  • Rams to wear throwback uniforms for first preseason game

    Nice touch for the first preseason game in the Coliseum in three plus decades.
    The Rams will return to the Coliseum wearing white uniforms with blue numerals and a blue slash on the shoulder, with a blue and white helmet.

    Agreed, I think its a respectful gesture.
    “Oh, 100 percent,” Donald said. “I feel like the words, ‘Thank you,’ ain’t enough. You’ve got to show it... Instead of saying thank you — show it.”

          From the people I talked to in LA, the blog is wrong.

          The helmets will still have the gold horns per NFL rules; the pants will be the standard blue from the early 2000's, and the white jersey will be the alternate road jersey from 2004.

          I put as much stock in what Eric has told me as in the blog from ESPN, as there is NO mention of any throwback uniforms on the official Rams page.

          I think this is most likely a wait-and-see situation.

            I'm surprised with all the NFL restrictions on uniforms, the Rams are able to wear the old white and blue. I'm wondering if there are different uniform rules for thee preseason.

              Correction: Eric told me the Rams will wear WHITE pants, not blue.

              I guess I should have read his text a little bit more carefully.

              So - the Rams will be in all white, with gold horns on the dark blue helmets, unless the 2013 rule concerning "throwback helmets" has been changed.

              HOWEVER - that 2013 rule states that DECALS on helmets may be replaced IF submitted to the rules committee by the deadline AND approved by the safety committee...so, it IS possible that they MAY be able to put white horn decals on the helmets - but the NFL says the helmets "must be the same as worn throughout the season" and approved by the league prior to the deadline - which I understand is prior to camp.

                There are a lot of other sources reporting the white and blue throwbacks, but it looks like they're using the same article ESPN did. And you're right Sam, no mention on the Rams site, so we'll just have to wait and see.

                  I looked - the team may choose whether to wear light at home, or dark at home; opponents have to wear the opposite.

                  Here's the official wording...I doubt this indicates a return to the old blue and white.


                  Pursuant to the official colors established for each NFL club in the League Constitution and Bylaws, playing squads are permitted to wear only those colors or a combination of those colors for helmets, jerseys, pants, and stockings; provided that white is also an available color for jerseys and mandatory color for the lower portion of stockings [see 5-3-3-(f), “Stockings,” below]. Each player on a given team must wear the same colors on his uniform as all other players on his team in the same game. Before July 1 each year, home clubs are required to report to the League office their choice of jersey color (either white or official team color) for their home games of that forthcoming season, and visiting clubs must wear the opposite. For preseason, regular season, or postseason games, the two competing teams may wear jerseys in their official colors (non-white), provided the Commissioner determines that such colors are of sufficient contrast

                    Here is what Sam Farmer tweeted about the uniforms for tonight:

                    Sam Farmer ‏@LATimesfarmer 21h21 hours ago
                    . @WillramWallace uniforms tomorrow will be white on white with normal blue/gold helmets.
                    I tend to think Farmer has it right.

                      I agree. I don't like Farmer, but he DOES have more information about it than I do.

                        I'm watching the pregame, and the Rams are wearing their regular white on white uniforms, with their regular blue and gold helmets.

                          Small victory on the uniforms today
                          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.

                          Ok, so my friends and I were talking recently about this "New Look" Rams. A new regime, new franchise quarterback, new ferocious D. We then got on the subject of uniforms. In my opinion, I would love to see the Rams return to the throwbacks permanently. How good would Sammy B look in that royal blue?!!? What are the ClanRammers opinion on this? I apologize if this has already been a thread, but I figured since this is such a different team from past years, it might as well be asked again...

                          GO RAMS!

                          Are the rams going to use their throwbacks this year? If so, what games?

                          For some of you, I'm sure the most exciting part of his late night tweet pic with Long's agents was that he mentioned going back to the Blue and White Unis !!
