The item on Rush Limbaugh's potential Rams ownership stake generated relatively little heat on the blog.
Kiwaunuka: "He can do whatever he wants, it is a free country. But if it goes through, I can tell you where I am not going to play. ... I am not going to draw a conclusion from a person off of one comment, but when it is time after time after time and there's a consistent pattern of disrespect and just a complete misunderstanding of an entire culture that I am a part of, I can't respect him as a man."
Scott: "What he said (about Donovan McNabb) was inappropriate and insensitive, totally off-base. He could offer me whatever he wanted, I wouldn't play for him. ... I wouldn't play for Rush Limbaugh. My principles are greater and I can't be bought."
This is all a little speculative because the Rams haven't been sold and we're not sure if the group featuring Limbaugh as a potential minority owner will emerge as the leading candidate. But if it does happen, the majority owner would be wise to tackle such perceptions directly.
The Rams will have a hard enough time attracting free agents without veteran players swearing off St. Louis based on resistance to one of the owners.
