    Re: Information about Rams for New Fans

    RUReady,

    Congratulations on becoming a fan of the greatest team in the NFL and for finding the home of the greatest fans in the world. Just a few more notes that my esteemed coleagues have yet mentioned.

    -We have the only female owner in the league and there is a conspiracy theory or two floating around on how she got the team.
    -The greatest sack artist of all time is not named Bruce Smith or Reggie White. His name is Deacon Jones.
    -While watching the Rams this year, you will have the privalege of watching 3 future Hall of Famers: Isaac Bruce, Torry Holt, and Orlando Pace.
    -Finally, no matter what the final record is, you are in for an exciting season with this team.
    Sprtsmac :football:

    Good pointers, Sprtsmac!


    RU, the Rams official web site is also a good source of info -- from team history to current cheerleaders. Here below, for example, is a page on the Rams variety of uniforms that they have donned in their lengthy existence with the league (psst: my top favorite has always been 1965-72).

    RUReady4Leonard [yes, I am totally ready!],

    Re: Information about Rams for New Fans

    Here are a few more entries in the Rams Lexicon you might see here at ClanRam:

    "GSOT" - The Greatest Show On Turf (dead, but never forgotten).

    "Warnerites" - Rabid Kurt Warner supporters (still a huge membership).

    "Martzites" - Rabid Mike Martz supporters (nothing gets a spirited discussion going like Mad Mike, except maybe Captain Kurt).

    S.L.O.P. - Scott Linehan Opposition Party. (not dead, but hopefully soon forgotten).

    "The Reverend" or "Ike" or "The Reverend Ike" - WR Isaac Bruce (you already know about yelling Bruuuuuuuce).

    "Hawaii 5-0" - LB Pisa Tinoisamoa (tough as nails with a huge heart).

    "Big Game" - WR Torry Holt (see: catch against Seattle last year).

    "Harvard" - QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (any idea where he went to school?).

    "The Bear" - Jimmy Kennedy (bear has multiple meanings these days).

    Re: Information about Rams for New Fans

    1. Homer Marshman, the head of the consortium to initially own the Rams, wrote a hot check to pay the franchise fee to the NFL.

    2. The Rams were traded for the Baltimore Colts in 1972 when Rams owner Robert Irsay traded with Colts owner Carroll Rosenbloom.

    3. The Rams traded away Ron Jaworski to the Philadelphia Eagles in 1977. The funny thing is that Jaworski's contract had already expired.
