From the St. Louis view, it's really all about what that ownership group thinks of St. Louis, more than anything else.
I would have to imagine that the team Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) and his business partner Dany Garcia are assembling will see pretty quickly based on their research that St. Louis would be a no-brainer for a team, considering the response via attendance, ticket sales, merchandise sales, etc.
The news that Jim Thomas had this morning about The Dome being in preliminary talks with the revamped league is a good sign, but it doesn't guarantee anything.
If the league balks at the cost The Dome charges, for example, that could perhaps lead to the league looking elsewhere.
Just too early to say.
There's no doubt that St. Louis proved it will support a non-NFL team, which is no surprise considering how it supported a terrible NFL team led by a man who was determined to steer the team out of town.
I hope the BattleHawks get another shot, and if the new leadership group was on top of its game, it would get Kurt Hunzeker back to lead the operation again. I'm not sure he can wait around that long, though.
