While excitement and good intentions regarding rams should be supreme, they may well have pissed off one of their legends.
Eric Dickerson, a Hall of Fame who appeared with the Los Angeles Rams from 1983-87, said he probably won’t be watching the Super Bowl 2022 from SoFi Stadium after the team offered him “tickets in the rafters.”
Dickerson had some feuds with his former team, but the relationship appears to have recovered in the past few years. Maybe not.
“In Section 480,” Dickerson said during an interview on Radio Raw this week with CBS Sports. “I said, I’d rather stay home and watch it.”
Dickerson, a No. 29 who was retired by the Rams, fought the team during the Jeff Fisher era, when Dickerson was banned from being on the sidelines on game days. After Fisher was fired in 2016, Dickerson signed a one-day contract — more than 20 years after he last fell — with Los Angeles as a way to mend the relationship.

When interviewer Maggie Gray said she was “shocked” by the news, Dickerson’s response was unequivocal.
He said, “I am not.”
