    It's wroten, but is it dead?

    Conventional wisdom says Claude Wroten winds up on a prison farm somewhere in the Bayou State instead of being on schedule to negotiating a fat new contract for starting DT money. And sadly the odds back this up, particularly with the new braintrust looking in other directions and Claude's file under some pile.

    Though now somewhat vague, Wroten's case seems to have an ...enertia, propelling him and us closer to that moment upon judgement when his and our stock crashes and the whole damn thing becomes just another waste.

    But sometimes the gods do like to have their fun. Think about this. Have you heard one peep from this guy? He's fallen off the planet. He's incogneto. Check that. Anyway, management's not talkin, the press aren't holding the presses, and Claude's taken a powder. Talk about laying low.

    Any day now the RAMS will issue a press release stating the unconditional release of three players we've never heard of, and maybe Wrotens name WON'T be on it. A few days later a story by....Bernie (?) will announce Claude Wroten found Jesus, reconciled with one of his favorite offsprings mother; and while working part time in a homeless shelter may have found the cure for his own HIV and is back with the St. Louis RAMS. Then, having straightened his life out, Claude goes on to become all pro and captain of the team.

    Whatever.

    This was a fantasy I had about him. About his coming back I mean. Now we have Dorrell Scott and Harris.

    Next.

    I just want to say I think it's funny that a post about our stoner DT is bannered with Pizza Hut coupons.


    Btw, great thread title.

    Swiss chocolate and lobster nuggets. Go for the chipotle dipping sauce. I've heard it's to die for.

    Are you trying to quit smoking? I've read and heard that Chantix (the new pill that makes quitting easier) users have been experiencing some crazy if not scary dreams.

    Just asking....

    Yeah... no.

    While I'm sure he has a somewhat cleaner slate with Spags, that doesn't mean he doesn't know about him and that Devaney doesn't already have him lined up on the camp body/release before camp list.

    He'll have to work his big ol' tail off to get a roster spot this year and it would actually surprise me if he does. He was value pick gamble that just didn't work out. Oh well, move on.

    Very good post / vision, 'Ramin.

    A definite n e g a t i v e for CW.

    Now that we have Carriker, Ryan, Scott [and other?], we can, and should, do fine without the smoky services of rotten. You're right, given the presence and ideals of Devaney & Spagnuolo, all signs point to the dismissal of this lonely player called Wroten. ...That he may learn from his mistakes and move on, as Teke said. As the Rams must do, i.e., without Claude.

    lol what?
    I have heard nothing from Wroten in a good while. I hate seeing a player with loads of potential like him go to waste.

    at DT we have Carriker, Ryan, Scott and Orien Harris as well as a few camp bodies. There is no room for Wroten at all
