Isaac Bruce To Get Numbered Retired

Paul RaymondCorrespondent IJune 10, 2010

On October 31st, the St. Louis Rams will be retiring the jersey of Isaac Bruce and they’ll be allowing fans on the field during the ceremony. One, I’m glad the Rams will be moving so quickly on retiring Bruce’s jersey, he’s one player that definitely deserves it and should one day be in the NFL Hall of Fame. What’s surprising to me thou is they’ll be allowing fans on the field till you see the catch for getting on the field. It’s all a publicity stunt.

To join Isaac Bruce and others on the field the fans MUST purchase season tickets or make a substantial donation to the Isaac Bruce foundation. The details are as follows.

NEW Season Ticket Holders are allowed on the field for every ticket they purchase. There’s no limit on how many field passes they can receive either, purchase ten season tickets then you get ten field passes.

Current Season Ticket Holders are allowed one field pass for every $250 donation they make to the Isaac Bruce foundation. The Rams will match each donation and that money would be used to purchase tickets to future games.

“I’m excited to be back home, and I’m happy to announce that you can join me on the field during my retirement ceremony,” Bruce said in a statement. “This is a very special experience for me, and I look forward to sharing it with the great fans of St. Louis.”

I don’t like the catch to be a new season ticket holder but hey the NFL is the business and the Rams do have to sell tickets. For current ticket holders I love the idea as it’s for a good cause. The Isaac Bruce Foundation teams with Reach Out St. Louis to fight the high school dropout crisis in the area.
