RAMS GO FOR GOLD : VOICES
Having been a loyal Rams fan since childhood, having bled for the Rams along with many other ans, this is a slap in the face. I wish Carroll Rosenbloom could see what his wife has done with this once-proud franchise.
KLAUS WENDEL, Yorba Linda
The Rams are a proven team. Their history has proven they can both lose and move. But as long as people have more money than common sense, the Rams will have a home. Wake up, St. Louis!
JIM LANGER, Yorba Linda
In time the people of St. Louis will come to understand what Orange County Rams fans already know: Georgia Frontiere and her henchman John Shaw have taken the football fans of both Anaheim and St. Louis for a ride. If the powers that be in the National Football League tryly wish to do what is best for pro football, they not only will block the proposed move of the Rams, they will also force Georgia to sell the team.

Talk about a couple of bozos! Clowns aren’t expected to have any business savvy, but let’s put (the Rams ownership) in a traveling circus where they belong. I will give them credit, the one thing they do know is how to put a football franchise in the toilet.
RANDALL S. DUNCAN, Newport Beach
I don’t like to swear, but I think that Georgia has done a number on all of the loyal fans who were fans when she was to young too know about football.
I think we should seek another team and make Georgia relinquish the name “Rams” and the hell with the whole lot of them.
JOE WISONG, Anaheim
Georgia Frontiere asks “What did I do wrong here?” I’ll answer her question with a few of my own:
* Why did you put an accountant in charge of your football team? John Shaw, a man who had no idea why a Rams player was having his ankle taped, should not have been the person making selections in the first round of the NFL draft--much less running the entire organization.
* Why didn’t you use the 49ers--the team you once you wanted the Rams to play in the Super Bowl--as your blueprint for success?
* Instead, you often solicited the late Hugh Culverhouse for advice. He was the owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the feeblest of NFL franchises.
In short, it’s time for the scapegoating to end. Coaches, fans or the city of Anaheim are not to blame for the Rams’ recent failures. You are, Georgia.
BOB LOWE, Irvine
You take an insecure megalomaniac, combine it with a wanna-be, absentee owner, and this is what you get. A once-great franchise trashed, intentionally. About as sneaky, cheap, and dishonorable as it goes.
