Rams Could Be In Hot Water Over Plane Fare

In response to the story that the Rams have bought a plane ticket for USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, a league source tells us that the Rams might eventually be making an even larger donation in the form of cash or future draft picks.

“If the Rams purchased a ticket for Sanchez they are breaking rules,” a league source told us tonight. “They can do no such thing until they are on the clock. I would think the Commish would get a little testy over that.”

It’s possible that the Rams didn’t buy a ticket, and that they floated the story to Steve Wyche of NFL.com [B]in order to advance a ruse aimed at getting Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to offer St. Louis a boatload of picks or players to move up to No. 2.[/B]

But if they went the extra step and actually purchased the ticket — even if they aren’t really interested in Sanchez — they could be in trouble.

We still think the Rams don’t want Sanchez, primarily because they have bigger needs. And they have Marc Bulger.

Though we wouldn’t be completely surprised by a decision from the Rams to draft Sanchez and trade Bulger, the Rams don’t need to take a bonus acceleration to help get to the salary floor; they currently have only $10 million in cap space, which puts them above the 2009 spending minimum.

The league knows they can take advantage of Danny, because of his track record of over spending. For such a great business man he is very foolish in his personnel decisions.

I wonder what the penalty is if they did buy the ticket.

Me too. If teams are found to be guilty of tampering with free agents, they lose draft picks( I think). I wonder if the penalty would be similar.

You'd think the penalty would be worse

Why worse? It seems to me to be a similar offense. Breaking league rules regarding acquiring players.

Steve Wyche broke this story. He's believing everything he hears these days. Let's wait and see what the truth turns out to be.

Just like you are foolish to believe something said by someone (Florio) who despises the Redskins.

I hope they take him just to piss Danny off. Sounds to me that he's already got the private jet fueled up and ready to go. Does the league get pissed about that, Redskins fans do.

What's the difference between buying someone a plane ticket, and buying someone an expensive dinner?

The difference is time. The official wooing period ended last week. 10 days ago the Lambs could have bought him a plane ticket, a steak, and a case of Jim Beam. On draft eve, however, that is all forbidden, unless you are the Lions and Stafford has actually inked the deal.

I thought I read somwhere the Rams asked for and recieved permission from the league to start negotiating contracts if the Lions annouce they had signed their player(Stafford). I will try and find a link.

Thanks... You are probably right, this time of year rumors are flying.

They asked for it but did not get it.

If Stafford is signed, why can't the Rams begin negotiation? why would they need permission?

How's that for a draft - 32 teams pre-sign their first round picks!
