  • Philyaw Undergoes Successful Surgery

    Chicago Rush quarterback Raymond Philyaw underwent successful surgery Friday afternoon to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and a torn meniscus in his right knee, the Rush announced today.

    Philyaw suffered the injury on a 16-yard scramble early in the second quarter of the team’s June 12 AFL semifinal game in San Jose.

    The 45-minute procedure, performed by Dr. Brian Cole at the Rush Surgicenter in Chicago, was a success and Philyaw is expected to make a full recovery.

    “Raymond will begin his rehab next week,” said Rush team doctor Raj Khanna. “We expect him to be ready to go in time for the start of the 2005 season.”

    After signing as a free agent last October, Philyaw became an integral part of the Rush, helping to lead the team to an 11-5 record, the Central Division title and the AFL semifinals. During the regular season he connected on 247 of 389 passes for 3,053 yards and 52 touchdowns, while only throwing four interceptions. In addition, Philyaw rushed for 57 yards and a career-high 11 touchdowns.

    Reservations for 2005 season tickets currently are being accepted. In honor of Chicago’s fifth anniversary season, the Rush is offering fans the opportunity to reserve their season tickets for just $5 per seat. To reserve your tickets, or for more information, just call (877) RUSH-TIX.

    Rush Wins 2004 Afl Commissioner’s Award
    by DJRamFan
    Following its most successful season in franchise history – both on and off the field – the Chicago Rush was recognized with the prestigious Commissioner’s Award, given to the Arena Football League’s organization of the year.

    Voted on by the staff of the AFL’s New York and Chicago offices, the honor rewards excellence in the front office, as well as achievement on the field.

    “Winning the 2004 Commissioner’s Award is a tremendous honor for our organization,” said Mike Polisky, Rush senior vice president and general manager. “It’s a great way of acknowledging the dedicated and passionate efforts of our front office staff, coaches and players.”

    Chicago was the most televised team in the league for the second-consecutive season with 13 games featured on the “AFL on NBC,” including six home games. Spurred on by the team’s “tune in” marketing initiatives, Chicagoland ratings in 2004 increased by nearly 20% versus the team’s 2003 performance.

    The Rush also boasted significant improvement at the box office, as ticket revenues increased by 22%, helping Chicago average more than 14,100 fans per game at Rosemont’s Allstate Arena.

    Corporate sponsorships jumped 42% – and included partnerships with, among others, McDonald’s, Pepsi, LaSalle Bank, Ace Hardware and Anheuser-Busch – while the organization’s integrated advertising campaign and targeted, co-branding promotions boosted brand awareness to an all-time high.

    Chicago also experienced significant growth online, as its newly redesigned Web site,, doubled its monthly traffic during 2004 to more than 30,000 unique visitors each month.

    In competition, the Rush ended the regular season with a team-record 11-5 mark and advanced to the ArenaBowl semifinals before being defeated by eventual league champion San Jose. It was Chicago’s fourth-consecutive playoff berth in as many seasons, and second semifinal appearance in the last three years.

    Reservations for season tickets for Chicago’s fifth-anniversary season in 2005 currently are being accepted. In honor of Chicago’s fifth anniversary, the Rush is offering fans the opportunity to reserve their 2005 season tickets for just $5 per seat.

    Rams hoping to lift sales of season tickets

    The desire to increase season-ticket sales, and not the Rams' worst season
    since moving to St. Louis in 1995, was the major factor in the decision not to
    increase ticket prices for PSL holders, a team executive said Monday.

    "If you look around the league, that happens, that teams still raise prices"
    after poor seasons, said Bob Wallace, the Rams' executive vice president and
    general counsel. "Costs go up for everyone; the salary cap is going up $7
    million next year (to $116 million). So, you can't base it on that. Otherwise,
    you'd always be subject to the win-loss record, and we can't be in that
    situation. …

    "We want to encourage people to buy season tickets. That's how you survive in
    this league, with a strong season-ticket base."

    For the first time in nine years, prices for fans who own personal seat
    licenses are being kept at the previous season's level. The prices for the
    small number of single-game tickets that are available will be "moderately
    increased," according to a statement from the team.

    The average ticket prices for Rams games are expected to fall below the NFL

    In a letter sent Monday to PSL holders, team president John Shaw wrote that the
    Rams kept prices at 2007 levels "in appreciation and recognition of the PSL
    owners' continued support of the Rams."

    He also promised that the Rams would strive to strengthen personnel through
    free agency and the draft, and would spend to the salary cap. He also wrote
    that the team was looking at ways to improve the game-day experience and
    atmosphere at the Edward Jones Dome.

    The Rams haven't qualified for the playoffs since 2004. Their 3-13 season in
    '07 led to an unprecedented number of local television blackouts. As the Rams
    struggled, turnouts at the Dome suffered. Three of the eight home games failed
    to sell out and, because of NFL rules, could not be televised locally. Two
    other games, vs. Green Bay and Pittsburgh, sold out only because contingents of
    visiting fans bought up large numbers of tickets.

    Rams Sell Out Season Tickets

    The Rams will inform fans Tuesday that they have completed their season-ticket sales process for this fall and now will turn their attention to distributing a limited number of single-game tickets.

    After getting approval from the NFL to move from St. Louis to Los Angeles, the club spent two weeks collecting $100 deposits from people interested in buying season tickets for 2016. Each deposit holder was permitted to buy as many as eight season tickets.

    Those deposit holders were contacted in waves on a first-come, first-served basis, and roughly 24,000 of them bought the entire allotment of 70,000 tickets. By the time the franchise got through the first six hours of deposits, the season tickets were gone.

    The Rams will play their next three seasons of home games at the Coliseum while their $2.6-billion stadium in Inglewood is being constructed.

    “To sell out of season tickets in the first six hours upon our return to Los Angeles is both humbling and a reminder of how excited Angelinos are about the return of the Rams and the NFL,” Kevin Demoff, Rams chief operating officer, said in an email to The Times. “As both Los Angeles’ first pro sports team and its newest sports team, the bond between this team and the community is evident and strengthening each day.” This week, the Rams will begin selling single-game tickets, making those available first to the deposit holders on the list who have yet to be contacted, again in the order they placed their deposits earlier this year.

    Jake Bye, Rams vice president overseeing ticket sales, said “a very limited number” of single-game tickets will be released to the general public on July 28.

    “At the outset, we were committed to providing the opportunity for all of our initial deposit owners to purchase a ticket to a Rams game, working to ensure the tickets ended up in the hands of Rams fans, and creating the best home-field advantage in the NFL this fall,” Bye wrote in an email that will be sent to deposit holders.

    The team will stage a Fan Fest on Aug. 6 as an opportunity for Rams fans — particularly those who didn’t get the chance to buy a game ticket — to watch an open practice at the Coliseum and see the team live. The Rams said more details on that event will be released later this month, but that the event will be free....

    Rams Season Tickets
    by THOLTFAN81
    I was bored today just browsing the internet and was just looking up Rams season tickets (I live in NJ). I saw that they were relatively cheap for the cost of tickets around here. Cost you an arm and a leg just for a soda and a hot dog at a giants/jets game like 14$ for the two. If i lived in the St Louis area i would definitely be an owner of season tickets regardless. Was just wondering how many of you on here are season ticket holders? I think next season I am going to be making a trip to a game.
