In perhaps the most odious sales pitch since Trump Steaks were on the market, the Los Angeles Rams sent an email to fans in St. Louis, the city they recently fled, advertising the team’s gear.
The merchandise featured in the ad displayed only the Rams logo, although the top of the email read “The Official Store of the Los Angeles Rams.”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch received emails from irate readers who understandably perceived the solicitation to be a slap in the face.
“When I got this email, I thought at first someone was playing a sick joke on me,” said fan Joseph Nassif. “When I realized it was from the Rams, I was shocked.”
Another fan, Mark Towey, attributed the faux pas directly to Rams COO Kevin Demoff.
“Please tell Kevin Demoff where he can place his hat,” Towey said.
