  • Current State of Rams Nation

    Hi I am a Saint Louisan, a die hard Rams fan, and a fan of all football in genral. I typically do not post on this site only read but I have to bring this to the attention of the members on this site. No this post is not about our defenseive struggles, Marc Bulgers MVP season, or terrible calls at the end of games to put players in danger of injury IE Kevin Curtis. This is about the current state of the pathetic St. Louis Rams fans. St. Louis Rams fans use to to come the dome, use to be one of the loudest fan bases in the country, and us to love their team. Now it is quite sad. This seasons fan support has been subpar but no where near as bad as it was yesterday. Yesterday was one of the saddest days of this Rams fans life. The dome was easily over 50% cheifs fans. When they preformed the national anthem when they got to the part were they say and the home of the brave hoiser Cheifs fans yelled CHEIFS instead of braves and let me tell you it was very very loud. Cheifs fans easily were much much much louder than rams fans... It got to a point were it was pointless for me to scream because obviously I was the only one or one of the few doing it... I know there are real Rams fans out there but they arent able to make games because of Money, travel or what not but for the Rich Fans who sell or give there tickets away to cheifs fans PITTY on you. Saint Louis fans are fake and are front runners in every sport they cheer for.

    Re: Current State of Rams Nation

    FANS in general are front runners and fickle by nature. This has been a BAD football team for 2+ years...what do you expect from the fans? Who wants to shell out big $$ and cheer loudly for LOSERS? The Martz hangover will last beyond a few games apparently. Perhaps next year things will look better. As I stated a couple weeks ago...the season is about to get real UGLY.

      The fact is when other football teams in the NFL go on losing streaks are 4-4 or anything like that they still have a fan base that can cheer ESPEACIALLY in a dome of all places loudly. And to have most of the fans their cheifs fans? IT IS DEPRESSING. We are pretty much the new Arizona.

        Unfortunately GSOT, some of the biggest and longest RAM fans still reside in Southern California; there was quite a turnout last week in San Diego. I have to agree that the majority of Ram fans in the STL area are part timers who are still celebrating the Cards World Series victory.

        As for people selling to Chiefs fans I have to think that it wasn't done on purpose. I know most season ticket holders put there tickets up on wed sites for the masses to purchase.

        I was there for game one and it was plenty loud, so until the Rams start racking up some wins I'm afraid that there will be more of the same.
        JUST WIN ONE FOR THE FANS

              Bout time someone posts a comment like this. I've been saying this for the past 3 years now. I'm a die hard socal rams fan and i attend as many games as possible. I also go to san fran and arizona and i went to the san diego game this year and also plan to go to the oakland game as well as a game at the DOME. The rams fans on the road games are more noisy, boisterous, and all out louder in every way shape and form compared to the st.louis fans. The DOME noise is pathetic, period, end of story. There is no cheering or getting loud on a big play like there used to be.

                The crowd was pretty loud at the opener against Denver, but you could tell the difference yesterday. My guess would be that they have a lot of Chef's fans there in St. Louis since they are so close, plus I am sure a lot more jumped over due to the Cardnials and all of their exploits...

                  Boy, am I getting a kick outta this thread.....

                  When I said something about LA fans and how we wouldn't continue to support a loser, as the Rams were in their final years here, it was because LA fans are lousy, what-have-you-done-for-me-lately fans. Hmmmm, seems St. Lou has the same problem. How funny. Team begins to suck, fans stay away in droves. And when your fan base is so much smaller in St. Louis than it is here in LA/OC, it has a much greater effect, I think. ... and much sooner too!

                  So, Misery fans have nothing better things to do? ...like celebrate a world series that ended, what? A month ago? Bruces4life said it about the LA fans. We still continue to support them when they venture our way every now and again. The San Diego game was packed with Ram fans.

                  Bring 'em back to LA. St. Louis had it's time, now bring the Rams home. Hey, in trade, you can have the Cardinals back.

                    Re: Current State of Rams Nation

                    Now dont be to harsh on Saint Louis fans like I have LOL. Now the team has only been here for 10 years and some change every game has been a sell out except 1 preseason game. Rams fans do travel well no matter where they are from. Saint Louis Rams fans are a different breed of fan. Yes some of the LOWER bowl fans are the rich snoby type that dont scream at all and only go win they are winning but that is the price you pay at any stadium with PSL's IE the personal seat license which makes it hard to the less well off die hard fan to attend every game. Saint Louis fans are classified as NICE which does not mean they dont support the Rams any less than any fan from Cali we just dont start fights and demean people like some fans IE philly fans. Now I will say this when there is a game in KC there are tons of Rams fans there also... I was just depressed to see how many KC fans attended yesterdays game .... But I promise you the Rams wont be moving from Saint Louis anytime soon with 11+ years of sell outs no way...

                      Hey dont say that it is happening much faster lol It is one game ONE the rest of the year has had a pretty good showing besides the fact fans show up late and leave early if they are losing like 5 minutes early, CHILL. Honestly I have never been to a rams game in 6 years that has had alot of fans from another team so if anything it has just started or is only a one game thing because how close the Cheifs are. Saint Louis is a great sports town I was just trying to call people out because I was so upset lol...

                          Re: Current State of Rams Nation

                          I would not say the house had 50% Chiefs fans but no matter how you wax it over, there were many many LOUD Red clad fans there.

                          I atteneded the game with a buddy from NY and he was amazed at the following

                          1 pulled up the the Dome at 9:45 am right off the Broadway exit with absolutely no traffic at all. Less than 2 and half hours before game time and the place was not crowded at all

                          2 Outside the stadium almost as many in Red as in Blue and white, and louder.

                          3 inside the staidum, quuuuuuuuietest place, except the the people dressed in Red, as he has ever been in his life

                          4 Since both of us have been attending games for going on 4 decades now, he made the following quote.

                          " This team was better off when they were in LA. When they move back this place will be a ghost town as no team will want to come here "

                          Can't say I disagree with him too much.

                          Anyone ever been to the Alamo Dome in San Antonio ?? Weird and scary that they only play D1 college bowl games there. Yeah the Saints were there last season but a prime example of what little interest in a team can have on a decision by the NFL.

                          I look at it this way, NFL teams nowadays are like your teeth, ignore them and they will go away. The LA would kill to have the Rams back and from what I saw at the San Diego game proves it. SoCal Rams fans by the droves buying any tickets they could get and loud and Rowdy.

                          Heck , the Rams parties in the SD parking lot made the goings on outside the Joines Dome look like a friggin morgue.

                            If they came back to L.A., they would be welcomed with open arms. I can't tell you how much it sucks to have the desire to go to every game to cheer on my team, but have them so far away. And then I have to watch the game on TV and see a lot of fans just sitting around not making any noise. When teams struggle they need the backing of the home crowd even more than normal to help give them an edge.

                            Anyone ever watch an Eagles home game and hear that crowd, and I mean nearly the entire crowd, go nuts and sing the team songs during different parts of the games? Gotta say I'm a bit jealous of how awesome it would be to partake in that kind of a game that has the atmosphere and frenzy like normally only seen in college games.

                            To those of you that get to go to home games regularly, do what you can to get yourself and those with you and in the sections around you jazzed up for EVERY game, no matter how good or how bad we are. If not for yourselves or for the team, then do it for us fans who are at homne watching from a distance wishing we could be there in person making some noise.

                              The Best NFL fans
                              by hawaiianpunch
                              I watched this video today about the best football fans. And it made me a little upset. the part that made me the most upset was Torry Holt saying that the best fans in the NFL are from Pittsburgh.

                              I believe that we as rams fans have to support them. ESPECIALLY FOR YOU FANS IN SAINT LOUIS. Now I know what a lot of you are saying. " We are 1-15 do you really expect us to go to every game?"

                              I may be wrong about this. But the raiders suck. There fans go to all their games. They may not be sold out always but they always go in full force. I drove from Las Vegas to an Oakland game playing St. Louis, when the rams stunk. And the raider fans were in full force. After the rams had beaten them, I had to complement them on coming out for there team. And they really appreciated it.

                              2 years ago when the rams played Pittsburgh and Chicago. I was watching the game and noticed that the rams fans there had dwindled. I heard more cheers on television for the other teams, then for the rams.

                              Frankly I am shocked at our fans. Maybe Im over reacting cause i don't go to games in St.louis, and Im not there to see it for myself. And hey for all I know i could be over reacting so Im just saying my peace.

                              St.Louis rams fans. Please "STEP UP" this year. I really never want to hear a future hall of famer of my team, say that another teams fans is that much better. Get a job, go to a game, be a true fan. If i lived in St.Louis I WOULD BE THERE EVERY GAME. "STEP YOUR GAME UP RAMS FANS."

                              Love you guys though.

                              What is wrong with the fans?
                              by RamsInfiniti
                              I would assume that most of the posters on this board are truly diehard and would go to the game at whatever cost, if at all possible ...

                              With that said ...

                              What is wrong with the fans in St. Louis?

                              1300 tickets still left? We are only 1 game into the season and the "fans" are giving up? I realize that for the majority of the third quarter and all of the first quarter, we play like horsecrap against the Panthers. Problem was, I saw fans leaving in the third quarter!!

                              I don't live in St. Louis. I live way down in Alabama and I got a chance to finally come to the game last year against the *****. I was amazed at how QUIET the dome was. Where is the passion? Where is the fight?

                              I don't understand how there could possibly still be tickets available! Nothing would stop me from going to the game, especially if I could get tickets for cheap. I wish I was able to drive to St. Louis this weekend, but it's just not possible ...

                              WE NEED SOME NOISE IN THE DOME THIS WEEK! The morale is this team is seemingly low, and we need a 12th man. Come on!

                              I might be the biggest homer ever, but I am sitting down, jumping around, screaming, and yelling at my TV every week, whether we are 6-2 or 1-7. I feel that I am a real fan, and I will support this team, every week, until I die. As a matter of fact, I haven't missed a single game in 6 years now, and sometimes it's hard to find a way to get them out of market. Now I have DirecTV, so I see em all, but I can't tell you how many crackshack bars I've been to in an effort to support my Rams ....

                              REMEMBER!!! We were 4-1 last year and lost several in a row. It's still early, and we can turn this around just as well: I have no doubt we'll rebound against the ***** ...

                              Rams 20, ***** 17 ...

                              New "Faction" in Ram-land?
                              by atcchris
                              I've been a fan of the Rams since the days of Roman Gabriel, and I've never had the priviledge of living in the same general area as the Rams. Lived in Hawaii and Oklahoma when the Rams were in LA, and in Texas since they've been in St. Louis.

                              We have a pretty big mix of fans.. still a lot of them left from the LA days.. and sometimes there is a little tension when the subject of "moving the team back to LA" comes up.

                              Sadly, there have been factions based on QB controversies (of course, each generation thinks they're the first to ever see a QB controversie).

                              Well, LA fans and St. Louis fans.. I think you're about to encounter another group: The Sooner Nation.

                              I have been a member of THAT tribe since my 2nd year at the University of Oklahoma. (believe it or not, I wasn't a fan when I started going there.. I was a west coast sports fan... but I grew to love the Sooners quickly)

                              Proximity to Dallas means that, in the past, a lot of Sooner fans followed the Plowboys. Lots of tension there, though.. because Dallas is in TEXAS.. and it's counter-intuitive for OU fans to like much from Texas. So.. a lot of Oklahoma folks follow the Chefs (SIC), as they are the AFC team piped to Oklahoma most of the time.

                              Many Sooners began following the Vikings when AD was drafted there (no.. don't tell me it's AP.. AD is for All Day..).. but make no mistake... Sam Bradford IS Oklahoma. Not only did he play for the Sooners, but he played high school in the Oklahoma City area. As long as he's a Ram, we Sooner fans will follow him and root for him.

                              Now, I'm sure that will raise warning flags for some... "are you a fan of the team, or the players?!". Well.. that's going to be up to some of our fellow fans here in Ram-ville. Are we going to accept and respect this influx of new fans.. understand their passion and help them gain a love of the Rams as a team? I know the Rams' organization will want to cultivate this potential fan base... will we accept these newcomers and do our best not to alienate and disrespect them? We're fans of Sam. We're proud of our Sooners. It's a perfect opportunity for a state without an NFL team to gain one. Hope we take advantage of it.

                              Ok this is on my opinion and it has nothing to do with you guys. But we have the worst fans at the Dome. I don't think they know how good they have it. I mean there at a Rams game and there Rams fans. I mean some times when the opponet does something good there fans at the stadium are louder than ours. Whenever we do something good it isn't loud at all. I mean I've been watching NFL Shortcuts for the Rams and other teams this week such as the Cardinals. And I find it very offending and embarassing that the Cardinal fans are louder than ours by about 500 times. I want it to be loud... Now please enlighten me. What is wrong with our fans at the dome? Grannit if were losing owell look at all the teams that have losing traditions. There louder than ever.
