  • SI - Players would boycott Rush's Rams


    Black Players Would Boycott Rush's Rams
    Mathias Kiwanuka loves his former defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, but the Giants' defensive end says he will never play for Spagnuolo's Rams if Rush Limbaugh purchases the team. Kiwanuka and the Jets' Bart Scott made it clear Thursday that they would never play for the Rams or any team owned by the controversial conservative radio host. "All I know is from the last comment I heard, he said in (President) Obama's America, white kids are getting beat up on the bus while black kids are chanting 'right on,'" Kiwanuka told The Daily News. "I mean, I don't want anything to do with a team that he has any part of. He can do whatever he wants, it is a free country. But if it goes through, I can tell you where I am not going to play."

    Although to be fair a white kid did get beat, almost to death, by a gang of black kids on the bus. So I don't see how that's a controversial statement.

    But that's not the point. The point is I was afraid we would lose out on some players if Rush was a part of ownership. It looks like that would happen.
