In light of Limbaugh: Does ownership matter?

News that Rush Limbaugh is part of a potential Rams ownership group leads to a natural question: To what extent does owner's identity positively or negatively affect the way you, as a fan, might feel about a team?

We know where Bryan Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch stands.

Fans are already highly critical of ownership for decisions relating to football, but coaches and players generally become the faces of organizations.

I suspect people would say one thing and do another, that a winning organization would largely transcend personal feelings toward an individual owner, within reasonable limits. But if you felt the way Burwell feels about a potential owner, could you support the team anyway?
