|Limbaugh: Said to favor a "conservative" game. Likes plays to develop on the right -- far right. |
A few days after Rush Limbaugh publicly announced
his intention of buying the St. Louis Rams (and just 48 hours after Limbaugh again made another borderline derogratory/racist comment about black athletes
), a pair of African-American football players say they would refuse to play for a team owned by the conservative radio host.
Mathias Kiwanuka loves his former defensive coordinator, but the Giants' defensive end says he will never play for Spagnuolo's Rams if Rush Limbaugh purchases the team. Kiwanuka and the New York 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.
"I am not going to draw a conclusion from a person off of one comment," said Kiwanuka. "But when it is time after time after time and there's a consistent pattern of disrespect and just a complete misunderstanding of an entire culture that I am a part of, I can't respect him as a man."
