Rams At Dolphins Tomorrow

The Rams close out the preseason tomorrow night at Miami. With Sam Bradford out for the season with a knee injury, Shaun Hill is now the starting quarterback for St. Louis. The Rams are 1-and-2 in preseason play. They open the regular season September 7th against the Vikings.

The Rams continue to trim players as Saturday's final 53-man roster limit approaches. To get down to Tuesday's 75-man limit, they placed quarterback Sam Bradford and center Demetrius Rhaney on injured reserve. They also released safety Matt Daniels and defensive end Sammy Brown.

Michael Sam's NFL dream is still alive. He has survived the Rams' roster cuts as the team got down to Tuesday's 75-man limit. Sam is trying to become the first openly gay player in the NFL after being drafted out of Missouri in May. The final 53-man roster is due on Saturday.

Every election year, I hear the same complaints about the political party system, rigged elections and flawed candidates. As it happens, many of these come from folks who are rationalizing their decision not to vote.

I have a word for those who opt not to vote and then complain bitterly about the folks who end up running our country.

Malcontents.
