It didn’t take long for the ownership group hoping to buy the Rams to confirm a report that Rush Limbaugh is no longer part of their team.
In a statement released Wednesday evening to the Associated Press, the group’s leader, St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts, said that Limbaugh’s participation had become a complication in the group’s efforts and
the bid will move forward without him.
Limbaugh was to be a limited partner and it’s unclear how significant his financial stake in the group was going to be.
What was clear was the NFL’s stance on the issue, as enumerated by Commissioner Roger Goodell.
And it didn’t take long for Checketts to hear that message and decisively act.
As we hear from players all the time right around when free agency approaches: It’s a business.
