    So I've read a couple more posts, about leaving the Rams fan that I saw, Goodbye, don't let the doorknow hit you where the good Lord split you. What's the definition of a fair-weather-fan? They are around when its convienant for them. So if the team is winning, or the weathers nice, and they got 2 know what I'm saying? Well I would like to say something to all those "fans" who are "done" with the Rams. Please become a Winers fan so I can dispise you more then kids and vegetables. We don't need your kind here, raining on our already dim day. We all know that the Rams are a very bad team, and that's not gonna change tomorrow. I have faith that the Rams are gonna be good sooner or later. And whenever that day comes, it will only make this that much better. Fanhood is not something you pack in a bag, and and pull is out when its convienant. To make a long story short, if you wanna leave, leave, but don't you dare comeback and act like you've been here the whole time. This isn't about the past, this is now. Want some, get some...GoRams

    Clarification please!!!
    by huntdux
    Okay! I've been doing a little research, and I'm trying to figure out just how a bunch of Scotsmen got involved in rooting for an NFL team. Not that we don't appreciate your devotion and loyalty to the Rams, but every sport I can find related to Scotland involves getting RID on an object! Hammer THROW...caber TOSS...stone THROW...Curling??? Sliding a stone across the ice AWAY from you. Even golf! Hit the ball as far as you can, THEN walk after it! Football is all about ball POSSESSION!!!! I'm soooo confused!! But, I must say thanks for sharing your love of the Rams with the rest of us by starting Clanram!

    A Head Coaches Song
    by Curly Horns
    I have said it before and I will say it again.

    Being a head coach in the NFL is a volatile occupation.

    Personally, I don't think the fans are any worse in St. Louis than in any other city with an NFL team. Most coaches are escorted off the field by an officer of the law in every stadium accross the country. Bernie M. probably sees more hate mail about Martz than Martz himself ever sees. I seriously doubt Martz has the time or inclination to sit around and read about what the fans think of him.

    I always liked Jim Mora Sr. He was a no BS coach and was not one to sugar coat things.

    I think he once said it best to the media and the fans alike.

    "You think you know, but you don't know, and you never will know"

    I have no doubt that is true. On the other hand, I think the reason we don't know is because coaches generally don't care what fans or the media think. It's a two-way street in my opinion. Most coaches grow up in this occupation. They know what it is like going in. It is nothing they have not seen their entire careers. If and when a coach begins to succomb to the reviews of the critics I think he has lost it.

    I'm not trying to justify it one way or the other. I'm simply stating my opinion. If we were to truly boil it all down, then this game of football means absolutely nothing in life. We live in a society where athletes playing a game are making millions more than hard working Americans, who risk their own lives, to protect the lives of not only these athletes but the citizens of this country. Making millions and profiting on the backs of hard working Americans over a game - Is that in itself not shameful?

    Yes being in the limelight as an NFL head coach is a volatile occupation. One in which you must cast the critics asside and do what you believe is right. I don't see it being an occupation for the bleeding heart type.

    A Head Coaches Song:

    I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
    A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
    When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
    No one recognized me, I didn't look the same

    But it's all right now
    I learned my lesson well
    You see, ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself

    People came from miles around, everyone was there
    Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
    An' over in the corner, much to my surprise
    Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise

    But it's all right now
    I learned my lesson wel
    You see, ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself
    Lot-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah

    Played them all the old songs, thought that's why they came
    No one heard the music, we didn't look the same
    I said hello...

    100% Support from this FAN
    by supachump
    I debated with myself if I should post this. Surely some of the so called "fans" that have given up on the Rams will have some sort of witty reply. However, I've felt an overwhelming urge to post something.

    The Rams are in a sorry state right now. The front office is making bad decisions, the coach doesn't seem up to the job, our defense is unable to hold it together for an entire game, and our front line isn't protecting the Q-Back making him nervous and unable to find a rhythm.

    A lot is wrong. But what is right is that the Rams are my team, and for a lot of you on this board, your team as well. Fans have the right to complain and want something better, but a fan should also stick with them and look at the positives no matter how few there seem to be at this particular moment. Contrary to a lot of you, based on the posts I've been reading, I could reluctantly accept another terrible season and another after that and another after that. No, I don't like the abuse and I do want something more, but I stick by my team no matter the outcome.

    I don't expect everyone to feel the same way and I know that everyone reacts differently. But what I see, as bad as things seem, is a slight improvement from week 1 to week 2. This is what keeps me going. And I do think the team looked slightly better this week. Even if they play even worse next week, I'll still be here and still be a fan, because there is always hope. And when a team is down, this is what makes a fan. And the true test of a fan at that.

    People with different opinions are welcome on this board is far as I'm concerned. That is what sparks good debate and what could help me something that I wouldn't see otherwise. But when someone becomes so negative that the only thing that comes out of their mouth (fingers?) is down right hatred and they are only sticking around here to spread that hatred. And by their own admission, are no longer a fan and unwilling to follow the team. Well, that's your decision and I support it, but why do you stick around here and continue posting such garbage? Do you feel a need to try and convince more people to join your Anti-Rams social club?

    I applaud the fans that are sticking behind their team in these bad times. I even applaud the unhappy ones that are overwhelmed with anger, but still hold out a glimmer of hope and remain a fan.

    Even more so, to the Rams themselves (not that they are listening), but I support you 100%, even in this bad time. You are my team and I stand behind you, just as I would a member of my family. Good times and bad.

    Stop Crying, So-called Fans. I'm here to help.

    It is clear that you really need me, the one true Ram fan, to clear things up for you all. You see, because your not really Ram fans, you don't know how to handle whats going on now. Let me help you out.

    A real fan still hopes for wins and playoffs, no matter what. Those of you who are hoping that that season will end and that the team will lose so they can draft higher are not fans at all.

    A real fan supports Vitt for now but hopes for a new coach. The Rams are going to sign Pete Carrol as their new coach so you dont have to worry about it.

    A real fan doesn't worry about the front office as long as the players are under contract and things are going in the right direction.

    I know its hard for most of you. Most of you started rooting for the Rams when they won it all (or are just following their husbands or boyfriednds lead) and cant handle that they dont win it every year.

    The one true Ram fan knows that the team cant win it every year but will again soon.
