Regular Season Game -- 1999
Many of us remember the Rams / Titans regular season contest in 1999. The Rams had seemed unstoppable, and Tennessee beat us in a close match.
I hated Jeff Fischer that day. I saw him do something I had never seen a head coach do before. He actually persuaded them to reverse a crucial call (I do not remember the call, so don't ask) without going to instant replay. How many times have we seen a football/baseball/basketball coach/manager chewot an ump/ref, and either get ejected or just walk off in a huff without getting any satisfaction except for the satisfaction of speaking his mind?
n top of that, I was sure that whatever the call was, Fischer himself was wrong. Anyway, I disliked what happened that day, but I figured wither the refs hate the Rams, Fischer is one persuasive cookie, or both.
I wuldn't mind having hm on the sidelines.

It was a spot on a failed fourth down play. The officials ran the chains out a second time, and low-and-behold, it's then a first down.
