The Los Angeles Rams are starring on HBO Hard Knocks, and last night was the first show. The Rams canned Deon Long after he violated one of Jeff Fisher’s two rules.
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher brought Long into his office for a meeting where he informed the receiver about his release. Fisher had previously explained to his team that he had two rules for training camp: be on time and do not bring visitors into your rooms.
“What part did you not understand?” Fisher said to Long after calling the player into his office to inform him of his release, via Pro Football Talk. “Sorry, but this is our world, man. We have rules and we have to abide by them. I thought I made myself really clear.”
