Rams exec: 'Complete uniform change' might happen

Are the St. Louis Rams contemplating a uniform overhaul? Team executive Kevin Demoff says it's in the works.

"I think at some time in the next five years, you'll see a complete uniform -- throwback and current uniform -- change," Demoff, the Rams' executive vice president of football operations, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this week. "I'd be surprised if we didn't have it."

Said Demoff: "Like everything else, you're trying to elicit emotion from your fans, and our uniform colors seem to do that on a daily basis. There's not a day that goes by that there's not a uniform question or comment on the Internet."

The Rams fared well in Dameshek's "Greatest Uniform in NFL History" contest. The franchise's blue, yellow-gold and white threads from the 1973 to 1980 era reached the final eight of the contest before falling victim to the Carolina Panthers' 2012 alternates.

The Rams' colors haven't changed much since the team bolted Cleveland for Los Angeles back in 1946. A mix of gold and yellow hues have intermingled with millennium blue and white. The signature horns curling around the helmet have been a mainstay, too, and it doesn't sound like they're going away.

"The horns have always been part of what we've done," Demoff said.
