Maybe the courts will rule otherwise. I'm certainly no legal expert. But the stadium lease has nothing to do with the relocation guidelines being a sham and the Rams the league misleading St. Louis about their intentions. Two separate issues, apples and oranges. After all, weren't San Diego and Oakland working on year-to-year leases? It's not that unusual for teams to work on year-to-year leases. You're still supposed to come up with a reason for moving _ and according to the league's own relocation guidelines, it can't be just to make money. I think Peacock will tell you that until the very end he was encouraged at every step of the way by the league. If the league and the Rams had told St. Louis at the outset that they had "little chance" to keep the team, I don't think the $16 million would have been spent. I think if St. Louis knew that Stan Kroenke was quizzing Jeff Fisher in January 2012 about moving a team, and that Kroenke found his "ideal stadium site" in 2013, they might have approached things differently. Lastly, why would it make sense to shell out $700 million for basically a new stadium on a lease that had only 10 years left on it?
It would not be an issue. Same if Shad Khan has been successful in purchasing the team.
In all honesty, I don't think we have to worry about that.
Avalanche, worst record in hockey. Rams 4-12. Nuggets miss playoffs. Arsenal, down to a tie for sixth in Premier League. His MSL team did make the soccer semis last season.
It's hard to see that happening. 13 college starts. Can he read defense? Deal with disguised coverages? Adjust to the speed of the pro game? Operate effectively under center?
In theory. I repeat, in theory, the size and grandeur of the stadiums isn't supposed to be a factor.
Yeah an underrated factor in the Rams move is how much the networks (specifically FOX), who pay all that money for broadcast rights, wanted the move to happen.
Yes, if Whitworth stays healthy and plays at his prior level and Sullivan proved to be an upgrade at center.
Playoffs? What's that? I don't know. Fisher might surprise you. I don't think he's much of a Demoff fan, that's for sure.
And that timeline, which is all in the 52-page lawsuit, is what some legal experts think could get the Rams and the NFL in trouble.
True that. Cleveland Rams, 1937-45.
So, I guess there will be some hate-watching still in 2017.
Here's the one thing I'll say to LA Rams fans who wish St. Louis fans would just move on. Why is that of any concern to you? You have the Rams. Win or lose, that isn't going to change. Why be all bothered by how St Louis deals with it? Enjoy the team. Enjoy football.
