  • 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.

          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), ďStockings,Ē 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.

                          Do you think that we need Pre-season??
                          by majorram
                          The more I think bout this issue the more I hate Pre-season, it just seems a waste of great players, aka RT Jansen of the Redskins..and I'm sure the body count we grow.....What about reducing the number of games to two instead of four... is it greedy owners looking for more revenue???????....I know you need to see what sort of squad you have and get these guys up to game speed, look at different players etc....

                          But to me I just PRAY that we get through these dam 4 games with NO injuries...

                          Does anybody feel the same!!!!!!

                          Preseason Takeaways
                          by shower beers
                          We had 12 this preseason, compared to just one last year. I don't care if it is the preseason, that's something to get excited about. You can't chalk up 11 additional takeaways to "it's just the preseason."


                          Thoughts?

                          Itís pre-season football
                          by Rambos
                          Lets not panic, it pre-season football, we only rushed four sent very few blitzes and played off their WR, we played it soft. I know it sucks to watch a game like that and that is why I did not go to the game, its pre-season football. Itís nice to win the game but itís better to evaluate players you need to make a decision on, itís pre-season football. No one got hurt itís pre-season football. Our first round pick got in his first game itís pre-season football. We did not even play our back up QB itís pre-season football. We kicked on on-side kick off with the game in the balance itís pre-season football. We through a pic with time winding down in the 1st half, deep on our side of the field itís pre-season football. We had two rookies on the O-line playing together itís pre-season football.

                          Just try and remember itís pre-season football.
