The Los Angeles Rams will be hosting the San Francisco 49ers this weekend for the NFC Championship. This All-California match-up and division rivalry pits two teams against that are six hours and 382 miles apart, against each other. Although that sounds like a long drive to me, especially in terms of California traffic, I would expect there to be a strong Scarlet & Gold contingent. That was the plan until the Rams made a change. They have rescinded the ticket policy. The Los Angeles Rams want to make sure that they don't have to face a lot of San Francisco 49ers fans in SoFi stadium when the two teams meet Sunday. The Rams announced that public sales of tickets for the game in Inglewood, CA "will be restricted to residents of the Greater Los Angeles region. Residency will be confirmed by the address on the credit card account." That doesn't mean that only Rams fans live in Los Angeles but, one might expect the percentage of Rams fans to be higher. I wonder if some LA residents might try to sell their tickets to 49ers fans and make a hefty profit. Well, if you haven't bought tickets lately then you wouldn't know that it's all electronic. A scannable code is sent to your smart phone for each ticket purchased. No print outs or paper tickets anymore. Yes generally you can transfer your tickets to someone else , from phone to phone, but I wonder if they've figured out a way to block the transfer of tickets to someone that does not have a Los Angeles address. That wouldn't surprise me.
