LA Rams 2018 Uniform Discussion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

They should've looked to the Angelo St. Rams (DII team) for ideas on changing to new uniforms. Angelo St. come up with some amazing combos using the old blue and yellow color scheme. The silver helmet with blue horns, black jersey with blue pants may be the best uniforms I ever seen. One thing I havnt seen was a helmet the old blue color with blue facemask. The old helmet color never matched either, but now a days they do much better color matching and just changing the color of the helmet would upgrade the look. Angelo St. Rams check them out.

That sounds like an awful mess honestly. I’m also wondering what “old blue” is, do you mean royal? Because old blue is something I’ve never heard of before.

Where's the difference between this set of Rams and the ones in LA? Both have blue and white helmet and pants, with a jersey in blue and gold.

Idk I'd normally think it was until I seen it together. I meant the royal blue

The difference is they have the same colors through out the uniforms, not just a certain color on one part...athletic gold, royal blue on the helmet, on the jersey and the pants...where the LA Rams have white and navy helmets and pants, but navy, white and gold on thier jersey. Not that it's a must to have every color somewhere on a uniform, sorta like the 49ers 1994 home throwbacks where they had red, black and white on the jersey and pants, but the metallc gold helmets which looked great. What artist oe designers call accent colors haha

Those helmets, in that picture, are white with blue horns. There is no gold there, which keeps my point of them not being much better than the LA Rams in appearance. Not to mention the other hideous combinations that popped up, such as the silver and blue or black and blue combos.

There is athletic gold in there outlining the horn...gotta look closer..it is on there. Hey different strokes... I like them..I'm a Steeler fan just trying to help out, so I don't have to look at the LA uniforms any more lol. They can go plain or try to do something different, I'm just looking at it from adifferent creative stand point. As long as they don't do what the browns did haha

I'm a Raiders fan, so I don't have any uniform worries either. I still don't get the idea behind replacing the helmet horns by the Rams, gold horns would have still worked with both jerseys and you have to swap them for the Color Rush/Throwback sets anyways.

That is, without question, one of my least favorite uni combos that I’ve seen.

I think you can add the 2002 Redskins in there too?

The '02 Redskins are probably the best comparison, as they're one of the few non-Cowboys teams to wear a throwback as their de facto regular dark jersey. Though in their case, it was more of a fauxback.

THIS is how they should wear the Color Rush jersey: with the white pants (and navy socks).

 

Oh, and St. Louis was supposed to keep the dome within the “top tier” of stadiums...which they didn’t.

The Rams should take a page from Tucker McElroy's playbook: "Well, suppose we leave our blue and gold St Louis jerseys in the locker room and go out there wearin' our 1973-99 uniforms anyway? Whatcha gonna do about that? You gonna stop us? Goodell? You're gonna look pretty funny tryin' to eat corn on the cob with no (censored) teeth."

Sounds like the Rams took my suggested Tucker McElroy Approach, and it worked. Goodell blinked!

I haven't read every word of this...but what happens in the playoffs?  Are the throwbacks off the table?

 

The Rams are good and I wonder whether the NFL is bending because if the Rams go to the Super Bowl, they don't want to have them looking so stupid in clips that will be shown forever.

It’s been mentioned before, but everyone involved in the Rams’ branding should be fired out of a cannon for ignoring this look

Eh. It’s fine, but it’s inferior to both the old blue and athletic gold and blue and white looks. 

Better than the mix and match look they’re rocking now, but it’s clear they want to leave as much of the faded gold in St. Louis as possible. 

 

Which is fair.

Playoffs revert to primary home and away uniforms. They can request an exemption though. San Francisco did that in 1994.

The blue and yellow helmet looks great. The rest looks like a lazy click-and-fill by a 12-year-old who has bad taste even for a 12-year-old.
