  • For Clan Ram members across the pond, how does beckham.....

    For those of you experts across the pond on the "other type of football," can someone explain to me whether beckham missing the penalty kick yesterday constitutes a monumental choke or simply a great play by the goalie. Does the collapse of the english squad against the french have any adverse impact on any of our clan ram brothers in Scotland, including but not limited to our Fearless Leader, Mr. Dez.

    This may make no sense, but it seems to an idiot like me that with that much on the line, if i was a fan of england, i would feel like wilkens missing an extra point or chip shot field goal to lose us a huge game. I dont believe a penalty kick equates to a 54 yarder!

    ramming speed to all

    It wasn't a good penalty but the goalkeeper made a good save. The good thing is that england played well and therefore as it is a league competition at this stage and the first 2 go through england should go through to the knockout stage if they beat the swiss and croatia if they don't then they don't deserve to go through and the french game irrelevant.

    The scots, dez etc are laughing in their beer

        He definietly chocked... its what happens when you don't practice (Zidane takes the penalties for Real Madrid)... Beckham is a good player.. but he seldome performs on the big stage..

        Its interesting how many big name players cannot produce on the big occasion.. the human mind is trully amazing

          Its more like missing an extra point, he choked, no 2 ways about it.

          do you really support england through all their endevers dez?

            Well let me tell as a former academy player (now amateur), every penalty kick that's failed is always a bad kick, yes Barthez moved before that's actually a foul in favor to Beckham, and also there were french players inside the area before Beck's touched the ball so If the Referee would have been good he would have repeated the kick, but anyway is a badkick.
            Penalty's is always in favor to the one that's kicking but is more a psychologic matter like control the pressure.
            Anyway England should win their other 2 games, hope for my friends in England, although I think honestly their coach is way overrated.

              It was a pure bad penalty. Not hard enough, at the height that a keeper loves. Sure Barthez, was over the line before the kick was made, but for the money these guys get paid you should be able to slot those kicks, unless of course you can't hack the pressure.

              Rampower , as I'm sure you are aware, all we Scots have two favourite teams in the world, Scotland, obviously is our first choice, but when England are playing we know who to support..........DEZ?

                Who's the Ram exec who's a member of Clan Ram? I think you should have a separate section just for them to post so we can get some behind-the-scenes insight.

                kudos to british ram and our friends across the pond

                A BIG RAMMING SPEED to british ram for breaking the news on hall. I want to know exactly how many nfl fan boards are so intense and diversified that they have members from across the pond that break news on key trades.

                It speaks very highly of dez and what he has built here that we have so many ram fans in so many places that news can never escape us. I expect that if the rams found a prospect in antartica, there would be a clanram member on the scene to file a report.

                Great great job by British Ram. LEts all hoist a pint or two or three in his honor.

                Interesting how we have traded both # 5 picks for guys named Hall. Round 5, the round of Hall.

                All hail and ramming speed to British Ram

                RamDez: If it was not for RamDez i would not be posting this article or would of got to talk to many of you posters. He sets up the Clanbashes, if anyone has a problem with help he is the first to reply. It seems like people actually do not know who RamDez is.

                AvengerRam: Whenever I go into a room and I see a post avenger did, I always read what he writes. it seems like when avenger posts on a forum, that everyone agrees with him. well respected on the clan ram website.

                Txramfan: First thread i ever read, was txrams. Many Members on here know who he is and always use his famous quote "great sign, excellent depth".

                Nick: Who does not know nick? Best insight and news you will get from a ram member.

                HUbison: Do not really know him, but i see he has high rep points and i always see his argument in a thread.

                Bigredman: I do not know, but it seems like a lot of members on here know him.

                other.... I am only going off of my knowledge on here, so many members might say someone i do not have on here.
