St. Louis Rams Redesign

Recommended Posts

How about royal blue and metallic gold? To the best of my knowledge not one single major pro sports team uses or has used that combo exclusively..and since the Kansas City Royals don't seem to want to own that color combo, maybe the Rams should step up to the plate and own it.

EDIT: now that I think about it, I'm almost positive the U. of Tulsa is the only entity that actually does use this combo:

This is from like two or three years back I think, but still illustrates how great this color combo can look.

And it looks awful, navy yellow, navy gold, or royal yellow are the only ways to go

Another point to be made is that jerseys look better when you're winning in them. So when Marshall Faulk was wearing the navy and gold, it looked great. But when the Rams broke a record for the worst combined record over a 5 years span, the jerseys didn't look so hot

I disagree. The uniforms still looked great until the team started messing with them in an attempt to distract from a miserable performance.

Great uniforms are still great, even when the teams wearing them are terrible. The Raiders and Packers have produced some of the worst seasons the NFL has ever seen, but still looked good doing it.

Yeah, the royal blue and metallic gold don't contrast enough.

My preference would be some variation on this template with the classic Los Angeles/'99 team colors. Their current set looks great when worn as intended with the gold pants, absolutely, but the navy and white pants both make them look ugly and bland, respectively.

I've said this in the past, but maybe enough people are not listening, so I'll say it again. :boogie:

For long time Rams fans, there is but one team that makes our blood boil, the one team that we hate more than anything: That is the San Francisco 49ers.

Everything about the 49ers(name, logo, color choice) is based off of GOLD.

So, despite it's somewhat pleasing appearance as a color combo and design. The old GOLD does not work well for the majority of Rams fans. It was a huge slap in the face to us and I believe this is why the Rams have de-emphasized the color around the stadium and ditched the gold pants.

Its not terrible, but it isn't good either. I definitely don't think its an NFL color pallet. I think if St. Louis went with the LeBron-Era Cavs colors (gold, navy, wine) it would play better together... but I'm not sure they would be all that unique.

You are literally the first person I have ever seen make this objection.

Really? Makes sense to me! If the Bills ever changed to Teal or added Silver, I'd be upset for them "borrowing" Dolphins or Pats colors. The LA Rams / SF Niners were huge rivals.

Actually much more like giants/dodgers in reverse where the SF fans are indifferent and Rams fans have the inferiority complex. No 9ers fan ever cared about playing the rams as they rarely fielded competitive teams aside from a handful of good seasons in the late 70's/early 80's. Now that Seattle/SF is the biggest rivalry out west StL us basically the odd man out and I don't think bringing them back to LA would help make them relevant as there would still be more raiders fans in LA.

Holy retcon Batman!

The pre-Montana 49ers were a roaring :censored: fire with the exception of the early 1970s and that rivalry was heavily contested up through the 1980s.

I've heard other people say the 49ers = old gold thing.

No further redesigning necessary, other than making the helmet color match the uniform color.

I agree that they should go to a modern equivalent of those. Update the font a little bit so it's not so basic and, as you said, match blues across helmet and uniforms.

So there was a short lived rivalry 30 years ago. Both teams have gone through extended periods of futility and have rarely been competitive at the same time. There is no good criteria for a long standing rivalry between the two clubs.

Those are the best. Wasn't the last game they ever played with those as the full time uniforms a Super Bowl victory?

Aside from playing in the same division for 64 seasons come this fall...

:censored: man, the AFC West doesn't have that long of a run.

If they were to, they need to remove the horns from the sleeves. They're redundant and make no sense when horns are on a ram's head and they're already on the helmet in that regard. Not to mention they look squished with today's sleeve cut. Go with an Arch-like shoulder stripe and move the numbers to the shoulders like the current ones. And maybe remove the white stripe from the pants. They looked very off with all the blue and yellow of the jersey/helmet and no white. Blue and yellow only pants would still work with the white jersey.

In addition, the one blue across the set and updated numbers. Then that'd be pretty good. I prefer the navy/metallic gold, but could live with these changes. Oh, and another personal preference would be black shoes. :)

Shameless plug!

Sexy can I?.

If we see any form of blue and white (with a lack of yellow) it'll be another disaster to what the NFL once looked like. It'd be killer to see a look like this again, and I think Nike would enjoy the bright colors.
