    Question about the 1982 rams-the strike year

    Question about the strike shortened 1982 season. Do the replacement players count in your minds as Rams? After all, they did wear the horns on the field. Note that none of the team media guides list the replacement players on the all time roster. I bought a team photo of the replacement players which is apparantly pretty scarce but i cant find an actual roster, does anyone have one? Any truth to the story that dez was a wide receiver on the replacement team?

    They don't count...it never happened...'82 is a figment of our imaginations and we will never have to live with a year like that again.

    I had fun watching those guys during that year.Wendell Tyler made one of the finest catches for a T.D. I've ever seen,and he didnt drop it.What was really sweet was that catch knocked the ****** out of the playoffs.

    I remember getting free tickets to several games that year. But I can't even remember the players names.

    Any truth to the story that dez was a wide receiver on the replacement team?

    I enjoyed watching those replacement players. Shane Falco, the 2 brothers at OG, that Sumo wrestler at OT, that cop, Daniel Bateman, and convict, Ray Smith (yea, like we didn't know that was Wilkerson) that played LB together, those guys were fun.

    Oh wait a minute, maybe that wasn't the '82 strike come to think of it.

    I don't think they played any replacement games in '82, did they? I think that was just in '87.
