Quote:
The CVC still wants to negotiate, but they "simply don't have the money" to green light the Rams' proposal, regional chairman Jim Shrewsbury said. The current lease runs through the 2014 season, which means the Rams can go year-to-year starting in 2015.

That sticky situation could lead to calls for a new stadium and perhaps even threats of returning the franchise to Los Angeles.

A lot of people like to pay attention to the supposed threat of the Jaguars moving to LA/London, but they are clearly not the only or even the biggest threat to do so. While I do think the Rams will likely remain in St. Louis, this is a situation to keep an eye on.

Yea, you're looking at this through entirely the wrong perspective. The Rams are more a threat to build a new stadium near St. Louis than they are to move to LA. The LA rumors are baseless.

So stick to your own team, thanks.

He's free to discuss the Rams.

I think this situation clearly indicates that the Rams will go to LA and the Jaguars will go to St. Louis.

I heard this for years as a vikes fan. Reality is, if the rams or any team for that matter, can't get a new state of the art stadium, la rumors and potential threats could exist. Especially for leverage. The rams could use the threat of moving to la as a ploy to get what they want in St. Louis. That strategy worked for mn.

They "simply don't have the money" for a renovation, but they're going to find it for a entirely new stadium? Seems highly unlikely.

I'll discuss what teams I want to discuss.

I said that I do not think the Rams will leave St. Louis. However, the prospect of them relocating should not be completely ignored.

Of the non Cali teams, the rams do make sense as a candidate to move to Los Angeles given the history. Assuming a new stadium deal can't be reached in St. Louis.

Also, given that the Rams haven't finished above 29th in the league in attendance once since all teams started reporting attendance numbers, I can't see the NFL owners voting to allow the Rams to move somewhere outside of the city limits, and run the risk of attendance numbers dropping even lower, as they aren't in a city anymore. So going outside of St. Louis for somewhere that isn't giving the excuse that they "just don't have the money" but still near St. Louis doesn't seem that likely to me. I could be wrong, but that's going to be a really uphill battle.

I love the "new" chippy Greenie Laughing



As for the Rams stadium situation, I doubt they move to LA, even though they make more sense to go there over the Jags and other teams rumored to go there. I think building a new stadium is likely for them. A lot of times the "renovations" are nearly as costly as building a brand new stadium, so if they could get more tax payer money or something it could be a better idea to just build a new stadium.

Kroenke is going to build his own stadium. He likes to own his teams stadiums and I'm pretty sure he does in each of the other sports he owns teams. He not only has the means to do it with minimal outside money but has the ties in many business areas to make it happen. They will also likely stay in St Louis as owning his own stadium in LA is less likely to happen given the area and market for real estate.

The best thing the Rams have going for them right now to avoid a relocation is a good team. Jeff Fisher is forming a very competitive group over there and I can't see them leave if they're a good team.

I don't live in St. Louis. I have no connection to St. Louis. But having been on Rams message boards for the last few years, this is akin to poking the hornets' nest. Nothing stirs up Rams fans(both the remaining Cali fans and the STL fans) like the stupid LA rumors.

Unless you have something credible, there was no reason to add that in there other than to poke the bear.

And yea, I have had more than enough of the bickering that it inevitably causes.

So if you want to discuss every team, go for it...just don't talk out of your arse.

First thing I thought of when I saw the thread was "LA".

They have a history there, the city would embrace them and they would get a fancy new stadium.

Could use that threat as leverage, but I find them more likely than Minny (would seem wrong) and Jacksonville (no ties, its the Jaguars).
