    Lotta' people on this board grabbin' for that first stone.

    Don't think we actually know that HE was told to stop. We DO know Payton and Loomis were.

    And the problem with this is that if this probability turns out, it is even more likely that he returns to the Rams. This organization, at arguably one of its defining moments, does not need to be distracted by this baggage. Now, or in the future.

    Agreed. I didn't really like him in the first place (regardless of the fact I think the vitriol directed at him is a bit much), but trusted Fisher.

    What I disagree with is that NFL reinstatement = automatic Rams rehire.
    Why? If the D sucks - it's basically his, with his two main disciples running it.
    If it's great, why do the Rams need him?
    AT's right - the second he's reinstated, the press'll go nuts, and the Rams don't need it.

Instead of getting caught up in it, I should have stopped it. I take full responsibility for my role."

    The only reason they stopped was because they got caught. He very likely would have attempted to institute the same kind of program here. Unfortunately for the Rams Williams is damaged goods. If for some reason they let him come back and anything happens it will look worse for the Rams than it does for the saints now. I don't think the Rams can or should take that chance.
