NFL union chief urges players to speak out about Rush Limbaugh

ST. LOUIS — Not only has NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith complained to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell about the potential sale of the Rams to an ownership group that includes conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, he has urged NFL players to speak out on the issue as well.

"I have asked our players to embrace their roles not only in the game of football but also as players and partners in the business of the NFL," Smith said in a statement. "They risk everything to play this game. They understand that risk and they live with that risk and its consequences for the rest of their life. We also know that there is an ugly part of history and we will not risk going backwards, giving up, giving in, or lying down to it.

  1. Actually I think that the NFL and Limbaugh go good together. They both exist for entertainment. They both have that win at all costs mentality. Neither has any shame. LOTS of NFL players probably abuse pain killers. Didn't that dog killer Vick actually get signed by some team?
