    Rams to Kick Off 10th Season In St. Louis
    Thursday, August 12, 2004

    -Tonight’s Preseason Home Opener Begins the Anniversary Celebration-
    With one world championship, two NFC championships, three division titles and four playoff appearances, the city of St. Louis has had much to celebrate in the brief tenure of the Rams.

    “We’ve enjoyed a great deal of success in a very short period of time,” says John Shaw, president,
    St. Louis Rams. “And when reflecting on those accomplishments, we felt that it was appropriate to give the fans -- who have been an integral part of our successes -- a chance to participate in some of the 10th anniversary activities.”

    Those activities include selecting an all-time St. Louis Rams team at stlouisrams.com. Voting will take place throughout the season, with the selected players being announced at halftime of the January 2 game versus the New York Jets. Fans may also post their favorite St. Louis football memories and check out the ten top plays on stlouisrams.com.

    In commemoration of the milestone season, the Rams have unveiled a 10th anniversary logo, which will be featured in a variety of ways during the 2004 season including on the team’s home and away jerseys, on street banners and on the field of the Edward Jones Dome.


    Other components of the 10th anniversary season include: a special interactive anniversary section on stlouisrams.com, game tickets highlighting the 10 plays identified as the greatest in St. Louis Rams’ history and several commemorative game giveaways. The team will also introduce a new commemorative magazine, “Rams Insider” that will be available at all Rams’ home games; an advertising campaign highlighting the 10 seasons; and a series of public service announcements encouraging fans to “Join the Team” and give back to the community through volunteerism.

    I wonder if they will restrict voting only for those players who didn't go on to play for other teams. :tongue:

      Uhhhhhhh.

      Am I the only one who actually comes up with the number 8, when adding up the number of seasons the team has completed in St Louis?

      Am I the only one that when adding the coming 2004 season into the mix, comes up with the number 9?

      Exactly why then, are they touting this season as the 10th anniversary?

              Rams find another sponser

              Rams Monday Night Football Game to be "Whited Out"
              Friday, December 8, 2006

              Fans tuning in to the nationally televised Monday Night Football this Monday will experience a "white out" effect.

              Russell Athletic, the Rams' newest sponsor, will provide commemorative Monday Night Football white t-shirts to all fans attending the Rams' game versus the Chicago Bears. Fans will then be encouraged to don the white t-shirts in order to create a "white out" effect similar to what the Miami Heat did this summer en-route to their NBA championship. This time, the "white out" will be on a much larger scale: 66,000 plus fans as opposed to the Heat's approximately 20,000 fans.

              The"white out" is part of a multi-year branding initiative that the Rams and Russell Athletic announced today. As part of the agreement, Rams Park will be renamed Russell Athletic Training Center, Home of the St. Louis Rams. The agreement also includes naming the playing field at the Edward Jones Dome "The Russell Athletic Field" for Monday, December 11. The field naming rights agreement - even for a day - is believed to be the first of its kind in sports marketing history.

              "The Rams and Russell Athletic partnership is a multi-faceted and innovative sponsorship," said John Shaw, president of the St. Louis Rams. "Monday Night Football will signify the beginning of a multi-year partnership that will leverage many of the Rams' unique assets to enable Russell Athletic to meet their brand objectives year round."

              In addition to exterior and interior signage, the agreement will also include several exclusive branding initiatives such as product endorsement by St. Louis Rams' head coach Scott Linehan, who will don Russell Athletic gear for off-field opportunities. Russell Athletic will also be the exclusive apparel sponsor of the St. Louis Rams cheerleaders for all merchandise, and the Edward Jones Dome will have branded Fan Zones where fans will receive one-of-a-kind Russell Athletic jerseys. Additionally, Russell Athletic logos will appear on all printed season tickets, and Russell Athletic will have the right to develop unique cross-marketing opportunities with existing sponsors and consumer promotions at the national retail level to highlight their association with St. Louis Rams.

              The Rams and Russell Athletic partnership will utilize the new "influencer" marketing strategy, which will enable Russell to leverage every level of the Rams' organization - players, coaches, cheerleaders and staff - all of whom will then be involved in product testing, strategy and design. This approach will enable Russell to reposition, redesign and relaunch their brand based on the help of significant Rams' input.

              Rams To Receive Diversity Award On Eve Of 60th Anniversary Of Team Breaking The Color

              Rams To Receive Diversity Award On Eve Of 60th Anniversary Of Team Breaking The Color Barrier In Modern Sports
              Wednesday, March 8, 2006

              -- Rams' signing preceded Jackie Robinson's debut --

              ST. LOUIS - On Wednesday, March 8, the Anti-Defamation League's World of Difference Institute will honor the St. Louis Rams for their leadership in diversity at all levels and their philanthropic accomplishments across the St. Louis community. Bob Wallace, Rams' executive vice president and general counsel and one of the highest ranking minorities in professional sports, will be on hand to receive the Workplace Diversity Award. The award will be presented at a gala reception and dinner from 7 pm - 9 pm at the Starlight Roof at the Chase Park Plaza. The selection committee, comprised of community influencers and peers from across the St. Louis area, unanimously agreed that the Rams have excelled in every area of diversity and inclusion and are an excellent example of how corporations should perform.

              The award falls on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the Rams becoming the first professional sports team in the modern era to sign an African-American player - even before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. Kenny Washington's signing on March 9, 1946, started the Rams down an important path to recognizing the importance of diversity. Today, the diversity starts at the top with Georgia Frontiere, one of only a few female owners in professional sports, and extends throughout the organization in a variety of capacities and differences.

              The team has also leveraged their unique assets to bring positive awareness and innovative programming in the area of tolerance and diversity training to the St. Louis area. In 2000, the team established the Diversity Awareness Partnership. Today, the DAP is a multi-faceted collaboration of more than 100 organizations working together to promote the value of difference in our community through community and school-based education and awareness efforts. Themed "Make a Difference By Accepting Everyone Else's", the DAP has tackled issues such as race, religion and disability and will bring more issues to the public forefront in the near future.

Off-the-field, the organization has contributed more than $6 million in cash, grants, merchandise and tickets to area charities.

              Demoff is “amazed” by the “angst” in St. Louis ..
              by MauiRam
              Posted by Mike Florio on June 9, 2012, 9:54 PM EDT

              The Rams could be only three seasons away from having the ability to break their lease at the Edward Jones Dome and return to L.A. Or anywhere else.

              And so the current contractual dance between St. Louis and its football team, which is unfolding with the Rams donning their best poker face and necessarily displaying ambivalence to the fan base, is creating concern among the folks who want the team to stick around.

              But COO Kevin Demoff doesn’t think fans should be worried.

              “I’m amazed that we are years removed from even having a lease that goes year to year yet there is more angst in St. Louis than there is currently in San Diego or Oakland where the lease issues are more pressing,” Demoff said during Friday’s chat conducted via the team’s official website. “There is more angst in St. Louis than there was in Minnesota and the Vikings lease was year to year. The reasoning is simple — we’ve been burned before and now there is another lease issue to be resolved. Fans don’t deserve to have this hanging over there [sic] head which is why we are excited about our proposal for a first tier facility which will give St. Louis a great NFL stadium. Then we can finally put the lease/stadium/team moving discussions to bed and focus on improving this football team and building the winner that St. Louis deserves.”

              Demoff’s explanation adroitly distorts the reality. The Rams made a “proposal” for a first-tier upgrade that would cost $700 million without committing a penny toward paying for it, and the Convention and Visitors Commission wisely rejected it. Eventually, three arbitrators will fashion a plan for getting the Edward Jones Dome into the top eight facilities in the league. And if the CVC opts not to proceed, the Rams will have the ability to leave after the 2014 season.

              Against those basic facts, the Rams aren’t saying that they’re staying. Instead, the team (through Demoff) has reacted to the concern by explaining that the fans shouldn’t be concerned.

              But they should be. Given the ongoing absence of a clear sense that the Rams are committed to staying, there’s no reason they shouldn’t be.

              Demoff’s comments aren’t designed to alleviate those concerns. They’re intended to help lay the foundation for placing blame on St. Louis if the Rams end up leaving. Which in turn puts more pressure on St. Louis to give the Rams their first-tier stadium.

              The Rams, put simply, are driving a hard bargain. Taking real steps to make the fans not worry about the team leaving makes it impossible to drive the hardest bargain possible.

              And that’s fine. But the Rams shouldn’t act surprised that the fans are worried when the Rams have given them zero reasons not to.

              St. Louis Rams fans better not take team for granted
              by RamWraith

              ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

              Did St. Louis learn any lessons from losing the football Cardinals? It's hard not to wonder after seeing so many empty seats at the Rams' final two home games.

              When the Cardinals left after the 1987 season, St. Louis was rather proud of itself. Frank Deford praised our town in Sports Illustrated for sending such a loser packing. "Good riddance" was the attitude, and no wonder. As any football fan here can tell you, the Big Red never hosted a playoff game.

              But after a couple of years, reality set in. We had no NFL team. We missed it. And we paid exorbitantly to get the Rams after losing out to Carolina and Jacksonville in the expansion sweepstakes.

              Now only the Detroit Lions are keeping the Rams from being the worst team in the NFL, and some fans are telling Chip Rosenbloom to take his team elsewhere.


              There's plenty wrong with this picture, and with the idea that the Rams are the Big Red all over again. For starters, look at the obvious: The Rams won a Super Bowl. In 14 seasons here, the Rams have been to the playoffs five times and brought five playoff games to St. Louis.

              The rap on the Cardinals was that Bill Bidwill was too cheap to win. Say what you will about the Rams, but cheap they aren't. If they've squandered millions of dollars on players who didn't produce, at least they've tried. They sign their draft picks in a timely manner, they have few holdouts, and they try to fill their needs through free agency, if seldom wisely in recent years.

              It's one thing to withhold support from a team that doesn't care if it wins. It's another to turn your back on a team that has given this city more thrills than the Big Red ever did.

              Yes, the Rams are terrible. The front office has been incompetent. But it's still NFL football, and if you're a fan of the game, there's plenty of entertainment to be had. If St. Louis doesn't want the Rams, some other city would love to have them.

              Sure, the NFL probably is alone in expecting fans to show up no matter how bad a team is. It has the most popular product in U.S. sports, and that's the price of having a team. There's an arrogance about it and if you don't like it, fine, but that's the reality.

              Isaac Bruce had it right last Sunday when he expressed his disappointment at the empty seats in St. Louis and pointed out that the Kansas City Chiefs are awful, too, but their fans still turn out. In a smaller market — and bigger stadium — the Chiefs are averaging 14,000 fans more than the Rams despite having an identical record.

              The same goes for Pittsburgh, Green Bay, New York, Washington and lots of other places. They have had lousy teams at times, but their games aren't blacked out on local television.

              The Rams haven't been here very long, really, not the generations it took...

              Rams owe reimbursement to St Louis PSL buyers
              by ramsanddodgers
              ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - They no longer call the Gateway City home, but Monday the Los Angeles Rams appeared to suffer another loss in St. Louis.

              Court documents show a judge has ruled original owners of a St. Louis Rams Personal Seat License are owed a refund. The PSL contracts were originally for 30 years, but the team left St. Louis 9 years early before the 2016 season.

              Now, a judge has agreed with attorney A.J. Bruning that fans are owed a pro-rated refund for those remaining years.......
