    whatever you think about Rush/Rams, this is bad for the league

    you have a majority white fanbase cheering for a majority black group of players, NBA used to be like this, but eventually white people moved on to other sports and here in the south, NASCAR

    you cannot give away tickets to the Atlanta Hawks or Charlotte Bobcats unless you've got some black friends

    more and more, I hear people saying they only like college football, not the NFL, with semi-racist whites claiming the players are better citizens

    either way, the NFL is at risk of being marginalized whether it's justified or not, personally I'd bet on baseball surpassing the league in revenues within 15 years

    Rush words are enough to get him banned from purchasing an NFL team than Michael Vick who can come back after torturing animals.

    15% of NFL TV viewers are black, 65% of the players

    there's never been a sport in US history that held its success where the players and fans had such a wide disparity in ethnicity

    it's losing ground to NASCAR quickly here in the south
