The Nation‘s sports writer Dave Zirin visits The Rachel Maddow Show to discuss Rush Limbaugh’s bid to buy the The St. Louis Rams football team. Limbaugh has a long history of making racist comments, one of which even prompted his resignation from a short stint as an analyst for ESPN in 2003. Given that the NFL is 70 percent African American, many players are voicing their disdain for Limbaugh and refusal to play for a team which he owns. Zirin thinks that Limbaugh should be blocked from owning the team to make a moral statement and preserve the NFL brand.
