  • News for the ClanRam members

    I spent an eventfully couple of hours at Rams park with Dodram while in St Louis.

    I thought I would share a couple of items with fellow Clan

    1) The gold stripe under the arm on the uniform is history for next year. It will be removed from the uniforms for the 2002 season.

    2) The blue pants will get an airing in the 2002 preseason.

    3) The white pants will never be worn as long as we have our present owner ;)

    4) Look for a change to the Dome turf in the next couple of years.

    There is more, but I require copious amounts of beer frist

    Keeping the Rams Nation Talking

    "copious amounts"???

    Thanks for the heads up, that really sucks, i like the yellow stripe. I will be looking forward to the blue pants.

    What could they be doing to the turf, grind up old tires so the rams bounce as they gly past everyone???

      The blues...

      Blue pants? W-H-A-T?!? :mad: Aaaargh!!! NO!!! :mad: NO!!! NO!!!

      Who is it that comes up with these fashionable changes anyway? :rolleyes: Good grief! We're just getting used to these new unis --barely two years-- and someone [who!] is already modifying the look?!? :mad:

      Yes, change is good but... give me a break! Why remove the lateral gold stripe on torso? Particularly, though, why the blue pants!!!???!!! Y-A-A-A-R-G-H! :mad:

      Yeah, its my taste and preference: dark pants as part of a football uniform is a BAD IDEA!!! M-a-y-b-e for PopWarner league kids, ok. NOT for college, NOT for the NFL, especially with those all-dark socks that go all the way up to the knee. NO!!!

      Gold-light-colored pants, yes; white WITH broad stripe (Ram blue) on sides, yes; NOT ALL BLUE!!! Pleeeez!

      Must I call Georgia Frontiere?, or someone else in Rams' top office to petition a stop on the blues for the pants? :mad: Gotta bombsack / smash / tackle that plan NOW! Ggrrrrr! :mad:

        One thing I have always liked about US football over english is your top/jerseys and gear dont date quickly where the strips are changed every year in english football, but why change so soon?

          these don't seem to be major changes, just something to make the team look sharper, maybe to help merchandise sales.

          Despite Jorge's veheminant hatred of the dark pants i really like the dark look. It'll look really slick. The white pants are kinda plain, but i really love the gold ones. The problem with white pants is that not only do you get to see jock lines (not that i'm looking) but you sometimes get those ever so unflattering grass stains. Just my is the best, but the blue pants should make things look pretty cool.

            Turf-wise, aren't they going to put in that turf that the Seahawks use? That's what I heard, didn't know it would take so long.

            I like the gold pants. This is a gold-medal team so it fits. The blue would be fine for a change of pace. I don't like white, shows too much dirt. Wait! Jock lines? Hmm!

            Don't know what the point of removing the stripe is. Maybe it's a cost-cutting move. Who knows?

              I thought the white pants with the gold stripe looked great. Until they get dirty. The best looking part of the uniforms are the white tops with a polished helmet. The helmets really look cool with the contrasting white jerseys.

              Dark pants with gold stripes remind me of a San Diego team.

                Un-Ram, un-cool...

                Yes, dark blue pants are "un-Ram, un-cool" You're right Ram3057, they would look like the bottoms the Chargers use! By the way, aren't the Aints also wearing dark pants now? :p

                I say, 'stay classy, don't go sassy.' Besides, IT'S TOO SOON TO CHANGE THE RAMS' CENTURY 21 IMAGE, for crying out loud!!! :mad:

                White pants are ok [Jets, Colts, Vikings, Bears, Dolphins, etc. AND Rams of old ;) ], as long as they have a broad blue stripe down the sides -- otherwise they would look like bakers pants; not too wide though (Steelers' wide stripe ok for their colors). I like the present gold look a lot.

                White getting dirty -- no problem! Let's play football!

                GO RAMS!!!

                  Gold pants?
                  by Fettmaster
                  I absolutly hate that all-white uniform the Rams wore against NY, it looks boring and bland, and it really lacks the color of the previous uniform. I just don't like those pants or the blue pants in general I guess, the solid color of gold really contrasted the jerseys and the uniform was uniqiue and stood out.

                  With that said, I thought Spags would bring the solid gold pants back (I'm not sure why), but I guess not. I miss that uniform scheme and hope the Rams wear them this year.

                  Anyone else agree, disagree or can anyone offer any insight as to why the gold pants are still gone?

                  p.s. I know I'm nit-picking ;)

                  Looking at the crowd, one thing seems clear...
                  by AvengerRam
                  From what I saw, there is an overwhelming preference among the fans for the old royal blue/yellow color scheme over the current dark blue/gold. I'm guessing it won't be until the 2019 season when the new stadium opens, but I think the change is inevitable....

                  What is with the blue pants?! I mean come on,
                  1) The blue pants are ugly
                  2) Our team color is not white and ugly dark bluish color..
                  3) Gold looks better

                  We need to bring back the gold pants. Blue jerseys, gold pants. Now that is a WINNING combination.

                  For Home: Blue jerseys, gold pants
                  For Away: White top, gold pants


                  And please, lets not EVER go back to the blue tops, blue pants. Ridiculous.

                  Best and worst rams uniforms from the last three seasons
                  by rNemesis
                  I think we had a similar thread before, but I will ask again. What were, IYHO, were the best and worst uniforms we have worn for the last three years or so?

                  For sure, 100%, the worst ones to me were the white on white followed by the blue on white, which was slightly better than the white on white, but ANYTHING with WHITE PANTS is tacky!

                  The best to me were (in order of appearance):

                  1) The navy blue on navy blue, at home: These were just so bad a**
                  2) The white tops with navy blue pants, on the road: These were just swaggerishly nice.
                  3) The retro blue and yellow, at home: I LOVE seeing the great memories, but lets always remember that we are navy blue and gold generation now, not blue and yellow.
                  4) The blue with gold pants.

                  Here are some combinations I WOULD LIKE to see:

                  White with gold bottoms
                  Gold with gold bottoms
                  Some black with gold and blue highlights

                  Mix it up, you know?

                  What do you guys think ?

                  Rams going back to blue and white?
                  by Nick
                  The team will remove the color gold from its logo set, reducing them to just blue and white, Paul Lukas of Uni Watchconfirms.
