    Proud of the Rams for not backing down.

    Tripplet has always been a terrible ref. One reason I could never play in the NFL today? I would have body SLAMMED Triplett. Just sayin.

    Refs clearly went after the Rams today time after time after time. I fully expect Fisher to make a lot of noise on the competition committee and there needs to be some form of reparations or a public apology or something. What I just saw happen on that field was absolute bullcrap.

    It'd be nice if Fisher would make some noise but is there any example of him doing that in the past? I just don't see that coming from him. There have been some bad games before and he never said anything about it; at least not publicly.

    Whatever,,, we got shafted on several calls.

    My favorite was the 15 yard penalty for "verbally abusing an official". Never heard that one before,,, but I've heard massive verbal abuse of officials in almost every NFL game I think I've ever watched.

    I'm happy we came to this street fight ready to throw the first punch.

    Seadderall is the most penalized team in the league.

    "At least not publicly" would be the key.

    Fellas...I know what you are saying, Seattle was running their mouths and acting like punks the entire game. However, retaliating is going to get you caught every time. Say what you want, the Rams hurt themselves regardless of the ineptitude of the officials (which was atrocious).

    If you watched the whole game, then maybe you would have a different opinion. It did get out of hand, but the Rams were just as chippy as the Seahawks. When physical teams play each other, no one backs down from contact. The refs had to make calls to control the game, and since they were in Seattle, the calls were against the Rams.

    He's not talking about post game pressers. He's talking about the Competition committee, where questions should be asked about the competence of the referees. About measures that should be taken to ensure referees don't lose control of what's happening on the field, like the Carolina game, or today. Interestingly enough, we had the referee team from the Carolina game again, and they took care of the chippiness early, like they had been warned not to let it happen again.

    What the NFL really needs is some game officials with some balls, that won't be intimidated by the home crowd.

    We wanted culture change. We got culture change.

    Change culture, clean up later. I don't mind it one bit.

    Rams' youth + Fisher's style of coaching + NFL officials throwing flags based on a teams reputation = bad news.

    I'm pissed but i'm ready to move on and talk about coming back next season a year older,more talented and hungry.

    Sorry, I don't buy that for a second. There are plenty of games that are physical and heated that don't get like that. And to say the refs keep "picking on" the Rams is just an excuse. The Rams could let the Seahawks be chippy and they themselves not retaliate. There's a difference between playing hard through the whistle and just being stupid and letting your emotions get the better of you. Just because the refs aren't taking control of things doesn't mean the players can't do it themselves. And if the refs called it Seattle's way because they were the home team, why did I continually hear how the refs were screwing the Rams all season even when they played at home? The refs don't have an agenda against the Rams. The Rams do it to themselves. They've built a reputation for committing a lot of penalties so they look for them. Anything that's even close will get called. The best way to stop that is to stop committing penalties- especially the kind that are after the whistle.

    Well, I liked the nastiness the Rams bring to the table week in and week out. They had nothing but pride to play for today, and they weren't gonna roll over. I love the tenacity they bring. I guarantee that hawks team is grateful for the bye week. They are gonna be sore as hell. Especially Golden Taint. He played well, but he took a beating. All in all, I want teams to know the Rams aren't soft. They will be known as a nasty physical team.

    I LOL at a lot of posts in this thread. Have you guys seen a Jeff Fisher team play before he got to STL? This was one of the few bads that came with Fishers hiring. Fishers team never stop at the whistle. It's who they are. You couple that with this new no-nonsense reffing style, you're going to get calls. I'm not giving excuses, but this is not surprising. Now the magnitude of today was a bit unusual, and I will say it wasn't only STL. But let's be real. When Fisher is our coach, you know they are going to get to the ball, and they are going to be very angry when they get there.

    This isn't a soft Rams team. And sometimes, when you have a team as young as the Rams, and a coaching style that Fisher and his staff presents, things can get heated quickly, because sometimes, young guys don't know when to stop. This isn't concerning to me. I actually like it. Rams and Soft won't be said in the same sentence anymore. This thing will get cleaned up, but we as a fanbase should probably get used to some of the penalties. We won't stop at the whistle, and I don't forsee Fisher changing that.

    In all his years on the CC, I've never heard him talk about accountability for the refs. The only thing I've ever heard from Fisher about the CC are changes to the rules- mostly concerning safety. I've never heard of ref accountability being brought up by the CC. If the refs are really that bad, he could publicly say some things need to change without naming anyone. He wouldn't get in trouble from the NFL for saying that some policies need to be implemented to ensure the refs are held accountable for their performances to protect the integrity of the game.

    Nah. Gonna dis-agree. Been watching football for 40 years. The NFL has a problem. The refs are bad now. Maybe it's too many rules, whatever it is it really sucks.

    You can be nasty and physical without all the stupid penalties, though.

    I like it too. My frustrating comes from uneven refereeing. I realize it's a tough job and they're not perfect but there's a line in the sand. When you are calling things that unevenly, it's going to be maddening. I can take the occasional personal foul because we are a chippy team...hell, we're a tad dirty. But it boils my blood hwne the refs are throwing the flags every time there's pushing and talking...and only calling one side.
