  • Thank You Rams

    It was amazing, the Rams returned to a place that rejected them and the fans took them back all 3 of them.

    The San Francisco ***** never had a home game on the road in St Louis due to the great and loyal fans of that city, however, the ***** first game in the Coliseum was amazing.

    Not only were the ***** the home team( Like the Raiders when the play in San Diego, at 50,000 to 60,000 Red and Gold fans were in the stadium. Our group" Gay America's Team" was at least 5,000 strong.

    I didn't see many Ram fans, the ones I did not know anything about the team and got free tickets and were paid to wear Rams gear, we were shocked, I love the fact the Rams are back in L.A. due to the extra home game for the ***** and to think we were not good, just imagine when we get good, we could probably fill the stadium with all 49er fans.

    I just hope the Rams stay, but they will never have a home field advantage like St Louis, even when they were in Anaheim we used own their venue.

    We shall see, but fans outside need to know, the Rams don't have that many fans inside L..A. and if they do somebody probably is paying them.

    I cant wait for the Giants and their fans due the same thing at Dodger stadium, we have the superior team this season as we always do. We did notice that the Golden State Warriors are now the most popular NBS team in L.A.

    We shall see the Rams next year and look forward to an extra home game.


    San Francisco is supreme to anything L.A.


    Half of the 49er fans lived in the L.A. area. I don't think the Rams have any local fans who aren't paid to go to a game?

    It 's the same as when the Chargers moved to L.A. and to hire fans for the press conference.

    We don't have any Dodger or Ram fans in the Gay Area, no one has ever seen them.

    See you next season and thanks for moving back.

    John Lynch, on how his kids reacted to him taking the job with the Niners:

    “My 9-year-old started bawling, and she’s not that girl. She’s the one that was always happy. And she was crying, and I said, ‘What’s wrong Leah? Are you afraid? Is there some nervous anxiety about moving?’ And she said, ‘No daddy,’ and she was sobbing. And I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ And she said, ‘The ***** are horrible."

      I really don't understand the concept of wanting to put any sports team in L.A. - The biggest myth is the Dodger attendance, yes the Dodgers draw 3 million, bit 80 percent of those people are there to root and support the visiting team, unlike the Giants who draw 3 million and these are actual Giant fans, no visitors are allowed in the stadium.

      Nobody has ever seen a Dodger fan wearing a hat, probably if they did, it would get burned, there are hundreds of bars in L.A. that support the Giants and *****, but there are no bars in the Gay Area that support the Dodgers and Rams.

      Same with the Lakers, Golden State fans out number the Laker fans at Staples, Laker fans don't even exsist in the Gay Area.

      Its like a lie or an illusion that L.A. has any local fans, it reminds me of the Tampa Bay Rays who simply were created to serve the visiting teams fans, same with all of L.A.'s teams.

      Oh well, I will take it, because it gives the ***** a home Field advantage like the Raiders in San Diego, I remember at one point the Rams QB couldn't hear the signals because the crow was so loud and this was in his home stadium.

        Is this a serious thread or a goof??

        It never fails: a team experiences some success (after being largely irrelevant for years) then trumpets their "loyal" fan base and crow about their "outstanding" organization. Spare me. The Red Sox are the east coast version of the Giants, and their fans are even more insufferable. They went nearly 100 years between World Series wins, were pimp slapped by the Yankees for decades now can't stop running their mouths.

        In case you didn't know, the Niners were terrible this year. Arguing about SF vs LA superiority in football is kinda' like arguing about the tallest midget in the room- it's pointless.

        What relevance does support in the Gay Area for LA sports teams have to do with anything? Who cares?

        There isn't a Golden State fan in Staples who knows the team actually existed before Steph Curry got drafted. Strictly bandwagon. Lakers could lose for another 50 years, and they'd still have more fans and championships.

        And the Giants were a pimple on the Dodgers' rear ends for decades. Enjoy your success while it lasts because it will end soon enough.

          I believe this particular poster is of the species known as Trolleaus spammeron.

          Its amusing that he thinks we care one iota about his views of L.A. sports fans.

            For the record, I went to St. Louis to see the Rams vs. Cowboys, the year AFTER the Rams were in the Super Bowl and Kurt Warner was at the helm (until he was injured in the game). It was like being at a Cowboys home game as well. The Rams have had a national following before. They will again, it will help if they give evidence of a winning organization. The L.A. Kings have no problem even though they suffered DECADES of weak support. They still did better than the California Golden Seals. The Dodgers still have a national following, including disenfranchised Brooklyn fans. The Giants fans simply went en masse with the Mets. Except for the stray Barry Bonds Jr. or Willie Mays fan, there is not nearly as much history and folklore with teh Giants that keeps a national following for generations. The Giants have Bobby Thompson's home run, and that's about it. It is nothing compared to Jackie Robinson, Duke Snider, Gil Hodges, Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, Kirk Gibson, Don Sutton, Mike Piazza, Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Reggie Smith and so many others.

            I guess there is the time that Charlie Brown lamented McCovey's performance in a World Series in a Peanuts comic strip or two

              Game Attendance
              by NJ Ramsfan1
              There have been a number of comments critical of what is perceived to be poor attendance at Rams games. I'll offer this as food for thought:

              First of all, the LA Colosieum is a cavernous facility of over 100,000 seats. You could put 80,000 people in that building and it would still look "empty".

              Secondly, the Rams must win consistently to draw fans. No news flash there. This is a team that has been lousy for 13 years, and was lousy for ten years prior to the GSOT days. There is too much to do in the LA area for fans to subject themselves to bad football week after week.There are only a few teams in the league who have the luxury of losing while still having their fans show up and sell out their stadium. The Rams aren't one of them - nor will they be anytime soon. The Rams will have to prove themselves to fans before that loyalty is returned.

              And finally, the Rams need to build a base in LA. Yes, there are a number of holdovers from the "old days" when the LA Rams were a staple, but that is ancient history. Thinking you're gonna' get 50-60 thousand old school fans to go to these games I feel is extremely wishful thinking. Remember that this is a city that has been without football for more than 20 years. They've gotten used to that, and old habits die hard. New fans have to be won- and again, it comes down to putting a product on the field people want to root for.

              LA has a team (two teams) because of Kroenke's billions and the promise of a new stadium in a few years which will dwarf anything currently out there. I'm sure this will draw huge crowds when complete, but for now, we need to realize that 50-60 thousand fans is probably going to be considered a good crowd at the Colosieum.

              How bad were SoCal Rams fans?
              by hpbadger
              Ok. I am new to this bbs so this may have been covered before but I have read posts referring to "lackluster support" in the LA area for the Rams. I did not live in LA but remember seeing the LA Coliseum on TV jam packed with 70, 80, and 90 thousand Rams fans at times. After they moved to Anaheim I thought the angels stadium looked pretty full on the idiot box as well. In the 1979 Super bowl nfl films video there is a moronic reference to LA fans "putting on a show" or just there to be seen etc. while the Steelers fans presumably eat, breath and sleep Steelers football in between trips to the steel meal! Anyways, I never bought into this bidness about LA Rams fans not caring about the Rams....maybe some Los Angelinos on this bbs can expand on this . Thank you.

              For All SoCal Rams Fans
              by BigDaddyPace
              I was brousing the forum and a topic caught my eye about the Rams moving back to LA. I must say, that the level of optimism is astoundling to me because I don't think the Rams will ever leave STL in my lifetime. This brought to mind a simple hypothetical that I have been pondering for a while. Would you guys still be Rams fans if LA got a new franchise? Personnally, I don't understand how you can still support a franchise that turns its back on you (i.e. the Arizona Cardinals).
              I'm a Rams fan forever!!!!!!!!!!!
              I'm still a Rams fan, but I would support them.
              I would be a fan of both teams.
              Forget the Rams! Go LA Saints!

              Thomas: LA Rams Fans Show Up In Droves
              by r8rh8rmike
              LA Rams fans show up in droves

              5 hours ago • By Jim Thomas [email protected]

              SAN DIEGO • All around him, fans were engaging in the usual pregame tailgating activities. You know, food, beverages, tossing the pigskins around. But Tom Bateman was busy making signs. Here’s a sampler:

              • Chargers Belong in San Diego.

              • Raiders Belong in Oakland.

              • L.A. is Rams Country.

              • You Can’t Spell LAurinaitis Without L.A.

              “If anyone understands what St. Louis fans are going through, it’s Los Angeles fans,” said Bateman, director of the Bring Back the Los Angeles Rams booster club. “We loved our team and it broke our hearts when they moved. We want our team back. This is our father’s team and our grandfather’s team.”

              It has been St. Louis’ team since 1995, although owner Stan Kroenke could try to move the Rams back to Los Angeles as early as next season.

              Bateman’s club was among about a half dozen or so Rams booster clubs from Southern California that gathered in one section of the massive parking lot/tailgate area surrounding Qualcomm Stadium to root for their favorite NFL club.

              Among the other fan clubs setting up shop in the area was the Southern California Rams Boosters and Rams Central-Orange County.

              But one didn’t have to go to section P1 in the Qualcomm parking lot to see Rams fans. They were all over the place tailgating and wearing Rams jerseys, ranging from James Laurinaitis to Tavon Austin to Sam Bradford of the present-day Rams. To Eric Dickerson, Vince Ferragamo and Jack Youngblood of the LA Rams.

              Sunday’s game marked a rare opportunity for LA Rams fans to see the team since it was the first regular-season contest for the Rams in San Diego since 2006, and they were out in force.

              Sergio Nunez Sr. and his family came down from Palm Springs area, a 2½-hour drive. His son Sergio Jr. wore a Chris Long jersey No. 72. (That was Long’s number before Leonard Little retired and his No. 91 became available.)

              Nunez Sr. said he’s been a Rams fan “since the ’70s” and hopes the team moves back to California. “We’re rooting for that,” he said. “I’d get season tickets.”

              Maybe a football field away from the Nunez family, the Fitzpatrick, Martinez, Coffman, Munoz, and Salcido families gathered under a large tent — Rams fans all — to get their tailgate on. Most were from the Alta Loma area of San Bernadino County.

              “I go back to Roman Gabriel and Dick Bass and the (Los Angeles) Coliseum,” Greg Salcido said.

              All of the LA Rams fans in the parking lot were pretty polite when discussing the possibility of getting the Rams back from St. Louis.

              But Julie Fitzpatrick did add: “All’s fair in love and war.”

              And one member of their group said: “If Stan Kroenke were here, I’d give him a hug.”...

              Are the Rams better off without fans in the stadiums?
              by general counsel
              Ironic thought. The Rams might be better off without fans in NFL stadiums this year. I have yet to see fans in LA provide any overwhelming home field advantage. In fact, there have been game where opposing fans are screaming as loud as our own fans in our stadium. Not the case in most games on the road where the Rams have to deal with serious crowd noise. Playing the games in silence in all liklihood will not disadvantage the Rams and may actually help. A sad commentary in sad times.

              Ramming speed to all
