  • Cleveland to L.A. to St. Louis okay....but georgia...please change the colors back!!

    Hi everyone. I'm new to this messageboard. I am a big Rams fan originally from southern california. Believe it or not, I really did not care when the Rams moved to St. Louis. But one thing did piss me off, the new ram look!! it is sick. now i hate and loathe the chokeland faders more than any team in the nfl, but i give them credit for one thing, they stuck to their uniform. blue and yellow is the rams greatest color!! i hate that new color!! words cannot express how much their new uniforms make me sick. i have tried to give it a chance now for a year and the verdict is, it sucks! take a look back at Merlin Olsen, or Fred Dryer, or even warner in '99. Does that not look more classic??? i guess i am complaining too much. anyways, i won't talk this much normally. one more thing to say. mike martz is an arrogant jerk. rams fans, this punk is on his own personal quest for glory. maybe some of you might agree, maybe some might tell me another thing, but something tells me, if we still had dick vermeil..............3 superbowl rings jack! i hope that martz can get his head out of his butt. it's not everyday a team can have the weapons the Rams have. and believe me....i had to put up with so much "lambs" crap and ram bashing, but it was all worth it for my '99rams. GO BACK TO THE OLD RAMS UNIFORM AND KICK BUTT!!!!!! i'm looking forward to seeing the rams destroy the raiders next season. raider hating is another passion of mine, besides rooting for the rams. see ya!

    I LOVE the new look!!!

    I have also been a fan for MANY years and I don't mind change.

    The colors are muched improved, it is a hell of a lot better then powder "Wussie" blue and school bus yellow.

    We finally have a logo...much better then then the helmet that we had for years. I finally got to put that tattoo on my arm

    just be glad that they didn't take the horns off the helmet or change the name to the "Stallions". :angryram:

      Color my world....

      Colors. A matter of taste which in itself is ambiguous and subjective. Still, I know what you mean CalRamsFan75. I really wish we had the white and blue (circa 1966 -- 71[?]) back on.
      In fact, that's how I mostly remember the great No. 74. ;)

      But I must say I'm glad Mike Martz is our head coach! We'll be back my friend. Welcome to the ClanRam...

      Let's have a great season. :ram:

        First off, wanna say welcome CalRamsfan75 to the ClanRam forum. It's good to have fellow Southern Californians here who grew up as i did with the Rams. Glad to have you here. I disagree with you however, I think the new colors are fantastic. And I'm sick of everyone bashing Mike Martz. He is an offensive genius who has gotten absolutely NO credit for even taking the Rams to SB36. We just don't know how HARD it is to get there in the first place. Two teams that's it, and we had a chance to win it. I think Martz is a pretty cool customer, and works hard at his job, and all the credit goes to the players. The players of course DESERVE the credit, but you CAN'T tell me Martz isn't a good coach or doesn't have anything to do with the Rams success the last few years, and if you do, I don't buy it. GO RAMS, I"M behind you!! :helmet: :lid:

          Some change is good. I like the new colors. I think that "old gold" look is very classy. Of course, I'd love to see the old navy blue and white unis trotted out for a game or two for retro uniforms this year.

          And hey CalRam. You may not like Mike Martz but be glad he put the squash on those uniforms with white pants they were going to wear this year. Now those looked terrible!

          And while the sight of Rams' horns stirs me whatever the colors, compared now to the new unis, the old blue and school-bus yellow togs look a little corny in comparison.

            Millenium blue and New Century gold, that's what we have now. I never really understood the reasoning behind the change, but with the new millenium upon us and a nifty little Super Bowl win under their belts, it kinda made sense. Made them look more like the champions they are.

            Some still wear the old colors and I still like them myself. It's just that they've been that way for so long. And the gold numbers on the dark blue is hard to read.

            They needed to warn people a little more that they were planning to make the change though. A lot of fans came to the training camp in 2000 looking very confused. Not to mention feeling like they were dressed inappropriately.

            To me, it's not what they are wearing that matters, it's what's inside them uniforms that counts. :lid:

              I like the new colors. I think they look ..oh I don't even know how to describe it , but I like the new! I also feel Martz made some mistakes, but we are all humans, lets give him this next season to see what he's got.

                Being a Rams fan is great. You guys show so much class congradulating the Patriots. Do you know on alot of the Patriot websites, it is filled with cussing and anger from Raider fans. a raider fan went so far as to make his own website i agree Rams fans are laid back, but we should get a little more rowdy, not violent and mean, but more into it. i'm a die hard old school la rams fan, so it makes me vomit when i see preppies chatting on their cell phone wearing new rams jerseys. am i mad about the rams moving to st. louis. no. mad about the color change. yes! be careful rams, the media loves you now, but they will turn. they pretty much insulted the crap out of us the whole '90s. two questions for ANYONE? why are raider fans mean nasty complaining violent people? and can someone tell me where the heck i can get old school rams gear????:helmet:

                I don't know the guy of course, he just seems rather smug to me. I may be wrong. I just dig the old L.A. ram blue/yellow or blue/white that's all. What I like about ram fans, is they have just as much loyalty as raider fans, but not half the violence. you guys have to understand, i am probably one of the biggest raider haters you guys will ever meet. i put them on par with the ravens.
                GO RAMS!!!
                i know the rams don't have a big long heated history with the raiders, but believe me, i'm looking forward to next season when the raiders come to st. louis. i hope they waste them like money in a slot machine.

                GO LOS ANGELES RAMS !!!:helmet: :helmet: :helmet: :helmet:

                Uni Watch interviews Rams longtime equipment manager Todd Hewitt
                by JFMose

                Uni Watch » Uni Watch Profiles: Todd Hewitt

                As many of you know, the Rams fired longtime equipment manager Todd Hewitt back in January. Today we have an extensive interview with him, but it wasn’t conducted by me. It was done by football historian Robert Harvell, whose photo archives have been featured here on the site many times.
                Robert interviewed Todd last month, and the resulting transcript was recently posted over on Helmet Hut. But Robert and Helmet Hut honcho Curtis Worrell both felt that the interview deserved to be published here at Uni Watch as well. After reading it, I wholeheartedly agreed.
                As you’ll see, the interview has nothing to do with Todd’s firing. That’s another topic for another day. This is all about the work he did with the Rams, the team’s uniform history, and so on. It’s really good stuff — enjoy.
                Robert Harvell: Todd, when did you start working for the Rams?
                Todd Hewitt: Well, my dad was hired by the Rams in 1967. I was 11 years old at the time and helped out in the locker room and was a ball boy. In 1978, I was officially hired by the Rams as Assistant Equipment Manager and continued to work with my dad until his retirement in 1984. In 1985, I took over as Rams Equipment Manager, although my dad remained with the team as Equipment Manager Emeritus through 1994, the Rams’ final year in Los Angeles. In 1995, the Rams relocated to St. Louis. My dad joined us there for one final year. So all told, I was with the Rams for 44 years and have worked under 14 different Rams head coaches! Funny, I still remember when the Packers came to town in 1967, my first year with the team. I walked down the Coliseum tunnel flanked by Vince Lombardi and Bart Starr!
                RH: How many hours per week would you put in once camp began?
                TH: Let’s put it this way: Once camp started I definitely spent more time at work than at home. In at 5am, leave at 7pm, seven days a week. The only day I’d take off during the season is the Sunday of the bye week. The players’ day off was a treat, because I’d “only” work from 5am to 4:30pm. But I made up for that on game day, especially when we returned from road games, often working very late. It wasn’t unusual for me to spend the night at work after road games. During the off-season I typically worked five days a week, from 6am to 4:30pm.
                RH: Like most teams, the Rams have changed their uniform color schemes over the years. Do you have a favorite?
                TH: Honestly, I like them all. For sentimental reasons, I really like the blue and white. But I would have to say that my favorite color scheme was what we wore from 1973-1999, the blue and yellow, what we wore when we won the Super Bowl. In fact, when we wore those colors again for a throwback game, I realized just how much I missed them, they were just so vibrant. I really like the current uniforms as well, but they are so much darker than what we wore before....

                The New Stuff
                by Fat Pang
                Not posted in a while but thought I would share a recent experience.

                Like many of you I was excited by the new logo launch and the prospect of new uniforms. Upon the unveiling of the log and colour palette, I was impressed by the colours, but depressed by the logo's. I am a member of a couple FB groups and the reaction was almost universally negative. Personally, the new main logo is underwhelming, its like a senior high school answer to a local sports project. The Ram was okay I thought until it was pointed out that there is a phallus there and frankly, what is once seen cannot be unseen. Generally however I was prepared for it to grow on me, not like a fungus but like a new armchair; not quite the same but in time it could work out.

                Except it hasn't and I don't think it will any time soon.

                Like many of you I have been working from home. In my case, I have been doing so for four months but I live in Hong Kong. In that time I have put on 10 pounds and some stuff is a little too restrictive these days. Yes I'll work it off in a month or so but I need new workout gear anyway and as we are moving house at the end of the week to a beachfront place with lots of potential for waistline-trimming, I thought I would buy some gear from the club shop.

                Except I couldn't.

                I really tried to.

                But I couldn't.

                There was nothing there to persuade me to take the financial plunge. I have a fair amount of Rams gear and was more than willing to get more. My absurdly tall four year-old runs around in Rams gear and I have been stopped by American expats in HK who wonder why I'm wearing Rams gear in the supermarket. I have a STL Rams Faulk shirt that is kept in pride of place with my college football shirts.

                But I couldn't buy anything this time.

                I'm not one of those 'hate everything different' kind of guys but I honestly thought this was a teed up home run; they couldn't screw this up. I suspect they might have. I don't mind the colours, I don't mind the 'bone' but I can't unsee the 'bone' on the new Ram.

                I think we may have a problem, a problem I honestly didn't think was that big an issue...until it came to spending some money....

                .....did you become a Rams fan?

                For myself it was 1970. I was just a kid in Northern California (we had moved up from Southern California 4 years earlier) and was just becoming interested in football.

                I remember the Rams had just finished some good years in the 1960's and in 1970, '71, and '72 they had mediocre years.

                Then the great defensive teams of the 1970's emerged, and the Rams got a steady if not explosive offense to go with it. Their offense was the original 'ground chuck' a trademark of then head coach Chuck Knox.

                Well that's when I became a fan. How about you? When did you first become a Rams fan?

                Let's hear it!!! :-)
