With Dickerson Trade and Irvin Suspension, Mediocrity Is Attained

November 07, 1987

The Rams were once a tremendous football organization, dedicated to winning a Super Bowl championship. That was before Georgia Frontiere took over. In the eight seasons that Carroll Rosenbloom ran the team, the Rams placed first seven times, were in the NFC championship games five times, the Super Bowl once, and could have made it several more times with some breaks.

Since Georgia took over, however, except to mention her dedication to a championship in the Ram media guide, her only dedication has been to making a lot of money. Any disgruntled star athlete looking for a higher salary would suffer the wrath of Georgia--forget the impact on the team. Jack Reynolds, Bob Brudzinski, Vince Ferragamo and now Eric Dickerson are let go.

Sure, the Rams made the playoffs the last four years, with Dickerson, but did anyone think they had a chance of winning?

It's obvious Georgia is more interested in the bottom line than the offensive line. She should sell the team to someone who really cares about winning.
