St. Louis Rams Fans Give Steve Spagnuolo Hashtag Treatment: #FireSpags Is In Business

When I was a young blogger in dickety-aught-three—we had to say dickety, then, because the Kaiser Chiefs had stolen our word twenty—a man what wanted to tell a head coach he should be fired would buy a novelty domain about. Now all you need is a Twitter hashtag, and St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo now has his own: #FireSpags.

Some good early work from @Shields3L: "Finish this Spags quote at today's press conference: 'I thought we battled hard and we're okay until __________'."

I think that's what's been the most infuriating about Steve Spagnuolo this season, aside from the terrible and ostensibly fluky plays that keep burning the team: He isn't acting like he's worried about the team, and he isn't even acting like he's not worried about the team. He's not putting out the fire and he's not fiddling while the team burns. He's just running a series of increasingly anodyne press conferences that are as confusing and inexplicably deadening as the ways his team has managed to lose.

And that is how you get a hashtag calling for your head in dickety-eleven.
