Rams Arrendance 19 % above normal Sunday

I missed the first part of the first quarter of the game. When I got home I turned on the television and started settling in for the game.

It was unsettling!! Before I could kick back, the crowd at the dome in St Louis was erupting in cheering. I wondered what disaster had befallen the Packers.

No worries, Packer fans were out in force.

"That's just a tribute to the Packer organization — the tradition and history of the Packers," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. "They travel well. They do that wherever they go."

Defensive end Chris Long added: "I expected that they'd be well-represented here. We just never got the chance to quiet them down."

Even if you use the St Louis Post-Dispatch conservative number, that is a lot of money spent in St Louis. 10,000 tickets at $100 is a million dollars; call it 2000 extra motel rooms rented at $80 and perhaps a 1000 car rentals at $40 plus meals ans concessions.


Rams fans without commercial interests had some less generous opinions:

You would never see an honest video like this in some cities.

No lame excuses

I like that message board thread. Young team compared to our old farts in Green and Gold who average .33 years older, at 5th youngest. Difference is our young team is experienced. We've been top 5 in youngest for at least the last 5 years.

I liked the stat they gave during the game. 46 players on the 53 man roster have only been Packers. Way to go Ted.


And the Kuhn chant. I might make that into a ring tone for my phone.

I was listening on the radio on my way home. The crowd noise threw me off until I got my bearings.

The KUUUUUUUUHHHNN cheer at away games is great. Kuhn said it was a little frustrating to him when the fans would call out his name as he ran on to the field. A couple of years ago he said he felt like it was impossible to sneak out there without alerting the other team that he was coming into the game. Also the fans tell the other team when he has the ball.

I sent the link to a friend from the Peoria area. She and her family were there yesterday.

Lets put together a plan. Line up Arod under center with Kuhn and Green behind him. And as the ball is snapped, everbody cheer KUUUUHHHHHNNNNN, as Rodgers pitches to green out the backside and runs for the endzone with nobody around as the defense piles on Kuhn thnking he has the ball.

Wonder if it would work.

I doubt that the defense actually pays attention to the crowd during a play, especially not enough to make them think a certain player has the ball.

However, it would definitely let the defense know when he is running onto the field. That makes sense.

While I am not surprised there was an abundance of Packers fans at the St. Louis game (it was the same way in '09), you gotta think a good chunk of their fan base was traveling to San Francisco or just more interested in prepping for the Cardinals game.

Pack fans travel well.

1) Yes I was posting in the dark and the "r" key is next to the "t" key.

2) The video in the 2nd post is both accurate and good news coverage.

3) One of the most telling stats given by FOX about the game was that the Rams had the most "new" players on their roster with 27. Clearly Fisher is rebuilding the Rams team with that much turnover.

Conversely, they said that the Packers had 46 players that had begun their careers in Green Bay (again the most in the NFL).

That got me to think who were the 7 that hadn't started as Packers. I started thinking defense:
Pickett
Woodson
Bush
Tramon Williams
Kuhn
They mentioned Crabtree on the air otherwise I would have had to look up the answer.
I couldn't think of the last one for a long time and then it hit me, Saturday.

There isn't much outside influence on the Packers.

St Louis is an easy drive.. plus it is a nice place to visit. Call it the Metrodome of mid central America. We shall fill it and call it home for a day.

The bonus yesterday, the St. Louis Cardinals lost.. that Brewer blood was warmed just a little upon that result.
