Roman Oben speaks out against potential Limbaugh ownership of Rams
The interest of radio host Rush Limbaugh in purchasing the St. Louis Rams has sparked plenty of debate.
Former NFL lineman Roman Oben, who spent 12 years as a tackle in the NFL, has stated his own position on the matter in an opinion piece for the Washington Post.
In four paragraphs, Oben captures the tone and content of the arguments that will emerge if Limbaugh’s bid gains momentum.
In the end, it will be for Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez to decide whether to sell their stake in the team to Limbaugh and Dave Checketts, owner of the NHL’s St. Louis Blues. And then it will be for the owners to approve the transaction. Or not.
Regardless of how it all turns out, we predict a level of volume and rancor that could be pro sports’ equivalent to the health-reform town hall meetings.
And we’ll continue to provide a vehicle here for everyone who wants to voice their own views to do so.
