Recently, I created a facebook page entitled "Bring Back the Los Angeles Rams," because (as one who grew up in the LA area) I really think that LA got screwed by that woman. Now, I am very aware that back in the day there was no love lost between the 49ers and Rams, but I have been finding more and more people (in both LA/OC and the Bay Area) that are nostalgic for the "good old days." The Rams and the 49ers had, probably the best rivalry in the NFL during their glory days—as a matter of fact, the Rams-49ers rivalry brought out 102,368 to the Los Angeles Coliseum in 1957 (a record that wan't broken until just recently), a year before the Giants-Dodgers brought their rivalry to the west coast. The reason I bring this up, is that there is a very real possibility that the Rams or another NFC team will be moving to LA within the next few years and I wanted to hear the thoughts of the 49er faithful on the subject. The Rams have new ownership (Stan Kroenke) that clearly wants a new stadium (the EJ Dome is a dump) that STL is not willing to give him and he has many connections to Los Angeles (Philip Anschutz—owner of the LA Kings, LA Galaxy, Staples Center, and Home Depot Center is just one of his connections in Southern California). What do you think? Would you be happy to have the 49er-Rams rivalry renewed?
Also, I would like to remind you that the reason that the Rams left in the first place was because the fans hated that woman and she hated us just as much, and, on top of that, the Rams were in a bad stadium situation not that different from the Candlestick issues of the modern day—both Anaheim Stadium and Candlestick Park were originally built for baseball that were later turned into multi-purpose venues. Oh, and I almost forgot, please DESTROY the St. Louis Rams this year to make the STL fans squirm even more . . . and hopefully we can have our rivalry back again.
Would you like the Rams-49er rivalry to be renewed?
