New Year, Old Result

How nice to see that our beloved Warner made it to the playoffs again while our other beloveds sat at home and watched him torch the Packers for 51 points. Sure he came back to earth after another dome shattering hit against the Saints, but I'd take it. We could make an All-Pro team out of Ex-Rams we have to watch every year at about this time, and it makes me sick. Once in a while it would be nice to actually see someone on our team make a play this time of year. Like that'll happen anytime soon. Oh well - no matter who the Rams take in the draft it will probably end up in the same result anyway, so why even worry about it?

No More Love From This Chump

So now that the season is over I look back on what we had to go through and I honestly think that this is the worst ever. Not only because we went 1-15, but because we were worse than the Lions, Raiders, and Browns, three teams who for years have been the laughing stock of the NFL. Three teams who have new or somewhat new coaches who suck. Three teams with new or almost new QB's who suck. Three teams who are just downright awful and if it hadn't been for beating one of them this year we would be 0-16.

What a frickin disaster. I can't even begin to describe how mad and humiliated I feel right now, but I'll give it a try. I never want to see another football game in my life again, and I am putting all of my Rams stuff up for sale on eBay tomorrow. I am finished with this crap. We pay too much to get back too little, watching a bunch of overpaid humans play like crap while there is so much poverty in this world that could benefit from just 1/1000 of the NFL's annual budget. Guys who break the law repeatedly and we cheer for them. Guys who cheat on their wives and girlfriends and we cheer for them. Guys who have terrible tempers and we cheer for them. Guys who seem to think that they need to make more money in order to take care of their families and cry like babies if they don't get it, and yet we cheer for them when they do get it. Guys who go on TV begging us to give our money for holiday cheer, yet they are the ones with all the money to give. I am tired of it. They will get no more of my money.

We'll see how it all plays out as the offseason progresses, but with my health and the economy taking their toll on my family like they have I really can't say that I'll ever be back to the same level of passion for the NFL that I've known all my life. I will always be a Rams fan, but only so much as it will keep me from ever rooting for anyone else. Goodbye and good riddance to a year and team that just flat out stank!
