The ten seasons between the 2004 and 2013 will be remembered among St Louis Rams fans as a decade of futility. Memories of 1 and 2 win seasons, of Scott Linehan and Steve Spagnuolo, of high-profile draft busts, of wasting Steven Jackson’s best years, of conveyor belts of underperforming receivers / cornerbacks / linebackers [delete as appropriate], all combine to remind fans of the frustrations of this testing time. It is a chapter of misery that we hope to behind us – starting this Sunday.
But, in times of adversity, it is the real fan that emerges. The one who suffers on a weekly basis, whose Monday mornings are automatically spoilt by the hangover of fury that follows every loss. These are the individuals who remember the little details that make up a period of constant losing, whose ability to remember facts goes a long way towards making up for the lack of sporting joy.
Are you one of those fans? I guess there is only one way to find out…
