Limbaugh bids on St. Louis Rams

by Greta Kaul           

            Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh has made a bid on the St. Louis Rams, Salon said Wednesday.

            Limbaugh lost his job as a sports commentator on ESPN after making racially charged comments about a Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Salon said.

            NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said it would be inappropriate for the owner of an NFL franchise to make the sort of controversial statements Limbaugh does, according to the Washington Post.

            The Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have publicly opposed the idea of Limbaugh owning the team, according to Salon.  In addition, several NFL players have said they would not play for a team owned by Limbaugh, the Washington Post said.

            The current team owners have not yet made a decision to sell control of the team, Salon said.
