With Rush Limbaugh out of the group Dave Checketts has formed to try to buy the St. Louis Rams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Limbaugh’s role could be filled by former Rams running back Marshall Faulk.
The news makes us wonder why Faulk wasn’t part of the group in the first place.
It also makes us wonder whether he’d be permitted to have an on-air role at NFLN if he acquires an equity position in one of the league’s franchises.
Meanwhile, Limbaugh suggested during his Wednesday show that the primary owner in the Checketts group — that is, the person owning at least 30 percent of the franchise — would not be Checketts himself, and might be George Soros.
So stay tuned while all of this continued to get sorted out.
