Is the NFL in the back pocket of Barack Obama afterall?

I'm not even going to rehash the whole Rush Limbaugh episode on how Rush was in essence screwed, tarred and feathered by liberals in the National Football League and among sport writers and commentators. The truth always seem to have a funny way of coming out in the end. The Commissioner of the NFL Roger Goodell last month in Washington during a congressional hearing on brain injuries gave a lame excuse to Congressman Steve King about how the NFL doesn't want "controversy" to represent it's organization.



They're so many drama kings and basket cases in the NFL, a Soap Opera Network could be established and dedicated for the sole purpose of following the players and some of the NFL owners. We all know that the NFL is full of major Obama supporters. The players and ownwers dominated money and worked on Barack's campaign. When Rush said earlier this year that he wished for Obama's policies to fail, it stood to reason that Limbaugh was going to have a huge bullseye on his chest, when he became apart of a group that is trying to buy the Saint Louis Rams. To my knowledge, I can't recall any NFL commercial in which a sitting president was apart of or even was the star. If I'm wrong, maybe someone will correct me on it. This is just a thought. If Barack Obama was to star in a NFL commercial, wouldn't that kind of give the appearance that Rush Limbaugh was right about the NFL and it's support of Obama and their disdain for Limbaugh?This is what came across my television yesterday as I was watching the Cowboys and Raiders game.

Your disdain for President Obama is far reaching Tyrone. The "commercial" is not about Barack Obama. It's a "PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT", just like THIS ONE aired during the 2009 Major League Baseball All-Star Game that "featured" all five living U.S. Presidents.

As I stated before, I could care less if Limbaugh bought or owned a professional sports franchise. For the most part it was the players and the owners who voiced their disapproval of Limbaugh.

I'd bet you that if Limbaugh attempted to buy a Major League Baseball team he would have run into 10 times the opposition he did with the NFL, being that many MLB players come from south of the border.

Your fellow liberals angst towards Sarah Palin makes my "disdain" seem extremely mellow almost known existence allan I assure you . Also, why did you switch from football to baseball allen? I guess you couldn't prove me wrong after all, I understand. So with that settled, lets switch to baseball. Presidents throw out ceremonial first pitches, anybody who follows baseball knows that allen, so you aren't breaking any new ground with your comment. I've told you so many times, that deflection doesn't work with me allen, you would have been better off just saying that I was right.

Can you tell me exactly what Rush Limbaugh said negative about Hispanic baseball players or legal Hispanic imigrants allen. I'm all ears.

Why did you switch from President Obama to Sarah Palin??? You have a bad habit of not playing by your own rules...

CB;"Can you tell me exactly what Rush Limbaugh said negative about Hispanic baseball players or legal Hispanic imigrants allen. I'm all ears".

Are you claiming Limbaugh has to use "football" to spread his racist views??

Football, baseball, sports figures, legal immigrants, politicians, and all others aside, Limbaugh is viewed as a racist for his comments about minorities in general. (and rightfully so I might add)

Just recently, Limbaugh made no friends in the Hispanics community with his comments and attacks on now sitting Justice Sotomayor during her confirmation process.

On the health care debate, Limbaugh charged that American Latino civil groups were lobbying for illegal aliens to receive health care under the Obama plan.

In May of last year, Limbaugh called Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa a Shoe-Shine-Guy.

Limbaugh is hardly a "bridge builder" in the realm of race relations. So, when it comes to any opportunity where Limbaugh has to make himself "appear" to be racially sensitive... I HOPE HE FAILS!

I have no angst for the terminally stupid...

Palins book has been scrutinized and shown to have several errors, along with many accusations of outright lies. That being said, in my opinion errors such as, typo's, incorrect dates or time lines (with no intention to skew events), or other honest mistakes are excusable. Hell, I'll even give her a pass on those who accuse her of lying. Only those directly envolved would know the "he said, she said" truth anyway.

What's not excusable is when you use (or attempt to use) a direct quote from someone else, and then intentionally skew the context of the quote to suit a personal need.

In Palins latest "Rouge gaffe" we find This Stupidity.

I'm trying to understand why "some" conservatives are so enamored with Sarah Palin. Her book sales being through the roof show's that some people will buy into almost anything. I guess every profession has it's faction of whacked-out devotee's.
