Al Sharpton doesn't want Rush Limbaugh to buy Rams

October 12, 2009 | 12:24 pm

Sharpton Well, it looks as if at least one person doesn't want Rush Limbaugh to become an NFL owner.

Former presidential candidate Rev. Al Sharpton wants the NFL to stop Limbaugh's efforts to buy the St. Louis Rams. Limbaugh announced last week that he and St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts are partnering in a bid to buy the struggling team.

Sharpton, who sent a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell today, said he was "disturbed" by Limbaugh's bid to buy the Rams based on "anti-NFL" comments the conservative talk show host has made.

NFL Players executive director DeMaurice Smith also opposes Limbaugh as a team owner.
