Yes, I get it. The National Football League has a rule about uniforms, and YES, Rams Executive Vice President Kevin Demoff applied for a waiver for Los Angeles to wear throwbacks in Week 6 against Jacksonville. And YES, the league turned them down.
But seriously, how long is the Rams organization going to get this wrong? Don’t forget, this isn’t a 2017 issue, but it was an issue with Los Angeles fans in 2016 also. In year two of the team back in LA, Demoff still can’t get his team to look like anything other than a group of color blind executives picked these unis out.
It’s a joke, and while I won’t go so far as to say team uniforms affect wins and losses, it does speak VOLUMES about a level of ineptitude that still exists inside the brain-trust in LA and especially with Demoff.
The Rams deserve credit for a lot in 2017, beginning with the hiring of head coach Sean McVay, but something as small as having matching uniforms should have been squared away BEFORE getting to LA. And even if they were planning to continue with most of the St. Louis color scheme, someone should have taken a look at the finished product when they rolled out new helmets.
Is it small potatoes, absolutely.
But if the Los Angeles Rams, who haven’t had a winning season for 13 years don’t want to be a punchline anymore, then don’t dress them like one.
Demoff still doesn’t get it.
