    Re: For STILL upset Warner fans.....

    Given the temporary nature of any player's tenure with a career, how can any "Player Fan" be a long term fan of a team?

    I'm not sure what the intent of these statements are, but I've got news for you, there have always been what you call "player fans". It's absolutely nothing new and nothing that should be seen as a negative. There has been a growing undercurrent here that anyone who still has an interest in Kurt Warner is not a true Ram fan. The fact that you make a distinction between Ram fans and Warner fans and put them in some type of struggle is a perfect example.

    Let me assure you that this is one Warner fan who is also very much a die-hard Ram fan in every sense of the word. I can't speak for others with an interest in Warner, but I would bet that virtually all, if not all feel the same way I do.

    Because one is not dependant on the other.

    Mike, you are completely right. One person can be both a Rams fan and a Warner fan. I believe you, I and several others would fall into that very category. However, I think the conflict is between those that see the Rams only in the light of being Warner's former team, and true Rams fans. These people are the ones that would root for Warner's team if they played the Rams. Where you and I will root for Warner's team, unless it conflicts with the best interests of the Rams, these individuals will root for Warner's team, in SPITE of the Ram's best interests.

    Re: For STILL upset Warner fans.....

    I will always have fond memories of eric dickerson, jim everett, flipper anderson, jerome bettis, kurt warner, london flecther and many others. I will continue to wish them well and if they are still playing, see how they do. But they are now the rams past and I aint gonna waste my time worrying about the past.

    I hearby declare my self a "mover-on-ite"

    or moron for short.

    :confused:

    but thats for me, I just cant see the point in stressing my self to death for months over something I cannot control.

    Bison, maybe I'm wrong, but I just don't see this. I can't believe anyone who spends any amount of time here and voices passionate opinions about this team would root against the Rams under any circumstances. If they are indeed out there, I think they would be happy to let the fact be known
    that their loyalties lie elsewhere. I'm not saying these people positively don't exist, but nothing I have read would lead me to those conclusions. I just see many types of passionate Ram fans who express their views and frustrations in different ways.

    You're so off topic here, why don't you just start another thread so the rest of us can start posting again. Man, I've been waiting to post for days now and the conversation isn't coming back to the original thread topic. I think I'll complain to the mod's. They love me.

    Mike, I would love for you to be right about this, but I can think of a couple of posters who would fall in to this category.

    Re: For STILL upset Warner fans.....

    Let's see, a thread about Warner is at 100 replies while the most any of the "real Rams topics" are topping out in the low 20's. Someone please tell me again why it's bad for the message board to bring up Warner's name (out of context or not)?

    Re: For STILL upset Warner fans.....

    true molker, still gets people talking, but the general theme of the thread is..?

    trying to get people to move on?


    to look to the future?


    to follow their team whoever is playing for them?

    love players and ex-players, but dont forget to carry on loving your team?

    but I suppose it ends up where it always ends up.

    With us all chasing our tails! 100 replies, but where is it goin?

    Well, someone could start a thread about abortion, religion, politics or any number of other controversial topics and get a lot of responses, but that doesn't make it good for the board.

    Nice Avenger, talking about Warner equals talking about abortion. You're obviously not biased are you?

    Just a friendly intervention at this point asking everyone to calm down.

    On a side note, I can not believe the Rams are fighting for a play off spot and there are "Ram" fans in here arguing ...................................
