On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Rams unveiled their new uniforms for the upcoming 2020 season. The threads come with a new, brighter color scheme, as well as a change in the team's logo. Unfortunately, one prominent former Ram did not agree with the changes.
Rams legendary running back Eric Dickerson, who also serves as their vice president of business development, has expressed his displeasure for his team's new look.
“I’ll say this, the colors are not bad,” Dickerson said during an appearance on AM570 Sports, per CBS Sports' Bryan DeArdo. “If you wanna change the colors, make them look brighter. The uniform’s not bad.”
The Hall of Famer Dickerson also specified what he didn't like with the uniform's latest design.
“I just don’t like the stripe around the sleeve. It’s not big enough. It almost looks like a lightning bolt, like the Chargers’ uniform. I don’t like the stripe down the pants,” Dikerson said.
“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.”
The criticism did not stop there.
“This is football. This ain’t nothing to do with surfing,” he added. “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.”
Early in the offseason, the Rams teased the new uniform designs. In an effort to determine alternative options, Dickerson reached out to fans to try and get feedback as to what they want to have on their jerseys and what the new logo should look like.
Despite the efforts, the Rams decided to keep the original idea for the change and moved forward with their plans. Dissatisfied, Dickerson might have to live with the fact that the team will sport uniforms that, in his own words, is more fitting for extreme water sports than for the gridiron.
