Weekly Hypothetical: Come up with one can’t-miss Rams promotional giveaway for 2012
When your franchise is fresh off of a 10-38 stretch over three years and has chalked up exactly zero winning seasons in the last eight, it’s probably time to dip into the bag of tricks to get fans in the building. In addition to hiring a new head coach and new GM, the 2012 Rams are banking on the fan giveaway strategy to keep people streaming into the Dome.
Fake Jeff Fisher mustaches, Sam Bradford bobbleheads, James Laurinaitis bobble-necks and 75th anniversary posters are slated to be handed out at home games this season as a quick stopover before landing on eBay, but is that enough?
Adding a fake mustache is a key acquisition for your Halloween wardrobe and your David Freese bobblehead could always use a friend to pal around with, but it will probably take more incentive than that to get people on board the Rams bandwagon, especially if said bandwagon stumbles out of the gate as they have almost every season over the last decade.
The franchise can do more and who better to call upon for suggestions than the JoeSportsFan audience…
The Rams have tasked you with developing one attention-grabbing fan giveaway promotion that you’re confident can draw a full house to the Edward Jones Dome, regardless of the team’s record. What are you going with?
