    I became a die hard Rams in 1986 because my dad wouldn't let me watch the cowboys as a kid because he got to nervous watching them. I then decded I needed to change my team if I wasn't able to watch my favorite team. I fell in love with Eric Dickerson in 1986. I stuck to the rams until 2004 when I wanted to follow a local team with my kids. Now I am A Texans season ticket holder. But I will always remember the good times the Rams gave me. Especially the magical 1999 season with an uknown Qb who use to bag groceries.

    R.I.P. Georgia and thanks for the memories.

    I'm sorry, I am not a fan of this owner. She was no different from the carpet baggers who took teams from Baltimore, Oakland, Cleveland, Houston, and St Louis in the first place.

    Her biggest legacy is that she abandoned L.A. and thus gave every NFL owner the perfect bargaining chip to use against any town that dares to deny them a stadium deal fit for Midas himself. L.A. without a team in it has been far more valuable to the NFL owners than it ever could be with a team playing there.

    The Cardinals belong in St. Louis.
    The Rams belong in L.A.
    The Oilers belong in Houston (and the Titans belong in a history book).
    The Browns belong in Cleveland (and thankfully that's corrected)
    The Raiders belong in Oakland (and Al Davis belongs in the third circle of hell).

    When Georgia Frontiere passed away that was just one carpet bagger down and 5 to go.

    Actually, the Rams belong in Cleveland and the Cardinals belong in Chicago because that is where thay started. Teams move to other cities. Deal with it.

    The Cleveland Rams and Chicago Cardinals moves did not take place in the modern era of the NFL. There is an enormous difference between these two examples you gave and the fairly recent phenomenon of teams holding up their respective city almost at gunpoint and demanding palaces be built for them.

    The Irsays, Davis', Bidwells, Modells, Adams', and Frontieres of the world were a major part of bringing about what's wrong with the NFL today. Carpetbagger owners are what they are and when they die it doesn't mean that they get their slate wiped clean.

    I'm in total agreement with you Herv. She showed women it's not what you do. It's who you do. Who is the new Rams owner?
