The Post-Dispatch's "Ram Talk" Forum Represents the Worst of Rams "Fans"


  • The Post-Dispatch's "Ram Talk" Forum Represents the Worst of Rams "Fans"

    Like many of you, I venture over to the PD site on a fairly regular basis for Rams news.

    Like some of you, I occasionally make the mistake of opening a thread or two on the "Rams Talk" forum.

    Good Lord... those people are more full of crap than a broken porta-potty at a chili cookoff during a dysentery outbreak. The majority of them have no business calling themselves Rams fans at all.

    I guess the best use of that forum is to show what real non-fans are like. Sure, we have our spats around here among the rose-colored glasses wearing optimists and the Chicken Little naysayers from time to time, but even the most extreme regulars here are mild salsa compared to the flaming vat of Tobasco over at the PD.

    I'm not going to dignify any particular poster by naming him or her, but suffice to say there is an overwhelming majority of knee-jerk howler monkeys there who do little but scream about the Rams' problems while, at the same time, taking apparent joy in the vindication of their prior prognstications of doom. In the aggregate, their opinion seems to be that everyone on the team should be fired, cut or thrown into a pool of hungry sea bass outfitted with laser beams (and yes, they are ill-tempered).

    Does any of this matter? I guess, in the grand scheme of things, the answer is "no." However, I will say this... given the PD's status as the Rams' primary home city news source, the presence of these morons does not reflect well on the team as a whole. We might not be the fan base of the Chicago Cubs, but there is a loyal, if long-suffering, core of Rams fans who prefer to at least be constructive in addressing the current state of affairs.

    So, as far as I'm concerned, the "Rams Talk" forum should be shut down entirely. It is an unnecessary blemish that negatively impacts the image of all Rams fans.

    Get rid of it, PD!

      I stay away from there. I don't need those "negative vibes" in my life. Just say no. We have Dez and the Mods to thank for a special place like ClanRam. Here you find a platform for comradary and constructive debate (in most cases) in which to discuss one of our greatest passions...our beloved Rams. Thanks guys!

    Now that the Senior Bowl is firmly in the rear view mirrior, here's an updated look at how things could shake out in the first round of the NFL Draft this year. As always, feedback and constructive criticism is welcome! ROUND ONE 1. Tennessee Titans: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Mississippi -Tennessee is second in the league in sacks allowed, and no quarterback when pressured has been sacked at as large of a percentage as Marcus Mariota has been. Tunsil gives the Titans a legitimate left tackle to pair wi...

    RamView, January 3, 2016 Game #16: ***** 19, Rams 16 (OT) The ever-inconsistent Rams regress back to the mean and end another losing season with another disappointing loss to a team they had no business losing to. The hallmark of Jeff Fisher Rams football isn't the running game or aggressive defense, it's miserable losses like this one. Good riddance to 2015. Position by position: * QB: Case Keenum (23-37-231, PR 77.6) does a lot right for the Rams at QB. He runs the offense with good tempo an...

  • Rams lose 19-16 in OT to whiners; The Good, Bad and Ugly
    by general counsel
    The Todd Gurley-less Rams finished their season 7-9 with a disappointing OT loss to the whiners by the score of 19-16 on the strength of terrible third down play on both sides of the ball, untimely penalties, terrible field goal kicking and some highly suspect play calling with the team poised to win the game in overtime. The Rams shortcomings against a 5-11 couldnt have been more obvious today. At the end of the day, Case Keenum is not an NFL starting qb, albeit a reasonable backup. Way too...

  • Rams beat seachickens 23-17; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    by general counsel
    In what should be considered their most impressive win in the Fisher era, the Rams won their third game in a row by beating and beating up the seachickens in a tremendous 23-17 win. The Rams capitalized on 3 seachicken turnovers (one of which resulted in a defensive touchdown), didn't turn the ball over themselves, kept the penalties to a minimum, and scrounged out just enough offense to earn their first season sweep of the chickens since 2004. The Rams played their best half of the year jumping...

    Good write up.

    I think it was ugly that we accepted the penalty with the Seagulla on 4 and 10. Giving them a new (long) third down. I am pretty sure they would not have gone for it on 4 and 10.

    Else great game.

    by MFranke
    RamView, December 17, 2015 Game #14: Rams 31, Bucs 23 If this was the Rams' last week in St. Louis, at least they made it a heck of a week. They won for the second time in five days Thursday night and made the Bucs look like the team that could not cut the mustard. Position by position: * QB: Case Keenum (14-17-234, 2 TD, PR 158.0) managed the heck out of this game. He led the Rams to an opening drive TD throwing little but screens and swing passes. But Case did not live on small ball alone, a...
