NFL Denies Rams' Throwback Uniform Request For Opener

NFL Denies Rams' Request To Wear
Throwback Uniform In Home Opener
The NFL turned down the Rams' request to wear throwback uniforms from their '99 Super Bowl championship season in their '08 home opener, according to Jim Thomas of the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH.  The league "requires more than a year of lead time before a team can wear throwbacks," and Rams Owner Chip Rosenbloom said that he is "not upset with the NFL." Rosenbloom: "I think that it was really asking a lot. But we have some other plans for the future." Rosenbloom wanted the Rams to wear the throwback uniforms as "part of a variety of ways planned to commemorate'' late team Owner Georgia Frontiere.  Rosenbloom said that the team is "finalizing plans to have players wear a commemorative patch on their uniform sleeves" this season to honor Frontiere (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 4/7).

TITANS: In Tennessee, Jim Wyatt reported the Titans "unveiled a 10-year logo Friday that will be featured in a patch on their uniforms this fall." The logo also will appear on merchandise and in team publications and "could also appear on a flag and in other areas" at LP Field this year (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 4/5).
