  • It's going to take more than 0 - 4, to stop me from being a TRUE fan.

    Saturday, October 10th at around 1:00 PM, I begin my journey to St. Louis to attend the (0 - 4) St. Louis Rams vs the powerful (4 - 0) Minnesota Vikings. I'm going with my father, best friend and his dad (whose a Vikings fan). We're going to be staying at the Holiday Inn (Convention Center). I''ll be decked out in my Rams gear for the game in Section 151. I of course care that we're 0 - 4, but it's going to take a hell of a lot more than that to prevent me from screaming until my lungs bleed to cheer on the Rams. I feel very good about this game, just remember. Last season we were supposed to get blown out by the "High Powered" Cowboys, and we blew them out.

    As the game draws closer, the more anticipated I become. We could be 0 - 15 and going into the final game of the season, and I'd still attend and scream our team on.

    We are all Rams brothers and sisters, who else will be joining me Sunday in St. Louis to watch our team lay it on the line for our home crowd?

      Have a great time! I'll be screaming as loud as you are from the comfort of my couch. Not quite ready for another road trip in the rain. I-44 still scares the pee out of me.

            I think for some crazy reason I'm actually getting the Rams feed over here in Kentucky for once, so I'll be decked out(as usual) and screaming from my couch! It'll take a lot more than a few losing seasons to make me not a Rams fan! Let's take out a emotionally drained and short week Viking team!

                      Absolutely not, not even 0 - 15. I'm a Rams fan for life.

                      It's times like these that you need to show you true fanship and colors. These times are tough for not only us, but players as well.

                          Glad you are going to a game this year 16 and that you are still here now. Seems to me that you have disappeared in other years that they have not done well. I am not syaing, but I am saying, ya know......;)

                          Please do tell us what you think of the changes to the dome and how the crowd is reacting to this team. Hope you get to see a good game.

                              Yeah but this is a new season and its not going to happen again. I wish you all would stop living in the past. The Vikings are not going to let us ruin one of their franchise's best starts. Favre will have a big day, so will All day (AP) berrian rice and jared allen.

                              should be another ugly game that will really shake up this franchise .

                                Rams Fan Brethren
                                by LA Rammer
                                I had a few minutes to burn a few thoughts. I'm not going to say be patient we will get to the promise land soon or we will drastically improve and become a contender, NO. I'm not "Johnny come lately." I have sat through blowouts at candlestick and been escorted out by inebriated annoying whiner fans with horns, bells and whistles, not good experience. I have been arrested at Anaheim Stadium for confrontation with Raider player and fans, blowout at home, not good. I have also sat through games at home where Redskins and their fans completely took over our house!!! NOT GOOD!!! People in my neighborhood, school, work and other places heckle me "The Lambs!"

                                When the Raiders played in LA my former associates took to them and would invite me to their games. THEY WON SUPERBOWL! Still I couldn't turn to the dark side, didn't feel right. I stuck to my team through adversity, even the ultimate heartbreak... they moved.

                                The GSOT era awakened a new spirit within me, a victorious one. Now ridicule turned to hate, colleagues would wish painful injury upon Warner and Faulk. Now people took me serious.

                                I'm sorry if some here feel they can't take it no more enduring disappointing seasons. Believe me if you walk away and put on another teams jersey it will not make you happier. What will? Going back to why you like this team. The presence of gold horns on the field. Even if we score ONE TD ALL SEASON savor it, there is no better feeling.

                                Our new motto will be "together we suffer as one we triumph!" Keep your heads up and enjoy the small moments. I do not take pleasure in the exultation of a mighty one, but the overcoming of adversity from the lowly.


                                Together We Suffer as One We Triumph!

                                Tired of being a Rams fan
                                by ljcrayton
                                I'm not a bandwagon fan. I am from the STL and I root for the Rams because as a kid, it was the talk around town. Everywhere you turned, it was all about the LA Rams moving to STL. We were happy to have a football team and were hoping if they were anything like our Cardinals, it was going to be on helluva ride.

                                4 years later, something magical happened. I was only in the 8th grade and our hometown was scared when Trent Green went down. They thought no one would watch or buy tickets. So believe it or not, dominoes stepped in. They made a deal when Kurt Warner was named starter that they would take a dollar off for every touchdown the rams scored. I remember the second week of the season, they scored 5 TD's and a pizza was 2 bucks.

                                Unless something like this happens, I no longer have a reason to watch football. I know some of you older fans are thinking this younger generation gives up to easy but lets be serious.

                                In 2010, we had a chance to get to the playoffs. All we had to do was go 8-8 and we couldn't do it. Our division was the laughing stock. All teams made changes and let me see....The Whiners and Seahawks are in the talk every year about the Superbowl and the Cardinals won 10 games and are now leading our division and look at the Rams.

                                We have an old school minded coach who seems to get out coached in every game unless he pulls out some special teams tricks. This is an offensive league period. All defensive minded coaches are looking terrible and Fisher is no exception to the rule. His overall record as a coach is barely over .500. What in the blue hell was he supposed to do in STL?

                                I am officially ashamed to be a Rams fan. I haven't touched my Jerseys, my Rams snuggy, my giant sign that reads "Rams Drive," or my Rams coffee cup. I have a co worker that's a Whiner fan and another that's a Cardinals fan and I find myself leaving and actually doing work when football is mentioned. (Doesn't help my boss is a Cowboys fan....)

                                People actually feel sorry for me when I say I'm a Rams fan. They genuinely look sorry in the face and it freaking sucks. 5 years ago, I was still having hope even at 2-14. Now, I've just given up. The Rams is just a bunch of excuses with a coach who "can't get with the times."

                                You can talk about the Jags or Raiders all you want but we are the worst. We were in the same situation as the Whiners, Cardinals, and Seahawks and in the EXACT SAME AMOUNT OF TIME AND 3 EXTRA 1ST ROUND PICKS we are the same pathetic team and they are all playoff worthy.

                                ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP! No more optimism. We've been waiting for 11 years for this mysterious thing called "next season" but in the end, next season ends up being last season over and over and over and over and over and over again. Seems like STL is where football players go to die. Tavon Austin needs to leave so he can...

                                Curious to how this breaks down.

                                When did your allegience to Rams begin? Are you an orignal LA Ram fan or did you jump on the wagon when the team moved to good old STL? Be honest folks. No harm in admitting to becoming a fan in 95. Locals didn't really have a reason to root before then. All that matters is we've seen nothing but good times for the most part. Ramming speed heyward!!!

                                Would be interested in everyone's take
                                by NJ Ramsfan1
                                There are no two words guaranteed to stir the pot and enrage followers of a certain team like the words "True Fan". When one's loyalty is questioned or someone accuses someone else of being "less a fan" because they don't agree with them on a variety of issues, it is the equivalent of hitting below the belt. When phrases like "See Ya", "Don't let the Door hit you in the ***", Goodbye and Good Riddance" are thrown about, it is both insulting and juvenile.

                                I submit to you the following scenarios:

                                1. A guy decides to avoid being a slave to the television each Sunday and do something constructive instead of watching bad football. He chooses to play with his kids, do yard work, go to the gym or whatever. Can he no longer call himself a Rams fan?
                                2. A guy decides to cancel his NFL ticket package because he doesn't want to pay good money for the "privilege" of being ticked off during Rams football in light of their 6 wins over the past three seasons. Is he no longer a true fan?
                                3. A guy with Rams season tickets decides to give his tickets away/ sell at a reduced rate and not go to the games. Is he no longer a "True Rams Fan"?
                                4. A guy pays $100.00 to go see the Rams on the road. The team is down 38-0 AT THE HALF. He elects to go home with 5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter to resist the urge of killing idiot home fans while watching a non-effort. Is he no longer a true fan? (By the way, this was me at last yrs. Rams-Jets disaster- the worst football game this franchise has ever played).
                                5. Absolutely sick to death from losing and not having anything to cheer about, a fan rips the team and/or individual players/management on this forum or elsewhere. He is more negative than positive because there is much more negative than positive happening on the field, and it is his way to vent. Is he now considered less of a fan?

                                I'm sorry, but in my opinion, if you answered anything other than "NO" to any of the above, you have it wrong. As far as I'm concerned, everyone on this board is a true fan for coming on here and commenting on this weekly gut ache called Rams football.

                                Wondering what you think-

                                Don't know how I've been a Rams fan and internet junkie for so long and never came across this site, but I'm glad I found it. It's great to see so many Rams fans in one spot and such an active forum.

                                Some history...I live in Bakersfield, which is sort of in between San Francisco and L.A. My brother and Dad were ***** fans, so of course being the obnoxious brat I was, decided to become a Rams fan just to piss them off (I guess I could really claim to be a real fan sometime around 3rd-4th grade). Well as you know we were the niners', heck the whole league's during the 90's, red headed step children for a long time and my family and friends (I knew no other Rams fans; everyone mostly liked the Raiders, *****, or Cowboys) loved to give me hell about it.

                                Through the playoff let downs in the late 80's (who could forget Jim Everett's "phantom sack") and the royal spankings we received in the 90's I remained true. When the team moved to St Louis in '95 they broke my heart. I had yet been able to go to L.A. to see them play and I knew my chance was over. I, like many fans, felt betrayed by their leaving, and many Rams fans I knew took this as an excuse to jump ship from the fast sinking Rams team. I too considered this and even at one point tried to find another team to cheer for, but no other team felt right to me; in fact it just felt plain wrong. The first few years in St Louis were rough, and like always I would tell myself, "There's always next year", and sit there hopelessly as Georgia Frontiere made bad trade after bad trade and would continually get rid of all our promising stars.

                                As we all know things changed dramatically in '99 with the arrival of Faulk and the blessing sent from above named Kurt Warner. That season was the season of my life. I felt pride in my team that I had never known before. When we won the Superbowl, it was an amazing thing...our years of being a second rate team were over. Even when we got robbed by the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVI I was still proud...crushed by the loss, but proud.

                                The last few years have been a little rough since I got so used to the winning we were doing. Losing to the ***** twice last year killed me.

                                Let's skip to now and let me say I am glad Martz is gone. He was a great Offensive Coordinator, but made way too many bad decisions to deserve a head coaching job. We have a long season ahead of us, and Scott Linehan has a lot to prove, but I am confident in their game plan, the defense of Jim Haslett, and the running game of Stephen Jackson to go along with our always amazing passing game. It may not gel perfectly this year, but we are definitely headed in the right direction, and I can say without a doubt I will be a Rams fan until the day I die.

                                I finally got a chance to go see the rams play in St Louis last year against the Titans. Got 2nd row seats in the middle of...
