So Many Questions

So little going on, so little news coming out of Rams Nation, yet so many questions to be answered!

  1. Was it REALLY necessary to get rid of Bruce?
  2. Was it wise to sign Trent Green for so much money?
  3. Will Al Saunders bring back the offensive spark?
  4. Will Marc Bulger actually play like he's worth that hefty contract?
  5. Will the Rams defense find any help in free agency, a player that's not long in the tooth?
  6. Will the Rams immediately try for a rookie who will make an immediate impact on the defense or will they be lured by a "pretty toy"?
  7. Will the atmosphere at Rams Park be different with a fresh start in 2008?
  8. Will the fans come to the first game with a chip on their shoulders?
  9. Will the Rams pull themselves out of the pit of the West or will they continue to be stuck in the quagmire?

So many questions that we all must sit and wait for the answers.

Don't you just hate the off season? Well, I guess it's better than enduring another season like 2007 though.

I Have One Thing to Say to the St. Louis Media


It's time you get off your high horses and stop telling the Rams fans how we're suppose to feel, react, and behave! Stop telling us to stop living in the past and get on with life.

First off, you are not fans. You are talking heads that get paid to cover the local teams in your area. You don't know the first thing about what it means to be the "little guy". We as fans can all be guaranteed of one thing, you were not fans prior to the Rams arriving to your so called "Sports City" of St. Louis! And you are not fans now.

Your payment to show some semblance of loyalty does not qualify you to tell us how to act. Most of us Rams fans, I mean true blue, die hard, bleed blue and gold fans were following this team probably when most of you were still in diapers or maybe potty training. The fans don't get paid to be loyal, they just are.

Secondly, it's not about living in the past, especially with regards to #80. It's about loyalty, honesty, and respect! None of which the Rams organization has shown. Take a look at Green Bay, you think Favre would ever be treated in this manner? And do you think their fans would be told to stop living in the past?

Third, don't give us the "it's a business" crap! Believe it or not, some businesses actually practice loyalty, honesty, and respect for their employees. It's not as uncommon as you would like for us to believe.

Isaac Bruce was disrespected and lied to by the organization that he bent over backwards for, for 14 years, and every fan should be outraged!

So, if you find the disdain, disgust, hurt, anger, and outrage being exhibited by the fans annoying, get over it!

You get paid to report the sports news not to tell us how to feel!
