Everyone remember Rush and his comments about Philadelphia’s Donovan McNabb? In 2003 Limbaugh was forced to resign from ESPN’s Sunday Night Football broadcast after saying of McNabb: “I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well.”
And then later, Rush Limbaugh’s bid to buy the St. Louis Rams ran into trouble within the NFL power brokers when Colts owner Jim Irsay vowed to vote against him and commissioner Roger Goodell said the conservative commentator’s previously “divisive” comments would not be tolerated by any NFL owner.
So, he will take any shot at NFL he can.
