  • Change is coming.

    I think the change is finally going to happen. Saw a blurb today somewhere with Demoff talking about throwbacks (blue and white) and a permanent change (blue and yellow).
    My assumptions in parentheses.

    Point of this post is most of the photos accompanying articles, (regardless of where they are), ando n the website seem to be showing the Rams in the blue and yellow uniforms.

    Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed this?

    It's gonna be great when we appear at the SB in Santa Clare in the '99 unis.

    Yes, I also saw this.

    I got the idea from the story that the uniforms may or may not go back to the blue and yellow - that it might be something new, but integrate historical colors in the scheme.

    As always, there are a few who think it's an omen that the Rams will move...even though it was never mentioned or even hinted at.

        Rams hint at new uniforms (Kevin Demoff)

        I know this has been addressed, but.... It looks there is a good chance blue/yellow will be primary uniforms and blue and white will be throwbacks! That's awesome if this is actually going to be true. No matter what we will have uniform overhaul soon, Demoff says.

        The Rams have used various shades of yellow or gold for most of the franchise's existence, dating back to the team's Cleveland-based days in the late 1930s.


        But there was a nine-season window during the Rams' stint in Los Angeles, from 1964 through 1972, when the team's color scheme was much simpler:blue and white.
        And that look may be coming back.
        While interacting with fans Wednesday night on Twitter, Rams executive vice president and chief operating officer Kevin Demoff indicated that the blue and white uniform could soon be revived as a throwback:

        DEMOFF TWEET: "
        A ton of votes for blue and white throwbacks. I'm with you on that and we are working on that as an option long-term."

        Even more intriguingly, Demoff hinted that royal blue and yellow might be restored as the team's primary colors, replacing the current navy and gold:

        DEMOFF TWEET:
        @ashaffe: how about we abandon navy and gold and just use the Blue and Yellow as regulars and Blue and Whites as throwbacks >> could happen

        The Rams are known to be considering a uniform overhaul. In August, Demoff said he expected the team to revamp its look "at some time in the next five years." Judging by his tweets Wednesday night, that process is currently in motion.

        The Rams' last full-scale uniform redesign was in 2000 -- the season after their victory over the Titans in Super Bowl XXXIV. That redesign established navy and gold as the team's primary colors. The preceding uniform design, featuring royal blue and yellow, has been worn as a throwback since 2009.

          I could live without the gold.

            Check out the revamped website, as in hmmmm...
            Wonder if that's silver and blue, or just the way the graphics read.

              I'm know I'm in the vast minority on this (maybe even alone), but I think the navy/gold is so much better than the royal/yellow.
              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                I'm fine with either the navy/gold or royal/yellow but hate the all white or all blue. Also hate the white pants. The white and blue throw backs would be cool. If you noticed the Rams changed the endzone colors last year to white and blue.

                  I obviously agree.

                    I really like the current uniforms. Has a nice modern look in my opinion.

                        I actually like the Navy and Gold better than Yellow and blue, yes, I'm new school.

                          Would love the Navy/Gold like others have stated but I would be really happy to see the throwbacks the old Blue/White combo.
                          The restoration is complete!

                            Sorry, but bright yellow is definitely not a masculine color. It looks terrible on men. As a fan, I could not stand to wear those garish, bright colors. The current colors are fine...but the classic navy and white is what they should be wearing.

                              How can you not love the '66 to '72 blue and white's as a throwback uniform?

                              I hope they keep at least some gold in their uniform if they decide to make a change.

                              I really liked the all gold pants. I wish they would bring them back.

                                Rams to wear all white Thursday
                                by lordwhttgr
                                White is the color of purity. Wearing white is also is a deceptive way to fool the brain into believing something is what it’s not. White players appear to run faster and look thinner, just as players wearing all dark colors appear bigger and slower.
                                On Thursday night the RAMS will suit up in their white away jerseys and wear their white pants, white shoes and white gloves. Due to an NFL ruling, the Rams are not barred from wearing their white horned helmets from the 60's and 70's. If we see them is anyone’s guess.
                                If you’re going to the game make sure you wear your white Jerseys or a white shirt to show support.
                                GO RAMS!!!

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

                                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....
