The Los Angeles Rams took the field for Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday looking as if someone forgot to wash their off-white uniforms. The Rams wore a new uniform color that the team dubs “bone,” but that old detergent commercials used to call “dingy.”
“The lighter uniform introduces a first-of-its-kind color called Bone, which reflects the color of an actual Rams horn and the beaches of Los Angeles,” a statement on the Rams website reads.

Fans were indeed beaching about it. Let’s just say that if your uniform is being described over and over with the word “dirty,” you should fire your designer and invest in a truckload of Clorox bleach.
“Is it just me or do the Rams uniforms look like dirty tighty whities?” wrote one Twitter user.
Said another, “Rams ‘bone’ uniforms really look like dirty bedsheets.”

I dont know what color the Rams’ uniforms are. So far I’ve got “not white.”

It’s hard to imagine the designers of the Rams uniforms remaining employed

Football viewers found some pretty creative comparisons, from “pit stain whole shirt,” to Samara, the little ghost girl from Japanese horror movie The Ring, to “Ebeneezer Scrooge’s nightgown.”
Very festive of the Rams to wear uniforms the color of Ebenzer Scrooge’s nightgown

They’re the before color on a Clorox commercial that begins with the narration, are your whites looking dingy? And a fat husband walks by and spills meatball sub on his white shirt and goes aaaauuuuggghhh and frowns.

If the Rams think their uniforms are white, we need to have a long talk about Tide and washing machines.

There are good uniform changes and there are bad uniform changes. Then there is the destruction of the Rams uniforms since the early 2000s. pic.twitter.com/OSGGzWnpOZ

While the Rams’ uniforms came in for the most criticism, it’s not like the Buccaneers looked fashionable either. Some viewers were just as quick to slam the Tampa Bay look, with one online poll asking, “Do tonight’s uniforms for both teams stink?”

And some sports fans pointed out other obnoxious uniform looks, with one Twitter user noting, “The Ram unis aren’t quite as gross as the year the Padres had road uniforms that looked like someone’s cat peed on their home whites.”
The uniforms didn’t seem to bother the Rams, who beat Tom Brady’s Bucs 27-24.
