  • The Rams Looked GREAT

    .... until they took the field.

    I like the throwbacks. Granted, I don't think this team deserves to wear the same uniforms as the GSOT, but I am glad we jumped onto the throwback bandwagon.

    I agree, the throwback blue and yellow uni's (not what I'd call them, that would be the old blue and whites, to me, but then, I'm just a grumpy old man) are far, far better than the new blue and gold uni's.

    But I don't care what they wear if they just WIN a game.

    No, I take that back. If they come out wearing what the Broncos wore yesterday, I may change teams.

      I like the gold and blue but I'm more inclined to the darker colors myself.

        Hey, those brown & yellow uniforms worn by the Broncos looked a lot like my old high school's football uniforms...it brought back a few good memories.

        But they were ugly...

        Here's a pic of how they look now, but when I was there they were the same ugly brown & yellow.

          Stay with throwbacks -- just not TOO far back (1965 is the limit for me).

          Agreed on both points: first / foremost ... WIN!!! And yes, those 1st Broncos unis are probably the worst I've ever seen.

          I wonder if we'll get to see the Rams 99 away version; I kind of favor that one over the home set.

            I would do almost anything to have the Rams change back to the uniforms they wore Sunday. I really miss them.

            I can't tell you how many times I would have somebody ask who my team was, and when I said the Rams they would say, "I hate (or don't like) the Rams, but I love (or like) their uniforms.

            I remember reading an article (SI I think) in the early nineties when we were terrible. The guy was previewing the teams for the upcoming season. After he was done ripping us apart he said, "If I had to wear an NFL uniform I would wear the uniform of the Los Angeles Rams. They put every other teams uniform to shame".

            So to sum it up, I voted for the throwbacks

              We need to go back.

              I'm young (17), and I started following the Rams during their Blue/gold age. I'd love to experience the blue/yellow.

                I wish they would have gone back to the Blue and Whites with their throwbacks.

                  I wish there was some way to combine these answers.

                  I think the throwbacks look outdated and out of place in todays NFL. But I forgot how much I really loved that Blue and Yellow combo.

                  So my ideal vote would be... stick with the current uniform design, only with blue and yellow instead of dark blue and gold.

                    You know, this thought has crossed my mind as well. I just hate the gold. It makes us look too much like the whiners.

                    However I disagree that they looked outdated.

                    Browns, Steelers, Colts, Bears, Saints, Packers, Giants, Jets. All these teams have made no, or very minor, changes. (The Giants and Jets changed back to their old school looks).

                      AFAIR, the Rams colors are "millenium blue" and "century gold."

                      I like the darker millenium blue, but the century gold looks more like copper than gold.

                      A nice bright yellowish gold (like that of Notre Dame's) would look awesome.

                        I'm old school, so I really like the 99 superbowl jerseys and the ones they wore yesterday. I wouldn't mind seeing them in the 60's blue and white. I still HATE the ugly *****/fighting irish gold pants we have , those are hideous. Still I just want some wins.

                          I like the throw backs more. The material these days have extra gloss and it really looks good. Yellow is a little less intimidating than the gold, but it sparks the O IMO

                            Blue and whites for this opinionated, cranky old fart.

                            All that glitters, is not gold....

                              I love the blue and yellow uni's. they are the best looking uni's ever. Secong would be the Raiders with the Cowboys close behind. After that it's a toss up. Go back to the Blue and Yellow.

                                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....

                                Since a lot of us have been somewhat touchy on the subject of relocating. Let's talk about a New Uniform. I personally have disliked the new colors ever since they came out with those uniforms. I would love to see the new uni's with the old colors with a optional blue and white uni. something like these. What say ye. Let's post ideas, better than talking about something we can't control....

                                Small victory on the uniforms today
                                by RAMFANRAIDERHATER
                                The NFL finally listened to the fans and will allow the Rams to wear the Blue and yellow uniforms for 5 home games this season. They'll wear the yellow "color rush" uniforms in Mexico, and the ugly white/gold/blue uniforms on the road and during the first two home games as well as the preseason. No more navy blue and gold jerseys. It was reported that the Rams sent all the letters and complaints directly to the NFL and said something like; "see what we're dealing with here?", "this is what the paying fans want". Small victory, but a victory nonetheless. The Rams will introduce the new designs in 2020 when the stadium opens. Now is we can just find a way to sign AD.

                                Rams want old school uniforms now - NFL says "no"

                                Rams want to wear blue and yellow uniforms more often, but NFL says no

                                Since the Rams moved back to Los Angeles, questions have raged about which uniforms they should wear: The blue and white of Merlin Olsen in the 1960s? The blue and yellow of Eric Dickerson in the 1980s? The blue and gold of the St. Louis years? Some combination?

                                The Rams are working on a permanent answer, but in the meantime they’d like to wear the Dickerson-style throwbacks more. The NFL, however, has other ideas.

                                Rams COO Kevin Demoff says the team has asked the NFL for permission to wear the blue and yellow throwbacks more often, but the NFL limited the Rams to wearing them twice last season. Demoff said he’s working on explaining to the league office that the fans would prefer those uniforms.

                                “We have spent the year educating them on our fan base,” Demoff told the Los Angeles Times. “We forwarded them all of the fan complaints, the emails we get, so I think they’re well aware of our fans’ preferences.”

                                Demoff said the Navy blue jerseys the Rams have worn aren’t anyone’s favorite.

                                “It was always with the idea that we’d be able to revisit it during the offseason when there’s more time to plan,” he said. “Hopefully, they recognize the challenge we have and appreciate the connection the fan base has to the blue and yellow. If we can avoid wearing our Navy jerseys next year, we will.”

                                It’s a bit odd that the NFL won’t let teams wear whatever uniforms they want, but it appears that the Rams still have some work to do to convince the league to let them wear those Dickerson-style uniforms on a full-time basis....
