Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

Recommended Posts

That looks absolutely terrible. It's clear Kroenke was a star pupil at the Spanos School of Branding. He excels at giving the fans what they don't want.

They can't change colors until 2019. Yesterday someone posted a twitter post from an NFL official on this board that the Rams requested to switch back to royal blue and gold for 2016-2019 but were denied by the NFL.

 

The only way they can make a change for now is to use only their existing colors. (Hence why there was no gray face mask option since it needed to match with their current color palette).

I think most people (here, at least) understand that, it's more the decision to go through with the changes you can make and have a mish mash of colors on your uniform rather than just wait a few years to change everything all at once. I've never been a huge fan of the 2000 and onwards Rams' uniforms, but they look a heck of a lot better as a whole than an attempt to play mix and match with jerseys and helmets from different uniform sets.

 

I'm almost rooting for every team they play on the road in 2017 to wear their white jerseys just so the Rams have to wear navy and reveal this full extent of this catastrophe to the NFL as a whole.

"The Rams went to their white jerseys for both home and road games in 2016, their first year back in Los Angeles.

 

On the road, they wore blue pants with gold stripes. Those stripes will now be white."

Is there anyone who would be able to mock up what their road uniform will look like? White horn helmet with white facemask, white with gold uniform, and now navy pants with the white stripe. Thanks guys!

The Rams have the potential to wear their dark jerseys three times with away games against Dallas, Jacksonville, and Tennessee. I can't wait to see these catastrophes.

they could avoid catastrophe if they play Dallas on Thanksgiving, leading to them wearing their white against Dallas' navy, and wearing the blue/yellow throwback at Tennessee and Jacksonville.

I was hoping that they would wear their throwbacks against Tampa Bay last year, but they instead wore their throwbacks for two home games. 

 

You know what else is funny about this reversion to white and blue? Their colour rush jersey is totally yellow. That could also help if they're scheduled against Dallas or Tennessee for a colour rush game.

what was the point of changing the logo, pants and helmet if they won't (or can't) change the main jersey? Might as well left it alone.

Throwing a bone to a fanbase that's right now forced to wait out two more transitional years with a new coaching staff and another team entering the market.  If nothing else they can at least make try to tweak the uniforms that represent the team being ripped away by Georgia to bide time until they can scrap everything for hopefully a modern take on the royal and athletic gold.

Yeah, I think that's it. 

 

I personally would rather they just stay put until the total overhaul, but I can also appreciate them wanting to make some changes to de-St Louis their look before then.

I agree. Stay the same, just changing to all white as much as possible. If they were to change the pants I'd have rather they did this which I've shown before.

I'm not so advanced that I can take screenshots with my Xbox, but I played a game as the Rams with these settings: 1960s helmet, home (white) jersey, 1960s pants, "official" (current) socks. It actually doesn't look that bad, considering that the gold on the jersey is so minimal that it disappears in the navy-whiteness of it all.

 

However, blue and yellow looks infinitely better.

Yeah, I don't think what the Rams have unveiled for next year is a bad look at all.  It's certainly better than anything they've worn since 2012.  It's just not better than updating their throwback uniforms would be.

If they used the gold pants then their uniforms would still be in the upper echelon of the NFL looks and none of this would be an issue (considering that they're committed to changing in '19). 

 

It's incredible that those things are being eaten by moths when there was a time that some considered their look among the top in the league. They even made side panels work since they blended in with the pants!

Unless you're a Rams, Titans, or Jags die-hard, I have no idea why you'd be watching those latter two games.

You rang ? :therock:

I would so much love it if they wore their throwbacks here because then I would at least have one good uniform to look at during the LA vs JAX game.

This is why the NFL needs relegation. A late season Jags/Rams game to see which loser drops out of the NFL would kill in the ratings.

Jags vs Titans

Rams vs Browns

 

Winner gets first draft pick.

When I see the Rams uniforms for next season, JV football comes to mind. Many times in my life I've seen JV teams with weird uniforms because the varsity team did a complete revamp of their uniform colors. Subsequently leaving the JV with new colored helmets with the old colored varsity hand me down jerseys and or pants.

I thought exactly the same thing. They should emphasize that and have some guys wear the old gold stripe pants too.
