  • Hooking Up in Oakland.

    I'm a die hard SoCal Ram fan going to Oakland for the first time with Faider Fan Friends wearing all my Ram gear. I'll be the only Ram fan in my group so just in case the situation becomes unfriendly I'd like to know where I could find my ClanRam brethren. I'm sure there will be plenty of Ram representation so at least I won't starve if I get booted away from the food! These Faider Fans are pretty rude you know.

    Been going to Raider games for awhile and you should get along just fine. The only time I see problems with opposing team fans wearing their colors is when they get in Raider fans` faces and get obnoxious. At that point I`ve seen folks get beat up pretty bad and then get thrown out. I remember 1 game against Denver where Denver scored and a lone, drunk Denver fan stood up and flipped off the whole Raider section. I swear it looked like a million black ants converging on an insect.

    Point is, if you can take some minor jabbing and be humble, you`ll most likely be fine. The Coliseum isn`t as bad as some might think. In fact, I`d say Candlestick Park has a much rougher element due to gang bangers making their showing at most of their games.
    Good luck and have fun!!!!

      "Can't we all just get along?"

      Most people won't be hateful to you if you lead off with compliments, such as "THAT is the most impressive skull I have seen today!" or "Most people simply do not understand the dedication you have to proper spike maintenance." or "Dude, you make darth vader look like a sissy.".

        Don't count on plenty of Ram representation. I went to the 2006 game in Choakland and saw virtually no other Rams fans. I've been to Rams road games all over the country and have never seen anything like that, even in bad times. It was a very tense evironment even though I was sitting with one of my best friends who was a Traider season ticket holder, so I sat on my hands the whole game, which I hated. Good thing I got my satisfaction with a 20-0 Rams thumping of the Faiders.

          Pretty good summary. Everytime we go to frisco for a game we've had problems started with us for no reason at all. Just lots of idiots at those games. Been to Oakland once and it was fine. The fans are more hype than anything I think.

          Oh c'mon me and brm we're at that game too and it wasn't bad at all. Sure I guess being the only Rams fans in sight could be intimidating, but the fans are MUCH better than the whiner jerks.

            Is it really safe to go to Oakland? I was originally planning on going but my first impression of going there with an opposing team's jersey looks like this.

              HA! You guys were in the empty upper deck while I was in the end zone with the crazies, wearing a bright blue Rams jersey in a sea of black.

              And I disagree about who's fans are worse. I've always had a great time at Candlestick (or whatever the name of that place is these days) talking to whiners fans before, during and after the games. Well, before and during anyway. Faiders fans are the biggest jerks in the world who feel they have to uphold some rediculous long past tough team reputation. When I put my arm around my buddy for a picture (it's posted on my profile page), the whole side of the stadium booed, hissed, yelled, screamed, and threw peanuts. Simply the worst fans in the sporting world to deal with.

                Ok well sitting in the black hole as a visitor is just nuts, but the rest of the stadium ain't bad.

                  Personally, I'll go anywhere - screw 'em!

                  I did almost have to fight my way out of the bathroom at the Linc in Philly a couple of years ago. I think they recognized my mad ninja skills and backed off.

                  Other than Randy, there were only 4 other Rams fans that I saw. I did hear that Chris Long's mom was in attendance.

                    I live in the Bay, Niners fans arent bad at all. The only place ive seen where tailgating to them is a linen covered table with some of the finest wines lol to toast. Oakland is pretty bad especially if your the only one there. Ive seen a Charger fan get taken away in an ambulance after he got badly jumped in the bathroom. Niners fans are just posers who "claim" red for their little "clicks". Stereotypical Raiders fans are one of the reasons why they never sellout. Most of the fans that actually go to their games are from other places in the bay like San Jose, Santa Clara, etc...

                        He probably would have gotten an elbow smash from me. Probably not wise, but I have faced down Philly fans in the bathroom twice.

                            Rams "Faithful" Is Sucking The Enjoyment Out Of Being A Ram Fan
                            by AvengerRam_old
                            Allow me to get a bit philosophical for a moment...

                            Why do I, as a Ram fan, visit Ram football sites with the frequency that I do? Certainly, its not to obtain information, as that could be done in far less time. No, the primary reason is to enjoy the comeraderie of fellow Ram fans and "homer" sportswriters who cover the team.

                            Unfortunately, I find with increasing consistency that the "faithful" with whom I seek to share my love of the team has an increasingly and somewhat shockingly prevalent negative component.

                            Today is a perfect example.

                            The Rams won their opener. Sure, the game was much closer than most had expected. But there was plenty of good to take away from this game. The maligned O line did a great job. "Over-the-hill" Marshall Faulk and Isaac Bruce had great games. Rookie Steven Jackson continues to impress. Even Marc Bulger, who made some mistakes, overall played a good game.

                            I have no problem with anyone who tempers such observations with cautionary words about the problems the Rams exhibited today. The Rams did turn the ball over too much, had clock management snafus and were generally ineffective in the red zone.

                            My problem is with the manner in which the criticism is expressed. There seem to be a growing number of fans and sportswriters who go out of their way to stress the problems and downplay any positives.

                            We've been down this road before. I'm sure many will jump on me and say I'm a "rose colored glasses wearing Pollyanna" or something to that effect. I'm sure others will say they are just being objective realists.

                            But that just brings me to my original premise. I'm not here to be informed of flaws that I am already aware exist. I'm here to enjoy the company of other Ram fans. I read Ram sportwriters not to be informed - I can do that with simple KFFL blurbs - I read them to get an inside view on "our team."

                            So to those who feel the need to be negative to get their voices heard, I'm going to try to just not listen anymore.

                            I'm here to enjoy the team, and arguing with malcontents is simply not enjoyable.

                            I assume most of you obviously have a love for soccer aka proper football and most of you know how Americans aren't hugely into soccer as most of the world is. Talking with Grounddog recently about Americans having a interest in soccer got me thinking, How did all you become Ram fans and/or American football fans at all? And if you did become a American football fan I'd assume you'd be a East coast team fan ya know? Not a Ram fan. Please explain if you have a couple of minutes since I'm very curious as to how this happens to be...

                            Another Old Ram fan has come on board!
                            by RAMFANRAIDERHATER
                            Hello everyone. I just signed on here yesterday, found the place by accident, actually. But, it's nice to find a place where I can talk about my favorite sports team. I'm in Huntington Beach California, and have watched and followed the Rams since their playing days at the LA coliseum. Unlike many of my fellow Ram fans here in So. Cal, I stayed with the horns even though that "b***h" took my team away from me and moved them to St Louis. Anyway, it's great to get online here and read and chat about the Rams. Tonight's the first preseason game of 2006, and I'm so anxious to see the "new-look" Rams. I guess one good thing about being a Ram fan in California is I get to see the game on TV, which I understand is blacked out locally. Hmmmmm, that situation sounds familiar. In the last few dismal years in LA, we suffered the same fate. Dwindling attendance and blackouts. For you guys in St. Louis, don't let that happen! Support your team, or Madam Ram may.... well, you never know. GO RAMS!!!!

                            It is clear that you really need me, the one true Ram fan, to clear things up for you all. You see, because your not really Ram fans, you don't know how to handle whats going on now. Let me help you out.

                            A real fan still hopes for wins and playoffs, no matter what. Those of you who are hoping that that season will end and that the team will lose so they can draft higher are not fans at all.

                            A real fan supports Vitt for now but hopes for a new coach. The Rams are going to sign Pete Carrol as their new coach so you dont have to worry about it.

                            A real fan doesn't worry about the front office as long as the players are under contract and things are going in the right direction.

                            I know its hard for most of you. Most of you started rooting for the Rams when they won it all (or are just following their husbands or boyfriednds lead) and cant handle that they dont win it every year.

                            The one true Ram fan knows that the team cant win it every year but will again soon.

                            All smack aside,

                            I know its been a tough weekend for you folks, so I just wanted to say hang in there. When we were getting blown out by the Cheifs and destroyed by the Bears, it was tough to watch. I think after the Bears game in particular, I began to lose my desire to watch. But Im glad I kept at it, because I got to see them turn a corner.

                            In many ways, its how a team gets through adversity that defines its character. Losing to Carolina at home is not really that big of a deal. Carolina is a much better team than their record says they are. The shutout hurts, but I have to believe that with the offensive talent on your team and with the occasional defensive showings, your corner is just around the corner so to speak.

                            Hang in there it will be all right, and seriously, you got to give the coaching staff time to acclimate to the team, don't demand their heads just yet.
