Who Are You Guys? (Top)
We are a group of fans, both young and old, who remember the proud 49-year legacy of the Los Angeles Rams in Southern California.
Why are you doing this?
Southern California has never come closer to bringing the NFL back in the 17 years since the league last had a presence here. We want to make sure that the right team comes back.
Why should the Rams be the team that moves back?
It’s often said that you never forget your first love. For many of us, the Rams were that first love, and we want it known that there is an active and willing fanbase that stands ready to support them once they make a decision to return.
Is a return of the Rams even possible?
Not only possible, but more likely every day. We post new articles on our Facebook and Twitter accounts every day, keeping members updated on the latest developments regarding the proposed football stadiums in downtown L.A. (Farmers Field) or the City of Industry (Los Angeles Stadium at Grand Crossing), as well as stories on the Rams’ current stadium situation in St. Louis.
Why would the Rams move back to Los Angeles?
St. Louis is one of the lower-performing markets among NFL teams, and attendance at the Edward Jones Dome ranks among the lowest in the league. Additionally, the EJD has become one of the league’s most inadequate and outdated facilities. This year, the City of St. Louis must submit a proposal to upgrade the stadium so that it will rank among the top quarter in the NFL. There is no feasible way for St. Louis to meet that threshold, short of building a brand-new stadium.
The Rams turned their back on Southern California. Why should we want them to come back?
The departure of the Rams from Southern California is a bitter subject that still easily stirs hard feelings and passions. But true Los Angeles Rams fans never blamed the team and the players for decisions the ownership made that led them to move to St. Louis.
A new day has dawned for the Rams organization. A new owner, Stan Kroenke, has taken over and the part-time Malibu resident has already looked West during his recent attempt to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Rams are currently exploring their options regarding their future which brings their future in St. Louis into doubt.
How quickly can this happen?
There are two stadium proposals on the table. The Grand Crossing site is ready to go, and only needs a team to commit to moving. The Farmers Field site has made substantial progress, and needs only the certification of an Environmental Impact Report and approval by the L.A. City Council to proceed.
Where do I buy tickets?
We’re not quite at that point yet, but the Rams could be back here as soon as the 2013 season, and we need to be ready.
How do I show my support for the Rams’ return?
There’s plenty you can do. Like our page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/losangelesrams), follow us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/losangelesrams), and visit our website (www.losangelesrams.org).
Are there any events I can come out to?
Yes! We have been able to host several events with former L.A. Ram greats, including Jack Youngblood, Fred Dryer, Greg Bell, Mike Lansford and Ron Brown. We have a calendar of events on our website, and we encourage all of our members to come out and share great Ram memories and spread the word. Keep checking our websites for announcements and please join us in this great effort.
