Al Sharpton to NFL: Block Rush Limbaugh bid for Rams - USATODAY.com NEW YORK (AP) â The Rev. Al Sharpton wants the National Football League to block conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh from bidding on the St. Louis Rams. Sharpton sent a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Monday. He said Limbaugh has been divisive and "anti-NFL" in some of his comments. Just because you do not like his politics, does not mean he would not be a good owner.
