HELD TO A HIGH STANDARD … WHO THE HELL ARE YOU KIDDING?
The NFL should be ashamed. This issue is greater than Rush Limbaugh and just to let you know, if you buckle to unfounded hate and race based agendas, you will be forever owned.
Will the NFL cave to race baiters and liars? It looks that way as the NFL and it’s commissioner Roger Goodell look like a bunch of spinless twits and are going to believe the misrepresentations of what others have said and not allow Rush Limbaugh to become an NFL owner.
Commissioner Roger Goodell said here Tuesday that it would be inappropriate for the owner of an NFL franchise to make the sort of controversial statements attributed in the past to conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.
“I’ve said many times before we’re all held to a high standard here, and I think divisive comments are not what the NFL is all about,” Goodell said at an NFL owners’ meeting.
Rush Limbaugh looks to become an NFL owner; however, in typical and predictable fashion the LEFT haters come out of the woodwork.
Just curious NFL, was it a high standard that has denied former NFL greats, who made the NFL what it is today, medical care for their disabilities? Is it also that “high standard” that is responsible for what looks like a lock out in the not too distant future?
Roger Goodell, who are you kidding? You are held to high standards! Where? Have you taken a good look at some of the other NFL owners? Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said he would not vote in favor of approving Limbaugh as an owner. He stated that he has met with Limbaugh once and considers him a nice guy, “but when you see the comments that are out there, I would not be comfortable.” When you see his comments out there? Like Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis does not have comments out there that more directly affect the NFL?
Here is a newsflash to the rich and elite known as the NFL owners … why don’t you just meet with Rush Limbaugh and ask him directly what he meant by any comments that you claim to have an issue with? Or is it his politics that you have an issue with?
Instead, the NFL, it’s owners and the powers that be would rather listen to so-called journalists with an agenda that are spreading slanderous lies! Who knew that the NFL was so cowardice! Rush Limbaugh has threatened to take legal action for the smear campaign against him.
And let us once again come back to the good commissioner’s comment where he said, “I’ve said many times before we’re all held to a high standard here. It would appear that The Corner has an issue as well with this statement as to what the NFL deems acceptable.
High standard? Is Michael Vick and example of that high standard Mr. Goodell? Because executing dogs and finding pleasure in it is among the highest standards we set in life. Oh, because Vick is now being mentored for the God-like Tony Dungy, that makes Vick ok now? Please! I can remember that Bill Clinton sought mentoring after Monica with the Rev, Jesse Jackson. No one believed that one either.
Here is an idea, why don’t you have Rush Limbaugh be mentored by Tony Dungy? Would that make it ok? It worked for the NFL and a dog killer.
How about Dante Stallworth? Is the NFL going to let this killer back in the league too? How is the NFL’s high standard going to deal with a DUI vehicular manslaughter?
Let’s see, you already let Ray Lewis back in the NFL with no questions asked who had been indicted for murder and aggravated assault but his attorney orchestrated a plea deal where Lewis plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.
Hey Roger, check it out … there is an NFL crimes blog for your “high standard” NFL.
As for owners, like let’s say Jim Irsay since he wanted to throw in his two cents. I guess it would be considered a “high standard” Mr. Irsay to leave Baltimore under the cloak of darkness with the Colts and move to Indianapolis? Hmm? Same holds true for Art Modell screwing the fans of Cleveland and moving the team to Baltimore and of course Raiders Al Davis moving the team all around California. These are all stand up and “high standard” moves.
As much as I love the NFL, I am inclined to agree with Macsmind and call for a Conservative boycott of the NFL. Roger Goodell and the NFL owners need to realize that bleeding heart, race baiting liberals do not watch the NFL.
Does these moonbats not have anything better to do on the tax payers dime? How is discussing whether Rush Limbaugh becomes an owner of the Rams doing the People’s work? Good grief. America, I beg you to send the bums packing in 2010.
UPDATE III: The LEFT Continues to thwart Limbaugh … Maybe not a good thing.
To the LEFT … Don’t ask for things, they might come true. One would think that the LEFT would want Limbaugh to become an owner of the Rams. Maybe, just maybe the new found hobby would take him away from Talk Radio. Alas, it appears that the LEFT has sabotaged Limbaugh in becoming a part owner. Good got the RIGHT and bad for Obama. Rush can now devote 100% of his time shredding Democrats, Liberals and Obama.
To the LEFT … I think you have awoke a sleeping GIANT!
