    How about that discrace of a journalist Keith Oberlman ..... would he be allowed to buy in ????? Does he not say controversial things ?????

    LIBERAL DOUBLE STANDARDS are play again ......

    From hearing about this from a "couldn't care less" standpoint, it doesn't seem like any standards are being applied. Am I the only one reminded of Imus's nappy-head episode here?

    It sounds like nobody did anything illegal, and no one is being forced into anything or denied anything. Someone may have said stupid things, and the market forces, whether they be consumers, sponsors, members of a team, etc...are putting their money where their mouth is and not supporting somethng they don't like. The NFL is a private corporation, that by its nature tends to be very public and community orientated, and has chosen not to affiliate with Mr. Limbaugh for whatever reason they, or their members choose.

    I just said more than I said I would.....frankly, it doesn't affect me in the least bit, as does any sport, so I really don't give a FF. (not force-fetch)

    So you would say the same things if some high end golf clubs went back to keeping blacks out ..... right ??? They are private and can also choose to affiliate with whoever they want too ...... right ????

    Spineless owners? They don't owe Rush a thing. Why would they risk one nickel on his behalf?

    I find it laughable that anyone can with a straight face claim that Rush isn't a racist. If he isn't, he does a darn good job of imitating one.

    Buzz.....he might say some racially sensitive things....sensitive to folks that cry racist over the the simplest things, when in reality they are not.

    You have no proof positive of Limbaughs character. What's laughable, actually sad is a better word, is that someone like you would go down that road.

    I don't really think you have to be that sensitive to think Rush is a racist.

    You can bet the owners took their that into consideration. They lose money if some of their top player won't play and the fans don't attend. The owners could probably care less one way or another about Rush Limbaugh (maybe some do), but they do care about the money. Rush is bad for business, so he's out.

    Buzz? Blackstone? DNF? My bet is on the crickets.

    FWIW, I find nothing wrong with country clubs who won't let blacks in, Black Panthers who won't let whites in, Nation of Islam who won't let Jews in, Masonic lodges who won't let women in, sororities who won't let men in, or the NFL who won't let Rush in. It's called freedom of association.

    Right. It may not be moral, and we may not agree with it, but a private club is a private club.

    If a golf club chose not to admit minorities, and the paying members or sponsors were outraged and dropped their membership, the club goes under. Same thing here. No laws are broken, people have just spoken with their wallets. Just like Imus. Wonder if he's called Rush to welcome him to the club?

    What'dya bet Hew? You lose. Not only did you lose your bet, even worse, you have me agreeing with you!

    They don't need proof positive. What's in his heart and what he says may be two different things, but who knows.

    I grew up in Detroit. My dad was a fire fighter in one of the worst neighborhoods in the city. He was a block away from the start of the 1967 riots. I worked in the inner city for about 5 years, it wasn't pretty. I have seen some things that would keep you up at night. I can tell ya, my dad was racist. All his friends on the department were racist. I was raised racist and was racist for almost half my life. Growing up in a tough city like Detroit that has serious race issues, I can understand those feelings. But I can't understand a guy like Rush fanning the flames.

    When you consider some of the chumps who are owners in the NFL,Al Davis, Bill Bidwell, The Irsay jerks, Rush would be a great improvement .
