This Sunday's game will be blacked out in St. Louis. Is it because fans can't stand watching their team go down again, against the Texans..........or are the fans afraid to show up when their "decimated" team will be exposing the entire stadium to the flu. Since the Rams haven't been able to weaken their opponents any other way, maybe they have discovered a desparation appoach.:)

The St. Louis Rams canceled practice Thursday because of an undisclosed number of swine flu cases on the team just three days before a home game against the Houston Texans.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo would not say how many players had the illness but said five or six players had flulike symptoms and added that other players had reported symptoms the last few weeks. He anticipated the Rams would return to practice Friday with a workout that will incorporate some of the elements missed Thursday.

"It's really more of a precaution than anything," Spagnuolo said. "We're checking everybody. We're just being careful."

Players were seen driving away from Rams Park shortly before noon after consulting with medical staff. Team spokesman Ted Crews said many players received medication before leaving.

"If there was one [player], we'd have to be careful because these guys are around each other all the time," Spagnuolo said. "I think it was the right thing to do."

Yeah, I don't want swine flu either. The NFL needs to make chemical warfare a personal foul.

I would have thought that the players would have been vaccinated as soon as it was available. The Rams were already going to be crushed but if they're going to be missing players they will be whatever adjective is best used to signify something beyond being crushed.

Great. First it was the swine flu, now it's the Ram Flu.

I wouldn't call you crazy. I would call you a Houston Sports fan.

Exactly. LOL

The Texans have a history of losing to bad teams at the worst time.

But wait, they also have a history of losing to good teams at the worst time. We need a new history.

I thought the Geneva Convention outlawed germ warfare after WWII...?

...no wait, they outlawed torture of non-combatants... which explains why the game won't be televised in St. Louis.

O.K., you're crazy. Nuttier than a fruitcake. Your cheese slid off your cracker. :crazy:

J/K!! But honestly, I'm not worried about the Rams at all. We have to have confidence that our team can beat a 1-12 Ram team. Seriously, the Rams just suck. If we cannot feel confident about beating this team, then our team sucks, too.

It's the only game this year that I feel confident of a win going into it. I just can't even imagine us melting down. Not saying "never", but I'm saying it's not going to happen. We'll be 7-7 after this weekend.

Boller and Jackson have both been ill with the flu through today and neither may be OK for Sunday.
