    Thumbs up Deacon Jones

    Deacon has to be the BEST Ram player ever. his attitude was always one of TEAM TEAM TEAM.

    I think Marshall Faulk is coming close to that but I am not sure in this modern age of MONEY $$ that one player can show the same attitude that the OLD TIMERS did.

    thoughts?

    I think there are still players out there who play for the love of the game and it's a real bonus to get paid for playing . BUT football is big business now and the teams treat it like that so why shouldn't the players.

    Okay as fans it's very difficult to imagine that someone wouldn't want to play just for the love of the Rams. But when your average pro career is something like 3 years then it's hardly surprising they want to maximise their income. Especially as the teams show little loyalty to their players in their quest for success and the pursuit of a heathy bottom line. Just ask people like Mike Jones and Keith Lyle what price loyalty.


    Across here in NFLE we see young guys who love playing the game sent across to fill their NFL team's allocation quota only to return injured and get cut. TEAM is a two way street and I can see from the players point of view that Owners and management see it as one way only.

    I see you are using Flecher as you avatar. That is one pumped up dude. I think its a shame that Martz and the Rams want him to cool his jets on his fun stuff

    I think London is one of the true cool fun guys to watch.
