No Rush to Judgement


I really don't have a good answer for this question. I want to say no, but it is only my personal dislike for Rush Limbaugh talking, not whether or not I really think pundits should stay out of owner's boxes. For the record, I wouldn't want to see James Carville as an owner either, though.

It is possible that Limbaugh could be an effective owner, and at 0-4, the Rams obviously need something to change. However, I do wonder if Limbaugh's strong political views and past transgression discussing black quarterbacks would have a negative impact on the team, at least at first.

To me, football is like church, and I'm for the separation of church and state. I'd prefer my football games without politicians and political pundits, thank you very much. I like to forget about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, healthcare reform, and the economic crisis for the sixty minutes the Colts are on the field. But then the Colts are 4-0. If I were a Rams fan, I might want to forget about football for a while.

I guess I'm not really worried about it one way or the other. I'll just be content knowing it is the Rams and not the Colts who have to decide this question. I won't make any Rush to judgment.

I have always made a habit of putting my money where my mouth is. Therefore if Rush becomes a owner, I will never pay one cent to see a Rams game, and will not watch it on TV, therefore not seeing any commercials that pays the teams. And if I know who runs advertisments on TV for the Rams games, I will not purchase any of their products.
