Los Angeles Rams Brand Discussion

Recommended Posts

Just as a follow up, the more I think about this color scheme the more I like it:

They have a golden opportunity, if you will, to merge the color schemes of the two most successful and popular Los Angeles teams ever:

Athletic gold and dark royal (not navy) would give the Rams their own unique look, while referencing both their own history and the history of pro sports in LA.

That gold jersey Rams uniform from the 50's is easily a top 5 all-time NFL uniform. And I agree that it doesn't need white.  However I personally like both versions... the all gold and the one with the white stroke around the numbers.  I'd be happy with either making a come back.

Of course, Northwestern stripes are kind of pointless these days, with the vestigal caps we jokingly refer to as "sleeves".

 

How about a shoulder yoke?  The Rams wore one back in the 1940s:

(It's almost a photo-negative of the Packers of that era.)

That would make their jerseys a bit more distinctive.  And if the Titans move away from their shoulder yoke, it would give the Rams an element unique in the NFL.

Two new classic Rams jerseys are up for auction over at Heritage.  Maybe we can look at them to see where the Rams could mine some history for their next look.

 

First, we have a 1950-52 gold jersey:

Well they DID win a championship in that jersey so I’m game.

I think the blue has to be a little lighter, a dark royal as opposed to the navy they wear now, but other than that I’m game.

The California Gold is hands down the best option for them and would set them apart. I hope that's the outcome, just hoping they don't screw it up. It's gonna be kinda underwhelming if all they do is make the throwbacks primary in 2020, as if they couldn't have made that happen when they got the green light.

I’m finding myself more and more in favour of gold as the primary. Just not that design.

I really prefer the Colour Rush jerseys, and think they’ll look amazing with white pants and blue socks. I think that would make a perfect “LA” home look.

I would have zero problem with that.

If they could get away with it, they should make that their away uniform. They also wore a blue jersey with yellow yoke, which I think should be their home jersey.

Wow, Peyton Manning played for the Rams in the 40s?

I am definitely on the gold jersey bandwagon.  I love the uniforms of the 40's and 50's (Bob Waterfield, Crazylegs Hirsch).  Throw in an occasional blue jersey to resemble the uniforms of the 70's and 80's (Jack Youngblood, Eric Dickerson).

 

Just no yolks please !!!

Well, I wouldn’t want them to impinge upon the Packers’ throwbacks. Which I hear might be sticking around after their five years are up.

I must confess to liking those jerseys in a vacuum.  It's the rounded yolks that I think look bad.

I really hope Green Bay keeps those. One of my favorite uniforms.

Just like this. ;)

 

 

Perfection. I won't be too dissapointed when they ultimately end up in the classic blue-and-yellows, but it would make me a special kind of giddy if they pulled out something like these.

Probably the Chargers situation win, place, and show, with the delays in the Inglewood stadium a distant fourth.

Apparently a bunch of owners are unhappy with Goodell's job performance and one of the factors is how the Los Angeles saga has been handled, I wonder what aspect:

 

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21206250/dallas-cowboys-jerry-jones-owners-trying-halt-roger-goodell-proposed-contract-extension

 

They’re not wrong.  Goodell should have let Kroenke move back to LA as soon as it was clear that St. Louis wasn’t going to live up to their contract, instead of forcing him to stay another year.  Not to mention then forcing him to take on a partner he neither wanted nor needed.
