    To be honest, I wanted Donald more than Clowney. As disruptive, better fit and costs a #13 instead of the #2. Great draft Rams!

    My opinion on Donald changed about a month ago. My mock drafts posted on this site even have me taking Donald in the first.
    Perfect situation for Donald in St.Louis

    When Fisher and Williams were watching this on tape, I can see Williams turning to Fisher and saying: "I think I just figured out a new way to defend the read-option."

    It reminded me of a Jack Youngblood highlight I saw way back in the day vs. the Patriots.

    Handoff, Youngblood wraps up the QB, almost seems to say "You don't have the ball!", throws him aside, then tackles the runningback. It was glorious.

    @Username good call. You nailed it back before I really thought of him as a Rams choice

    Pretty cool trip down memory lane. I had never heard of Donald before Username posted that. Maybe in one of @jrry32 mocks but not sure. Anyway, pretty funny how I was against the idea at first but started to warm to it. Pretty hard to deny all the logic being presented by User, Jrry, and I think Jjab.

    Once again, clear demonstration of why the Rams should not listen to me when it comes to the draft.

    Alright smart guys - who's your next lock?

    Yes props to the resident Dick Puncher. He got this one right on the screws.

    From this thread I learned that RFIP is no longer a member here...and for that i'm sad. Why he's no longer with us isn't my business and i'm not commenting on past or present administrators. Moderating isn't always easy or fun.

    Bannings aren't up to one individual anymore. It's a process that involves the input of several.

    Back in the old days, you could blame me for everything though. :LOL:

    Technically, one could argue the banning IS up to one individual... the ban-ee... ;)

    Yep. It's a long process that you wouldn't want to witness - kind of like watching sausage and laws made.

    I wasn't blaming anyone. When I was moderating on a post-NFL.com forum I was part of a group decision to suspend someone who was a friend of mine. 3 years later he still blames me in entirety for his 48hr time-out. :rolleyes:. The right decision isn't always fun.

    After confirming that I have no posts in this thread.....


    I was totally on board with Donald from the start, and wanted him even before anyone else, I knew he would be amazing. Prove me wrong.:whistle:

    There were others who couldn't let go of the fight either and kept baiting about it. And that's unfortunately not entirely gone even though RFIP is.

    I put that out just to be fair about it, and I'm going to leave that at that. Not going to say anything further on it.
