The Los Angeles Rams did more than beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, they also debuted their $5 billion stadium and
amusement shopping park and a cornucopia of NFL accouterments like jerseys and helmets and logos.
The Rams maligned logo and lukewarm reception on jerseys hit the national airwaves on Sunday and while SoFi Stadium was a safe bet to draw praise (albeit only from people who profit from a successful run at SoFi Stadium since no fans are able to attend the games yet) because the world’s most expensive venue should be impressive, everything else seemed fair game.
Los Angeles played their first game at SoFi in “bone” and reviews were not all kind.

After seeing them in game... the Rams jerseys are still awful— Tashan Reed (@tashanreed) September 14, 2020
The new Rams uniforms and helmet are supposed to be a bold step forward. pic.twitter.com/R4CZrQfZeP— Addicted to Helmets (@addicted2helmet) September 14, 2020
All they had to do was take the throwbacks, add the new helmet, and *poof* you had the perfect rams uniform. But no.... pic.twitter.com/AFIieL5gTl— Chad Fields (Vols Uniform Boy) (@CfieldsVFL) September 14, 2020
Rams have a great uniform and helmet history. Rams uniforms are horrendous. Looks like they were dig out of storage from Holovak&Couglin, Tony Lucci’s or Musinsky’s— Mike Lynch (@LynchieWCVB) September 14, 2020
However, I can’t really control what Twitter decides to show me when I search for results on “Rams jerseys” and similar and people do tend to say tweet things that fall in line with the crowd, so perhaps a large percentage of Rams fans don’t feel as negatively about the uniforms and accessories and whatnot.
There was also a lot of noise seemingly made about LA’s logo at midfield. At least, in some texts I received and a few tweets. Here’s a glimpse:
Here’s s tweet:
This new Los Angeles Rams midfield logo looks like they sell insurance not a football team pic.twitter.com/8wk9EiriPV— (@exavierpope) September 14, 2020
Some were asking to see the blue uniforms, which can obviously be next week when they are on the road, and that’s maybe the extent of initial thoughts on the Rams new digs and digs.
I do think this “7” is messed up though. A “7” isn’t supposed to point like an arrow. This “7” is too top heavy! The top-slash needs to be cut by 50-percent and the whole number needs better posture.
That’s my only criticism of anything.
Have your feelings on the uniforms changed after one game?
