Goodell on Rush: "Divisive comments are not what NFL's about"

Goodell on Rush: "Divisive comments are not what NFL's about"
Posted by Tom Curran on October 13, 2009 2:20 PM ET

This afternoon in Boston, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell chipped in with a "fat friggin' chance" when asked about Rush Limbaugh's prospects of being part of an ownership group trying to purchase the St. Louis Rams.

Speaking in a press conference in a South Boston hotel, Goodell first referred to the purchase process saying it was still in the preliminary stages.

"At this point in time we'll continue our process which is to allow the Rams to decide if they're going to sell and who they'll sell to," Goodell said. "And then at some point, the NFL will be engaged and we'll [examine] whatever ownership group is put forth through our process [of vetting the group]."

Asked if he had any response to the surge in player opposition to Limbaugh's potentially becoming an owner, Goodell said, "The comments that Rush made about Donovan [McNabb] I disagree with very strongly. [They were] polarizing comments that we don't think reflect accurately on the NFL or our players and I obviously do not believe that those comments are positive and are divisive. I disagree with those comments very strongly and I've told the players that."

Goodell was asked what his reaction would be if a present owner aired commentary like Limbaugh's. Would he then have an issue?

"We're all held to a high standard here and divisive comments are not what the NFL's all about," said Goodell. "I would not want to see those kind of comments from people who are in a responsible position in the NFL, no. Absolutely not."
