Nick Swardson Vikings Superfan Roasts the Rams ... Thanks for Case Keenum!

11/21/2017 7:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Swardson is a die-hard Vikings fan -- "I like the Vikings more than my family."

So, when we asked how he felt about Vikings QB Case Keenum leading his team to victory over the team that let him go last year, the Rams -- Swardson was LOVING it. 

Backstory ... the Rams let Keenum go after the 2016 season after benching him for Jared Goff. The Vikings swooped him up and the rest is history. 

Now, with the Vikings 8-2 and likely playoff bound ... Swardson's pumped -- but there's one prediction he refuses to make.

EXCLUSIVE

The Rams have returned to L.A. after stomping the Cardinals in London ... and as you'd expect, head coach Sean McVay was in a GREAT mood! 

WARNING: Our photog was SUPER excited (big Rams fan) and fanboy'd out a little too hard when talking with Jared Goff

But he settled down by the time McVay came by -- and talked to the 31-year-old head coach about how the Rams (and Goff) are taking the league by storm. 

McVay couldn't have been nicer -- and even humored our photog when he was babbling on about Janet Jackson

Ex-Rams WR Suspect In L.A. Armed Robbery

10/6/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-L.A. Rams WR Deon Long -- who was featured on "Hard Knocks" when he got cut for bringing a woman to his dorm room -- is now a suspect in an armed robbery, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Long's firing became a viral moment when then-coach Jeff Fisher ripped him for violating the team's "no female guests in the room" rule during training camp. 

Now, law enforcement sources tell us the 26-year-old is suspected of pulling a gun on a man in a craigslist transaction that had gone bad over a duffel bag. 

We're told the alleged victim told police he met up with Long to sell him the bag -- but instead of producing cash, Long whipped out a pistol and made off without paying. 

Cops are now investigating. We've also reached out to Long for comment, so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Eric Dickerson thinks the Chargers relocating to Los Angeles was a HUGE mistake ... telling TMZ Sports the Bolts are "no factor" in Hollywood.

We spoke with the Rams Hall of Famer about whether there's enough love to go around for both teams in L.A. ... and E.D. made it clear there's no competition to attract new fans.

"First of all, the Chargers are no factor," Dickerson says. "I hate to say that, I mean ... the Chargers don't even have Chargers fans in San Diego."

"I don't see the Chargers having a lot of success here in L.A., just to be honest with you."

Meanwhile, Rams fever is catching on in Los Angeles in a big way -- especially if they keep winning.

6/29/2017 8:13 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's video of the moment Jeff Fisher told his Rams coaching staff he was just fired -- and Fisher was extremely emotional ... telling his coaches, "Sorry if I let you guys down."

The footage was shot during Week 14 of the 2016 NFL season (on or around Dec. 11) -- Fisher is breathing heavily and trying to collect himself before breaking the news in a team meeting room.

It's clear his staffers were completely blindsided by the announcement.

He promises he'll do everything he can to help get the other coaches new jobs.

In the video -- captured for this season's "All or Nothing" documentary on Amazon -- you can see assistant coach Mike Singletary walk up to Fisher to shake his hand and thank him. 

The Rams have since replaced Fisher with 31-year-old Sean McVay. Fisher is currently unemployed. 

L.A. Rams Rookies Crash 'Friends' Set ... Diversity Ensues!

6/20/2017 3:52 PM PDT

You're looking at the most black people ever on the set of "Friends" ... courtesy of the L.A. Rams!

The Rams' rookie class hit up the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, CA on Monday for a spectacular VIP tour of the backlot ... which included Central Perk.

Serious question ... these guys are in their early 20s. Do you think any of them have ever seen a full episode of "Friends"?

Doesn't matter ... the guys had a blast anyway visiting other iconic Warner Bros. movie stuff --- including Harry Potter's broom, the Batmobile and more!

WR's Cooper Kupp and Shakeir Ryan even went behind bars in the jail cell from "Suicide Squad."

Other must-dos ... visit the Hollywood sign, survive an earthquake, go to the Walk of Fame and leave disappointed and get stuck on the 405.

Welcome to L.A.!

Chargers Players To L.A. Fans CHOOSE US OVER RAMS NOW ... We Don't Want Bandwagon Love Later

3/16/2017 10:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chargers players Donavon Clark & Tyrell Williams are throwing down the gauntlet to L.A. football fans ... saying the time is now to choose their team, 'cause the bandwagon will be full at a later date.

We got the guys out at Pink's Hot Dogs in L.A. (football players gotta eat) and asked them how Tinseltown pigskin fans are supposed to make their decision between the Chargers and Rams.

It's a good question ... L.A. hasn't had a team in FOREVER, and now there's two, so the city could be thrust into an all-out football civil war.

Clark and Williams say no matter how you make your decision ... MAKE IT NOW ... 'cause they're planning on winning a lot of games and don't want fans who just root for the trendy team.

This is L.A. guys, trendy is our middle name.

Lindsey Vonn's Boyfriend Parts Ways with L.A. Rams

Breaking News

Lindsey Vonn's brief stint as an L.A. Rams fan might already be over -- because her boyfriend is no longer a member of the coaching staff ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Kenan Smith was an offensive assistant coach with the team for a couple years until late last season ... when he was promoted to tight end coach. 

But with head coach Jeff Fisher getting the ax ... it seems Smith did too.

No word on where he'll go next -- but don't worry, with a few years of NFL coaching experience under his belt, he should be fine. 

And until then, he's traveling the world with his smokin' hot Olympic legend girlfriend and learning how to ski ... so yeah, don't feel bad at all

You smile. I smile. We smile.

Jared Goff Runs NFL Combine Crash Course ... With NFL Hopefuls

2/13/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Here's Rams QB Jared Goff giving back to the community, helping some NFL hopefuls (who will probably be millionaires one day) get ready for the NFL combine.

Goff headed to Oaks Christian School -- a high school in the L.A. area -- and tossed the pigskin around with some aspiring pros earlier this month including Florida State's Jesus "Bobo" Wilson and Quincy Adeboyejo from Ole Miss.

The guys were training as part of a program from Sports Academy L.A. and we're told when Goff heard about it, he decided to chip in and give them specific notes on the NFL combine process.

Also getting some #1 pick tutelage was Matt Corral ... a high school junior who's nationally ranked as one of the top 5 QB's in the 2018 class.

Pretty cool of Goff to do ... but judging by last season the whole Rams team should be out there with him.

EXCLUSIVE

Brutal honesty from Eric Dickerson to Ezekiel Elliott Thursday night -- with the Hall of Famer telling the Cowboys star he's GLAD he didn't break one of his rushing records and he hopes he NEVER does!

The two superstars came face-to-face at the Madden Party in Houston -- when we brought up the fact that Zeke came just 178 yards shy of breaking E.D.'s single season rookie rushing record.

Dickerson LOVED IT ... and said bluntly, "No one wants their records broken!"

Zeke told the legend he's coming for his 2,105 all-time single season record ... Dickerson's rooting against that too!!

Gotta love it.

EXCLUSIVE

Only ONE running back can be the true king of L.A. ... and Chargers' Melvin Gordon says he's ready to do battle with Rams star Todd Gurley

The L.A. Chargers running back says he's got nothing but respect for Gurley -- but it's clear in the clip, he wants to be known as #1. 

Gurley made the Pro Bowl last year. Gordon made the Pro Bowl this year. 

So, who's got the advantage? 

"We'll figure it out next year," Gordon says ... "Ain't no more talkin'. We'll let the work do the talk."

By the way, Gordon is awesome in this clip -- he claps back at Jack Youngblood (who said the Chargers don't belong in L.A.) and even gives his friend, Jay Ajayi, a cameo.
