Rush Limbaugh is no stranger to controversy.

Every word uttered by the pugnacious pill-popper ignites a firestorm that even Beelzebub would want no part of.

It is that same polarizing quality that has denied the jolly racially intolerant fat man the distinct privilege of owning an NFL franchise.

Caving to public pressure applied by current players, the NFLPA, and civil rights dunderhead Al Sharpton, Dave Checketts has dropped the Limbaugh from his bidding team, a move that underscores the level of toxicity associated with the shock jock.

Earlier this week, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsey predicted that an association with Limbaugh would hamper anyone seeking team ownership, claiming that it “would be met with significant opposition.”

“I met Rush only once,” said Irsey to media during a fall owners meeting. “I, myself, couldn’t even consider voting for him. When there are comments that have been made that are inappropriate, incendiary and insensitive…our words do damage, and it’s something that we don’t need.”

Of the 32 league owners, three-quarters would have had to vote in favor of the potential buyout in order for Limbaugh to become a team owner.

In Racist Rush’s absence, Checketts  will have to work diligently to find an adequate replacement with enough cash to get back into the bidding run.
