Limbaugh: good riddance

Hardcore race baiter and alleged pill popper Rush Limbaugh was kicked out by his own potential ownership group's bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams proving there is a (football) God.

Limbaugh was drop kicked by the head of the group, the respected Dave Checketts.

Rush has been Rushed.

This is a great day for those of us who see sports as a unifying force and not a dividing one.

Oh, go ahead, Limbaugh lickers, post your comments about how people have made up quotes or taken them out of context or call everyone a racist. Fire away, you brave anonymous message board flamers. That's what you do.

(This is said without malice and is my opinion: I believe almost any quote attributed to Limbaugh when it comes to race because he's said any number of ugly and hateful things. Just my opinion and belief.)

Limbaugh represents everything that's wrong with how people relate to one another today.

Now Limbaugh will manipulate the situation -- and manipulate his followers -- into believing that his lack of acceptance by the NFL is a conspiracy by the liberal media, feminists, blacks, ACORN, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, global warming believers, Oprah and Mexicans against him.

It's not about Limbaugh's politics, it's about Limbaugh himself. He's a bad person. That's it. End of story.

There are (and have been) current NFL owners who are horrible people but that doesn't mean the league has to let more in, especially more like Limbaugh.

Limbaugh's also a coward who sends his robotic fans to various media and message boards to do his dirty work for him.

You can't have it both ways, Rush-bo. You can't say numerous hateful things then try to back away from them or claim one or two things attributed to you aren't accurate. You don't get the benefit of the doubt on race.

So good riddance.

Hopefully the sports world will never hear from you again.

Limbaugh: good riddance

 this is a response to your contridiction and the point you prove on why limbaugh should not be allowed to own a team.

"I am writing an email to CBS Sportsline today and cancelling my membership.  I will never visit this website again.  I will never be commissioner of another league hosted by this site nor will I even play in a league hosted by this site.  I am a team owner of a league hosted on here and I will let all of them know immeidately that I am done for the season."

This is the same reason why Rush will not be allowed in the NFL.

As you can see rustyangel, when people put their political beliefs out and single out the other half you loose customers. Rush does this on a daily basis against liberals/democrats. Because of this it would be in the NFL's best interest to not allow it because fans who are single out will not purchase your product.

I hope you learned a valuable lesson today. PEACE

Limbaugh: good riddance

Ok, a couple of points about the defamation "lawsuit" that folks keep saying Limbaugh can pursue:

1. If a person makes a statement of opinion as opposed to fact, the statement may not support a cause of action for defamation. Whether a statement is viewed as an expression of fact or opinion can depend on whether or not the person making the statement would be perceived by the community as being in a position to know whether or not it is true. Anyone believe Freeman would know if this stuff is actually false?

2. A similar defense is "fair comment on a matter of public interest". Limbaugh makes himself and his pursuits a matter of public interest through his show. If Freeman, or anyone else, has the opinion that something about Limbaugh is true, it's hard to prove actual defamation.

3. Public figures, which Limbaugh unfortunately is, have a much higher burden of proof. With this, they must prove actual malice.

4. Lastly, a plaintiff is considered "libel-proof" (written defamation is libel) when his reputation has been irreparably stained by prior publications. At the point the challenged statements are published, then, illustrating that a plaintiff already had a poor reputation in the community diminishes any claim for damages resulting from defamatory statements, meaning that the plantiff couldn't recover more than nominal damages for subsequent defamatory statements.  It's safe to say Limbaugh's overall rep is poor.

This was a business decision where one party chose to go in a different direction from the other. Limbaugh has as strong a case against anyone as Obama would have against him.

Freeman has been licking his chops to write this opinion. Freeman is a race baiter himself so not surprising he would be in full force. Freeman is correct on a few things but im not sure his reason for why rush was kicked from the group is correct. Looking at this from a marketing perspective Rush would be bad for the NFL and the most importantly the St. Louis Rams. Rush singles out all Democrats and Liberals so there is no way they could cheer on his team. Rush calls Democrats and Liberals names on a daily basis. That cuts out atleast 50% of your customers. Freeman is correct about its nothing to do with his politics but him in general. Most everyone knows that most if not all owners are consevatives and they dont care as long as they treat all their fans the same. It would be impossible for rush to this because he has an audience everyday that he has to associate to.

No evidence required?

The two quotes are fake.  What are the "numerous hateful things" Limbaugh has said?  I've got to go back to your post to remember your name to discount anything I ever see again from you.  Conclusions without evidence, whatta guy.

Hey Superman, why don't you listen for a while. You're another person who just shouts about how he spews hate, but you've never listened to the show. Why not listen for a week and make an informed opinion. Or are you just afraid you might start agreeing with him.

I have to make a retraction. Mr. Freeman has already posted an article in regards to Soros and I have to admit that it was a balanced article. Although the tone of it was much more subdued at least he did report this.

In the above post I called into question Freemans integrity on this issue and I have been proven wrong. For that I admit I was wrong and apologize and admit that I respect Freeman for the balance in his report.

Although I am still upset at the tone of the Limbaugh blog I will give credit where it is do, admit I was wrong and apologize in the open.

Just curious, how much have you listened to his show. Yourself and others in the media like you who make claims about what he says don't listen to his show. You may read websites that talk about what he supposedly said, but you never listen. I challenge you to listen three hours a day for a whole week. What you'll find out is he wants every American to be the best he or she can possibly be and to realize their God given potential, no matter their race, color or creed. See, I know this, because I listen. If you can't listen, go to his website. There's a transcript there of every word of the show, every day. You may disagree with his politics, but you'll find he is in no way a racist. And I love how you throw out that he's a bad person. Do you know him? Have you ever met him? What is that based on? What he's said? You don't know what he's said because you don't listen. And if you choose not to listen or read what he actually said, and continue to espouse your uninformed opinion of him, you become the bigot.
