Fans check out the 1973 Rams

July 9, 1973: The fence surrounding the Los Angeles Rams training camp at Cal State Fullerton is a popular gathering place for kids of all ages.

After the first day of training camp, staff writer Bob Oates reported:

Tom Mack and eight other veterans remained unsigned Monday as the Rams began practice under their new coach, Chuck Knox, for their 28th season in California…

After a morning of medical examination, Knox led 52 players through the summer’s first workout Monday afternoon at the new Ram camp, Cal State Fullerton.

There were 37 rookies and 15 veterans, including quarterback John Hadl and wide receiver Jack Snow.

“They had a good attitude for the first day,” Knox said. “Now what we have to do is keep it.”…

The 1973 Los Angeles Rams finished with a 12-2 record, losing to the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League Divisional playoffs 27-16.
