Limbaugh Could Soon be NFL Team Owner

Published October 6, 2009

The razor-tongued shock jock Rush Limbaugh, fired by from his NFL analyst gig six years ago for racially controversial comments, could soon become the owner of an NFL expansion squad.

CBS Sports reports that the well-heeled duo of Limbaugh and St. Louis Blues Chairman Dave Checketts are among three groups that have submitted bids to purchase the St. Louis Rams. “It's unknown whether the bid includes the 40 percent owned by Stan Kroenke, or the 60 percent currently held by the two children of the late Georgia Frontiere,” S.I.com reports.

In 2003, Limbaugh was a commentator on ESPN’s football pregame show, but his rant that Philadelphia Eagles’ multi-Pro Bowl-winning quarterback Donovan McNabb was so highly praised because he was Black, cost him his job.
