    Actually, when I did a google search for the image it turned out to be from the first game EVER at the Edward Jones Dome, in 1995; maybe when the stadium where the Rams and Chargers is complete it'll have similar attendance for its inaugural game.

    The biggest problem both the Rams and Chargers have is that they COMBINED for only half a seasons worth of wins last year, so we're back to WLAFs problem: Few people enjoy the novelty enough they'll pay top dollar to watch bad football. Maybe if the 4-12 2016 Rams become 13-3 SB Champs a year later (like the 4-12 1998 St. Louis Rams) Angelinos won't decide they'd rather spend their money watching the Lakers (16X Champions) Dodgers (currently 9½ games ahead of Arizona in the NL West) or Angels (currently 14 games behind Houston in the AL West, though it's still weird to think of the 'Stros as an "AL" team.)
    Oh, valid point. I thought you meant all starters, you should take the time to be more descriptive, don't be shy. Jaded

    Right, that was never in dispute. It was also a brand new stadium.

    Default So much winning

    Rams can't fill up LA Coliseum just 18 hours after USC did

    https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2017/9/...seats-chargers



    The Los Angeles Rams are trending upward. A rocky first season in L.A. gave way to a 1-0 start in 2017. Last year’s worst offensive team exploded for 46 points against the Colts, giving former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff his first win as a starting quarterback and setting the tone for a promising year.

    The local fans, however, haven’t seemed to notice.

    The Rams hosted Washington on Sunday in front of a mostly-empty stadium, casting doubt on whether the City of Angels is a premier market for one NFL franchise, let alone two. The red and white seatbacks of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum were plainly visible throughout the first quarter as a smattering of fans took in the action live.

    Really thought more fans would come out this week after the Rams routed the Colts, and looked exciting, last week. With 5 min left in 1 qtr. pic.twitter.com/qExfbsFVgF

    For comparison’s sake, here’s what the Coliseum looked like less than 24 hours earlier, when a college team with an actual fanbase took the field.



    This marked the second straight week where Rams players were greeted by a sea of empty seats. Tickets for last week’s game against the Colts were as cheap as $6, but there were few interested buyers.

    The Coliseum is the Rams’ temporary home through 2019, when they and the Chargers will move into the under-construction Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park. Attendance figures aren’t much rosier for the San Diego transplants in their first season up north. Despite playing in a soccer-first stadium that seats only 27,000 spectators, the club failed to sell out of tickets for its home opener.

    Lol @ comparing college attendance. You could build a 150k seat stadium for bigger colleges and fill it.

    Wrong as ever.

    No wonder you keep asking me to post this somewhere else.

    Why don't you all just friggen ignore the thread and let Shane talk to himself?
    “It’s called DEFWU, ‘Don’t ever f*** with us,'” Wolfe concluded of just what it is with this team. “We aren’t going to go looking for a fight, but if you want a fight, we’re gonna fight you.”
