, Calif. (AP) Ever since the Rams came home to Los
Angeles two seasons ago, a big segment of their long-faithful local fan base has
pleaded with them to dress better.

The Rams have listened to their fans’ pleas, and now the NFL is allowing them
to wear their classic blue-and-yellow uniforms five times at the Coliseum this
season.

The Rams will don the franchise’s traditional uniforms in their final five
home games this season, chief operating officer Kevin Demoff announced Friday to
a thrilled throng of Rams supporters at training camp.

”I’m excited for our fans, because their voice was heard in the NFL office,”
Demoff said. ”We’re glad that we were able to deliver for them.”

The Rams’ uniform choices have attracted uncommon scrutiny since mere days
after the team announced its return to California in 2016. Most local fans
fondly remember the Rams in their royal blue jerseys with yellow pants, which
the Rams wore from 1973 until 1999.

The St. Louis Rams won the Super Bowl in the white version of that uniform,
but swapped out that color scheme the next season in favor of a navy-and-gold
look. The Rams tweaked their look when they moved back to LA, and the Rams wore
a hybrid look last season that resembled the blue-and-white look worn by the Los
Angeles Rams from 1964-72, but with accents of the St. Louis gold.

The Rams adopted the classic blue-and-yellow look as their throwback uniform
when they moved home Michael

, and they’ve worn it in two home games apiece
over their first two seasons in the Coliseum. Their fans wanted more, and
they’re getting it.

”(The NFL) understood our fans’ requests about why we wanted to wear
throwbacks more,” Demoff said. ”They saw the passion. We sent them all the
letters, all the discussion from last year.”

The Rams essentially were allowed to swap out their current navy-blue jerseys
for their throwbacks for four games during the upcoming season. The team spent
several games last season wearing what appeared to be mismatched navy jerseys
and pants, and fans were fed up.

They’ll also swap their current white-horned helmets for gold horns while
wearing the throwbacks. The Rams’ headgear also is historic: they have the first
NFL helmets ever to feature a logo, after halfback Fred Gehrke painted the horns
onto the leather helmets in 1948.

After the NFL agreed to the switch this week, the Rams will wear the royal
blue jerseys with yellow ram horns around the shoulders in five of their seven
home games. Their eighth ”home” game is in Mexico City, where the Rams will wear
their yellow ”Color Rush” alternate uniforms.

The Rams will wear their current white home jerseys in their two preseason
home games and their first two regular-season games at the Coliseum in
September. That decision will force their opponents to wear colored jerseys in
the hottest temperatures of the season.

The team also will wear the blue-and-yellow gear with roughly the same
frequency in 2019, Demoff said.

But this franchise’s uniform saga is far from over.

The Rams have long planned to unveil new uniforms when they move into their
palatial new stadium in Inglewood for the 2020 season. Demoff indicated the new
look is likely to be ”a blend” of the classic and the new.

”Certainly we know where the fans’ passion on colors and uniforms are,”
Demoff said. ”But we want to make sure we walk into the world’s newest and most
modern stadium with a uniform design that is reflective of our
history Womens

constructed.”

The Baltimore Ravens gave Robert Griffin III his first start in 19 months
during Thursday's Pro Football Hall of Fame Game against the Chicago Bears, and
it became an emotional moment for the former superstar.The 2012 Offensive Rookie
of the Year has seen his career completely derailed from nagging knee injuries,
but he looked just fine on Thursday. Griffin completed seven passes for 58
yards, one touchdown and one interception. The Ravens won the game, 17-16.After
the game, Griffin talked about how emotional it was for him to be back in game
action for the first time in 19 months, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com."People
don't understand that once you're out of the league for a year, it's really hard
to get back in, especially if you're a quarterback and a high draft pick. It's
just really hard to do.[Thursday] was an emotional day for me, just coming back
out here. I know it's the preseason Dmitry

, it's the Hall of Fame game, but to have an
opportunity to come back out here and play football is something that I really
cherish."Drafted second overall by the Washington Redskins (who surrendered four
draft picks to trade up and land him in a deal with the Rams), in 2012, Griffin
led them to the NFC East title after an excellent rookie year.Griffin tossed
3,200 yards and 20 touchdowns against just five interceptions, while adding 815
rushing yards and seven touchdowns. However, knee injuries began to pile up,
ending his 2012 season and limiting RG3's progression in 2013. He was slowed by
an ankle injury in 2014, and replaced by Kirk Cousins in 2015 after suffering a
concussion. After the Redskins releases Griffin, he signed a two-year deal worth
$15 million with the Cleveland Browns. Sadly Authentic
Justin Bailey Jersey
, Griffin hurt his shoulder and was limited to
five games in 2016. He was released after the season, and wasn't signed by
anybody for the 2017 campaign.But the Ravens are giving Griffin a chance to get
healthy and revive his career. The man is only 28 years of age, and he'll
certainly have the chance to challenge struggling veteran Joe Flacco for the
starting job in 2018 and beyond.We've seen many great athletes have careers
derailed by injuries, but Griffin is battling hard to keep his NFL tenure going.
If he can do that, it would certainly be one of the all-time great comeback
stories. Cheap
