We're all hurting here at TST and all over Rams Nation.
We're all also entitled to our posts but I am appealing to TST members and CSR members.
To CSR members: I realize that most of you are coming here with the best intentions, and that doesn't go unnoticed. I promise. But right now we are suffering; our season pretty much ended this time yesterday. So congratulations on the win and best of luck the rest of the way, but if you really want to do the best thing possible, please just let us grieve. People here will likely say things that are revolting to you, but that's just going to happen in a place like this. You guys are entitled to trash talk us at CSR if you desire of course. But for the sake of everyone, I ask that you leave us be here. This is clearly not a threat, just a humble request.
Rams Nation: A lot happened yesterday. Please understand that certain moments look different when they are burned into your retinas than they do to a fan of another team. This sucks. This really, reallllllllllllllly sucks. But fighting on the internet never got us a W and it sure as hell won't heal Sam's knee. If someone comes here to offer condolences, thank them and move on. If they insert their opinion in the same post, just ignore it and move on. None of us know what went on between JJ and Smith except JJ and Smith. Nobody saw through the referees eyes. I love this place because the dialogue here has helped me learn so much about the inner workings of football, the NFL and our beloved Rams. It makes me sad when the same people here who make convincing cases for and against defensive schemes and player usage devolve into petulant attacks on players, SBNation members, and staff. Let's not lose it because we're hurting bad right now. We will come back. If not this season, then the next. And as shite as this game was, we will grow from it.
Keep calm and Turf Show Times on.
