    Anyone else tired of (Nick Waggoner) ESPN articles

    His articles are always so pessimistic and depressing on how the Rams in essence suck.

    I never take ESPN seriously anyhow--they somehow manage to collect most of the losers, has-beens, and total-right-offs as "experts"...if they where that good they would be on some team's staff

    I've enjoyed most of the Wagoner articles I've read. It's interesting to see what he has to say when he's not under the umbrella of the Rams organization, since he was previously the main writer for the Rams' official site. Ultimately, they're journalists covering a sport. I don't get too worked up one way or the other.

    I have never respected Wagoner and his work. When he worked for the Rams he was simply as marketing tool and I do not read his articles now.

    This is the way I see it. Wagoner's articles seem pretty straight forward to me, and I don't see any pessimistic slant. In fact, I went back and looked at his last several articles, and most had a positive spin.

    Sometimes its good to take a look and see what these sports writers have to say. But i truly think that for the rams Im the best writer out there because no matter what anyone says!!! the rams are the absolute best team in football. Anyone who wants to talk smack about my team can go jump off a cliff.

    Wagoner is no worse than the others, as far as I can tell.

    The problem with all of these sportswriters is that they are like weathermen... They can tell you what is, and what was, but they are not all that great at telling you what will be.

    Same here.

    For the most part I think Wagoner is pro STL Rams but maybe it depends on how well he slept the night before publishing his latest rendering.
