Rush Limbaugh and Dave Checketts Bid For Rams

The NFL confirmed Rush Limbaugh and Dave Checketts have placed a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams. This is the most excited I have been about the Rams since their 3 game winning streak to close out the 2006 NFL season. Word is Checketts has gathered a group including Limbaugh that have enough finances to make a bid to purchase at least 60 percent of the Rams. Forbes has listed the Rams franchise as valued at slightly over 900 million recently. Today on 101 ESPN they had on a CNN money expert who said in the current economy the Rams may only fetch 700 million, that maybe why all of a sudden we have heard there have been 3 bids made to purchase the Rams.

This would be the best case for Rams fans in our attempt to keep them in St. Louis for a long time. Since Checketts group owns the St. Louis Blues he would not be allowed to own the Rams and move them out of St. Louis unless the Blues were out of St. Louis as well. The lease issue of the Edward Jones Dome still hangs over our heads for now but the bigger issue is keeping the team in St. Louis and getting a strong ownership group that cares about the NFL, the St. Louis Rams, and the city of St. Louis. In Dave Checketts we would be in good hands. I am not sure why people are already speaking out against Rush Limbaugh as an owner the current owners of the Rams are nowhere to be found. Remember Bill Bidwell, we could do worse. Let's hope Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez sell to the right group for Rams fans.
