  • "Blast from the Past" Avatar Month!

    We had a nice response to the "Be True to Your School" Avatar promotion earlier this year, so I thought I'd try something new in honor of my 19,000th post on this board!

    BLAST FROM THE PAST AVATAR MONTH

    Put up an avatar that represents your longevity as a Rams fan. An old picture of yourself in Rams gear, for example (mine is a photo of me in 1987 - age 19 - wearing a familiar looking hat). Or, if you don't have one, how about your favorite player from the 60s, 70s or 80s.

    Represent your status as a diehard!

          Ok, you might guess that this isn’t me, but who will be fastest to name the player?

            I'm guessing Henry Ellard? Maybe Ron Brown?

              Great spot RFRH. Henry Ellard was one of my first Rams favourites. The guy was top class.

              Back in those days in England, we had just an hours highlight show on a Sunday with all the games from the week before and that was it! Any other information was gained by magazines and newspapers but everything was well after the event. How things have changed!

                  Speaking of blasts from the past, here's a link to a new article looking back at Flipper Anderson's record setting game from many moons ago...

                    My favorite player is already my avatar, BUT...
                    It was 30 years ago today he broke the NFL single season rushing record.
                    Great hat AV - what's the white on either side of the logo, (which btw, I wouldn't mind if they re-adopted).

                      I think it said "Rams" inside the white stripes.

                      I don't have the hat anymore (wore it out a long time ago), but I still have the logo patch.

                              Ok, I loaded this from my home computer, so I didn't have time to crop. Here is my brother and I in 72.

                                Many of us here have chosen to upload a custom avatar. I'm curious as to the reasons you chose the one you have.

                                I've had many different avatars. Recently, I had Cartman, and that was in response to a post someone made. I have also had other non-Rams avatars, but the one I have always liked was my Underdog av. Why? Not only was Underdog my favorite cartoon when I was a kid, but it seems like the Rams are underdogs more often than not.

                                Why did you pick your avatar?

                                Anyone who has a broken AVATAR needs to go and reset them.

                                Cheers
