Bryan Burwell


St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bryan Burwell says the National Football League should “think twice” before it considers allowing radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh to own a franchise. Limbaugh is reportedly a finalist to be the new owner of the St. Louis Rams.

Burwell flatly states in his Wedneday column that the NFL should bar Limbaugh because he is a racist and he brings up a couple of  on-air quotes by the talk show host to make his case. Limbaugh said,


“Look, let me put it to you this way: The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”


Limbaugh also said,


“I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: Slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back. I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”


Seventy percent of NFL players are black. Burwell points out these men are descendants of slaves. He says Limbaugh’s money is green but his words are “colored.” With hate.

Burwell also says he is not campaigning against Limbaugh because of his politics. In fact, Burwell points out Limbaugh’s political views are mainstream in the NFL and, “He would fit right in with the exclusive boys club of ultra-wealthy, ultra-conservative white men who rule the ownership suites.”

    One,Rush will not own the Rams,he will just be an investor.Two, he will not make any of the final decisions.You should the present the facts instesad of making conclusions about Rush being a racist.I guess calling the NFL ownership group (” Boys club of the ultra wealthy”) is not a racist comment are they 70% Black.Probably not they just make the players Ultra Wealthy.I Guess the Boys Club as you put should all join With Sharpton and Jackson and all become welfare Pimps and be the first of there group to apply for the new healthcare reform package.

  3. Bob Says:
