    Eric Dickerson’s mission to change Rams’s logo: “It looks like a penis”

    Eric Dickerson to the rescue.

    The Hall of Famer and the ex-Rams on the run volunteered to be the voice of fans who were upset with the new logos unveiled on the franchise on Monday.

    “@RamsNFL fans, I have reviewed your comments on the new logos and I share your disappointment”, Dickerson tweeted Wednesday. “I’ll talk to the Rams on our behalf.”

    In the tweet, Dickerson included a couple of alternative logos and asked the fans for their feedback on them.

    Dickerson, Rams’ vice president of corporate development, was even more blunt in an interview with the Los Angeles Times when he spoke of the new ram-headed logo.

    “Someone said it looks like a penis; it did, ”Dickerson told the newspaper. “This says it all there. This should be enough for the Rams to say we were wrong. We will keep what we have. “

    Other common complaints among Rams fans, who have started an online petition to change the logo, is that the main logo showing “LA” with a ram’s horn protruding from the “A” makes it read as “LAC” – or the Los Angeles Chargers, which will share the new SoFi Stadium with the Rams.

    “What L.A. says – which looks like a Chargers logo,” Dickerson told the newspaper. “If I said it was a Chargers logo, I would say OK, it’s not bad. … The [Rams] fans hate it. He just doesn’t like it. Fans are the ones who will wear it. People in the office wear it, but they don’t buy it. “

    The Rams are ready to unveil new uniforms to match the new logos by spring. It remains to be seen if they change the logo before then.

    Meanwhile, Rams’ COO Kevin Demoff said Tuesday during a local telethon that if more than $ 2 million had been raised, he would have read the average tweets about the new logos, according to ESPN. Rams said $ 2,045,000 was raised.

    “I’m sure it will be a surprise. It will be a change,” Demoff said before the logo was presented. “But many things are and I think it’s a change that our fans will know and love over time.”
