    Is Len Pasquarelli is that dumb??

    I have lost major respect for this guy now. Is he related to Madden?? Who in the hell is Rich Moran...DUH, do you mean Sean

    The status of Leonard Little for the 2004 season was further clouded Thursday when law enforcement officials confirmed the St. Louis Rams left defensive end has been indicted on charges stemming from an incident two months ago.

    Little, who, according to his lawyer, will enter a not guilty plea, is charged with speeding and as a persistent offender with driving while intoxicated. He was arrested April 24 after police stopped him for speeding on an interstate. The arrest report contended Little had bloodshot eyes, failed three field sobriety tests, and admitted drinking alcohol.

    Driving while intoxicated is typically a misdemeanor, but because Little pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in 1998, in an accident that killed a St. Louis woman, Susan Gutweiler, the charge is elevated to felony status.

    If convicted of the felony, Little, 29, could face up to four years in prison.

    From a league standpoint, Little could be subject to fine or, more likely, suspension if he is convicted or even pleads to a lesser charge. The NFL is monitoring the situation since it falls under the purview of the league's substance abuse and personal conduct policies.

    No league action is anticipated before the case is resolved. It is expected that Little will be available for the start of training camp.

    Little was suspended by commissioner Paul Tagliabue for the first eight games of the '99 regular season because of the 1998 case. In that incident, his blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit for Missouri. He served a three-month jail sentence and completed 1,000 hours of community service and four years of probation.

    The loss of Little, even for a portion of the 2004 season would certainly be a blow to a Rams teams that lost starting right end Grant Wistrom to Seattle as an unrestricted free agent earlier in the offseason.

    A former University of Tennessee star, Little is regarded as the Rams' best pass rush threat and he posted 12 sacks in 2003, earning his first Pro Bowl invitation. Over the past three seasons, Little has 39 sacks, notching double digits in each of the three years.

    St. Louis has done little to address the defensive end position in the offseason. The team signed journeyman Rich Moran and chose Tony Hargrove of Georgia Tech, who didn't play in 2003 because of academic ineligibility, in the third round of the draft.

    Bah, cut the boy some slack. You're expecting too much JRams! "Damn it Jim, he's a journalist, not an engineer."

    Yes, he is that dumb. Yes he is intelligent. Yes, he doens't know about half of what he writes. Yes, he does it to make money, he may not even care about the Rams, and Rich Saul, err Rich Moran, errr Sean Moran.

    The closer you examine professional journalists in all areas, the more errors you're going to find. Why, some of them can't even spell!

    I depend on the guys on this forum, (and you Rubbersoul, get your butt over here), to tell me what's going on with the Rams, than I do on the ESPN, Sporting news, etc., writers. We have passionate, keen, interested guys who live and breath the Rams... why depend on some dude, living in Bumfuq Egypt (yes, it exists), trying to make a buck, to keep you informed?

    I can not believe it. You have a MAJOR sport reporter that can't even do his home work. CRAZY!!! Reminds of Isaac Holt or Torry Bruce...

    I seem to recall that Little's case won't be set for trial until next February. That fact, coupled with the fact that they don't hold pretrial conferences on Sundays or in the evening should be enough for any sportswriter to conclude that Little will be available this season (though, perhaps not in 2005).

    Don't get too hung up on the word "indictment". Yes, it is a step in the trial process, but it by no means is anything remotely indicative of a conviction. You can get a baloney-and-cheese sandwich indicted with a little effort.

    LOL, I got it now! Deduct 2 points from me.

    Look, I'm not always in spell/grammar checker mode. But, I should have caught that one... I'm ashamed, and have failed to live up to my reputation...my bad.

    Now please don't go trying to slip a few past me... you'll most often suceed.

    If at first you don't succeed....

    Well Coy, I think you can figure it out from there.

    The pit of my gloom, despare, and agony, depression, and excessive misery, grows ever deeper. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Rich Moran a punter from a few years back. I want to say with the Bills, maybe?
