NFL Union wants its multi-million-dollar salaries from someone other than Rush

The St Louis Rams have displaced the Detroit Lions as the laughingstock of the league, but apparently the only thing this group of loser would find embarrassing would be if Rush was part of the ownership group who bought out the team.

In an e-mail to the union’s executive committee on Saturday specifically addressing Limbaugh’s bid, Smith said, “I’ve spoken to the Commissioner [Roger Goodell] and I understand that this ownership consideration is in the early stages. But sport in America is at its best when it unifies, gives all of us reason to cheer, and when it transcends. Our sport does exactly that when it overcomes division and rejects discrimination and hatred.”

In case you’re wondering, the Rams have a dozen guys making over $3m a year and the lowest paid scrub on the team gets over $20k *per game* to warm the bench.
