    Could have been posted in the sports section, but I think this is more related to todays society and will get more attention in this section. :p

    "I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well," Limbaugh said. "There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."

    I happen to agree with Limbaugh. I think Donovan is a better than average QB, but you are beginning to see just how good he is when his supporting cast isn't what it used to be. He's a classy guy, but I don't believe Rush's comments were racially motivated. These are unfortunately just the facts of life these days. He wouldn't have gotten nearly the amount of attention he has had he been a white QB.

    In fact, I just don't think his stats have been overly impressive throughout his career. Rather average if you ask me, but people will speak of him as if he is the second coming of God.

    Rush just resigned over these comments. Of course, he "resigned" after Al Sharpton called ESPN and threatened a boycott.

    It is a sad commentary when a person can't use the word black without losing their job. Funny how nobody cares that people like Jessie Jackson can threaten any company he wants with a black demonstration to shut them down if they don't hire who he wants. Which is worse?

    Ah, whatever, I'm on Rush's side, only because I believe in pretty much entirely free speech. You should be able to say whatever you want within reason. I think so, anyway.

    I wonder if the great Affirmative Action is involved here as well. Should it have been that Rush was black and made a comment about that WHITE person, do you really think this would be happening??? don't even get me going on this subject.
