One thing I have always loved about football (and sports in general) is the way it transcends social and economic barriers. On Sunday, a rich Rams fan and a poor Rams fan could commiserate in the stands, a white Rams fan and a black Rams fan could both be awed by Steven Jackson while watching the game in a bar, a Catholic mother and an agnostic father could relive the great comeback by Sam Bradford on Monday morning.
Regardless of background, Rams fans were a part of a family of sorts.
Granted, we'd still always beat the hell out of a PhoneyWhiner fan, but that's beside the point.
I sure don't like how this CBA issue has brought out many of our irrelevant backgrounds. I've been pretty outspoken my disdain of the player's union (which sounds like I'm FOR the owners, but I'm mostly just against the union). I've heard others generally agree with my stance, and I've heard many disagree. We are all certainly entitled to our opinions.
I guess what I'm saying is ... this is starting to become too much like work and not nearly very fun.
I'd like to see us start being Rams fans again, and maybe let go of the politics.
I'm not sure this post will accomplish anything, but maybe it will.
I'd much rather argue with Ramchop about the ability to sign 20 pro-bowl free agents than argue with dbcouver about unions.
