And, to their credit, I really think the Rams wanted to get to LA and take the temperature there before committing to anything. Sure, the throwbacks seemed the most popular choice when they still had a business address in Missouri, but things can look very different once you’re actually on the ground in the hometown.

 

The idea was a solid one, but in practice it resulted in treading water in awful, placeholder Frankenstein’s Monster uniforms before they can unveil the new ones.

Except it’s not like the Tigers. None of this feels intentional. I would say the rams are desperately trying to get away from their St. Louis look and move back to the Greatest Show on Turf/previous LA look. The Tigers dual look works because they work together. And because it works better for baseball in general. The Giants work the dual design look because it works and because the looks still match. The rams don’t it looks like half a rebrand, because it is half a rebrand. The road jersey looks straight out of 07, while the home is a modern classic. I can’t wait till they finally fix this mess of an identity and find something to stick with for the next 30 years.

 

You’re correct in that what they’ve done is a mess and it doesn’t look intentional, but I was under the impression we were talking about a theoretical redesign pairing a classic royal blue and gold (yellow) home uniform with a properly designed royal blue and white “Fearsome Foursome” road uniform companion, not the current blue/white road look with metallic gold.

 

Essentially, this paired with this as a home and road set (with very minor updates to clean things up and make sure the designs match up with each other):

In theory you could argue a number of teams should have a home uniform from Era A and a road uniform from Era B.

Oops, my bad then, I still think that wouldn’t be the best decision though it is better than what I thought you meant

I wish they’d go with the blue and white look, the YELLOW and blue i’ve never much cared for. And yes I know that’s an unpopular opinion.

Saw these and came right here to see if there was a discussion going. Most are just oversized logos, a lot are oversized half-logos. Some wouldn't even work. The way they sized the vikings horn, it wouldn't fit on the helmet. At first I thought the photoshop was pretty decent, but there's a lot to nitpick if you look close. Can't believe Riddell let this get through the door and the NFL posted it.

The first thing I thought of when I saw the Tennessee lid, was this helmet...

I actually kinda like the Browns one. That’s what they need to do if any logo is to be added to the helmet.

The Washington One isn’t bad. If they ever went the route of moving away from the logo, I wouldn’t mind it. Still would like the R inside the drum or the spear though. The rest are not ideal.

Reminds me of the original Bengals helmet.

I love this idea. Would the NFL allow though? They won't allow home and road helmet colors BUT could the Rams get away with home and road helmet decal logos? Very cool.

The Packers and Raiders are playing on an 80-yard field tonight in Winnipeg due to poor field conditions in the end zones (holes where the CFL goal posts are). The new end zones are between the regular goal lines and the 10s. No kickoffs because of the shortened field.

Good question. The NFL allowed the Jets to tinker with their face mask color midseason a few years ago, so at the very least I think they have a good argument for precedence.

Only the Raiders could play a game on a football field that's too big and wind up with a football field that's too small.
