If Rush Limbaugh succeeds in purchasing the St. Louis Rams with former Knicks president and Madison Square Garden GEO Dave Checketts, there's a good chance the team won't be any good. Black NFL players have said they'd refuse to play for the team because of Limbaugh's racist comments. In 2003, Limbaugh resigned from ESPN after saying that Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media were "very desirous that a black quarterback do well." Now, McNabb says, "If he's rewarded to buy them, congratulations to him. But I won't be in St. Louis anytime soon." As Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka put it, "There's a consistent pattern of disrespect," Rush's comments are "flat-out racist," and if the purchase goes through, "I can tell you where I am not going to play." Jets' Bart Scott said, "He's a jerk," adding, "He could offer me whatever he wanted, I wouldn't play for him... I wouldn't play for Rush Limbaugh. My principles are greater and I can't be bought."
