Limbaugh dropped from NFL bid


St. LOUIS, MO (ABC) -- Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is out as a potential part owner of the St. Louis Rams.

Other members of a group interested in buying the NFL franchise have dropped him.

The head of the players association and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell have expressed reservations about Limbaugh.. who's made controversial remarks in the past about African-American football players.

St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts, who is heading the bidding group, said Limbaugh's involvement had become a complication.
