make a living off of insults and lobs at individuals he feels fit to comment at.

Enjoy:

To Rush or Not to Rush?

Is he a racist? DOes anyone really know if someone (other than a KKK member) is a racist? My guess is he has more trouble with behaviours than races. Unfortunately, his job is to be outrageous and that makes him seem more bigotted than he probably really is. He has been paid wewll to do it and this exclusion is probably the cost of his personna.

LMFAO ! I don't want to get into this much because it makes my blood boil. I 've been talking about this shyt for a long time on this blog. I told people be careful what you wish for. I hate to tell you i told you so . What you got is the left wing liberal radical socialist america ( remember newsweek : we're all socialists now ) LMFAO ! The USSA ! So limbaugh is out but that despicable human being Keith olberman is still involved with the NFL ? This piece of crap spews hate with his radical , left wing liberal wacky views but yet he's payed by nbc and the nfl. Talk about hypocracy ! LMFAO !

Wow it really amazes me that some people here are criticizing you for stating a point of view and an opinion. Yet their criticism is a point of view and opinion. If it can be said that Rush Limbaugh is a racist, then the same should be said of the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton. The actual difference is that the latter 2 actually make blatant racist statements and are commended for it.
Just as I'm called a Racist, Nazi, Gun Loving, Non Patriotic, Terrorist(Marine Corps 5 years) is perfectly OK with the Leftists, because I criticize and disagreeing with their beliefs.
Didn't the Leftist movement start out as Nonconformists, now the want everyone to conform to their Ideology or nonconformists will be labeled a "BIGOTS", only in AMERICA.

OK, I've been politically in the center for over 30 years and I don't think that Rush is racist, but he is an entertainer/commentator that does tend to say inflammatory things that sound racist and the NFL does not need to have someone like that as a minority owner. He is too divisive and polarizing, period. Thank God it is still up to 3/4 of the owners that would have to approve it.

Congrats Armando,

You got the hits you wanted on the blog in a bye week. What's next week? I can only hope it is Miami Dolphins Football related!

Everything now is reverse racism which is B.S....What about kanye being a racist when he snatches a little white girls award and is completely rude to her...no one pulls the race card on that. But, as soon as black person sees something that he doesn't like, it's a racial issue. I mean limbaugh is a douche and all, but I can't see him being a racist for wanting to own a team in a league that is 65% black..

And since when does al sharpton and jesse jackson , two of the biggest , f'n racists and extortionists and despicable human being s run this country ? People thought obama would bring this country together racially but quite the opposite is happening.
