Eric Dickerson is the voice of Rams’ fans everywhere ... and that isn’t always great for the franchise.
The Rams’ Hall of Fame running back and team employee is brutally honest and not afraid to share his opinion. When it comes to the team’s new uniform reveal on Wednesday morning, Dickerson — who is currently the Rams’ vice president of business development — was not impressed and was ready to voice his disgust. Judging by our poll, most of you aren’t impressed with them, either.
Dickerson said parts of their uniforms are too similar to SoFi Stadium neighbor-team, the Chargers, and said the team’s trademark horns now “look like two bananas.” Dickerson was also confused by what he thinks is a surfer style in an interview with radio station, AM570 Sports, via CBS sports. He started off tame.
“I’ll say this, the colors are not bad,” Dickerson told the station. “If you wanna change the colors, make them look brighter. The uniform’s not bad ...”
Then Dickerson got rolling.
“I just don’t like the stripe around the sleeve. It’s not big enough,” he said. “It almost looks like a lightning bolt, like the Chargers’ uniform. I don’t like the stripe down the pants; I wish it was bigger. And the horn, man, it’s horrible. I just feel like they really took away from the Rams’ uniform. And it looks almost like the Chargers’ logo. It looks like two bananas … This is football. This ain’t nothing to do with surfing. This ain’t nothing to do with waves. This is football. This is a man’s sport. And to me, it just looks soft. It don’t look like football. It don’t look hard.”
This isn’t the first time this offseason that Dickerson objected to the Rams’ brand. He wasn’t a fan of their new logo back in March.
Remember, this is a team employee putting the Rams on blast here. Who does Dickerson think he is, a legend or something?
