    Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk radio host, said he would be interested in buying the St. Louis Rams if the team were for sale. "The Rams would be a great team to have," Limbaugh said in a phone interview from his Palm Beach, Fla., studio. "I have a lot of friends in ownership in the NFL, and my desire to get involved has not been a secret." Limbaugh grew up in Cape Girardeau but said that does not play into his thinking about the Rams. "This is a business decision," he said. And even for Limbaugh, whose new eight-year syndication deal with Premiere Radio Networks is estimated to be worth $300 million, buying into the NFL would be a stretch. "I have no debt whatsoever. This would require changing that," he said. "There is a whole lot of interest in the Rams with the NFL being a business entity that a lot of people want to be involved in. But it's becoming a billionaires' club."

    If that happened, the Rams' offense would become way too easy to defend. I mean... how long would it take opposing coaches to figure out that every play the Rams run goes to the right?

    LOL I love you Avenger haha, that was great. To me, he seems like he'd put a lot into it like Jerry Jones and of course in a bad way. But who the hell knows...


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    Does Rush still play his show theme with music by the Pretenders?

    Oh the flip side, if this sale were to happen- at least the injured players would never have to worry about a shortage of painkillers at Rams Park.

    " SIGH..." IS RIGHT.

    A little disappointed with some of the responses on this board. Kinda expected it from the idiots on the PD board, but not here.

    Just for the record, how many of us knew, (or CARED) what Rosenbloom's and/or Georgia's political leanings were.

    One thing I love about this country is at least for the last while we seem to have been split 50-50 politically. Keeps everyone honest.

    Rush is a showman. Period. It's got nothing to do with politics, really.

    And at least he'd care about winning.

    Might be nice to have an owner who really cares about winning. As for his addiction to pain killers, I think I recall a soon-to-be HOF QB who had a similar problem. Sounds like a lot of double standards here.

    Yep...I see the finger hovering over the red button. By the way, I used to listen to Rush when he was a run of the mill disc jockey spinning top 40 records in Sacramento California in the 70's.
