    SLOP is not dead, but...

    The Scott Linehan Opposition Party lives.

    We still have our concerns. Will Linehan do a better job of gameplanning and remaining flexible on Sunday? Will his hiring of "friends" pay off? Will he show the ability to bounce back when things start going badly? Time will tell.

    That said, as the founder of this Party, I make this pledge to you all.

    SLOP will remain silent until (1) the Rams are eliminated from playoff contention, or (2) the season ends, whichever comes first. Hopefully, there will never be a reason for SLOP to appear again. Hopefully, the team will show the kind of improvement I believe it is capable of showing. Hopefully, Scott Linehan will make SLOP eat all if its words.

    But for now, SLOP is still out there.

    Fair enough.

    That being said we never would have heard from your party last year. We did hit a rough patch and coach did right the ship. We where not eliminated from playoff contention until the last week.

    Time will tell.
    If history is any indication we should be fine. One thing will change this year we make it into the playoffs.

    True, and another thing I noticed about our recent history. We do better in odd years; 99, 01, 03, 05, (we would have been great if bulger wasn't injured) and now I think we will be much better in '07.

    There are a few criteria you must meet before being able to join SLOP.

    1) Can you create controversy where there is none?
    2) Can you ignore facts to create your own conclusions?
    3) Can you let your love affair with Martz cloud your thinking on any new head coach?
    4) Can you ignore the good and magnify the bad qualities in a person?

    If the answer to those 4 questions is yes, then you too can be a member of SLOP.

    Boy, someone really wasn't paying attentionlast year.

    1) I did not create the controversy. A big losing streak, blown opportunities and questionable playcalling did.
    2) Hogwash.
    3) Love affair with Martz? Do a search of my threads on Martz. I was hardly his biggest supporter.
    4) Again, when SLOP was born, there wasn't much good at all.

    To answer the question, if you want to join SLOP, send a check for $100.00, payable to CASH (Coalition for AvengerRam's Summer Home).

    8-8 with a new HC, horrible D-Line, young O-Line, and new systems abound? What exactly was everyone expecting last year?

    It is what we expect this year now, and what we're not seeing thus far in the pre-season...

    Av, I don't like this statement:

    SLOP will remain silent until (1) the Rams are eliminated from playoff contention, or (2) the season ends, whichever comes first.
    Maybe I am just a bit over the edge here, but why would S.L.O.P. be silent all season?

    It seems to me that the Scott Linehan Optimism Party would be born of the ashes of S.L.O.P., since I am sure fans everywhere who doubted him last season would want to jump on the bandwagon if he leads our Rams to a 10-6 record.

    You know me, I believe the glass is half full, even if it's poisonous.

    Tell you what...

    If the Rams win 10 games, I'll officially and permanently disband SLOP.
