Rams Coach Jeff Fisher insists Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson is welcome to be around the team. Dickerson says he holds no ill will toward Fisher.
But neither man gave ground Tuesday in their feud, one that has plunged the struggling NFL team into controversy.
Fisher said Dickerson could not simultaneously criticize the Rams publicly and expect to receive special favors such as sideline passes.
Dickerson said he was not lobbying for anyone to be fired, but is holding fast to his promise to boycott games while Fisher is coach.
All this in a week when the 4-7 Rams travel to New England to play Tom Brady and the 9-2 Patriots.
