  • A fans (edited, stolen, plagiarised) eulogy for 2012 . .

    Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
    Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
    Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

    Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
    Scribbling on the sky the message The Rams Are Dead,
    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
    Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

    They were my North, my South, my East and West,
    My working week and my Sunday best,
    My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
    I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.

    The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.

    A season ends before it begins with all too familiar a shudder;
    Surely not again please we beg our Rams !!!!!


    .......oh bugger.

    I guess some fans are ready to evacuate.

    A bit premature, though.

    Nothing worse than premature evacuation.

          I'm not sure anyone is giving up yet, but I shutter to think about how ugly this forum is going to get IF the Rams get blown out in game one against the Lions as the experts predict. Then when the season begins to unravel the way most (including me) predict it will, it's going to get real ugly, real fast.

            Av's Rams Draft Board (*Sorted by Position*)
            by AvengerRam_old
            I've created a new type of Rams draft board that sorts the players by position. A bit of explanation is in order...

            First, each position has a designated round. This denotes the earliest round I would consider taking a player the given position. For example, the position of CB is designated "Round 1B," which means the earliest I'd take a CB is with the Rams second pick in the first round.

            Because of these designations, certain players are omitted. For example, you won't see the top QBs (Bortles, Manziel, Bridgewater), Aaron Donald or Khalil Mack on my lists, because I am confident that they will all be taken before the earliest selection I'd use on their respective positions.

            Ten players have a number in bold after their names. These are my Top 10 overall prospects, and their rankings on my overall board.

            Finally, where there is only one player (DE), or no players at all (TE) at a given position who I'd consider in the first three rounds of the draft, I have not included a full list of five players.

            So... with that, here are my lists:

            Quarterback (Round 2)

            1. Derek Carr, Fresno State
            2. Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois
            3. A.J. McCarron, Alabama
            4. David Fales, San Jose State
            5. Aaron Murray, Georgia

            Running Back (Round 3)

            1. Tre Mason, Auburn
            2. Bishop Sankey, Washington
            3. Ka’Deem Carey, Arizona
            4. Lache Seastrunk, Baylor
            5. Tyler Gaffney, Stanford

            Wide Receiver (Round 1A)

            1. Sammy Watkins, Clemson (3)
            2. Mike Evans, Texas A&M (4)
            3. Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State*
            4. Odell Beckham, Jr., LSU
            5. Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt

            Tight End (n/a)

            Offensive Guard/Center (Round 2)

            1. David Yankey, Stanford
            2. Gabe Jackson, Mississippi State
            3. Xavier Su’a-Filo, UCLA
            4. Brandon Thomas, Clemson
            5. Marcus Martin, USC

            Offensive Tackle (Round 1A)

            1. Jake Matthews, Texas A&M (1)*
            2. Greg Robinson, Auburn (2)*
            3. Taylor Lewan, Michigan (6)*
            4. Zack Martin, Notre Dame (7)
            5. Morgan Moses, Virginia

            Defensive End (Round 1A)

            1. Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina*

            Defensive Tackle (Round 2)

            1. Timmy Jernigan, Florida State
            2. RaShede Hagerman, Minnesota
            3. Ego Ferguson, LSU
            4. DaQuan Jones,...

            Fun With Wiretapping: Jake Long Watch 2013 Edition!
            by AvengerRam_old
            Security is really tight at Rams Park these days, so I was unable to get my microphones in the negotiating room. My spies were able, however, to bug the Rams Park receptionist desk, and was able to pick up these very interesting calls. Enjoy!

            “St. Louis Rams, may I help you?”

            “I’m sorry, Mr. Miklasz, I’m not at liberty to provide information regarding player visits.”

            “Yes, I know who you are.”

            “No, that doesn’t change anything.”

            “No, I’m sorry, I can’t forward your advice to Jeff Fisher.”

            “Well, that’s not very nice. I’m hanging up now.”

            ****

            “St. Louis Rams, may I help you?”

            “Oh, hello, Mr. Dahl.”

            “Yes, I gave him your messages.”

            “Yes, I’m sure he’ll call you back as soon as he can.”

            Okay… okay… look, he said to just go down to the basement where your new locker is and while you're down here, it would be really great if you could just sort of take care of the cockroach problem we've been having in here. Yeah…that would be great.”

            ****

            “St. Louis Rams, may I help you?

            “Oh, its you. Mr.Florio, I’m not going to talk to you anymore. I am, quite frankly, tired of you citing me as a ‘team source.’ Good day, Sir.”

            ****

            “St. Louis Rams, may I help you?

            “We just discussed this Mr. Miklasz… the answer is still ‘no.’”


            “I’m sure Stan Kroenke is a good friend of yours, Mr.Miklasz. That does not change anything.”

            “How rude. Do youkiss your mother with that mouth? Goodbye!”

            ****

            “St. Louis Rams, may I help you?”

            “Yes, Mr. Delmas, we did find your wallet.”

            “Oh, I don’t feel right about sending it all the way to SanFrancisco. I think it would be better ifyou came back to get it.”

            “Great, I’ll see you then.”

            ****

            “St. Louis Rams, may I help you?”

            “Oh, Mr. Snead. Ididn’t recognize your voice. Its funny, I thought you were still in the building.”

            “But we don’t have a back exit, Mr. Sn-- wait a second… is this Mr. Miklasz again? Hello? Hello?”

            ****

            “St. Louis Rams, may I help you?”

            “Oh, hello, Mr. Dacity. Yes, of course I’ll put you right through to Coach Fisher. Please hold.”

            A song for Preseason (with apologies to Green Day)
            by AvengerRam_old
            Summer has come and passed,
            There's pigskin on the tube, at last.
            Wake me up, when preseason ends.

            Right now, the whole roster’s vast,
            But most, by Autumn will not last.
            Wake me up, when preseason ends.

            Some are in pain again,
            See the falling of the sky.
            Patience is not for them.
            Each moment, do or die.

            Allow me to be quite crass,
            An August naysayer, is an ass.
            Wake me up, when preseason ends.

            Find your hope for wins, again.
            Like you did when Spring began.
            Wake me up, when preseason ends.

            Some are in pain again,
            See the falling of the sky.
            Patience is not for them.
            Each moment, do or die.

            As my memory is vast,
            I know the bad times will not last,
            Wake me up, when preseason ends.

            1. Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
            2. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
