    Certainly. But it was never acceptable (here) to bash a Rams player unless said player was purposefully sabotaging the team. And I can't remember anyone doing that outside of Craig Dahl. lol. When you start getting into a sliding scale of acceptable vitriol towards players (or coaches) based on their production, salary, draft slot, or all three ... then you make it incredibly difficult for the moderators because what's good for one player isn't good for another based on their subjective worth? Bleh. It's better to just unilaterally apply a standard. You don't have to love all players. Just keep the hatred in and let it eat away at your eternal soul for the betterment of the board. That's not asking too much. It's only your soul.

    Well said.

    Yeah, it feels like real fans in here.

    I also like the fact that people will talk to a fan from so cal. The stl vs la bit is ridiculous.

    Well, if anything I've said has been taken by any as bashing Robinson or any other Ram, I apologize. What others have said, I have no control over (my attempts at implanting brain microchips have met with unreasonable resistance.)

    I would have gone elsewhere, but Robinson is a Ram now, and I can't change that until the funding for my time machine comes in. Then we'll have to invent a whole new set of ethics as to whether or not one can change who is a Ram and who is not through time travel. Does anyone object to me making it so the Rams don't draft Eric Crouch?

    You're not thinking outside the box. You can always go back in time and convince him that being a wide receiver is the correct career choice. The 8th or 9th grade is probably a good place to start.

    I dunno... hanging around high schoolers and haranguing them about career choices is generally regarded as creepy if there's not an existing relationship yet.

    And frankly, it's a lot of work over a 3rd round pick.

    Nah man. That's not what I'm saying and I don't think any of the other long timers are either. You know the difference between discussing a point and throwing crap on the walls. And you also know how not to get in a crap flinging match. I just encourage everyone to keep that at the forefront of their brain when posting. That's all.

    Naw, I think we ought to make this place just like all the others...

    Your brother's breath is so bad the government wants to use him as a secret weapon.

    When they were handing out brains, you were the first in the queue, and held the door open for the rest of us.

    When they were giving out noses, you thought they said roses, and you said "Give me a big red one"

    That reminds me... I understand that's Animal Magic is your favourite show because so many of your realatives are on it

    Yo' mama is a very classy woman, and you should feel honored to have such a fine mother.

    For the most part I would have to agree with who we picked but there were a couple of head scratchers. I just hope that Fisher and Snead have earned their money. Of course unless you are a very bad team not all your draft choices make the team or pan out anyway. I look at the 1st rd picks as starters or should be. 2nd through 4th you should get maybe 1 starter or 2 very good backups. After that you may hit home runs or have a strikeout. Odds aren't good for most after that.

    This is an incredible Rams forum, the best. It's a place where facts a passion for our team can be shared without the agenda loving trolls derailing the good spirits. ROD captured that vision beautifully and it's the only Ram board I post on. Not to mention all the up-to-date features that add so much to posting on here.

    Thank you ROD
