Question on Rams' throwbacks...

Recommended Posts

Regarding the Rams' old Royal Blue and Yellow outfits, was "Yellow" the official name or was there another designation for it?

That pants stripe always killed me. There's no white ANYWHERE ELSE in the uniform other than that.

I think it looks fine at least in that picture with the amount of white accessories like undershirts, tape, elbow pads, and neck rolls. Players wore a whole lot of armor in the 80s. Also, their last names are white

Except the NoB.

And the undershirts, and the socks, but we can maybe overlook those. Names are a bigger one.

The bigger issue for me with the stripes was that they were just out-of-place on that uniform, regardless of color. Solid gold pants would have worked better. The Titans have the same issue today.

I think the rams' horn design on those older outfits looked way better than their current throwbacks. The horns were wider, but I guess the current "no sleeves" trend makes that somewhat impractical.

Great minds think alike.

Or instead of creating the no stripe look and possibly making the team look a little amateurish, you use the filler tool and get rid of the white on that home uniform. That improves this look, IMO.

pardon the quick and messy photo edit

You know, I always liked the white stripe on the pants, but replacing white with yellow does make the uniform look better.

I love the idea of blue and yellow, only. I would not be opposed to losing the horns on the sleeves. While I realize that uniforms are not a literal translation of the mascot they represent, Rams don't have horns on their shoulders.

Actually, yes, there is another designation for it. It is called BRING THIS BACK RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rumors are that you may get your wish...

Let's hope the helmet color actually matches the jerseys this time.

I disagree, especially about the Titans, who just need to put the stripes from their white pants on the helmets. The solution for those Rams jerseys was to make the numbers white. There was enough yellow on the shoulders. Plus, stripeless pants are amateurish and those Rams pants looked great on their own.

Were the Rams the last NFL team to use heat-pressed jersey numbers?

No. The Bills used them through the end of their Super Bowl set in 2001. And of course, the Buccaneers used heat-pressed numbers for authenticity's sake on their creamsicle throwbacks the last few years.

The RedSkins had heat pressed numbers until the late 90s...was it adidas who finally changed that for them?
