  • Question about Pasquerelli comments

    Len P. had written this in one of his articles:

    "Behind all the glitz of the high-octane offense that marked Martz's tenure with the Rams, this has been a dysfunctional franchise, one fraught with infighting and influence-peddling and internecine bickering, and with considerable palace intrigue. There is a sense that everyone has his own agenda, that the various departments rarely work in concert, and that things are frayed at the seams. Someone has to restore order and functionality to the operation."

    My question is, is this true? Or just more unfounded babbling on Pasquerelli's part? I haven't seen anything from the Rams to make me believe this at all, but I'm not really an "insider" so I don't know. I was wondering if maybe people in StL had heard more about it from local coverage or something - that's a pretty big accusation and just had me a little concerned, I'd appreciate any feedback and I apologize if this is already being discussed.

    Basically it is true.

    HB has written as much in the recent edition of gridiron gateway magazine.

          Well a lot of coaches of teams with losing records got fired, that doesn't mean the team is a "dysfunctional franchise" where people in the front office are stabbing each other in the back and everyone goes his own way, tearing the team and the organization apart from the core, which is what Pasquerelli is implying is the case with the Rams. Mike Sherman got fired too and nobody said the Packers are a dysfunctional organization.

            The "function" of a professional football organization is to win games. Therefore, any team with a losing record is, by definition, "dysfunctional."

            The rest is just banter to fill newspaper columns and web articles.

              Question For Those Who Have Attended A Game This Year
              by r8rh8rmike
              Is the new bag policy a non-issue? I really thought it would be troublesome, but I have not heard about any problems what so ever. I'm curious because I'd like to be prepared to go early if need be.

              Legal question on Korean Airline crash.
              by MauiRam
              I was listening to NPR while driving to work, and heard that the Korean Air pilots who flew the 777 that crashed at S.F. airport were not tested for drugs or alcohol immediately after the crash landing. The reason given: Korean airlines simply do not require it of their pilots. I found this little nugget of information astonishing.

              Another issue I wonder about is what legal options do people who were injured have, as Korean Air is a foreign company (Public Subsidiary of The Hanjin Group)? Do Americans or foreign national other than Koreans have the ability to sue for compensation, and actually collect for injuries/damages/losses/etc.? Just curious .. Av? Steve?

              I've been advised to always wear 2 pair of pants on the golf course. Why?

              Question on an Unordered Delivery
              by thoey
              Last week there was a knock at the door and when I opened it, there was FedEx with a Dell box for me to sign for. I knew that we had not ordered anything, so I verified the name and address and it was correct. I signed for it, and then looked at the shipping document. It was addressed to my wife at our home address. The last four of the Credit Card do not match any cards that we have. Contacted external family and no one sent a surprise gift.

              Now, being a nice guy, I called Dell. Talked to "Peter". Finally got down to that they would have FedEx come out and return it to Dell and they would figure out the problem. Well, they were supposed to pick it up yesterday. No FedEx.
              So, the question is, how long do I have to wait until I can just say thanks and start playing with my free toy?
