As you’ve undoubtedly heard by now, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh is putting together a bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams in partnership Dave Checketts. Believe it or not, some people seem to think that this isn’t such a good thing. Countless writers have chimed in with their thoughts on why an overtly racist windbag might not be the best fit for the NFL, and now Reverend Al Sharpton is is on the case. The opinions at KSK are varied as to whether Limbaugh’s bid to become the NFL’s newest owner should be considered, so let’s break this down with a little point/counterpoint.
Point: It’s a free country so why shouldn’t he have an opportunity to own an NFL franchise? Besides, trying to block Limbaugh’s bid would just give him more crap to bitch about on the radio.
Counterpoint: In a league dominated by black players and with its own racial problems, this is exactly the kind of owner we can ill afford to have.
Counter-counterpoint: HOLY SHIT, look at the tits on Susan Sarandon’s daughter!
At least that’s something we can all agree on.
Have at it in the comments, but please try to keep it relatively civil.
