It Isn't Enough That Dickerson's Contract Has His Name on It

August 03, 1985

For the past 15 years, I have been what can only be called one of the biggest Ram fans in the United States. Well, last Monday, someone blasted my sun right out of the sky! Darkness has fallen on our city. Could that really be our (we do pay his salary) Eric (Dickerson) the Great acting like a typical, greedy, bratty kid who obviously takes his own signature to mean absolutely zip? Eric the now greedy wants to renegotiate his contract because someone said they would. Meanwhile, he's breaking his present contract, one that has his signature on it.

Alas, I guess those people we fans make superstars can do whatever they want. Maybe the moral of this story is that we as fans have to quit making superstars out of irresponsible kids.
