I just got done reading an article on Shutdown Corner entitled "Baltimore backstabber Irsay comes out against Limbaugh's Bid". Who the hell rights this drivel. This quote is what drives me wild:
Here's a guy who was part of perhaps the most contemptible ownership moment in recent NFL history -- lying to the city of Baltimore for months before taking the team, without notice, to the Midwest -- and he's going to lecture others on ethics and comportment?
Wait a minute here? Does this guy know that Jim Irsay was in college at the team and has no part in running the team? That his dad was a drunk and overall lousy person according to most accounts? That he at no time was "lying to the city of Baltimore" and that he didn't take the team anywhere?I sure as hell think that he could teach some ethics to a supposed "journalist" that couldn't even research some basic facts about Jim Irsay, one of the classiest owners in the league, and one who has done everything to turn this franchise away from the sordid teams of the late 70's to mid-90's. I believe that Shutdown Corner should publish a letter of apology to Jim.
As a sidenote, I do not agree with Jim necessarily about the Limbaugh bid. If Limbaugh was a 100% owner and would be the mouth piece of the team, I could see some concerns, but in this sort of partnership, it seems like he is more like a capital partner that gets the prestige of owning an NFL team.
