Rams Welcome Former Oklahoma Sooner Fans

One thing I have noticed through the whole process of courting Sam Bradford, drafting Sam Bradford and having Sam Bradford as a Ram player is that Oklahoma Sooner fans love Sam Bradford.  I think based on geographic location and of course Mr. Bradford, the Rams could be welcoming a large chunk of new fans into the fold.

To say Sam Bradford is well liked in Sooner Nation would be like saying Santa Claus is well liked amongst 3-7 year old children.  Bradford is loved not only for his success on the field, but being well liked off the field as well.  They root for Bradford to do well even now as a St. Louis Ram.

It also helps that Oklahoma is a close proximity to St. Louis compared to other NFL destinations.  The Texas NFL teams are the closest as the crow flies, but it will be a cold day in hell before you find anyone from Oklahoma rooting for anything in Texas.  Kansas City is closer than St. Louis, but Kansas City has not done much to entice any fans outside of KC.

These Oklahoma fans are essentially NFL fan free agents and the Rams will happily pave the way up 1-44 for any of these new fans.

So, allow me to be the first to welcome any fans coming here to Rams Gab or rooting for the Rams for the first time this season who are Oklahoma Sooner fans.  Go Rams!

    Absolutely!! We Sooners love our Sammy B. He is easy on the eye, a great sport and an amazing athlete.We have purchased tickets already to see some Rams home games (later in the season, giving him time), and want to hear about all things Sam Bradford in St. Louis. Nice easy road trip, navy and gold are good colors if your not wearing crimson, and anything is better than puke Texas orange! Thanks for the welcome, we can’t wait to get this going!!

    Because of King Sam, my favorite NFL team is the RAMS! I, too plan on coming to cheer him on, beginning with the Vikings, the first game of the pre-season, can’t wait to see him in a Rams uniform!!! He is a CHAMPION and destined for greatness.

    I traveled 4 hours to watch him play @ OU, so what’s 5 more…..GO RAMS!!!!

    Hell yeah get to see Bradford and AP in the same game! I’d go to that. Bradford reminds me of a young farve anyway. Plays to win and with passion. Any doubters should watch some highlights and see how he’ll do anything to score. Even run thru a tackel do a backflips and put 6 on the board. I just hope they can get a good line to help him out when he gets his shot.

    P.S. Superteam : Bradford ap and Austin. Nuffield said.

    GO Rams
