Rams Coach Jeff Fisher Got Scolded By His Mom After She Heard All His Swearing On ‘Hard Knocks’
The NFL finally returned to Los Angeles this season, as the Rams gave a big fuck you to the city of St. Louis by moving back to the City of Angels, which they left in 1994. With so much anticipation, one of the best football shows ever, Hard Knocks, decided the Rams would be the team to be featured this preseason, which has already given us wild moments—like head coach Jeff Fisher cutting a player because he brought a girl back to his dorm room.
That may be harsh as fuck, but Fisher found himself in some trouble, too, as his mom straight up scolded him for having a potty mouth and swearing too much during episodes.
And yet another lesson to be learned when your nearly every move and sentence is being recorded for public consumption.
Mom is watching.
Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher learned that after the first episode of the HBO “Hard Knocks” documentary series aired Tuesday night, capturing him using some R-rated language. The next day, a phone call came.
“I got one of these yesterday, ‘Jeffrey!'” Fisher said Thursday. “This is from Mom. So I said, ‘Sorry, Mom. That’s our world. I’ll try to do better.'”
“When I hear ‘Jeffrey!’ It’s uh-oh. Something went wrong.”
Love that she still refers to him as Jeffrey.
The ESPN article mentions the segment that got mom so upset was Fisher addressing the team on the second day of camp, saying this to his squad:
“Little things are important, you follow me?” Fisher said. “I am not fucking going 7-9 or 8-8 or 9-7, OK? Or 10-6 for that matter. This team is too talented. I am not going to settle for that, OK? I know what I am doing. We had some 7-9 bullshit this morning. Now, Deon’s gone. That is 7-9 bullshit. We don’t need it.”
Given Fisher’s mom’s reaction, it might be time for him to talk with the editing guys and make sure he doesn’t get in anymore trouble. Now go sit in timeout, Jeffrey.
